>>360409Damn, you beat me to it! /hitlergruß
no way yo
Hi seedy,How have you girls transitioned from guyish hair to girl hair?Currently I have a pixie ish cut, but after finding out that hair grows around 5 to 6 inches a year, I never ever want to cut it, knowing how long it'll take to grow out a full set of (long) hair.Any one have any ideas or experience for how to wear my hair while I also go through my normal transition, to at least let it grow without cutting it?I've been on hormones for a year or so and meeting to consult with my FFS surgeon soon actually, but not fully passing at the moment, so just kinda wondering how I could grow it without drawing too much attention.
You have to go through the awkward hair growing stage which takes like a year and a half or so, depends how slow or fast your hair grows and you just have to deal with it until it gets longer down to like your shoulders. You should go to a hair stylist and get it styled so that it can grow right. Tell the stylist you want to grow it long. If you don't want it long then you have to get styled for a short hair style, but then it wont grow right if you ever decide to grow it out. So like I said you just have to deal with the awkward stage of hair growth.
>>360930I love your question. So I'll one up it. What on earth do you do when your hair doesn't grow in a feminine way?! My hair is thick, dry, and moderately curley; and it takes, at very least, 4-6 months to grow and curl below my earlobes.How fucked am I.
>>360943hrt should slightly change new hair growth, but of course that's going to take a while.There is a whole industry out there to help you have close to the hair you want, the only thing you can't easily change is the hairline
what does it take to meet traps without going to gay bars? im very in the closet and want to keep discretion to a maximum, but really want to explore that part of my sexuality. I'm in toronto and have had no luck using the web to meet one.
Its 2013 OP why are you wanting to use discretion? You live in a place like Texas or Florida?
>>360873hes a closet gay who doesnt want anyone knowing that he sucks dick
>>360807Hire an escort ,thats the only way how you can keep your discretion and not hurt someone.
that seems to be the balance, If you want to have sex with a transsexual you have to let her in your life, let her meet your family and friends or she'll feel like you're ashamed to be with her. I'm sure your friends will act transphobic but im sure half of them want to experiment
One day I'mma bag a tgirlMy whole family already knows I like em (but not full-blown dudes), so it'll be easy to just be like 'Yup, finally found one'
I've gotten a bit worried about my voice, I very rarely speak, maybe 5-15 minutes per week for the last 3-5 years (on phone, I mostly just say yes/no and similar every now and then), I've also had some irritation in my throat which at times ached (or was painful), the doctor said it was streptococcus but never treated it.Well anyway, yesterday I just felt like seeing how my voice worked, I mean more overall, not really a female voice just generally seeing how well it worked. I noticed that even remotely high tones just cut off, there's no sound, just the sound of air going through my throat. So yeah, I wonder if this is normal before any practice at all, or if my voice cords are damaged or are just incapable of doing high tones permanently.TL;DR: If I try doing remotely high tones my voice doesn't work, there's just air coming out without any real sound. I wonder if this is normal, or if my vocal cords are permanently damaged.
>>360911it's not unusual, but go to a doctor and get your strep treated anyway.
>>360925It was a few months ago, and last time it ached was probably at least a month ago, so it has probably treated itself.Anyway, I noticed it's the same thing for low tones, the only sound that comes out is air, or mostly.>it's not unusualOk, so practicing will give me a voice at higher tones? How do I practice this (Yes I know youtube, still)?
>it's not unusual
Im going to start to self med, and I get that a regular daily dose is 4mg estrofem, 2mg and 200mg spiro at around 100mg twice every daybut I dont just want to take the pills without knowing exactly how it all worksare there some good sites with info about this?other stuff i could take? different horomones I could take or more "potent" ones?potents not the right word, more effective I mean.and I like having a dick, so will it shrink?can i keep it from not?how about boobs, I mean, how big can they get? can you kinda regulate how big they get?I DONT KNOW WHAT IM DOING AND I NEED HELP
>>360602>try the doctors.IF I COULD SEE A DOCTOR I WOULDNT BE SELF MEDDING
>try the doctors.
>>360723Please dont transition.
you're dick can get smalleryou can't regulate the boobs and maintain proper levels of estrogen, you can only cut it so that you don't have E in your system all the time (2mg)best to self med with is probably patches, I'm assuming you haven't injected yourself before
>>360590Do the bloodwork when on that schedule. Check for LH, Prolactine, Tst(overall, not free), E(overall, not free), since you're taking spiro you should check electrolytes.If any of your relatives had trombosis and/or hyperlipidemia, then check haemostasis and/or triglycerides. Ideally you should check your liver, but even some doctors ignore this step for unknown reason.Reference levels are all over the internet.Healthy diet helps healthy puberty, which is weird. Increase folic acid income: it increases your sensitivity to estradiol and prevents you from having anemia. Less potassium, if spiro. Ideally hepatoprotectors, since you're using oral estrogen.It's better to limit smoking and alcohol-eing: alcohol doubles effect on liver, smoking tobacco has bad effect on blood circulation. Your aim is hormone levels, not amount of hormones taken, so change it depending on the results.>but I dont just want to take the pills without knowing exactly how it all worksYou want exactly? There are many articles on the internet. And lots of cool books.>different horomones I could take or more "potent" ones?There is cheap and potent hormone - ethinylestradiol. Has lots of side effects and destroys your liver. >and I like having a dick, so will it shrink?Well, surgeons say it can.They also propose the way to evade this: to get more erections.

maybeIm going to start self meding withestriadolhttp://www.inhousepharmacy.biz/p-333-progynon-depot-10mg.aspxand I cant decide between fincar and spiroany suggestions?On a related note,I like having a penis, (yeah its weird, likes having a dick and is transtiioning)so how do I go about losing as little penis length/girth/ballsas possible
Fap erryday. If worse comes to worse and tear it off, you will grow a new one.Do spiro, and you'll probably lose the sex drive in a month.
I'm assuming there are other late transitioners with this problem. In order to maintain any semblance of femininity in my upper body I have to constantly hold my shoulder blades down and arms slightly back. Does this awkwardness ever go away, I.e. Muscles build and this becomes more automatic? Been on hormones for five months and this is by far my biggest issue.
>>360823well in my perception for some people male puberty really goes into second gear during their twenties. Meaning really thin guys suddenly become masculine men. Maybe it has something to do with working out though...
>>360812I~f your face and voice pass it doesn't matter.
>>360831This. I've fairly wide shoulders, and even though I hate them, nobody even notices them. It's all in your head bro. Besides, if anything, get fat grafts to your hips. Done that to my butt, very happy with it. Next up, breast implants. Can't fucking wait.
>>360832How long do you have fat grafted to your hips? Did some of the fat goes away after some time?
>>360830That's not like bone sizes and etc though. It's more like bone shape, and muscle.
After years of pain I finally had my letter written and faxed to the endocrinologist.Don't give up.
>>360783you are very luckyI wish I lived in Americaafter years of pain im still self medicating with a psychiatrist who won't even give me blood tests :(
>>360784I'm actually Canadian. East coast. That sounds more like a problem with your medical "professional" than America, but then again I wouldn't know
>>360786Here, getting the letter is easy, the hardpart is waiting for the endo.

>>360794Yeah damn =/ Idk, go into body-less creature mode for a while, yeah it's totally a mode. You are not your body anymore than you are that tree =P I always feel weird commenting(not because I just said some weird shiz lol) because idk how other people have it, like just because this went this way for me doesn't mean it's gonna be your solution or how you get through it, so I feel limited in trying to help. Yeah those visible changes are like it, what we're doing here. Even though I started passing to the old people that come into the hotel, I was like "so what?" I don't pass all of the time by any means, these people don't really matter. Yeah idk, just I do feel like I will be able to live a nice life even if I never really "get there" all the way, I'll find people who love me as a woman/for who I am. I'll always have some issues with not being a "real woman" but I think I can still find happiness, and do periodically lol, even just from one moment to the next. Idk, I eat a lot of psychedelic drugs(including "micro-dosing" which is where I take like a nearly sub-threshold dose of a psychedelic like shrooms or cactus, a dose you can like almost not feel, it really makes for a nice positive day and such) and I think they help me get through stuff a lot, like get through not-fun stuff and also help me be more open and have positive feelings and thoughts about the future and things in general and the possibilities in life, but like I said idk. I'm not trying to recommend them really cuz who knows how it would go for someone else lol. I <3 'em though. So I'm going to stop blabbing maybe now.
>>360797Oh and I feel like I didn't touch on the good things that happen enough either, cuz there are lots of cool things when things do start turning around. Still will have to deal with stuff but they certainly help "make it worth it" as if you had a choice anyway lol. Like I did get excited when I first started passing to those old people, I was like wow really? =D but yeah, just , things do get better =) the ups and downs got really extreme for me for a while, less extreme now haha. Here <3
I'm similar, although I've been on hormones for over a year and a half.Slowly getting happier with my body, but the happier I get with the rest of the body the more dysphoric I get with the tumour between my legs. Can't wait for that horrible disgusting lump of skin to get removed

>>360800>>360801sorry guys, 420chan said the post fucked up so I posted a new one. nb
The process of being diagnosed and medicated is long, painful and somewhat costly here in Canada.I turn 21 tomorrow, and I would like to self-medicate. Before worrying about side-effects and dosage, I need a reliable online source for purchasing cheap hormones and anti-androgens. Kliovance and some Spiro was on my mind, but I'm still looking into alternatives.tl;dr where to buy estrogen and anti-androgen online without prescription and have it shipped to CANADA.
I think somebody said QHI shipps to Canada.
>>360741Thanks. Placed order for 2 month supply, cost about 85$. Should be here in 2 to 3 weeks.They only had Progynova (Estradiol Valerate) and Spironolactone.I'll buy another 2 months after the first month just to be safe.I plan on taking 2 x 2mg Progynova and 1 x 100mg Spiro per day.Any tips?>tfw making this order on the day of my birth, 21 yrs ago.
>tfw making this order on the day of my birth, 21 yrs ago.
>>360742I lied it's actually a 3 month supply for that 85$. Definitely cheap @ 28$ a month.
>>360742Yeah, don't take progynova sublingually.
>>360749Wasn't planning on it but you got me curious why not?
Has anyone tried T3 (synthetic thyroid hormone)? Do you think it affected your HRT results at all? I recently started to take T3 to make myself underweight so that I could regain fat in a completely female pattern after, and to shrink any remaining muscle.
>>360785rip thyroidrip op
>>360785the only effect it will have is on your liver, as long as you don't go completely dumb and take more than the recommended dosage.
I was on hrt for about one year taking 200mg spiro + 4mg Estro and recently, I started to take 25mg cyproterone instead of spiro. For about one month I felt my mood became a lot better than It was before and my skin improved a lot. I was very careful with potassium for the entire year I took spiro.Thing is, three days ago, I was watching TV and for about one entire hour I felt short of breath. When I tried to measure my pulse I noticed I had irregular heartbeat. At that time, I felt somewhat nervous and paranoid and I don't know if that's the reason my heart skip some beats. I think I felt the same thing again this morning, but I'm not sure if I'm just freaking out.Is there any reason or chance of cypro causing arrhytmia? Am I too paranoid? Anyone can give me some advice of what to do? Should I go back to spiro?
>>360725I get that at times, but I was on spiro before switching to cypro, and the spiro did the same thing, but even worse. idk if it's a left over side effect of the spiro or cypro has a similar effectI'm pretty sure that cypro has a mild potassium-sparing effect kind of like spiro and that's what's causing it. try reducing your potassium in take
Take licorice root. Lower your dosage to 12.5mg of cypro. Or don't. Twelve miligrams should be plenty for anyone especially after E has given the negative-feedback loop some serious attention. YOUR BODY NEEDS T DAMNIT!
