I am going to talk to you seriously about feminising medication.
I don’t know if any of you are serious about really becoming girls, but if you are, here below is a typical transsexual MtoF feminizing medication regimen, which I am following myself:
Feminising Medication Regimen
1. 4 mg Estradiol (Estrofem) (sublingually – under the tongue) daily – one in morning, one in evening
2. Two 50 ug (mcg) Estradiol (Estrodot) patches applied weekly Saturday morning and Tuesday evening, or any other two days in the week, three and a half days apart – but stick to the same days each week.
3. 5 mg Finsasteride in the morning (in the U.K., you can get this from your G.P. on the NHS, if you have a dodgy prostate – BHP – Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia).
4. 25 mg Spironolactone (Spirotone) in morning, 25 mg Spironolactone in evening
– building up to 50 mg Spironolactone in morning, 50 mg Spironolactone in evening after 6 weeks.
5. (Optional) Progestin : 5 mg daily for 10 days at beginning of the month.
PLEASE NOTE: I am not a doctor or medically trained. You should NOT start taking feminizing hormones unless you are absolutely sure you want to do this. In my case it came from somewhere so deep down in my psyche and subconscious that it was inevitable that I would do it eventually.
It SHOULD be done under medical supervision. If you don’t want your transition to be medicalised and controlled by an ‘expert’ gender identity clinic, involving psycho-sexual psychiatrists and psychologists, endocrinologists and SRS/GRS surgeons, whether private (or if you are in the U.K., at an NHS clinic such as the one at Charing Cross Hospital), you can obtain the feminising hormones from a reputable Internet supplier such as InHousePharmacy – I can recommend this company without reservation. They deliver anywhere in the world, it’s the real proprietary medicine, and thay are prompt and reliable on delivery. In the U.K., you may have to pay 20% V.A.T. plus £8 handling charge to the Post Office when you import the drugs, but this is quite hit and miss. The last two deliveries from InHouse Pharmacy I had to pay it, but on the most recent one I didn’t, so it seems to depend on the efficiency (or otherwise) of the local Post Office.
It is wonderful and truly liberating that one can control one’s own feminizing drug regimen, and it has only been possible to do this since the advent of the Internet – certainly no one could do it in the 1970s, 1980s,or 1990s – or I might have started a lot sooner.
BUT, and here is a very important point, you should still at least tell your G.P. what you are taking, in case there is any conflict with other medication. My G.P. (a woman, fortunately), knows what I am doing, and so far she has been pretty good about it, though I am waiting to see what she says about the full transsexual drug regimen, as above. She probably won’t be that pleased, as taking female hormones has well-known risks associated with it for women or men. If becoming the woman you have always felt yourself to be is important enough to you, you will no doubt proceed in spite of the risks – but be aware of them.
I was surprised to realise recently, looking back on my invoices from Inhouse Pharmacy http://www.inhousepharmacy.vu/transgender/transgender.html that I have been taking female hormones for over 5 years, so I guess it’s not surprising that I have boobs and a curvy shape – my hips have broadened, and my fat distribution is pretty female – my arms and legs look feminine, and it has also feminised my face.
I did not begin with the full pre-SRS MtoF transsexual feminising regimen as above, but started with just 2 mg of Estradiol (Estrofem or Progynova) for most of that time, building up to 4 mg per day. That is enough to promote breast growth – you start to see the difference after 6-9 months.
I was lucky in that I started with a fairly un-masculine body to begin with – I an not that tall, I can wear a normal female size of shoes, and I have always had broad hips and rather narrow shoulders, and not much musculature – so my body lapped up the female hormones from the beginning. I am also blonde, which means that body hair has not been a great problem, and it has now reduced to a female level anyway.
I have had quite a lot of laser hair removal treatments to get rid of facial hair, and can now manage with only light foundation or no foundation at all. I will probably also have to have electrolysis eventually to get rid of the remaining facial hair, as I want to look as natural a woman as possible. I would love also to have facial feminisation surgery, but I am frightened to do it. My face is reasonably feminine anyway.
I am able to go shopping en femme with my wife, and I don’t get stared at. I guess I just look like a woman. My wife says when we are shopping and she looks round, she just sees another woman – and doesn’t always realise it’s me!
I have my own shoulder length blonde hair, and so don’t have to wear a wig, and my boobs are big enough to give me some cleavage. I dress sensibly, and wear what other women around my age wear. It’s great to be able to spend as long as I want looking at lingerie and women’s clothes and shoes without feeling embarrassed! I have VISA debit and credit cards in my female name, so paying is no problem. I am working hard on developing a feminine voice – more on this is a future blog.
I hope this has been some help to a few of you – please do let me know by commenting.
