What are some alternatives to Utrogestan for #trans #hrt?

Evie (SleepyCatten)

If you're taking cyproterone acetate to block testosterone as part of feminising HRT, the recommended maximum daily dosage is 6.25 to 12.5 mg.

At this level, you will still receive significant testosterone suppression, but the risks associated with the medication are lower.

Today's #DailyTransJoy is very trans indeed. Did my 6 month T voice recording (am recording myself regularly to track the changes T is bringing on) today and then listened back to previous recordings, including pre-T and there's such a huge difference. Day before yesterday a trans friend complimented me on my voice, and today my ex mother in law asked if I was sick because there's so much raspiness in my voice right now. I'm squealing. Masculinely. #HRT #TransJoy

I hate the way #HRT for minors is talked about in the US.

“They can wait until they are adults to make that choice. What if they regret it?”

Oh really? So you’re prepared to pay the hundreds of thousands (for some trans fems) it’s going to cost to undo an unwanted puberty? You are making this choice for them so it sounds to me like you should be responsible for the damages.

Ok, another #HRT question, maybe for people who know a bit more about the homebrew process: Assuming the provider is trustworthy, could there be any reason why a vial would contain no or way too low Estradiol? I guess they could've straight up forgotten to put the powder in, but that seems exceedingly unlikely. Could have something happened to the Estradiol in the vial that caused it to degrade in some way? I always stored it away from light at room temperature.

I was thinking earlier about a #transjoy moments that I don’t think I’ve seen others discuss. Before #HRT I lacked the ability to reframe bad things.

Over the weekend my refrigerator died. How I react to vs how my deadname would have are night and day different.

I have been on female hormones for five years. I have had no regrets. My body took to the hormonal change like a duck to water or as my endocrinologist said: “It’s as if your body had been waiting for them.”

#LGBTQ #Transgender #HRT #MentalHealth

So anyways, there's positive news regarding my medical transition. I probably will be able to get access to hrt this year. Privately, it costs me dearly, but I'm willing to make that financial sacrifice.

But there's suddenly, and finally some hope.

#hrt #trans #transmasc #nonbinary #enby

Oh, (NTCT Norway),
so you think that I am not capable of making decisions about my life and body based on informed consent, as an autistic adult?

What about having children? Should I be allowed to have those? An arguably more impactful choice, since it impacts more than me, and is more irreversible than gender affirming healthcare.

If you say "no", your thinking is dangerously fascist. If you say "yes", you're a hypocrite who makes no sense.

Folks on #HRT, I have a revelation.
You have been lied to when you were told you were using hormones. By definition, hormones are produced by your body. When this signal molecules are produced by another member of your species, then we call them pheromones. It really doesn't matter if they're the exact same molecules.
I think it's pretty cool to think that you're using pheromones.

- The woman did not appear in today's oral argument. Her attorney noted that years of #HRT practically made her infertile, that surgery is not required to live as a woman, that the surgery comes with physical pain, possible complications, and economic burdens. (In Japan, many trans women go to Thailand to receive gender-confirming surgery; they are not covered by insurance.)

Just got my latest bloodwork results and am just incredibly frustrated >.< After injecting 4 mg of Estradiol Enanthate into my thigh muscles once a week for a month, my estradiol levels come down to...
35 pg/ml, aka perfectly average cis male levels. Not even slightly elevated. When, according to the calculator over at, it should hover around the 250 pg/ml mark.

Today is the day! I finally get to start my #hrt ! #trans #lgbtq

So, a yearish in, one odd thing I was _not_ expecting from estrogen, but am actually really enjoying: my body odor??

Pre-HRT, despite my T levels being high even for a cis dude, I just kinda...didn't really sweat much, didn't really have noticeable BO, didn't need to use deodorant.

But now it seems like I'm actually sweating _more_ on E, and my body odor has noticeably shifted in a way that I really like! Liking it is not the surprising part - I've generally enjoyed partners' BO - but I hadn't thought about the possibility of _my_ BO becoming more noticeable and...nicer?

Anyway, this brought to you by sweating during some light house cleaning this morning and smiling about it, curious if any other folks have similar experiences! #trans #transfem #hrt

I've been more active on Instagram lately, but wanted to post a few updates:

1. I've been on #hrt for a little over six months and I've never been happier. The changes are amazing, inside and out.

2. The best part of coming out is finding your people. My house has increasingly become a safe space, with old and new friends popping up out of nowhere to talk about their journeys.

3. I still love #blacktights.

A transwoman revels in the reality of her hips. She is wearing black tights and a little green skirt that doesn't cover up nearly as much as it should.
It's me. My lips are red, my eyes are brown. I am smiling faintly, which does not communicate the euphoria that is burning bright inside me right now. I am the sunshine I have always looked for.

My forties are the fucking best.
These are my legs; there are many like them, but mine are clad in black tights. At this moment, I am curled up on the couch after a night of dancing, unable to comprehend how much I love my life, and the queerness of the city I live in.

Hi, Masto! ‘Member me? 👉👈🥺

I’ve got a hormone levels question. I’m on injectable E (weekly subQ) and my mid-week level is 572 pg/mL. (Endo insists on testing midweek 🤷‍♀️)

Endo says this is too high/risky, wants to lower dose. I say “bah! I feel great and like what’s happening!” I had upped my dose slightly to stop feeling like unaliving myself and it worked.

Can anyone back me up? @Impossible_PhD @siege perhaps?

Thanks in advance! 💖

My blood was taken in a 48 hour trough though, on a low dose, so im not surprised.

I've had my dosage tripled and I'm optimistic, looking forward to my body absorbing the gel through my skin and expelling it via my tearducts.

Bit of a trickier injection today.

I first Injected 0.15 mL (6 mg) of estradiol enanthate into the vastus lateralis muscle in my left thigh, but some of the ester pushed itself out after I removed the needle.

To be safe, I did a further injection of 0.5 mL (2 mg) nearby.

Guess I can't always get a straight-forward injection, but it's still better for me than patches :TransFemHeart:

Hey #trans peeps, I have a theory about our community in the Fedi. It seems to me that most of us are either what I call "Pandemic Boys and Girls" who started their transition during lockdown, or those of us who seem to be a few months in. I'm in that second group. It's like the pandemic started us off, but we didn't quite get there for some reason until recently. So let's do a little poll.

How long have you been on #HRT?

In an ideal world, all trans folks wanting HRT would be prescribed the safest & most-suitable meds for their needs:

• within a reasonable timeframe
• via informed consent
• via a national healthcare system or otherwise at an affordable cost

... by a qualified professional who fully understands trans HRT.

However, for most folks, these factors will not all occur together, if at all 😞

NHS England sets a very restrictive estradiol level target range for trans fem patients.

This arbitrary range is 400 to 600 pmol/L (~109 to ~163 pg/mL) 🤨

This restrictive range is below the level required for monotherapy, so will require a blocker for anyone with testosterone-producing gonads 😞

It is ALWAYS valid to manipulate your estradiol dose before a test, so it looks like your level is within this range.

#trans #transgender #TransFem #TransWoman #HRT #NHS

I think I need to drop Spiro and switch to mono-therapy until I start Progesterone.

Obviously Spiro kinda sucks because you have to pee all the time and it can make you light-headed, but I think it might be seriously impacting my mental health and cognitive function too. I know I like to joke around and be like "haha no thought head empty" but the brain fog has been pretty severe these last few months, I also wonder if it's not the reason I've been feeling on average more depressed and forgetful as well.

I accepted Spiro as a necessary evil to nuke my T in the early months, but it was always my intention to drop it at some point and I think that point is now. So now I'm gonna do the thing where I elicit medical advice from strangers!

Can anyone speak to how effective mono-therapy is with sublingual Estradiol? Should I expect the need to switch to injections? Me and needles are not friends, but if it's necessary for mono to be effective I'll find a way to manage.

Hi friends! My doc just bumped me up to 200mg spiro / day, which is just two of the 100mg tablets. I'm curious if its better to take them both together or split them between morning / night. Is there any difference in effect?

Update: Thanks for all the responses! This is what I've gathered:

  • Spread it out as much as possible
  • Take with food
  • Ask your doctor to be sure

I suppose it’s well past time for me to make an #introduction post!

My name is Velux, & it’s probably not pronounced how you think. You can call me Vel for short too!

I’ve been in the #FurryFandom since summer 2004, & can feel my hollow bones crumbling as I say that =P

I am a golden eagle gryphon with a red fox bottom half instead of feline - a mix that I call a gryphox!

In 2014, I began dating @inari, who is incredibly patient & understanding of my bullshit, & continues to be my amazing partner to this day 💙

I began on this journey in the fandom insisting I was a straight male human just having a little escapism fun… And have since found that I am none of that at all.

It took a relatively short time to show me that I am #pansexual, & I first started questioning my gender around 2016, which led to me realizing that I am #trans #nonbinary just days before 2019 ended. I took the careful route & began #HRT in October 2021. In mid to late 2022, I began to realize that some of the feelings I’ve had most of my life, & my current feelings even more blatantly, fit as #therian/ #otherkin. This was further confirmed when I experienced an awakening in February.

My #fursuit was made by, & fursuit performance, thanks to my experience as a D-I college mascot, is the only directly furry skill I have to offer back to the fandom.

I work professionally in live & motion #broadcast #graphics. I love #birds & #birdwatching, & hope to grow with bird photography. I’ve unleashed the inner #pinball fiend I was as a kid & have become a bit of a fan all over again as an adult. I am learning & growing in the craft of #chainmaille jewelry, & hope to launch a side shop soon to keep me busy with #maille projects. I am very much a #Trekkie, with very few days that go by without watching an episode.

I’ve grown a lot throughout the years, and am excited to see where it takes me next!
