Just know that you are going to get it very soon into the future! Thats what I did when I had to wait over 8 months. And When I got it it made it super special.
I think it is, I felt like that and I was sooo scared but I told myself “this is something that is just happening to your body, so deal with it” and that helped and I did it and I was happy!
Have you seen a therapist about this before? I would really recommend it. They might be able to help with your depression and other issues as well as being trans and accepting it you know?
You can bind with a loose binder or a sports bra, honestly, people at the gym are so into what they are doing and their own bodies - no one is going to look at you and question you, you know?
- Your fat will redistribute to a more ‘female’ shape
- Face will begin to re-feminize
- Period will come back
- Hair will stop growing so quickly
- Hair on head will stop falling out as much
- Skin will begin to soften again
- Pee smell will change back
thats all I can think of at the moment! These are the things that happened to me when I went off T!
There is no ‘better’ per say - I think its all on individual likes.
Some people don’t mind injections once a week (or every 10 days, or every 2 weeks, or every month or even every 3 months! - there are so many diff ways to do it and diff kinds of injectable T!). Some people don’t want needles and prefer the gel. You can put the gel on in the morning or at night (its suggested to take it at night because apparently ‘mens’ T levels are the highest in the morning. I don’t believe it matters at all. I was injecting every night at like 11pm for over 3 years and I have a beard …. haha) SO you just have to shower (or wash the area with hot water and soup) and gel it up!
Some people dont like that you cant touch someone for 2 hours but thats it, you can put a tshirt on 5-10 mins after you put the gel on your arm or tummy and there you go! hah
ORRR You can just self-inject. You can do IM (intermuscular) injections (longer needles) OR subcutaneous (under the skin - in the fat like your tummy or butt lol - also way smaller needle).
Its really about a preference in exposer - the amount of T that will enter your body will equate to the same if administered properly :)
I’m getting used to putting it on every morning but I think im going to switch over to nights.. I dont like showering every morning lol I like doing that at night ~~~
So far I dont feel anything different than when I was on injections, but I shall post about it if i do!
