these stuff you are taking, isnt it dangerous? My wife is constantly nagging me for a breast enlargement surgery but I know that isnt 100% safe too. Can she use this instead?
To be honest, I'm mostly taking this to feminize my body in aspects of feminine facial features, mentality and broadening of the hips. I'm 19 years old and i'm kind of feminine as a natural boy , but i need a little boost.:-)

<quoted text>That would depend on what exactly you are looking for. But I would not order anything over the net, unless you absolutely have to. I would suggest that you contact a physician that specialize in trans healthcare. Hormones are not a game. They have to be monitored yearly by a physician. And in the begining, they monitor you twice a year.
That being said, I have known girls who used drugs similar to the one you described. Are you currently on a HRT regimine?
Hi, there! I have a huge question for you that really requires your assistance& proper advice. Basically, I've fully deliberated a month a go to begin transitioning. I went to a local GNC store in my hometown to purchase something that would reduce the flow of my natural hormone ( TESTERONE) in my body. The product is called GNC progesterone cream and i've been using it since the 3rd of Sept, 2010 . The directions instructed me to apply this creme for 21 days and discontinue using for 3 days. Sad to say, there were no visible progression ...so nothing has really changed. I've applied it in the back of my two ears, in the center of my hand where the elbow is attached underneath, and underneath my leg where the knee is attached above. Am i suppose to see reults using a testerone blocker or should i discontiue using it? Please help!

Hmmm... but doctors don't prescribe all of these do they? I am only getting Spiro, Estriadiol, and Medroxyprogesterone... should I be taking something else as an additional supplement?
You don't say how old you are. In my experience no one over 35-40 shopuld be taking hormones in pill form. Actually, no one should be taking hormones in pill form! Injectibles are fine for under 40, but you should have a "Timed release" for older than 40. I never paid too much atention to what others said about this until I had my stroke in my late fifties. Now I use cream and have used patches. I apply the cream twice a day. As a stroke victim, Both myself and my Dr (She's TS herself) are being very cautious about this. I go to get a blood test monthly ( PT INR ) The hormone cream must be made up specially by a COMPOUNDING PHARMACIST. They're not too common today. the cost is about $50 dollars a month. You can't just walk in a buy this Rx over the counter.

Anything sold over the counter is probably too weak to do much. You need at least 100 mgs of Spironalactone daily (50 in the AM, 50 at night) to do much. Same with botanicals (Phyto-Estrogen from plants) Don't waste your time and money!

Eboni, I don't know how you could miss these two but there's Dr Christine McGinn in New hope, Pa and Dr Lisa O'connor, in Stirling, NJ. Dr McGinn operates the Papillon center and is a surgeon and trained with Dr Bowers. Dr O'Connor is not a surgeon, but handles every aspect of your transition except surgery.
Also, for FFS. try Dr John Taylor in Long Branch NJ, Prices are right and his work is good.

<quoted text>How are you doing today?

Depending on the SRS surgeon, you will need 1-2 years of Hormones. Dr. Bowers only ask for 1 year. If i'm wrong, i'm sure one of the girls will correct me, but i'm pretty sure, that Dr. Bowers only ask for one year. She is the only trans woman surgeon in the world. All the others are men or women. But remember to see your doctor before taking HRT. Do not go to the streets.
If there are any more questions that you have before, or during your transition, just ask. Also enjoy your transition, becuase no two are the same..........cool, now i am going to have another sister.

Spiro is a third tiered (maybe fourth) Blood pressure medicine that will stop your male hormone production. It can be aquired anywhere (AFAIK) with an Rx (prescription) Phyto-Estrogens are estogens produced by plants. They are not effective for us. I believe Dr McGinn has an office in Key West, Fla also.

I notice that most are taking prescription forms of different hormones.Yes,they work;but they also work FAST.It is much better to use slower acting forms to produce MtF.Herbal products are generally SAFER than the presciption products;and the effects do occur but at a gradual rate;allowing the body time to respond.I ONLY use "Herbal" products for about 1yr;with very pleasing results.If you are interested in the products I use;or would like to CHAT;let me know?

<quoted text>Well allow me to say that everyone's results will vary. Even in genetic women, they do not all grow and mature at the same time.
That being said, i would reframe from using any type of creams. Don't ask me why......i quess i'm just a scaredy cat.
However, i will talk about the effects of the hormones. This too is determined upon many factors.
You must take your age into account, becuase this will have a result on how fast and noticable your results will be. Hormones work best in younger people around 14-17 years of age. But if you start late in life, they have about 25% of their effective usage. The average age for transitioners are 40.
Also you have to consider that at a certian age, you may not be able to grow breats. This is usualy among those who are senior citizens who wish to transition.
However, all this being said, the hormones have tremendous effects on the male body. I have been taking Estradiol for 3 years come june, and i can truly say that i love it.
Are you thinking of transitioning?.........if so, if you have any questions, i'm here to help.
im 18 and have decided to become a woman, however most of my friends who take hormones do it the illegal way taking 4 hormomne shots every month... is it safe to order hormone shots from online or should i go to the doctors? if soo what is the process of getting hormones from the doctor, do you have to go through therapy?? please feel free to email me georgeavasquez@yahoo.com

All it took for me was spironoclatone, and estradiol. That did the trick. I am not going to give you my dosages, becuase the dose varies from person to person. Your doctor will have to prescribe for you what is best for your body. But I am satisfied with the results.
I hear many people claiming to go to herbs, but that is not exactly my cup of tea. I doubt the results, and nobody has come forward to any transgender conventions, taking their shirts off and saying, "LOOK AT WHAT HERBS DID FOR ME". Until then, I'm cool with my synthetic estrogens lol.
Synthetics work faster than herbs;but they are also less safe.Herbs do work!Not all want complete feminization.Herbal estrogen will produce:'B' cup,which is all you need;lighter,softer,less blemished skin;renewed hair color;a 'radiant'expression.Adding female traits to the male traits produces only positive results.

I am a 33 year old transgender woman that has been taking 100 mg of spiro for about a year and i love it because it lessens my body hair. But as of a few months, my doctor put me on premarin 0.3 and i haven't seen or felt any results from that. Then about a month ago, she upped my dosage to 0.45 and still haven't seen or felt any results. I've heard that taking B-12 and some other type of vitamins also helps further along your transition. Is that even true? I am really trying to be patient, but it is also fustrating.

Your Dr may be playing it safe with you. Do you have high blood pressure. I'd get one of those cuffs with the meter and learn how to use it. Watch out for High BP. I've had a stroke and you don't want that! The next time you you have any bloodwork done, ask for a copy of the results and keep it in a file. See if it says PT INR. This test tells about your clotting factor and whether or not you're going to have a stroke or not. Do Not ignore this!
100 Mgs of spiro (50 in the AM, and 50 in the PM)can be a little dangerous too. Drink a lot of water with it. It's a "Potassium Sparing" drug and you may feel your legs cramping up in bed at night. Eat very little tomatoes and bananas. I don 't like Premarin! I prefer creams or patches. With orals, there is a "First pass" through the liver. With creams and patches there is no first pass, the hormone goes directly into your blood stream. molre bang for your buck and lass liver damage! Good luck!

Thank you for that info. I was also told by another tg that it doesn't matter if you take your hormones with even juice, but i will start taking them with more water. My doctor also told be about bananas and grapes that i can have to eat, but not a lot, which i try to stay away from here and there. I don't eat certain fruits. It's funny that you mentioned cramps because i had one earlier this morning in my right calf out of nowhere. I try to eat healthy whihc also isn't easy. I used to eat a lot of microwaveable food for the simple fact that it's quick and easy and i don't like to cook all the time like i used to, but now i don't have a microwave in my apartment i moved into 2 months ago, which is probably good to a point...lol. I'm getting off topic, lol. I also bought some Metamucil pills a few months ago and haven't been taking them like i need to, which i also heard that they're supposed to work really good. I really can't wait to actually start seeing and feeling a change in my body with my transition, but like i said, it's fustrating. Thanks again for your info. I really appreciate it.

Mine was in 2003. I suffered blockage around the speech center of my brain. That is the only lingering symptom I have, It was four days before was diagnosed. I woke up one morning and felt pretty weird. I had taken a new pain killer the night before (for my back) and I thought it was some kind of lingering after effect.
I was in my late fifties and I was taking .125 premarin orally. Afterwards, I switched to patches. Later I was seeing Dr Lisa O'Connor and she Rxed a little stronger patch. Then I switched to Dr Christine McGinn and she Rxed a dosage that had to be made up at a compounding pharmacist. I am happy with the results. She also gave me a regimen of 1/2 the dose in the AM and 1/2 at night. This prevents surges. I also have monthly blood work done (PT INR) to monitor the Coumadin I take daily due to the stroke.

HI Terry.Mine was 11/2007.Blockage of left caudate nucleus region[lacuna stroke].I was lucky;no significant lasting adverse effects.I don't blame HRT.I blame 38yrs working in Mfg.I was taking Aggrenox for the longest time;but,I changed to two aspirins daily.The former had too many side effects.I like the transdermal route also;but,I don't discount the need for pill form.Terry,to be honest,it really doesn't concern me that much;as long as I can be female and enter the afterlife as female.****Steph.

You can, but there are many reasons why you shouldn't. They seem to be more expensive. Alot of times they come from questionable countries/sources. They could be outdated or might not even contain the chemicals you are after. What if you start taking them and after 6 months on them, your next shipment gets lost in the mail? You don't want to go through that, even one day of missing mine and I feel like I'm ready to be commited!

No, it is best to do this the right way, you will need the accompanying bloodwork from a doctor to see if they are even working well, anyway! Besides, nothing compares to the euphoria one feels walking out of a doctor's office with those freshly written scripts for the first time, riding that high (especially if you've waited your whole life for that day)!
