Today marks the third week of being on Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). I do feel much better since I first started taking estrogen. I’m not as depressed as I was just four or five weeks ago. Yet, the social anxiety is still there, especially in large social situations. I have been opening up in therapy these past few weeks like I have never done before.

There are some physical differences for me as well. My nipples are now more sensitive then they have ever been. I can feel my shirt rubbing them when I move which causes them to get erect. I have been wearing a sports bra to keep a barrier between my nipples and my shirt. My facial hair is still growing but very slowly and my body hair is getting softer and finer. I’m no where near to actually looking like a female.

  • That’s great you’ve started to feel better and are less depressed. Good news!

    I’m glad you’re sharing your story, because I am sure other people who are transitioning are are experiencing similar things, or will experience them.
