HRT: Week 4

Wow, it’s been a month already?!? Time flies when your emotions are all over the place.

Basically.

Joking aside, though, the major changes I’ve seen are:

  • Mood Swings: Oh, they are starting. So far, I haven’t gone from zero-to-cryfest yet, but I am definitely feeling less and less in-control of my feelings.
  • Increased Appetite: I am ready to eat anything and everything in sight. Thankfully my low-carb eating habits help keep that somewhat at bay, but I’m finding it harder to stay away from my local Chipotle…or WingStop…or Starbucks…or [insert restaurant here].

As an aside, I’ve noticed that I have seen some more muscle definition in my lower body (thighs specifically), but I think the weeks’ worth of elliptical & stair master time in the gym have helped there.

My doctor is keeping on the same dosage I started out with for now, and I’m to have a follow-up in the next month to look at my hormone levels & check for any irregularities & if then is a good time to start raising my dosages.

Cheers!
