HRT: Week 15

Hi friends!

It’s Tuesday and, as you’ve come to expect, here’s my weekly hormone replacement therapy update.

This week, it’s less about outward-facing physical changes and more about hormone levels. Last week, I alluded to my doctor having blood work done to check my hormone levels, to see if my Estradiol dosage was going up.

Well, those results came back last night. My doctor informed me that my testosterone levels were very low (11, to be exact) and my estrogen levels were high. So, no need to up my estrogen dosage.

Right now, there isn’t a huge need to up my dosage anyway, even if I physically needed it. Changes are happening more quickly than I anticipated, so I need to stay on my steady pace and not let my body get ahead of me.

Until next time, friends!
