Tuesday November 29, 2016 - Realization about HRT

About a week ago, I wrote a post about whether my HRT meds might be fake. I said it because after switching pharmacies, I did not feel the same while taking the meds from the new pharmacy. My friends out there talked me "off the ledge" (LOL) and they were right. I also posted a question on Reddit and received similar comments.

Two days after that post, all of my feeling came back. I was in a better place mentally and my breasts were bouncy and in the way. Every time I moved, I felt them. Even standing up.

Today, my body is quiet again. I must have entered a new more mature phase.

During the first 5 months, my body changed quickly and stayed energized. I felt my skin become smooth and my figure change.

Now I have entered a more long-term growth phase, in which that body energy is intermittent. I can tell, I am still changing but its slower. I am going to miss that everyday excitement. But I am OK with the long-term and slow changes.

Friday, I have my six month checkup with my Doctor. I am looking forward to talking to him about my changes.

I am also trying to schedule a lunch with the young college age Transwoman, I met at the mall this spring. We have been messaging each other on Facebook and I suggested we have a girls time out. I directed her to my Doctor and she just started HRT about 2 months ago. So we want to get together and compare notes.

It can be like a big sister, well maybe mother/daughter or grandmather/daughter (Darn!) meal. But if we can get our schedules together, it will be fun.


  1. I'm trying to remember something I read about breast growth. Breast growth is not linear but multi-directional. We're growing in depth(forward projection), width and height of the breast or, it could be said, greater circumference. So at first, it's easy for the breast to double in size fairly quickly. However for the breast to double in size, it has to add in essence four times the current mass so while it seems growth slows down it hasn't. Let's say your forward projection of your breast is 1.1". Calculate the volume of a sphere with a radius of 1.1" and divide in half. Then calculate the volume of a sphere with a radius of 2", divide in half and compare the two numbers. It's not completely accurate but close enough to give you an idea of how much more mass is required to double in size.
