Friday March 31, 2017 - Doctor's appointment yesterday

Yesterday, I finally got in to see my doctor. We had a good talk and I told him about the positive effects of the hormones and that I like where I am.

My hormone levels were in the normal female range, based on my December 2016 blood readings. My doctor signed me up for a new free service that will allow me to monitor my blood readings online. So I will know my March 2017 blood results next week.

This is good because I changed my regime about a month ago and I would like to see how it affected my results. I did tell my doctor of the change and he recommended that I not change.

We had an honest talk about sex and he discussed a new drug he is recommending. He had recommended Cialis during my last visit. However, like Viagra, its is very expensive.

The active ingredient in Viagra is now in a generic form. While Viagra or Cialis is about $10 per pill,  Sildenafil is about $0.50 per pill. So he gave me a prescription.

Over the past week, I have been having a difficult time sleeping. This morning I woke up, not feeling right. I think the change in my hormone regime is having an slow but steady impact. I have decided to go back to my original regime and add the new prescription.

I feel like I am in "no-woman's land" as I can not feel my femininity nor my masculinity. I want to go back to being able to cry more and feel my surroundings. I feel that male wall coming back.

Based on what I have been reading over the years in my HRT yahoo group, I though that after I reached female levels, my estradiol would be enough to keep me at those levels. So I reduced my Spirolactone (200 mg to 100 mg) and Finasteride (5 mg to 0). It has taken awhile, but I can feel a change and my lack of sleeping may also be a result.

Even though, I do not feel the need to dress much, that inner femininity is very important to me and now it not as strong it was. I want it, no I need it to be strong again.

Once I got a taste of Susan, I can not nor will not go back. It's who I am and have always been.
