Starting Testosterone

Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
This is a community for FTMs starting testosterone hormone replacement therapy as part of their transition. This community is meant to be a forum to share the first few months of experiences, and to just vent about any difficulties or joys arising from the new experience of hormone therapy, but people further along in transition are of course welcome to continue to post questions and/or concerns they have with T. Links to transition journals/websites and T updates are appreciated and welcomed.

A couple other things:
1) If you join, please post an introduction. If you want to be included in our list of members (below), and have started T within the last year, please include your start date, current dose, type of testosterone, and age -- and say that you want to be included.

2) Before posting a question, see if your question has been addressed before in the:
- tags
- memories (although most of the entries are from about 3 years ago)
- tags of the ftm community

This is also a good resource on the effects of Testosterone.

3) In order to keep the community more tidy looking, please put all pictures behind a lj-cut
