So people may or may not remember my previous entry about "just grow a pair?" Well progress happens. No boob shots sorry. I am too mature for that, moving away from gratuitous pics of myself.
Well the DHEA was having a steroid effect, crippling insomnia, and spiking my blood pressure, so I had to get off it. Three days later, I began to experience severe dysphoria and resumed at a lower dose.
Some internet research led me to feminizing hormone transdermal creams which are available over the counter within the United States. Not only did I sleep like a baby, but when I woke up the dysphoria was completely gone. I believe I switched in late February.
Anyway my transition has been a miracle for me. I took vacation and discovered CBD hemp oil which is sold freely in Arkansas, and slowly trickling into Louisiana despite being scheduled here.
It helps with anxiety and dysphoria, help me to relax and be just myself.
So I do two pumps of Biolabs Biestrogen 2.5 80/20 Estriol/Estradiol. That is 1mg estradiol and 4mg estriol nightly application. 20mg Progesterone cream as well. And about .25mL of pure Hemp extract oil morning and night. Good stuff.
Progesterone aids breast development and boosts labido. In males it converts to testosterone so it may hinder feminization slightly. As a nonbinary transwoman that's okay with me. I like having a penis and I like being feminine. Crazy isn't it?
So far I have lost 50 pounds and my body is very slowly developing breasts and a butt, and my abdomen is hourglassing herself. I have progressed enough to occasionally pass as female with just lipstick and clothing accessories. Nice!
I am currently waiting on the petition from the courthouse to make my name change official. And I'm going to ask the doctor to run a full hormone panel next time I see him. As well I am seeing my therapist once again after a two year hiatus, and she has affirmed me!
Who knows what I will look like in a year? Follow me @alita.jean.metamorphosis on Instagram for more updates on my progress. Also kozmic
_stardust for more of my art, some of which I have neglected posting on DA because life happens.
