Changes After Two Weeks Of Hormone Therapy

I’m two weeks into hormone treatment for my MtF gender transition, and I just noticed my first unmistakable change today. This got me so excited I had to write a blog post about it! (It was that or write a Facebook post, but nowadays I’m making an effort to keep my writing here).

(Warning for this post: intimate descriptions of bodily functions).

Before today, I noticed changes but they were rather too subtle to be sure. For instance, quite quickly I thought I noticed a feeling of being a bit more… mellow is the best word for it. Relaxed, comfortable, unstressed.

Just a little bit more. I thought I was imagining it until my roommate made a similar observation from the outside looking in.

Apart from that, it seems like I need to masturbate less – I used to do it several times a day; now I do it pretty much just once. Also, I get the idea I could skip a day without becoming a horny sex monster the day after.

Not sure but I think so.

The one change that has been impossible to deny, though, was this one, which I discovered today:

I smell less – and different.

It’s been very hot today and yesterday and I’ve been sweating. Normally that would make me stink unless I used deodorant. Now it hasn’t. The change is really clear.

And what smell I do have, is different: definitely more feminine somehow; lighter, almost a little floral.

At one point today a weird feeling came over me because the smell reminded me of my sister. Everyone has a unique scent and my new smell is not totally unlike hers. I guess I’ll get used to it though.

My partner and roommate have enjoyed a day of me sniffing my armpits frequently and enthusing about the smell. For some reason, they weren’t as excited as I was. 😛

Because it’s kind of relevant, I’ll leave you with a comic from What’s Normal Anyway:

    I, too, have been on estrogen for two weeks and felt more relaxed, and not really interested in masturbating or any body touching.I also found that my nipples started tingling and more sensitive to cold and are erect more often. My hair is beginning to grow a little faster. As I enter third week, I await more welcomed changes.
