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. 😛
