Do any MTF's have experience taking testosterone?

0 like 0 dislike
I was wondering if anyone has any experience taking a low dose of testosterone after surgery at the same time as taking estrogen?

I know of a transwoman friend (post op) who takes an Andriol Testocap capsule daily or else she has no drive / will to do anything! I'm post op too and don't need it but please be sure to have your bloods done as this is always a risky area.

Have there been any downsides, or undesirable effects? Why is this a risky area?

No undesirable effects noticed. Hormones of any variety have incredibly powerful effects on mind and body, I have known one woman who got DVTs after her first progesterone shot and another lady (RIP you will be remembered) who died from a brain clot / haemorrhage from self over prescription. Please get your levels checked as all bodies are different. Even people same weight / height / age etc need different levels.

Hi. We passed your question on to a GP in our networks and they replied:

"Sorry, I don't know the answer to that question. With one exception - I know that some MTFs (postop) are using testosterone cream to enhance clitoral sensitivity."

We know that's not much, but we hope that helps.

This post replaces two answers recently written in response to this question. These answers breached our Q&A site terms of use by encouraging violation of the law. 

To the person who wrote these answers: feel free to post a new answer that doesn't breach our site terms of use. However, please also keep in mind that:

  • the question is from someone who is asking about taking a low dose of testosterone (at the same time as taking estrogen) after surgery
  • the asker isn't enquiring about how to obtain testosterone but seems more interested in the experience/effects of being on a low testosterone dose post-surgery.

To Admin

I do apology but I am not sorry for what I had posted.

First, The person did not mention what type of surgery was done.

Second is for the educational/expence saving purpose. So I posted 2 ways of getting testostrone (but the Admin deleted.That is Okay..I have nothing to lose.)Cos some  people love to ask  like a a a a cowboys and Indians game or improvisational questions. That is..

But..You are right.

I got the point (what you meant)

 

Bye

Bye

Have a nice day
