Two weeks ago, I tested positive for Covid-19. Fortunately, it has not been too severe, I didn’t need to go to the hospital, but it has taken me out of commission for the past 2 weeks.

This new hormone regimen is not working out
About 2 months ago, my doctor changed up my hormone regimen. My levels at the time were too high, so she switched me from weekly estrogen injections to biweekly.

Hormone issues and another round of medication changes
Last week, I had an appointment with my hormone provider. At my last appointment, 4 months ago, I had gotten pretty good results.

This did not last long,Continue reading “Hormone issues and another round of medication changes”

A year into my transition, my hormone levels are worse than when I started
I had my first blood test since switching to injections last week and the results are absolutely terrible. After a year of hormone replacement therapy, my levels are back to where they were prior to my transition.
Issues with the pharmacy, again
Early in my transition, I had a lot of problems getting my hormones from my pharmacy. Prescriptions would disappear, estrogen would be “out of supply” for weeks, and medication would need to be “confirmed” every time I got a refill. Now, I am having trouble again.
HRT appointment nerves
I have an HRT appointment in a week and I am pretty nervous. I have had minor gripes with the clinic before, but nothing serious. Typically, I just try to get in and out as quickly as possible with my prescription. Unfortunately, that isn’t an option this time around. I have to have a seriousContinue reading “HRT appointment nerves”
The unresponsiveness of transgender healthcare
I am frustrated and have been for the last couple of weeks. The source of this frustration is my most recent lab results and my hormone replacement therapy (HRT) clinic’s response to them. At my last appointment, I discussed possibly changing my HRT regiment if my HRT levels were not at the proper ranges. MyContinue reading “The unresponsiveness of transgender healthcare”
