I’ve just come out of a 3 mth check-up with my Physician. She is delighted with my progress and happy to see that my body has responded so well.
My Testosterone levels have dropped right off to be undetectable at < 0.1 ng/mL which is less than the average female T level (normally below 0.2 ng/mL)
This would explain why my sex drive is non existent! Which to be perfectly honest is fine with me. Having male plumbing with a mind of its own just ads to my dysphoria … so yeah … I don’t mind at all the way things are currently at.
She told me that if I get to the point where I want to regain some level of sex drive then she can add back in a micro-dose of testosterone to bring it back to average female levels.
I find it so amazing that 1/4 of a tiny white pill can completely obliterate the effects of testosterone in the body, and now realise how tenuously masculinity hangs on a thread. Remove T and Men … you are only 2-3 months away from a very, VERY different human experience.
As far as my Oestrogen (Estradiol) levels go as at the time of my last blood test I was only at 225 pg/mL which is on the low side. The average for females is around 300-370. This result for me could possibly be due to the fact that the last sample was taken only one week after stepping up to a full dosage, and we are going to test again in February to see where I’m at then. Having said that, my Physician isn’t so worried as (obviously) my body is responding well to the new hormones and progressing nicely with the feminising process.
So there ya go!
