    in regards to HRT scripts...



    What’s weird is that a “transsexual” male, once approved psychologically can take feminizing drugs to make him into a woman. But a man can’t take drugs to make him more of a man! What an ass backward world we live in.





    Never thought of it that way

    Yeah, that's an interesting way of viewing things. HRT done intelligently can be quite safe, maybe when I'll be 225-250 lbs (@ 6'5") I'll give it a try.

    That is actually a good point. How come it's acceptable to want to be something other than what you were born with in some cases but not in others?

    Yep. Basically, it's for people with low test levels to get it to "normal" levels (but the definition of "normal" varies greatly since the numbers are in such a big range). People who want to have a sex change certainly aren't getting a "normal" level for their sex and the idea is that since they can do it, why is it illegal for someone to get some legally if they want to "help" their gains. I think it's a valid point and maybe HRT will be a valid cure for body dismorphia :bowdown:

    I do know a couple people on HRT. Dosage perscribed will depend on alot of things.

    One of my buddies total test is at like 1800 ng/dl with one shot of cyp a week and a transdermal test cream. Bastards insurance covers 95% if that too.

    It's test + progestins, from what I know :o so it's going to suck. Take it from female experience: you don't want any more damn progesterone than you already have.
