Twenty-Four Months on T
May 15, 2005
At two years on T, I still cannot grow anything worth mentioning on my face. I have a healthy amount of hair on my neck/chin area, but it's certainly not something I can grow or shape or anything. My moustache area seemed to just stop increasing in hairs that grow in, but I'm finally beginning to see some sign of sideburns...growing from the bottom up. Who does that?
I obviously have more facial hair now than I did pre-T or at one year. I need to shave at least twice per week, although if I am trying to keep a "professional" look, I have to do it at least three times per week. At the end of a shave day I can definitely feel a 5 o'clock shadow, especially on my neck.
The hair around my nipples has suddenly decided to crop up. I have a nice little patch of dark hair on my chest finally that joins to my (extremely) happy trail. I've noticed the hair on my hand is a bit darker than a year or two ago as well as the mid-digital hair on my toes. Ew. The unibrow is still growing in nicely, but my friends have convinced me to wax it. The butt hair stays, that's where I draw the line.
Compared to Pre-T and even one year on T, my legs and butt have completely filled in, all the way to the top. I was always convinced that I wouldn't be one of those guys with nipple hair, but alas, I am.
As usual, my work-out regime has failed miserably, or rather I have failed miserably at it. For the past 6-9 months I've been a steady weight of about 140. I would like to decrease the amount of fat I have and increase the amount of muscle, but then again, who wouldn't? I'm still slightly discouraged by the location of my fat, specificially in the hips, but I guess I'm not too disgruntled about it to really get into the gym.
Despite this minor discouragment, I have seen an overall change from pre-T and from one year on T. T-shirts that I used to buy Old Navy little boy's department no longer fit my shoulders. I definitely have more of a belly that is much more difficult to get rid of.
No major changes in muscle development, due to my consistent lack of going to the gym. However, in relation to pre-T and one year on T, I am definitely stronger. I find myself lifting and carrying things that many other people (who I would have guessed would be stronger than me) have difficulty with. I have more muscle definition (believe it or not!) in my arms and my legs. Now, if only I could see those abs...
I believe my acne is finally under control, or at least I know what I need to do to keep it under control. My back, chest, and arms could use a little scar reduction, but my face is usually free of acne besides a couple here and there. And that is a grand improvement from a year ago! I have been on 100mg Minocycline twice per day, using Brevoxyl-8 Creamy Wash in the shower, and Retin-A Micro 0.04% for my face. I also have Generic Tretinoin Cream 0.05% for my back, chest, and arms, but I'm not as good about putting that on.
Compared to Pre-T, my skin and hair are a lot more greasy. As I mentioned before, compared to one year on T, my acne is much better, I think due to the prescriptions I am on. When I lag in taking/using them, I break out again.
I think, to my greater dismay, my voice may finally be done changing. I am going to continue to record it as long as I update this website, because hey, why not?
Obviously my voice has changed a lot in relation to pre-t and even one year on T. Even after I speak, I pass about 90-95% of the time in person. On the phone I pass probably 75% of the time.
No real change here. I really like handjobs.
Compared to Pre-T, I must admit that I am more sexual and think more about getting off than before. I wouldn't say that it's the only thing I can think about, but I do find myself wanting to masturbate more now than ever before. I'm sure that's a combination of things, not just the T, but I'm sure the T helps.
The "little guy"
Like my voice, I believe he is probably done changing from month to month: he measures in at about 5 1/2 cm.
In relation to Pre-T, he's grown over 5 times his original size; no change since last year. There is a definite change when excited; he doesn't really grow in length, but instead grows in width and girth and sticks more straight out away from my body.
I can't believe it has already been two years since I started T. The time just flew by, like everyone said it would. I'm more than happy with my transition so far. I do wish my facial hair would grow in a little faster, and I don't know of a transman who would argue with a deeper voice or bigger dick. But everything has been so great, this little hormone has been so good to me, I can't complain about anything. I can, for the first time, be naked with my parter and let her jerk me off like I've longed to do for years. And I am looking forward to what the future will bring.
