Forty-Two Months on T
November 26, 2006
No major changes from the three-year update. I'm still noticing a few more hairs in my sideburn areas from time to time. At this rate, perhaps I'll be able to actually grow sideburns by the time I'm 40. If I'm lucky.
Also no major changes in body hair since the three-year update. Perhaps a little more chest hair, but that's all that's been remotely noticeable.
I fell off of the gym bandwagon over the summer, and once school started again I never got back on it. Surprise, surprise. I'm slowly becoming more accepting of the fact that I have a female frame and will continue to carry more fat in my hips/buttocks regions than I like. Maybe at some point (if it is a remaining source of dysphoria after bottom surgery) I will have some lipo done to reduce it, but I'm still holding out hope that I can achieve enough results with a better diet and more exercise.
No gym = no real muscle definition. Again, nothing new to report.
Acne still seems to be fairly under control. Now that I've moved to a colder environment, I think that has helped a little, too. I am still taking Minocycline twice a day and use Brevoxyl-8 Creamy Wash in the shower with Retin-A Micro 0.04% for my face when needed.
No noticeable changes.
Increased recently, but I don't think that has to do with testosterone. I chalk it up to finding my soulmate.
The "little guy"
He still measures in at about 5 1/2 cm, as I think he's done changing from testosterone.
Nothing new to report.
