I've always wondered something about trans folk. Because our bodies naturally produce their respective hormones, does that therefore mean anybody who is trans has to keep taking suppliments to counteract the balance of naturally produced hormones versus delivered? Or is there some sort of balancing point where your body is just altered enough that it switches to producing the opposite kind in greater quantity naturally?

Signature goes here.
To my understanding you gotta keep it up because your body will always try to produce a certain amount of each, but I don't think it's as big of a thing as you get older since after your 40s your hormone balance will start to fuck itself up on its own.

Essentially, you have to shut down your body's natural production of sex hormones using one drug, and introduce the desired hormones back into the body using another.

It's a lifelong treatment.

Kinda what I figured. That sounds semi-awful to have to rely on the medical system to provide the neccessary means, especially if you're american. I bet it costs a bit doesn't it?

Yeah, it can be very expensive, but if you have good insurance, or if you shop for a pharmacy that carries your meds at a low price, it can be manageable.

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
Any weird side-effects?

actually, I've noticed fewer weird side effects vs my previous treatment, but it hasn't been a week yet so I'm not totally sure

And further induce the production of soyboys? I'll pass.
