Estrogen for transgender

Common Questions and Answers about Estrogen for transgender


Avatar m tn My husband of 27 yrs recently told me that he is transgender. We are in counseling. He tells me he loves me and does not want to loose me. He says he would do what ever I want. Today I found out he was thinking about taking estrogen hormone. I don't know what to do. I love my husband I don't want him to be a women.
Avatar n tn I apologize for not knowing what it stands for. Also the medication you will be starting in August, (Lupron) is a medication not used in the treatment of anxiety/panic or depression issues. Being so young and making this decision, which is huge, I would only hope that they offer you therapy throughout this entire process. It is very difficult for me to believe they wouldn't be counseling you at each and every step.
Avatar n tn Hi, There is no specific hormonal trigger for bladder cancer. Of concern though would be the risk for breast cancer with supplemental hormones. The effect on prostate cancer risk is harder to assess. While odds are it will reduce the prostate size, results for prostate cancer prevention have also shown that there is still a risk for getting cancer.
Avatar n tn Any natural, liver friendly treatments for use in Estrogen Replacement Therapy?? - susan400: 07/18/2005 BTW, what does your biopsy show and what is your genotype?
Avatar m tn  It's my understanding that HIV-1 has been ruled out with the RNA but that only checks for HIV-1. Would my pre-existing conditions delay seroconversion for HIV-2 with the ELISA and rapid tests beyond 15 weeks? 2.  My main concern is HIV-2 because the RNA doesn't cover that. I've had a lot of testing. I don't want to infect my wife with HIV. I've read crazy stories online where people didn't test positive for years.  This however seems like dated information.  3.
Avatar f tn I am wondering if supplementing a SERM (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator) with t-blockers and estrogen would allow me to feminize my body while preventing breast tissue development. I understand this would be an unorthodox use of SERMs, but the only other alternative I could think of would be to just take t-blockers which I know is fairly dangerous in the long-term. Would this use of SERMs be safe/effective? Thank you!

Avatar n tn I happened to get this in my mailbox and had a similar problem over 5 years but I fixed it. for me it was a combination of not being around women for a very long time and high blood pressure. My testosterone levels dropped and the urologist said that that is where the phrase "if you dont use it you lose it" came from. (you need to get your hormone levels up as well to keep him going..
Avatar n tn In my research and request for a stronger libido, I'm looking for the best estrogen blocker. I have been and will continue keeping up with my workouts and diet, so hope this has been a positive factor. I really wish you all the best and that your sense of "normalcy" returns. Keep us posted.

Avatar n tn For the past 4 years I have been experiencing horrible symptoms. It seemed that the whole thing started as a sinus infection but then I went for a CT scan of sinuses and they were clear. I have been having symptoms of dizziness, head pain, shakiness and a spaced out kind of foggy feeling like i am watching my life from the outside - all day every day. There are some times for a couple of hours during the day that the symptoms may lift and give me a few moments to live- but not much.
