Xmas came early for Anna

Well, I didn’t get any proper presents of course, but I got the next best thing, a present from my doctor. A few days before Xmas I had to see my GP about prostate shrinking medication that they want to put me on. I asked the doc if they shrink other bits of the body, and so he looked the drug up in his book. I’m on hormones. Probably not as strong as the ones they give us when we want to transition, but hormones never-the-less.
The GP said ‘discomfort in the breasts with some growth can be experienced.’
‘That’s OK’ I said.
At the chemists, a woman came and saw me, and said I was not to let anyone near these pills who is pregnant, especially if the protective coating has been rubbed off. I didn’t realise these drugs were so powerful. All of which pleased me no end. It will all take several months to happen though, the shrinking – and I hope, the growing. When I first got diagnosed as genderdysphoric, and taking to all things girlie like a duck to water, I tried to enlarge my breasts with exercises and massaging. It did make a bit of difference, but my nipples seemed to be in the wrong place – so I stopped. I guess, they’ll still be in the wrong place, but who knows – LoL.

I didn’t think I would do my usual under-dressing and make-up while the kids were about, but in the end I thought – ‘Why not?’ and did it anyway. I just had to make sure I didn’t leave any underwear about. As you know, my make-up consists of a small amount of eye-shadow, not enough to show, but enough to be known to me. People don’t see past the male body, it seems, and don’t notice girl stuff, as they aren’t expecting it. I’m very tempted to escalate the coverage, but it’s probably sensible to remain low key – LoL.

I wish you all a super 2012. Keep those lovely blogs coming – I get so much fun reading them. Hugs. Anna x

    Hi Anna
    Happy New Year to you. I didn’t know or had forgotten you are on hormones. Mind you with my memory thats isn’t surprising; I wish there were drugs for that, lol! Or are you telling us that the prostate drug is a hormone that shrinks your prostate but as a side effect enlarges breasts? If thats the case, wow, almost wierd that you should accidentally be given something that you want. Reminds me of the Heineken ad that ‘refreshes the parts other beers cannot reach’! Glad you made it OK through Christmas, knickers intact!!
    And yes I must write a blog soon!

    Hi Tina,

    Yes, I’ve been given what I want by accident. Is that cool or what. Xmas was good too, because I got my nails just right (for me LoL), long and rounded, even though they broke days later, bare cleavage area for open necked shirts, and no hair below the wrists, which is about s good as it gets for me.

    Happy new year to you to you and A-M too. I’ll look forward to that blog 🙂

    Hugs, Anna xx

    I do hope that the hormones do all for you that you hope. I can imagine that others would worry about being prescribed such medication, but not our Anna! I’ll be fascinated to hear how you progress – hopefully not just with some breast enhancement, but also a more feminine complexion.

    I see the doc. on Feb 14th and I hope he’s going to recommend something similar for me.

    Hi Angela,

    Yes, I’m hoping for a lot, but I keep telling myself not to bank on it though. One thing I’ve noticed already – my sex drive has dropped like a brick, but it was a nuisance anyway – LoL. It may be coincidence of course, but I’m hoping it isn’t 🙂

    Have fun,

    Hugs, Hugs, Anna xx

    Wow what a gift. I have never thought about taking hormones but I guess if I was prescribed them for something medical and just had to deal with the side effects that would be okay, especially if it got rid of my body hair.
    Best of luck and enjoy
    Hugs
    Susan

      hmmmmmm….maybe. I’m not yet ready to lose my sex drive!!

      • Anna Arendt Says:

        Hi Tina,

        Although Jay and I are very tactile and loving, lots of hugs and kisses, holding hands and cuddling, we’ve drifted into the platonic zone of inter-relationships. That’s not a criticism, or whinge, it’s just a different expression of our loves for each other.

        Hugs Anna a

      • TinaCortina Says:

        Hi Anna, yes I thought you would say that and I am very glad to hear it!

      • Anna Arendt Says:

        LoL – Yes – well, you would have seen my first attempt by email anyway – but the words didn’t convey what I actually meant. I was then mortified, especially if A-M saw it. Your relationship is vastly different from ours in content, but our loves for our partners are just as strong.

    Hi Susan,

    Lordy, I hadn’t thought about that, but it would be so cool if it happens. If anything at all happens it will be cool.

    Hugs, Anna x
