It’s that time of year again: Some notes for the guys starting T

Posted October 6th, 2011 by notaiden | 1 Comment

For some odd reason every year starting in late September and running until early November there seem to be an influx of guys starting T and asking questions.  Maybe it’s that the guys away from home for college can start the process when the school term does or something, I dunno.  In any case, here […]

Recent searches

While I’m working on a couple of more in depth posts I thought I’d go over the search terms I’m apparently fairly high ranked for, but haven’t actually addressed.  Figure if people are going to get here from them I should at least make sure they get information. when you start taking testosterone ftm will […]

Stopping T

Posted September 15th, 2010 by notaiden | 14 Comments

I probably should put up a post at some point about how I considered de-transitioning a year or so into starting T, but I can’t find the words.  Instead you guys are going to get a post about the things that did and didn’t happen when I stopped T during this period. It was…about six […]

Passing and Testosterone

Posted August 31st, 2010 by notaiden | 9 Comments

There’s this myth that every trans guy will magically start passing after six months to a year on T.  It’s bullshit.  Flat out bullshit. No one can tell you when you’re going to start passing.  I’ve been on T since I was 20 (I’m in my mid-20s now) and I’m still in that gender ambiguous […]

Random T changes I wasn’t expecting

Posted August 23rd, 2010 by notaiden | 4 Comments

When you start T you usually get a giant list of things you can expect to happen.  Voice dropping, facial and body hair growing, changes below the belt, it’s pretty standard.  Other guys often have their own things to add, usually about how much ass hair sucks and how often you’ll want to jerk off […]

Testosterone: It’s not magic

Posted February 22nd, 2010 by notaiden | 18 Comments

I’ve been trying to gain muscle for about the last three months.  It very much is an exercise in futility since NONE of the men in my family can gain muscle until they’re 30 or so.  My dad and uncles were all in the military, most of my male cousins are in now.  None of […]

Being off T sucks

Posted November 14th, 2009 by notaiden | 3 Comments

I once again have found myself in need of a T refill while between doctors.  I’d go to the local GLBT clinic, but [a] they’re vastly incompetent and [b] no longer have any respect for the community they serve.  I have gotten more shit at this clinic than anywhere else in my day to day […]

Anger Issues

Posted August 24th, 2008 by notaiden | 1 Comment

One part of being back on T that I’d managed to forget about: the quick flashes of anger at damned near everything.  It’s not a rage thing, I’m not seriously dangerous or anything.  I get mad just long enough to punch a guy and then feel horrible about it the second I’m done.  It’s not […]
