Week 02 on Testosterone

A journal of noticed changes

Taken Wednesday, February 15th, 2017. One day after my second Testosterone Injection

On February 7th, 2017 I officially started testosterone injections. This series will be rather short entries with a summarization of the changes I’ve noticed thus far and a picture of at least my face to track some of the physical changes photographically.

While I still feel warmer on a whole, I have noticed that I’m also experiencing hot flashes. At various times I will feel incredibly warm, even when it’s relatively chilly. I’m also able to stay warm better; usually the first few moments under a blanket are spent slightly shivering as I try to warm up the fabric and air around me. Now I start feeling warmer when I put the blanket on.

Still don’t need to use facial moisturizer, but I still need lotion sometimes on my hands and arms. I also don’t feel excessively oily on my face yet.

I definitely smell like a guy now.

My energy levels seem to fluctuate. Sometimes I’m feeling really ready for anything, and others it’s difficult for me to get moving.

My appetite has also increased a bit. I’m not able to eat more in single sittings, but I am getting hungry more frequently.

When I’m upset, I’m slightly more irritable than usual. Pretty used to controlling my own irritability, though, so it hasn’t been an issue.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
