A couple of weeks ago, I thought it was time I stopped waiting for calls back from psychiatrists and just do something. As such, I did a lot of research and decided I might as well self-prescribe hormones. I have read about all the risks involved and I will be getting regular blood tests. I just felt that I needed to do this and couldn’t take waiting for it any more.
I am starting myself out on 2mg Estradiol and 100mg Spironolactone per day. From what I’ve read, these doses are fairly low and would be a good starting point. After I’ve got my blood work done, I may increase the doses as needed. I took my first dose last night and of course don’t expect anything immediately. I just can’t wait until things do start to happen though.
