HRT – Week 23 Check-in

Last week’s dose: 4mg/day estradiol.

Physical: Due to a change in pharmacies and prescription fulfillment, my formulation has changed from the Barr Laboratories 886 2mg tabs to Watson Pharmaceuticals 498 2mg tabs. Occasional twinges and burning sensations that are fleeting along with feelings of fullness and “growth”. I take my dose in the morning and I notice that the sensations peak around midday and the fullness comes on in the evening. My skin is now noticeably softer.

Emotional: Doing reasonably well. I still have my moments of, “Oh shit, what the hell am I doing???” but they pass fairly quickly. Overall, I’m feeling much more relaxed (but I am on vacation this week!) and I am becoming increasingly accepting of myself.
