Update on HRT, Coming Out



So far no mood swings but my nipples and breasts are swollen. I started estrogen about a month and a half ago and I cannot believe the change. I will need to start wearing a sports bra when I exercise. It is unbelievable. I have gone up at least one size. My mom and sister are big on top, so I don't know if that applies to me. However the changes have been really quick, so much so it is a little concerning. I went to a water park today and I had people looking at me. My son, who is 6 years old, poked my nipple which hurt and I snapped at him. I think he's noticed as well.

The hair on my body has thinned out considerably as well, particularly on my arms.

So, I was thinking things would move slow for me, not much would happen. But, it looks like that might not be the case.

My wife told a family friend about me, who is the first person at our church that knows. Her husband knows about me now as well. She was extremely supportive. I basically told my wife to tell anyone that she wants or wants to talk to about.

Regarding the church that I go to, I was going to tell our pastor about me, however lately the pastor has made negative trans* statements and the leadership in the church anti-gay statements which have been heartbreaking and disappointed over the last two months. I am not a person who is quick to judge, I usually need time to discern. But the more that I think and pray about it, the more heartbroken I am. There is more to this story that I am not saying right now, but I am tired. It has been a long day for me.

I hope that everyone is doing well.

Love and Blessings,

Nipples usually are sore for a very long time and at times itchy. Size of immediate family members do dictate roughly how large you will be. For me the largest was C and I got to a B. Great to hear that the hair on your body is thinning woo-hoo.

In regards to your pastor, if it was me and going there was important to me I would ask to have a one-on-one with them, be prepared and discuss trans. and be the one to educate them but be forewarned it may go against you if they have their mind set.

UK NHS advice regarding trans breast size is that a cup size smaller than your mother's is the norm. I also suspect that if you were heavy chested as a male it will also have a bearing.

Good luck with your religious issues.................
