I usually don’t get morning wood, but this morning….wow.
Two days ago marks 5 months on T cream. My report continues to be that my changes are so gradual that I don’t really notice them from month to month. I know that my happy trail has spread since being on testosterone cream, but it isn’t something I feel I can verbally quantify on a monthly basis. Video coming soon.
May 3rd marked my fourth month on testosterone cream. Unfortunately, I don’t think I have experienced any changes during the last month, which indicates that it’s probably time for me to get some labs done to see what my T levels are. Today, I changed the location of my cream application to my back, in hopes that changing the site of application would produce more changes, as it did last time.
I have been on 50mg of T daily, which according to Nick Gordon’s guide and another FTM guide, is within the standard dosing (both stating between 50 - 100mg daily are typical transdermal testosterone doses).
I’ve never gotten my cock stuck in my zipper before, but I certainly just got one of my happy trail hairs ripped out by my zipper.
As MC pointed out the zits on my back, I suddenly realized that today is the third of the month, which means that I have been on testosterone cream for three months.
Just this past week, there’s been a noticeable increase in my body acne (chest, back - even some on my shoulders), as well as an increase in the hair that sprouts on my chest. Today, my voice cracked at least four times while I was speaking at work.
So, to re-cap: Things have generally been very slow and subtle for the past three months, but for some reason, the past seven days have brought about more noticeable changes.
I experienced very limited changes in the past month. That works fine for me since I’m not planning on a “full” physical transition and don’t necessarily have a linear path for my transition. However, I imagine that if I was using testosterone cream to achieve a “full” transition, I would be rather frustrated by the lack of changes at this point.
The most noticeable changes I’ve noticed in the past month have been my increasingly spotty, shiny complexion and a few sparse coarse hairs growing on my arms.
Saturday marked my two months back on testosterone cream. Upon acknowledging that, I realized that I’ve experienced little or no changes during the past month. I’m okay with that, but I’m curious as to what the reason for that is.
I’ve heard that you’re supposed to occasionally change the application site of testosterone cream. Since January, I’ve been putting it on the backs of my knees and the backs of my thighs. Yesterday, I decided to change locations and put it on my shoulders and abdomen.
…And just like that I could “feel” the T again. By this, I mean that I awoke various times throughout the night with a bundle of energy and anxiety, which is the first symptom I get when I put T into my system (fortunately, it only lasts a few days).
So, yes - in conclusion, I guess it’s important to change your site of testosterone cream application. I’m not sure why, but somehow it makes a difference.
