Transgender Health    by    Ruth Utnage

I began taking hormones about 60 days ago. Spironolactone pills and Estrodiol injections. I am developing as predicted, breasts are already growing etc. Which, to be frank…hurts. Like physically hurts. Who knew?

I’ve had boobs for 30 days and they’ve hurt every one of them! Sleeping on my stomach?

Not any more.

Watch out for water pressure, hugs, forearms, work spaces, taking my shirt on and off, and who could forget leaking…yeah, they leak. Neat.

They may be pain’s in the, ahem, chest, but they are mine and I feel better knowing they are growing and- I guess- working, despite it being a little uncomfortable.

What a strange feeling, pushing 40 and my body is literally growing. Cool.

With Love
Ruth Utnage
