What can I expect? [Aug. 17th, 2010|12:26 am]
Stopping Testosterone


I think I'm stopping t, and going back to being femme.

I know that hair thins and grows more slowly, and skin softens and you get curvier, and periods start again.

What happens with breast development if you've already had top surgery? I'm not thinking that you magically go back to how you were, but do you get any sort of regrowth? Does anybody know if this can be enhanced by taking top-up girl hormones?

It sounds as though most of the people on here aren't stopping t for the reasons I might be, but if anybody has any tips, experiences or generally anything useful/supportive to say about retransitioning then I'd love to hear from you (either here, or my journal accepts anonymous comments).

I know a handful of people who had top surgery and then later stopped T. As far as I know, none of them experienced any breast regrowth. I was also sleeping with one of them, so I would have definitely noticed.

Other than that, I don't have any real information for you unfortunately. I'm thinking that natural regrowth is probably not possible since all of the tissue that grows has been removed. However, I do not know this for a fact.

Good luck with your retransition. :)
