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 had top surgery and have stopped T. I've had absolutely no regrowth. I do get sore in my chest however right before I get my period. But yeah, no regrowth at all for me.

Also, there is a yahoo group called "No going back" for people who are retransitioning. People on there are really helpful and seem to have a lot of info.
