So this week I finally finally got my first T-shot!
The night before, my mind wasn’t nervous, but I was wide awake and couldn’t sleep. Then the morning after, I woke up super early. My body was going bananas, full of adrenaline and my heart was pumping. I had no appetite and the best way to describe it is “ugh”.
Picking up the T at the pharmacy went well.
Went to the doctor to get the injection done. I know some people do it themselves, and more frequently, but the style I’m doing is every 4 months (Except shot #2, which will be in 6 weeks, then the rest will be every 12th week)
The actual injection was ok. I could feel the sting of the needle, but it was alright. Then as she injected it, I could feel a sense of, hm.. pressure maybe? And after it was done, I won’t lie. It did feel really weird and did hurt… And it hurt for the whole day! :’D Especially when I sat down on the toilet or stood on the foot on the side the injection was done.
To describe the pain, it felt like I had fallen on my bum and hit a pointy rock. It eased up a little in the evening, and the day after it felt more like I was sore from going to the gym.
I’m curious if it’ll hurt this much and for so long every time, or if it depends. I guess I’ll find out in 6 weeks.
Oh, the funny thing is that the moment I was done at the doctor’s, all the nervous feelings and restlessness was poof, gone. Funny how my mind was ready and relaxed, but my body sort of knew that something wild was about to happen.
I keep wondering how long it’ll take before I notice anything, and what the first thing I’ll notice will be. The hormone doctor said that the first thing that’ll happen is a voice change, which can happen after the first shot. I always thought that would come later. I DON’T MIND though, my voice is probably the biggest insecurity I have now. I’m… quite masculine looking?? so when people see me, they may perceive me as a guy, but the moment you hear my squeaky baby voice, you know…
I’m also super curious to see how my work outs will be affected by T. I’ve been going to the gym regularly already (Or at least before the corona lock down), so the habit and routine is there already, I just need to get back into it properly.
Anyway, I’ll try remember to write again once I start noticing things.
