I did not realise this would be so controversial.
To stop people misunderstanding me..
1. Medication has side-effects. Don’t take medication if you don’t need it.
2. Many people desperately need testosterone to live, myself included. Do not be discouraged. Cry with joy that there is a treatment out there to make your life liveable.
3. Do not play with testosterone; instead, find yourself during RLE, and take testosterone only if and when it’s needed.
The risk factors are likely to be no more than you would have if you were a cisman anyway (women outlive men). I know this. But they are still risk factors, and they have the same effect.
