Just curious – do you get to stop using tampons only after bottom surgery, or do the hormones stop menstruation?
Hormones stop menstration after a couple of months.
The hormones stop it. It’s awesome. If you don’t get a hysto, eventually you’ll have to have a kind of induced period to get rid of some build-up, though.
It depends, for most people testosterone stops periods after a few months, but for few it remains until/unless they get uterus removed.
Just fyi bottom surgery usually refers to some kind of SRS, not the hysterectomy that’s needed to stop periods. (Though sometimes they do hysterectomy at the same time as SRS, but it’s rare.)
Usually the hormones stop it, though some people still carry some around because there’s an amount of time where you can’t be sure if it’s *stopped* or just become sporadic. (It can also be a cue that your dose needs adjusting.)
Hormones stop menstruation after I think 6 months.
It actually greatly depends – mine stopped immediately, and I think the average is about 3 months.
I sometimes do that last one. It really confuses me when I do, and makes me feel bad. I really don’t understand it – it’s just language habits are difficult to break, I guess…
That pronoun thing gets me all the time. It makes me so happy to find out that other people do it too!
Funny – this happened the other day on a camping trip. I am still on low-dose T so I still get “shark week,” and I always have the emergency stash of “gerbils” ready to go. A girl got a surprise visit from Aunt Flo and I was able to provide, which made a bunch of us laugh. :)
This sort of stuff makes me feel less insecure about my own slip ups. So, uh, thanks :)
Oh thank God, it’s not just me! I still do this shit almost two years into social transition, though thankfully mostly in my head and very rarely now.
Oh, thank goodness I can laugh at this. Thanks. ;)
Yay, that’s so cool so many of you felt the same about being “behind” on your gender! Well, not that feeling insecure about slip ups is so great, but the fact that it’s something that a lot of us do (especially me). Kinda pulls the rug out from under any “more trans than thou” accusations.
Thank you so much for the last panel. I do this and sometimes feel really guilty about it. It’s a good reminder that we all undergoing a process :)
