Dear blog world,
When I walked into my appointment at the gender and sexual health clinic on February 21, 2018 I had no idea what to expect but was welcomed with open arms.
When I was called back the nurses checked my vital signs and talked about my gender dysphoria with me. They then insured me that I had come to the right place, and that I would be given all my options and would be treated with the utmost respect.
After my vital signs were taken a lovely doctor walked in and asked a bunch of questions to officially diagnose me with gender dysphoria. Once she was 100% sure that was what was truly plaguing me she discussed my options for hormones and made sure that I knew that I could change delivery vectors, or even stop them if I ended up not liking the results.
After discussing my options for about 45 minutes we determined that 2mg of estrogen, and 50mg of a testosterone blocker would be a good starting point.
When I got out of the hospital I had the stupidest grin on my face because I knew the end to my extreme mental pain was getting resolved.
Love and peace from Amena
