I drank 2 cups of coffee today because I’m writing for a top Beauty Blog in the Philippines! (Yasss honey, Miss Kaycee come through!)
By the way, I really like your name “Kaycee”, it reminds me of Miss Venezuela 2017 Keysi Sayago who’s one of my top bets to win Miss Universe.
Jesus Christ, my thoughts are going on myriad directions and my fingers are willingly frantic from this Blog Post. The pressure is sinking in.
Calm down Amanda! (Baliw lang besh?)
Today, I’m going to talk about something that’s still tabooed to most archaic Filipina women, the opposites of Miss Kaycee who’s modern, fit and fab.
Let’s continue by quoting one example of an archaic woman, Dionisia Pacquiao… “Mga bakla naka-inom ng mga pills! Hindi nga bagay inumin ng mga bakla que lalaki silang lalake, ginagawa sila ng Diyos na lalake, pero umiinom talaga sila ng pills para maglaki ang DIDI, bawal yan!”
If you share the same thoughts with her, kindly turn away from this post. Run fast because my man-made boobs are going to haunt you for the rest of your life! *boobs bounce towards you in a Sonic the Hedgehog spinning form speed*
Hormone Replacement Therapy
Hormone Replacement Therapy was originally studied for menopausal women and women who have hormonal imbalance problems.
Estrogen, the dominant hormone in women’s body, is produced in the adrenal glands, fat tissues, and ovaries. These “nakaka-vavae” hormones circulate in the bloodstream and affects the uterus, breasts, liver, heart, brain, bone, and other tissues.
Having low estrogen (which is mostly experienced by menopausal women) can cause difficulty in concentrating, hot flashes and night sweats, mood swings, fatigue or insomnia, brittle bones, painful sex, depression, weight gain, increase in UTIs, and the list goes on hence the study of HRT.
Hormone Replacement Therapy for Male to Female Transgenders
The common misconception about Hormone Replacement Therapy for Transgender Women AKA “pills” to the uninformed Neanderthals is that it acts like a wonder pill that’s created by David Blaine to magically give transgender women Pamela Anderson boobies.
Hormone Replacement Therapy is less trivial than breast enlargement.
HRT effects on Transwomen
Being a Transpinay, I need to match my emotions and thoughts with my physical appearance.
HRT helps in increasing the breast tissue but definitely won’t give you anything larger than an A-cup.
The effects that I really want from HRT are its androgen-blockers (shield against masculinity), less facial and body hair growth, decreased muscle density when working out, sweeter smell when sweating, calmer thoughts, clearer skin, fat distribution to thighs and hips, plumper and younger looking face, softer skin, decreased hair loss, and etc.
P.S. Read below if you are a Transwoman.
HRT is vital to any transwoman but kindly check with an endocrinologist first before taking steps into feminizing your body because you might not be able to handle HRT medication.
HRT is not just for BOOBIES
“Ako ang Pa-DEDE girl at walang makakapigil sakin!” (charot).
Nothing can stop me from taking hormones because it’s a necessity. Ayoko maging cement beauty (babaeng matigas).
I know someone who’s in dire need of HRT though. Try it Mommy D, it’ll greatly improve your sex life and give you more rational thoughts!
