Regarding Hormone Therapy?
Hallo.. I want to ask a question. Please introduce me to Fanny, a Shemale/Transgender. I want to ask a question.. When I have Estrogen Hormone Therapy, can I immediately take Spironolactone Pills. hormone testosterone, right.. So how good is it? Please explain yes. So as not to be wrong
Giving additional estrogen hormone is indicated in those who have disturbances in the production of the hormone estrogen, such as in women who experience menopause. Giving the hormone estrogen to men, especially for the purpose of making the breasts bigger and physical shape more feminine, is an inappropriate use for indications. But that doesn't mean it's absolutely prohibited, it just has to be based on clinical considerations and supervision from a doctor.
If it is not in accordance with the indications for the use of the hormone estrogen, it will have a negative impact on health, although the effect does not appear immediately but will slowly increase the risk of blood vessel blockage, heart attack, stroke, breast cancer.
For this reason, supervision by a doctor is needed in undergoing estrogen hormone therapy, especially in transgender women. So that these risks can be minimized. So the act of self-medication (providing self-medication) using hormone therapy is not justified because it can be harmful to your health.
The dosage requirement for a drug, especially for a hormone group, is certainly different for each individual, so it cannot be averaged if someone is suitable for using "X" type therapy then added "Y" drug and then you will be suitable for that type of therapy.
Therefore, Fanny is expected to consult an andrologist or an internal medicine specialist who has studied the discipline of endocrine science.
