How the fuck do I self med without killing myself? I can get hormones over the counter in my country, but doctors won't recognize nor treat me because in my backwards country transgender people don't exist.
Dose 4 mg of Estradiol valerate and 200 mg of spironolactone seem alright?
I'm 25 years old, 5' 7", and 152 pounds.
Token unrelated picture.
Well, half your problem is handled by being able to get 'mones OTC. But yeah, dosing wrong can happen. Ask around, but also double check the meds online versus any other meds you take, or any health issues you have.
What you want is 17beta Estradiol (the name brand is e-trace) if you can get it. Valerate should still work, but I know that normal estradiol is preferred. The recommended dose for 17 beta-estadiol is 2-6mg. Valerate I'm pretty sure the dose is the same for valerate, but I'm not sure. Since this is a hormone your height/weight doesn't impact it. It has to do with your hormone levels and how your body interacts with it.If you can take the 4mg in 2 doses because your hormones end up spiking with each dose.Also take it sublingually (if valerate let's you do that of course)***Watch out for deep-vain thrombosis since estrogen products increase the likely hood of it*** - a bunch of pain in your thigh is the usual sign***DO NOT SMOKE as this will significantly increase the likelihood of deep vain thrombosis***
The normal dose is like 100-200mg I'm pretty sure so you're within range. Also see if you can split into 2 doses of 100mg a day instead of 1 200mg dose (I believe most forms of spiro let you break them in half easily if your pills are 200mg).Sadly this one is a bit more dangerous then E. Spiro is really hard on your kidneys.It's potassium sparing - which means it's easier to get too much potassium in your blood. As long as you don't spend all day eating bananas or avocados you should be fine. 1 or 2 a day isn't enough to do anything.
It's expensive, but if you can have your hormone levels checked after a month to see if you're in range. (T should be under 54 mg/ml and E should be from 100 - 200 pg/ml)Also you should probably have a blood test to check if your organs are intact while taking spiro. (Sorry I forget the exact test)
Good luck, be safe. Try to get as informed as possible about this stuff.
