The process of getting legitimately prescribed hormones seem strenuous as fuck. Do most people just get them through other means?
>>
If you go through an informed consent clinic it's not so bad, I got mine in three months, could have been two months if they hadn't screwed up. No RLE or gatekeeping whatsoever, they just asked me to explain how I felt and drew blood and wanted to talk with my therapist.

Just be glad estrogen isn't a scheduled substance.
There are men with serious health effects from low test that are unable to get prescriptions because modern society would prefer to chop your balls off then let a man have normal T levels.

Aww, it's the self-identifying beta male in the other thread that thinks it deserves free testosterone but can't be asked to go out and get it. Haven't you started transitioning yet? The thread was very clear on that being your best option.

Just buy it fam it's like 30$ for 10ml of 250mg/ml test e smh tbh

My prescription came through 14 days after my first visit to my informed consent clinic. They opted to skip the psych screening and go with blood test immediately since I was living full time and had my name legally changed already.

I started self medding for a few months and then saw an endo and got a script.
No therapy was required, though I did have quite a bit before, so Maybe I was unknowingly prescribed with GID beforehand or something?

Yeah, I agree, ftms have it bad sometimes

Not sure what thread you're referring to. My test levels are actually fine but the scheduling of testosterone was mostly lobbying from sports organizations. It's a stupid law. They lobbied for it because they wanted to save money on drug testing and managerial costs related to dealing with doping.
There's not really any reason for it anymore since the drug market is flourishing these days so sports organizations have to dump money into drug testing regardless of the law.

I went through the whole official procedure in Canada. Went to my family doctor to get some additional info for therapists in the city, was officially diagnosed with GID, spoke with my therapist for about a year before I began in minimal perscriptions, and now I am at the 1Year/4.5Mmonth mark.

It is really recommended to go through the official process because getting the prescriptions unofficially can/potentially cause problems as you are required to check up with a doctor for regular blood work to make sure things are okay.

And if the doctor finds out you are being irresponsible with buying pills or w/e, they probably wouldn't help, or i'd imagine they wouldn't.

In Canada that's illegal for doctors to do. If they refuse bloodwork I'd suggest suing. It's a guaranteed win so you really have nothing to lose.
Doctors here aren't allowed to refuse services like that.

There have been doctors that have lost their medical licenses for refusing blood and liver work for alcoholics and drug users. It's not the doctors job to be your moral authority, it's their job to keep you healthy.

Are there any ways a lazy woman who gets mistaken as a guy too often can look more feminine? I force myself to wear a choker so people can discern the fact I am a girl. My hair is growing out too so that's helpful. I don't want to go to doctors because then they'll be "You're already a girl. You don't need this" kinda thing. Diet??

I suppose you had a point, I was not really talking about doctor's in Canada specifically, I probably should of specified that. I more in line meant by if you need a litter of recommendation or something (Like I did) for the SRS, I would assume there could be some complications depending on country.

Though still, It is definitely recommended to do the standardized procedure. It doesn't take long by average (despite my situation taking longer).

Don't be lazy. You have to maintain feminine features, like eyebrows for example or hair/hairstyles. You have to put in some effort. If you post a pic it would be easier to pick things you can work on improving so you're not mis-gendered.
>>
>>5055048
Yeah but there is no harm in self-medding here. If you're worried about what your therapist thinks get your family doctor to write you up for the lab forms. I think it might be a pain to pursue legal action but I doubt any doctor would refuse anyway.
>>
>>5055059
>no harm in Self-Medding
If you start slow, and build up to higher dosages, yeah. But if you rush to high/maximum dosages, there can be problems.
>>
>>5055070
I meant more in terms of your process on the way to official treatment. Like if you're worried about what your therapist thinks of self-medding then you don't actually have to tell them since any doctor in Canada can assist you with bloodwork. They might not know about trans stuff though so that's up to you.

Well, I can tell you that when I wanted to start hrt, I just started ordering hrt illegally for the first month or two, scheduled a doctor's appointment for a basic checkup, went in and was like "Hey, I'm taking hrt meds self medicated. I would like to do this the right way. Would you give me a script? Otherwise I will just continue to order hormones from overseas and move on with my life."

And she was just like "Oh. Um... let me grab some forms..."

Ten minutes later, she came back with informed consent forms, and I've had a script/blood checks ever since.
