This has been a pretty major concern of mine too. First off, if you start to lose more hair in the shower, don't necessarily start freaking out right away. At about 3-4 months on T, I started to shed a lot of hair, and I was convinced that meant I was losing my hair. Except I wasn't. It was just temporary increased shedding. At 7 months it's back to normal and my hair isn't thinner at all. I can't really tell if my hairline has changed though tbh. It kind of looks the same to me, but since I have longer hair, it might just be harder to tell.

Do you have a hair stylist? One you've been going to for a while, that knows your hair? What helped a lot for me was my hair stylist telling me that she noticed no difference in my hair. I think it's a good idea to have a history with a good stylist so you have a second pair of eyes to tell you whether or not there is actual cause for concern.

In my panic research, I read that Finasteride/Minoxidil is your best bet in halting hair loss, but you can also use DHT blocking shampoo. And apparently peppermint oil helps. There's also dermarolling. I'd do your own research on all of this though.

If you have fine hair like I do (fine...just a lot of it), I've tried two shampoos that have helped my hair overall feel thicker. If you have a higher budget, Reline Biotin Thickening Shampoo worked really well. It's just that it's pretty expensive (along with the conditioner) for the amount you get, though with medium length hair it lasted me almost 3 months (and that was with the shampoo bottle breaking in transit...). If you have short hair I'm sure it will last even longer. It might also be cheaper for you if you live the US; it cost me over $70 CAD when all was said and done including shipping.

I'm now using Andalou Naturals Argan Shampoo which is also pretty nice, and much, much cheaper. I haven't been using it as long as I used the other stuff though, so I can't say whether or not it's as good. But so far, so good.

Good luck man! I know it's stressful. Just try not to freak out quite so much at only 3 months. Easier said than done though, I know.

Whats best for you will depend on your body shape and size. Gc2b is more comfortable with one compression panel in the front, This makes it more stretchy but may not be good if you have a lot to bind. Under works is a rougher and all of its is made of the compression material. Less comfortable but offers stronger compression. Buy them with a gift card.

You can get Underworks on Amazon. They have this which can easily pass as a bra. This is also more comfortable than the udnerworks binders. I found it to bind about as good as gc2b.

Found a ‘sports bra’ kind of binder in an article about the best kinds of binders:

And here’s the article in which I found it, in case you want to read that person’s opinion/thoughts on it:

Hope that helps, and good luck :)

I can tell you what products I use for mine. I've tried a lot of products. The stuff I like is

Beard Guyz Beard Serum with Grotein 20, 1 ounce

Cremo Styling Beard Cream,Thickening, 4 oz

Shea Moisture African Black Soap With Shea Butter 8 oz

They've both been the best at making my beard look fuller and styling it. I think the beard serum worked best when it was shorter and the cremo works better with my longer beard now. Mine's pretty long so if I don't use product I look bad lol.

Beard shampoo isn't at all necessary and most of them include oils that block dht so they won't help grow your beard either. Waste of money. I just use african black soap. It's good for my face and my beard. Also it doesn't contain any parabens or propylene glycol.

All that being said. You can always pick up a basic beard balm and use the same soap you wash with. Just don't get anything with dht blocking oils such as lavender oil, rosemary oil, tea tree oil, pumpkin seed oil, saw palmetto oil, and emu oil.

If it's muscle-based pain (like a cramp), then yes, magnesium may help. I take it daily for spasticity/chronic pain, and a big dose when I get a migraine.

Many people find magnesium calming (hence products like Natural Calm) and can help make you sleepier at bedtime. It's also helpful for treating constipation, as it relaxes the muscles of your digestive tract (along with all your other ones).

I've taken this one for about a year.

I'm not a big believer in most supplements, but magnesium has good evidence of effectiveness, relatively low cost, and few (if any) unwanted side effects. If you want to try it, you'll know within a day or two if it's helping. Heck, if nothing else, it may help ease the tension of living in pain.

I got it on Amazon. I have sensitive skin. This one is only 1% glycolic. I would still apply a little to a small area on the inside of your arm first to test it. If that goes well test it on a small area of your face.

It says to leave it on for 10-20 minutes. The first time I used it I only left it on for a few. It burned a bit and some reviews said that was normal but others didn't so I think that my vary person to person based on sensitivity and if your skin is dry. I worked my way up to 10 minutes.

Then I apply a lot of moisturizer for a few hours. I use a soap free facial cleanser to remove the moisturizer and apply an oil. Leaving moisturizer on can weigh down the hairs and make them ingrown.

My recruitment package got dropped once Mattis released his statement on trans service members. If you are willing to stop T for 3 years, have zero gender-confirming surgeries and serve as a female, you'd be able to enlist. Here's the official requirements from the Pentagon with the qualifiers below.

"Transgender persons with a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria are disqualified from military service, except under the following limited circumstances: ( 1) if they have been stable for 36 consecutive months in their biological sex prior to accession; (2) Service members diagnosed with gender dysphoria after entering into service may be retained if they do not require a change of gender and remain deployable within applicable retention standards; and (3) cunently serving Service members who have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria since the previous administration's policy took effect and prior to the effective date of this new policy, may continue to serve in their preferred gender and receive medically necessary treatment for gender dysphoria.

Transgender persons who require or have undergone gender transition are disqualified from military service.

Transgender persons without a history or diagnosis of gender dysphoria, who are otherwise qualified for service, may serve, like all other Service members, in their biological sex."

haha, i'm sure there's a cultural component to this 😁 But if you're curious what the hell we do with these things....

I do tech work, and even just at the office or around the house i use my EDC (a Swiss Huntsman) a lot...

  • Opening boxes, bags, envelopes, clam shell packaging
  • cutting fabric or loose threads (on clothes, or cutting sheets to make a handy rag or pouch)
  • eating lunch! -- cutting into apples, baked potatoes, bread slices, stubborn bags of chips, etc.
  • stripping insulation off wires
  • cutting zip ties
  • prying open stubborn cases
  • cutting lengths of string or rope
  • poke an extra hole in cloth, plastic or thin metal
  • digging around in tough or rocky soil to excavate a weird rock, interesting plant, or some old item someone dropped
  • My knife is a multitool and i easily use the scissors and phillips screwdriver as much as the knife! Common non-knife activities include: Cutting up paper, unscrewing computer cases, opening cans.

    Beyond that, some of us are outdoors -- either in the woods or backyard -- a decent amount. Outside i also have a second EDC (a Benchmade Griptillian) that fits a little better in the hand and locks. In addition to all the knife uses listed above i might also...

  • cut up roots or vegetables
  • prying up staples from wood
  • stir hot liquids (or whittle a branch to stir hot liquids)
  • cut a stem or branch cleanly (sometimes picking can rip or tear a plant in a way that can make it more difficult for it to heal from the injury)
  • trimming off loose hanging branches around the yard (otherwise plants can get injured if the loose branches get tugged on)
  • clean fish, cutt and trim fishing line

    I personally use knives for a few other things outdoors too -- clearing away beeswax and propolis, stripping bark from branches, etc. -- but they're not as common. But at the same time a lot of people outdoors have other specialty uses they'll also use their EDC for, depending on their particular hobbies.

I switched from clearasil to products and started using witch hazel on my face.

I sometimes get skin peels if my acne is really bad. I've struggled with really severe acne my whole life though, it's not just a hormones/puberty thing for me. I even went on medication at one point, but it gave me severe sunburns.
