Pelvic Tilt changes from the Girl Juice, Hormones, Progesterone, body changes Trans Women Don't expect
Many people are eager for hormonal changes to take place rapidly. But it's very important to remember that the extent of, and rate at which your changes take place, depend on many factors. These factors include your genetics, the age at which you start taking hormones, and your overall state of health. Consider the effects of hormone therapy as a second puberty, and puberty normally takes years for the full effects to be seen. Taking higher doses of hormones will not necessarily bring about faster changes, but it could endanger your health. And because everyone is different, your medicines or dosages may vary widely from those of your friends, or what you may have read in books or online. Many changes aren't expected or talked about and we go through things that have changed in our bodies that have been discussed by very few others. In this episode we will go through them one at a time.

Tips and Tricks Dealing with the internal stresses of Transphobia, In the news, Puberty Blockers, Trans Youth,
A landmark study has revealed that puberty blocking medication can be “life-saving” for transgender youth. A Study published last week in medical journal Pediatrics, is the first of its kind. It examined a link between suicide rates and puberty blockers and (to the surprise of no one who has actually spoken to a trans person) it found that trans teenagers are less likely to attempt suicide if they have access to the medication.  I will be talking about the problems with transphobia. I wanted to put something together that helps deal with the bullshit and helps lessen the stress by making correct decisions and choices living life as a transgender person.
