Before starting HRT I read all kinds of text on what changes to expect on testosterone. So far I’ve been prepared for all changes in my body that has taken place. All except one. It’s not a huge thing, but I’m surprised no one seems to have mentioned it before.
I’ve always had freakishly long eyelashes, if I would put mascara you could see them reach my eyebrows (making all the girls envious as I didn’t need falsies or thickening/extending mascara). Then yesterday I realized I’ve lost about 5 mm (1/5 inch)! As I said, it’s not a huge thing for me but rather an intriguing change. Before starting HRT I thought about how my long eyelashes would, if at all, affect what gender strangers would see me as. But with this discovery I don’t even have to think about it anymore as my eyelashes have reached the “normal” range in length.
Consequently this also means that your eyelashes are completely renewed within 6 months wether you notice them falling off or not.
So there you have it, an addition to the list of changes on T: possibly shorter eyelashes.
