Surprising changes on T

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.

    Interesting observation. Not having super long or even nice eyelashes to begin with I haven’t noticed any changes in mine. I have noticed that my eye brows have thickened up and a few of the hairs have gotten pretty long and squirrely. Lots of subtle changes but every one of them makes a big difference.

    • Well, most of my body hair is long to begin with, so now on T I’m mostly bushy. My already long nose hair (had to trim it every now and then since I was a teenager) is now even longer, thicker and there’s more strands of hair too leaving me looking like a goat if I don’t trim them often enough. My eyebrows has always been on the bushy side, but now I’m starting to look like those old men with eyebrows that sprawl all over the place. There’s no subtitle changes there….

    • Hi, sorry about that. I’ve had a few posts in pipeline, but I’ve been so overwhelmed with work and family life that I never really had the time to write and post them. I haven’t even had time to read your posts, let alone be on Facebook or any other social media. I’ve barely answered emails! Luckily I have push notifications, otherwise I would have missed your call.
      Hopefully things will slow down soon so I get some time to catch up. I really need life to slow down quite a bit now!
      I hope everything is ok with you?

      • I am glad that you are just busy and everything seems OK. I haven’t really been posting. We lost our baby to liver disease in October and there is a big gap and heartache in our lives.

      • Oh, no! I’m so sorry!!!
        We lost our oldest dog in June after battling a rapidly escalating heart decease, so now we just have our two naked boys left. They’re a handful, but we still feel that we’re missing the girls a lot. Especially my wife. She’s talked about getting another, small, female dog in the future. She misses our grand lady a lot!

      • I’m so sorry about the girl you lost, Fredrik. We said we would not get another dog child, as the heartache is just too much. But you are young and have the energy. Enjoy your two and four-legged babies and be safe. Take care.
