Bad Hair Day

Hmmm. The down side of transition remains my hair.

The fact that i am taking an “anti-androgen” – that’s a drug that stops the male hormone, testosterone, from being created in my body – should help reverse some male pattern baldness. Patches of sparse hair, so long as i lost them in the last few years, should regrow.

But i am told that the oestrogen i am now taking in order to feminise the rest of me is likely to lead to my hair becoming finer.


Is nothing simple?

I can see that i am doomed to playing around with hair extensions. Unless anyone has any better ideas.
