As a transgender man being a couple years on hormones, I thought I would never see a period again. I was wrong.
Friday I noticed bleeding and turns out the monster had returned after not making an appearance for at least two years. I got in contact with my doctor and she mentioned it could be caused from being late on my hormone shot or missing shot day. I had never heard of this happening and didn't know it was possible.
I've gotten upset a number of times because of this. A situation as small as this, has made me feel less of the man I know I am. In my mind, boys don't get periods. They aren't supposed to. But me, having one right now, is torture. I'm hoping I won't see it again.
This has definitely made me more aware of being consistent with my shots.
