Haven't had the tiem/energy to post this till now,

I Started recently on Androcur (1/4 50mg every 2 days).

Long Story Short a Dr I went to found that my DHT levels were so high they were literally at a "Dangerous Level" (explains the increased dysphoria and stress issues I had been having among other things) yet at the same time my T levels are lower than a bio female.
(long story to that that I Might go into later if asked) the High DHT was from a kind of disorder I will explain some other time if you want to know.

DR Recommended also taking either T or E, I hesitated & said I will see what the androcur does first.

(one of my main concerns is/was over supply being low with the pandemic, another being a strong desire to not have to go through the drama that going on E could likely end up causing.)

might still go for it, will decide soon enough.

So-Far the Androcur Effects have been purely beneficial, less stress, considerably less brain fog, blunted Dysphoria, reduced rapid unwanted body hair regrowth (it could grow back up to 1/8" (about 1.5mm) in 10 hours or less), Considerable Mood Improvement (far more even/stable, less prone to Extreme stress issues), Far Less Issues with Excessive Sweating, 75% greater Mental Focus, Oddly a fair bit more Energy also.

Just overall, Better. Smile

Edit to point out more recent posts, i'm going full....

Androcur (Cyproterone) is not available in the US.

As a US Military (Navy) veteran, I utilize the Veterans Administration for some of my health needs. The first doctor I came out to was my VA Primary Care Physician who immediately prescribed Finasteride (Propecia) to lower my DHT.

I am currently on Lupron-Depot which has dropped my testosterone levels to below female levels and while I do not get the warm fuzzies I got when I was taking Estradiol Valerate, I am a much more quiet person (internally and externally).

I do not understand your reluctance to take estrogen. You certainly do not need to offer and explanation but I found the benefits truly beneficial.

combination of things, part is down to an apparent shortage i have heard about from numerous sources, and as I said partly due to a hesitation by not wanting to have to deal with un needed drama that would eventually likely ensue from family.

I'm 90% likely to go ahead, but as I said at first I hesitated & decided to see what the Androcur does, which has been nothing short of awesome.

Earlier this decade there was a lot of conversation in our predecessor forum (and other trans oriented forums) regarding the availability of Cyproterone (Androcur). I checked the website https://www.drugs.com/cons/androcur-reg.html and it indicated Androcur was not available in the U.S.

I do not doubt that you got the script but maybe your doctor found an off-lable use that allowed her to prescribe it for you.

I definitely understand the not wanting drama part.
