Yesterday was estradiol valerate day, yay!! Every two weeks Tuesday, I get a shot in the leg full of estrogen, thanks to SO, who really has been wonderful throughout! Just a tad bit of blood, nothing more. It is intramuscular, so the needle has to travel a pretty good clip, and it is funny to see my leg kind of twitch once the needle has entered.
Apparently, we have now found my optimum dose, so I may be at this for a minute. As a matter of fact, Dr. Tangpricha wants me to cut the ev down to a lower dose. This sucks but sometimes, too much hrt can be a bad thing, and we don’t want that, do we!?
