I'm going to be starting counselling about my "gender issues" in the near future - I've had my initial consultation and have been referred so it's now a waiting game. One question I forgot to ask during my consultation was about some side effects of hormone treatment;
Can the hormones make one feel broody? Has anyone experienced this before?
I ask because my partner (who is FtM) and I really don't want to have kids. I'm looking at sterilisation anyway, but the thing that's worrying me about taking hormones is that I've heard of people getting mood swings or becoming depressed so I really need to have a good think about whether or not prescribed hormones are a good idea. I'm fine about the physical changes, but I really don't know what would happen if broodiness didn't occur and it's kinda scary!
I remember a couple of replies from the previous thread saying that they can be like rolling a dice, but if anyone can offer any further insight I'd really appreciate it.
