As background, I’m 70 years old and started MTF HRT on March 22, 2016. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done for myself! I’m not out to many people and still present as male. I doubt that I’ll transition and am at what my counselor calls a plateau.
Physically my experience with HRT was that I started noticing a reduction in erection size in the first month. Breast buds started appearing at 3 months and my breasts continued to grow for about 5 years. I’m a solid B cup now and can’t go without a shirt in public. The hair on my body decreased and became finer. My leg hair has diminished over years to almost nothing. I haven’t had a lot of fat redistribution, sadly, but my skin has taken on a more feminine appearance. Beard growth has slowed down but not gone away.
Emotionally I felt euphoric when I started HRT. I feel better about myself and have been taking better care of myself. I have become more emotional and cry or get happy more easily. I started being more observant of colors and smells. My anger issues and aggression decreased dramatically. I’m calmer and easier to live with too.
Hope that helps! Feel free to ask more if you want!
