I would only recommend this under doctor supervisionThe best place to inject estrogen is in the buttocksIt will generally work for up to 3-4 weeks.You will notice some changes immediately. Other more permanent changes like breast development takes months
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

What changes will I notice immediately? I just injected the first vial, but I am feeling nothing special. So, one vial will last 3-4 weeks, then I will inject the next vial in 3 weeks, is that ok?

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

1vial with 1ml dose 10mg/ml

I am not satisfied, I injected one week ago and I think I don´t feel anything different. I red that it is common to inject 10mg a week to come to 40mg in a month. Why not doing it every week? And what are the first signs that it kicked in?

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
you have to start small. That 40 mg per month is maximum. you don't want to start at the max
