You are definitely hurting yourself by trying to do it on your own. Hormone replacement therapy is very complicated and can have a lot of unwanted and dangerous side effects if not monitored by a physician familiar with trans-sexual medicine. If you insist on doing this own your own, then I don't suggest using real estrogen. I would rather you use herb combinations such as Mammorex or Bust Rx; they mimic estrogen and cause the body to think it's getting estrogen, without all the dangerous side effects of true estrogen treatment that is not being monitored by a physician.
