February 16, 2005: Pre-T Changes
I'm not even on T yet, but I've noticed some changes over the past couple of months so I'm just really making a note of them for my own records.

I was just in the bathroom and I noticed a sudden development. I was pulling up my underwear when I noticed that there was hair on the inside of my thighs, close towards my groin. There's quite a bit, enough to be noticeable anyway and it never used to be there! My chin has been severely itchy today as well and when I checked in the mirror, the regrowth is quite strong already. I have very definite hairs on my upper lip. I've only been shaving once a week, usually on a Sunday straight after my shower and it would last more or less till late Friday. It looks like I might have to start shaving twice a week now.
For the past month or so I've had a serious spot problem just under my chin as well, which I don't think the shaving has helped. I had an acne problem for a long time, till well into my mid-twenties but it's not been as bad as this for years! I've tended to get the occasional couple of spots usually around the time of the monthly hell but it clears up in a week. This just doesn't appear to be shifting. I had to go to the chemist the other day to see if I could get something for it because my usual witch hazel face wash didn't seem to be having any effect. It was quite amusing, I said to the pharmacist that I thought shaving could be making the spots worse and she didn't bat an eyelid, just suggested that it could be razor burn. I don't think it is, it looks very much like acne to me. Still at least I passed!
It's all a bit bizarre really, my voice stopped doing anything a while ago so I didn't think I was going to have any more pre-T changes. Looks like I might have been wrong!
