Who is a Trans man?
The person who is assigned female by birth but identifies as male, who called a trans man. A trans man might be interested in the process of sex reassignment surgery or female-to-male transition though It's not mandatory.
Testosterone: Hormone Replacement Therapy
Generally, the human body produces estrogen and testosterone. A female body has higher estrogen than testosterone. So, hormone replacement therapy allows to boost the testosterone level and decreases the estrogen hormone. Testosterone helps a trans man to have a better life. Usually, it takes 6-8 months to visible the changes. But it's not happening for everybody.
Every human body reacts to medicine in different ways. Some bodies quickly catch the hormone and some may take some time. It might be 2 years to visible the body changes. Sometimes it takes a long time to visible the result. In some cases, voice change might be slow. It depends on the body.

Before this post, we have shared some beard growth advice and we will share some images again.
After getting some results, we paused some months for using beardo oil. But there are no negative side effects. Beardo oil is a superb oil. There are very few trans guys using it. We believe it might be helpful for you.
Now we would like to share a recent image. It's 2.3 years on testosterone.
What's the change? The previous image has no mustache or few mustaches. The mustaches become visible. The beard looks great. Both sides are now looking good. Both sides have a lot of beards.
Minoxidil also works great for FTM guys. Most of the trans guys shared their positive feedback. Though some trans guys and the trans community published some articles where they said It's toxic. Some of our trans friends have found minoxidil grateful for their beards. The only issue is pimples and acne.
The user experience is average. He said, " Minox is helpful for fast beard growth but my face has been facing some issues. Acne and pimples are almost on my face."
However, some trans guys still recommend beard oil to other trans guys. We recommend beardo oil. It is good and works more slowly than Minoxidil. But it might be difficult to get it. It's available in India or some other countries.
Beard Growth Advices:
