Do-it-yourself (DIY) is the self-administration of hormones without medical supervision.

Editor's Note: The discussion of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and it's medications is permitted on this site and in this Wiki, with the following limitations:

  • Advocating for or against a specific medication or combinations of medications for personal gain is strictly prohibited.
  • Discussing the means to acquire HRT medications without a prescription, and self medication without a doctors care is prohibited.
  • Discussing dosages is strongly discouraged to prevent information obtained on this site from being used to self medicate.

We can not in good conscience condone the self administering of these medications. Not only may self medication be illegal, but HRT medications can cause serious health problems, and many have the potential for life-threatening side effects that can only be detected and prevented with proper medical supervision.
