Default taking estrogen

my mom got a hysterectomy like 5 years ago and has a ton of estrogen pills that she takes. would be safe if i took some once a month? would it help prevent me from going through puberty? i really don't want to become a man.

I wouldn’t recommend taking any hormone pills without a doctors prescription and advice. If you’re desperate to start transitioning now, I’d say talk with your parents, a doctor, and follow their advice and instructions.

I would not advice on taking any medication prescribed for someone else irrespective of what it's for. I'd say that for anyone for any medication.
In terms of what you want it for, does your mum know how you feel? Would you be able to ask to go to doctor for estrogen (or any other medications) for what you want to achieve?

No. Taking hormones, especially those who actively go against natural growth, is very dangerous, and can lead to many medical complications, up to and including cancer.

In addition, a fear of puberty and questioning of your gender is quite common at your age. Many people don't accept themselves until after puberty takes place, numerous studies and my own life experience have shown that. In addition, taking such an action at a relatively young age would ruin any chances of you having a natural, healthy, and fertile life. Simply put, I would heavily recommend you do not take the hormones, as they provide many dangers, and result in life-changing results that you can never take back in the future.

i'm already taking t-blockers, but those are prescribed and administered by a nurse. i can't take estrogen until i'm 18. i've always wanted to be a girl before and after i started puberty. i'd kill myself if i had to go through male puberty.

Definitely consult a doctor before you take any tablets. The pills your mum takes are probably not he right ones for your situation. It could be damaging to your body if you take the wrong thing.

Do not EVER take medicines prescribed for another person. That's dangerous.

You need to do what @Mars suggests. Also they usually put you on a hormone blocker first to stop your progression in puberty from becoming a man. If you took your moms estrogen about all it would do is make you start growing breasts and also could be very dangerous so don't do it. Like @Mars said tell your parents you want to transgender and go to a specialist in transgender.

I am gay and happy with that.
I love talking to people very open & willing to listen.
I am also glad to try help with questions or problems.
Hit me up for anything. I promise I don't bite.
