Self-reporting form template: Please read before posting

This self-reporting form must now be used to report your experience with any attempted treatments, including hormone therapies, diets, lifestyle changes, or any other substances. If you are interested in why we have implemented this change, please read our announcement post.

Posts not adhering to the reporting form will be removed and an automated message will be sent to use the form instead.

You can locate the form two ways:

  1. If you created your member story before the 11th of January 2022, you can copy and paste it from below. This post will also be pinned in the Member Stories category.
  2. If you created your member story after the 11th of January 2022, the form was automatically populated in your original post below the member story template.

To use the form, simply copy and paste it into a reply to your member story and fill in the details. Do not create new posts in the Member Stories category, or any other category, to use the form. Do not theorise as to why your attempted treatment may or may not have worked. Do not prescribe the treatment to others.

Please do not include multiple forms in the same reply. If you have experimented with multiple treatments at the same time, please create separate replies using the form for each. You may include some context around your attempted treatment(s), but please keep it brief.
