How long do most individuals stay on hormones?

All their lives. MTFs start by taking large doses of estrogens to counter act the continued attempt by the testicles to produce androgens. Once SRS or an orchiectomy is performed the dosage can be reduced drastically. Essentially post-op genetic males have the equivalent endocrinological system of a post-menopause genetic female. Staying on a low dose of estrogens has the same benefits for post-op MTFs as it does for post-menopausal genetic women.
