I heard that women have more nerve endings than men, I also heard a lot mtf's say that after starting hormones their skin became more sensitive. So I would assume then that estrogen (or possibly other hormones) cause you to grow more nerve endings, is this true? I couldn't find an answer to this but did hear someone say that it made existing nerve endings more sensitive. Have you heard much about this before?
Uh.. I have not of heard this. I’m pretty sure at this time it’s a medical impossibility for an adult to re grow nerve endings or grow new ones.
I think hrt does retune your senses. My skin is definitely more sensitive to the touch. I have also noticed my olfactory sense is keener.
