EXPECTATIONS FOR GENDER-AFFIRMING HORMONE THERAPY

Timeline

Initial Appointment

Consultation,bloodwork,and receipt of informed consent that details the pathway to GAHT.

Second Appointment

Once blood work returns and levels are safe, you can start GAHT. A clinician will teach you how to safely take your GAHT. We encourage you to bring a trusted support person so that they can learn how to safely administer your medication too. If you are still uncomfortable taking your medication alone, a clinician can continue to help you instead.

Additional Appointments

Appointments and associated lab work will occur at 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and then annually. Expect 5-6 visits your first year.

*It is incredibly important that you keep in touch with your clinician about your experience on hormones. Safety and communication are essential*
