How to Get on Hormones

Taking hormones can be a huge part of starting transition, but how does one get HRT? In this episode we answer a listener question from Mia who asks "I want to get on hormones, but am having trouble figuring out how to get access to hormones? Who can I talk to about this?" 

If you are in the greater NYC area, check out Callen-Lorde Community Health Center. Planned Parenthood also provides HRT services among other important health care work. You can also search for transgender health care providers here.

Our first episode with Dr. HD of Hormones Demystfied has a lot of good info on HRT.

Check out the Center for Transgender Health which has a page on the Transgender Standards of Care.

(And a clarification regarding psychologists and prescriptions: in some states, psychologists can prescribe  medications. However, it's only for medications that treat psychiatric conditions, not HRT.)

Do You Miss Anything about Living as a Guy?

1.jpg

It's amazing to transition, but is everything always perfect afterward? This week we answer a listener question from Nora. She asks "Is there anything about being a cis male that you miss? Please don’t misconstrue this as 'do you regret transitioning?'  That question would be rude, inconsiderate, and non of my business. And it’s not a sociological question such as 'Don’t you wish women earned as much as men?'  I’m just wondering about day-to-day stuff  where there’s a (generalized) difference between the way women and men do things, or the way they act.

As we discuss in the episode, check out this article on Everyday Feminism about women's secondary status in public places.

Finding the will to get in shape can be tough, doubly so for transgender people who may be nervous about going to a gym with binary changing rooms. In this episode we answer a listener question from Bree who asks "Do you have any tips for going to the gym? Despite having been full-time for almost a year, I am terrified of going to they gym. My problem is I just don't know how to approach the gym and I am dragging my heels getting back in there because of it. Any advice?”
