Gender Affirming Hormone Therapy, also known as GAHT or HRT, may be part of your primary medical care with us to make physical body changes that support your gender. There are a few different kinds of medication or hormones that you might be prescribed, and different ways to take the hormones, as well as different doses for everyone.
Your medical provider (e.g. a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant) will work with you to understand your goals and needs before prescribing medication. We follow an informed consent model for gender affirming hormone therapy with people ages 18+. If someone is working with us who is under the age of 18, we will require a mental health assessment as well as parental or guardian consent.
