Cross-Gender Hormone Treatment for Gender Dysphoria

Presenter: Jennifer Burnett

Peninsula, on Fri May 13 at 2:30PM

For those who are considering (or have already started) medical treatment to transition to their true gender, there is much information, as well as a great deal of misinformation, available on the Internet regarding the hormones/medications that are commonly employed for this purpose. This often promotes confusion as to what is the best and safest medical approach to a gender transition. This class consists of a Power Point presentation followed by a Q & A session concerning of the different hormone protocols used (for both M2F and F2M), their risks, benefits and side effects. Ancillary testing and additional/adjunct medications will also be discussed. I will also provide resource information and websites where medical providers can gain further knowledge on the treatment of Gender Dysphoria.
