This one goes out to all my Trans peeps out there as well as anyone else that might be using or going to use this in the future/now.
Okay first off in case you don’t know what I’m talking about here’s a definition: Transgender hormone therapy is a form of hormone replacement therapy also called (HRT) were sex hormones and other hormonal medications are given to transgender or gender variant individuals for the purpose of more closely aligning their secondary sexual traits with their gender identity.
There are to basic types:
1. Feminizing – for Trans women or trans feminine people. Mostly consists of estrogens and anti-androgens.
2. Masculinizing – for Trans men or trans masculine people; consists of androgens.
This is all basic information and if your parent having run across this after finding out your child is in this category of life or your a trans individual who has ran across this I have good news! Hormone therapy for transgender individuals has been shown in medical literature to be safe, when supervised by a qualified medical professional.
