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.)
