Brief Summary

Guidance on the effects and risks of hormone therapy for trans people.

Extract from Booklet

This publication available in booklet form has been produced by a team that includes doctors and trans people to help you understand and answer some of your questions about hormone treatment for trans people. 

This publication gives trans men (female to male individuals) and trans women (male to female individuals) straightforward information about the benefits of hormone therapy and the risks and side effects. Every individual is different, and guidance about hormone therapy should always be used flexibly in response to individual needs. 

If you are thinking about starting hormone therapy, you may find it helpful to share the information in this booklet with a spouse or partner or other family members.
