At Planned Parenthood, we believe everyone deserves access to high-quality, non-judgmental health care. No matter who you are, who you love, or how you identify, we’re here to meet your health care needs.
Planned Parenthood health centers work to provide the best possible care while ensuring that every person who comes through our doors feels welcome, comfortable, and cared for — no matter what. At the New Orleans Health Center, we provide inclusive sexual and reproductive health services for LGBTQIA+ patients.
Our New Orleans health center has expanded current health care services to include gender-affirming hormone therapy (GAHT) for transgender patients (ages 18+). GAHT is one way for transgender individuals to feel and look more like the gender with which they identify. GAHT is a component of a medical transition which is used to change the body’s endocrine system to more closely match the person’s gender identity. Gender-affirming hormone therapy services include estrogen, spironolactone, and testosterone.
Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast follows an informed consent treatment model, which means our patients will not be required to provide an approval letter from a therapist to begin GAHT.
If you are eligible, Planned Parenthood staff may be able to start GAHT as early as the first visit. If you are already on hormone therapy, you can utilize the health center for ongoing care and monitoring.
Here’s what you need to know about services for LGBTQ clients at this health center:
Planned Parenthood is dedicated to making health care accessible and welcoming to everyone who needs it. Unfortunately, the online scheduling system currently offers limited options for gender and gender identity. We are working with our online scheduling system vendor to expand these options. Thank you for your patience as we work towards a more inclusive solution.
Payment is expected at time of service unless other arrangements have previously been made.
