Planned Parenthood California Central Coast is proud to provide quality, compassionate care to transgender, intersex, non-binary, and gender non-confirming patients. We are committed to improving the way transgender people receive health care in our community, including eliminating barriers to that care.

We offer hormone therapy for patients 16 years and older at all our 6 health centers. Patients do not need to participate in therapy or provide information from a mental health provider to receive care with us.

Parental or guardian consent is required for patients 16 and 17 years of age. This is mandated by the state of California and a standard of care for gender affirming hormone therapy. Both parents, if applicable, will be required to sign consent forms and appear in person at the initial patient visit with their teen. If only one parent or guardian is the sole decision maker for their teen, their consent will be sufficient and required.

Parents will not need to attend follow-up visits. Additionally, future patient visits may be conducted via telehealth.
