Congratulations on beginning gender-affirming hormone therapy!

Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho is dedicated to ensuring you have the support and resources you need during your transition.

If you are on this webpage, you have been prescribed a medication that is administered through self-injection. There are several different medications administered through self-injection, including testosterone cypionate, estradiol cypionate, testosterone valerate, and estradiol valerate. Your clinician should have spoken with you in depth about your options to select the right one for you, but be sure to contact them if you have any unanswered questions.
