Feminizing Hormone Therapy including estrogen and spironolactone
Masculinizing Hormone Therapy including testosterone
We may be able to start or continue hormone therapy and provide referrals for gender-qualified therapy and resources if needed. If you are on hormone therapy, you can utilize the health center for ongoing care and monitoring.
In order to receive gender affirming hormone therapy services you need to be over 18 (or 16-17 with parental consent) and capable of providing consent for services. There are special consents for these services.
In order to decrease the amount of time spent in the waiting room, please call to make an appointment first and request gender affirming hormone therapy.
In most cases your clinician will be able to prescribe hormones the same day. No letter from a mental health provider is required.
The receptionist may give you paperwork for the Family PACT Program (California locations only). Family PACT is a California state-funded program that provides some reproductive health services based on a person's sex assigned at birth. Eligibility for Family PACT is based on your self-reported income and family size, and your ability to become pregnant or cause a pregnancy. We ask that you fill out the Family PACT paperwork using your sex assigned at birth.
Family PACT may cover testing for sexually transmitted infections including HIV, and some parts of your physical exam if you are at risk for pregnancy or causing a pregnancy. You may still need a Pap if you are over 21 and still have a cervix.
All services are confidential (except in cases of abuse), so being open with the clinician will ensure that you are receiving the best health care. When you are called back to meet with the clinician you may be requested to provide a complete medical history, as well as a history of your sexuality and sexual practices in order for us to provide the best care.
You may consult with one of our clinicians and receive a physical assessment and lab testing as appropriate for monitoring hormones and your transition.
