Gender Affirming Hormone Therapy

Planned Parenthood of Michigan is proud to provide gender affirming hormone therapy (GAHT) to transgender, nonbinary, and gender expansive folks.

We now offer gender affirming hormone therapy via telehealth appointments. 

In-person appointments for gender affirming hormone therapy are available at these health centers:

Coming soon: We will begin offering gender affirming hormone therapy at the Jackson health center in 2023!

Gender affirming care goes far beyond just hormone therapy.

We are committed to providing high quality, reproductive and sexual health care — including abortion — to people of all genders, and to ensuring our patients are treated with compassion and respect.

Hormone therapy services

PPMI offers hormone therapy for transmasculine, transfeminine, nonbinary, and gender expansive people ages 18 years and older.

Depending on individual patient needs and unique health considerations, we can provide the following hormone care.

Feminizing hormone therapy

  • Testosterone-blocking medications: spironolactone, finasteride
  • Estradiol medications: injections, patches, pills (swallowed or dissolved under the tongue)
  • Progestin medications

Masculinizing hormone therapy

  • Testosterone medications: injections, gels
  • Scalp hair loss management: finasteride

“Microdosing” or intermediate dose hormones

INFORMED CONSENT

We use an informed consent model of care. This means that clinicians discuss the risks and benefits of hormone therapy with patients, and clinicians work with patients to determine the plan that is best tailored to their needs in the context of their medical conditions. Patients do not need a mental health referral to receive hormone care at PPMI.
