Hormone Therapy for the Treatment of Gender DysphoriaMay 19, 2014
Continuous feminizing or masculinizing hormone therapy is administered to some adolescents and adults who have a diagnosis of gender identity disorder (GID) or gender dysphoria (GD). The purpose of this therapy is to facilitate a transgender individual’s desire to transition to a sexual identity other than his or her biological (natal) sex. Some individuals undergo hormone therapy as a prelude to sex reassignment surgery; other individuals seeking gender transition undergo hormone therapy without ever undergoing any type of surgery.
