Hormones: A guide for MTFs

While there are some health risks involved with hormone therapy, it can have positive and important effects on trans people's quality of life. Knowing what you can expect will help you work with your health care providers to maximize the benefits and minimize the risks.

The purpose of this booklet is to:
  1. explain how hormones work
  2. describe the changes to expect from MTF hormones, and outline risks and possible side effects
  3. give you information about how to maximize the benefits and minimize the risks
Already sure you want to start hormones? The booklet Getting Hormones, available from the Transgender Health Program (see last page), explains the process.

This booklet is written specifically for people in the MTF spectrum who are considering taking hormones. It may also be a helpful resource for partners, family, and friends who are wondering how hormones work and what they do. For medical professionals who are involved in prescribing hormones or are looking after the health of someone who is taking hormones, there is a detailed set of guidelines for doctors and nurses available from the Transgender Health Program.
