How is HRT For Trans Men Different from Trans Women?

Updated: 24 hours ago

HRT For Trans Men & Women?

Choosing to undergo a female to male transition or a male to female transition is an important decision for many of our patients. If you’re considering transgender hormone therapy, experienced double board-certified physician Dr. Raj Singh at HEALOR Primary Care works with the LGBTQ community regularly to help them start their gender affirmation journey.

Gender dysphoria is a sense that someone’s identity doesn’t match their biological sex, which can lead to depression and anxiety. Many patients with gender dysphoria choose to transition to their preferred gender. During a consultation in Las Vegas, NV, men and women can learn if they’re candidates for transgender hormone therapy, a type of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). We can discuss estrogen pills or testosterone injections with patients interested in HRT.

What is HRT?

Transgender hormone replacement therapy involves administering different hormones to help Las Vegas patients acquire the look of their preferred gender. At HEALOR Primary Care, Dr. Singh offers a safe space for patients receiving this therapy. Treatment varies from patient to patient. A transgender man may need testosterone, and a transgender female may need estrogen. We administer hormones in pill form, with topical creams, or by injection.
