Endocrine Treatment of Transsexual Persons – A Patient’s Guide

In 1923, the term transsexual was first used to describe persons who felt profound discomfort with their biological sex. Today, medical treatment, sometimes together with surgery, allows transsexual persons to make a male-to-female (MTF) or female-to-male (FTM) transition and to live a gender-appropriate life.

This is the patient guide that was released at the same time as the “Endocrine Treatment
of Transsexual Persons”.
