It’s easy to help patients with gender variance – here’s what you can do


'The medication for transgender care includes:' 'well-known oestrogen therapy used for treating female menopause (estradiol)' - we probably don't spend enough time doing this common thing well enough in primary care! 'injections that are given for women with endometriosis' - this would be under direction of secondary care 'anti-androgens used in contraceptives (cyproterone acetate)' - not first line COC 'testosterone replacement therapy used for the management of the male menopause.' - contraversial and poorly understood +- managed condition which I would get secondary care advice on.
