Transgender people simply want to live as their authentic selves and unfortunately face many hurdles in society including access to affirming and safe health care.
There are trans men, trans women, and those who identify outside of the gender binary. Individuals may identify as agender, non-binary, genderqueer, something else, or nothing at all.
Transgender people are routinely discriminated against in many areas of their lives—health care included. More than one-quarter of trans people have been denied health care services because of their gender identity. M-Care believes that every person should have affirming health care, no matter their gender identity or expression.
M-Care offers gender-affirming hormone replacement therapy for transgender individuals of all ages. Our bioidentical hormone replacement therapy services include labs, medication, as well as ongoing monitoring, puberty blockers, and primary care.
For those people who want to take the steps needed to medically transition, our team will walk with you through every step of gender affirmation treatment.
M-Care co-owner Amanda has specialized training in hormone replacement therapy and is a member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health and the U.S. Professional Association for Transgender Health. M-Care is a member of the Wichita LGBT Health Coalition.
What does gender transition mean? According to transqeuality.org, this means different things to each trans person. For some people, this may include changing clothing, appearance, and name. For some, medical procedures or treatments including hormone replacement therapy, that help change physical characteristics are important. There isn’t one way to transition—all steps people take to reflect their true selves are valid.
Some ways in which a person can medically transition include:
Transgender health care is a passion for the M-Care team, and we passionately advocate for equity and affirmation in all aspects of health care.
