Thank y'all for this thread. My 14-year-old son is trans and we live in a conservative state so I haven't even taken him to a doctor yet for hormones or anything. He was born a female and is well-endowed (wears a binder but it's still kinda obvious). We're in a state that borders Oregon though, so maybe we'll head that way. Thanks again.

Had anyone who gets HRT through Planned Parenthood been able to travel to different PP clinics in different states and still be “in the system” such that it’s a short checkup to get a new script?

I’ve never been to PP so I don’t know how it works. So if someone could also explain that I’d appreciate it.

theyre all managed by like different regional groups, kinda like franchises. ive always had to start over at different pp's, but its incredibly simple and quick. i get a script at the initial appointment. just tell them youre already on hrt and have been prescribed at another pp clinic.

however, maybe you already know this, but not every pp does hrt. so make sure ahead of time the clinic you wanna go to has an hrt/trans health program so you can plan accordingly.

Hm. Follow up, related somewhat, do you know methods for getting hormones with little or exactly no money and no insurance? Are there any groups in the US that enable this?
hmmm i think maybe st james infirmary in sf buit im not sure that they actually can pay for your scripts. they primarily focus on sex workers but i think will help any trans people that come in. is there a reason you cant get on medicaid? what state are you in? have you tried fenway in boston? the only way i know how to get them without insurance is to buy online on the grey web. thats how i get my injectable p. but without insurance or money i dunno how many options there are. but with medicaid ive never paid more than a dollar for a vial of e.

I'm currently on insurance so this isn't a right now issue as much as it could be an issue and as someone who's post op, staying on hormones is important for a broader range of functioning.

I know Fenway and I think they do provide free care if you can't afford it.
