Session Date: 
Saturday, March 25, 2023 - 04:40

People who are trans or non-binary experience the same health problems as other patients and have very few differing needs. However, it is helpful to be aware of the effects of feminising and masculinising hormones on the body and how this may alter our approach to provision of general healthcare across the lifespan.

Topics covered include:

  • fertility and parenthood
  • cardiovascular risks
  • ageing bodies
  • common concerns post genital gender affirmation surgery
  • approach to genital symptoms
  • sexual health screens
  • cancer screening.
