Planned Parenthood of Western Pennsylvania Offers Hormone Therapy for Trans and Nonbinary Patients

On Friday, Planned Parenthood of Western Pennsylvania announced an expansion of their transgender care to include hormone therapy for transgender and nonbinary individuals.

Patients can now receive testosterone hormone therapy or estrogen/antiandrogen therapy at any of their planning centers. Staff will offer informed consent-based, compassionate care that puts patients in control of their transition from start to finish.

Obtaining care at Planned Parenthood Western Pennsylvania is straightforward, patients must be 18 years or older and have the ability to give consent. There is no requirement for a therapist’s letter to begin hormone therapy at PPWP. Services are offered on a sliding scale of income levels and prescriptions can be sent to a preferred pharmacy.

More information about their services is available here.
