I need to ask a question as a parent of a transgender teen (FtM)…how have other trans people found a good gynecologist?
My child is having terrible periods, each month worse than the one before, and they need to see a gyn. I didn’t realize what a triggering event a period was until the past few months, but I’m concerned because we have a family history of endometriosis. I’ve called around different offices, but the docs in this area seem to be woefully uneducated and unprepared for their transgender patients. I’ve asked various pflag groups, local and non, and I’m not getting anywhere. Does anyone have any advice or ideas?
I would appreciate any signal boosting from this post, if anyone’s willing…I’m so frustrated, and feeling helpless to help my kid.
