HELP

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.

"onder vleugels" (underwings)
Thea Tolsma, 2009, 45 x 45 cm rubber, onyx, gold
Miraculous objects are, the jewelry that Thea Tolsma designs. They are not made of metal or glass, but of rubber. And does the rubber inner tubes. Nothing to glamouros would say. Until you find one with your own eyes. A jewel of Tolsma makes people special. It has the appearance of a millstone collar from the seventeenth century. 
Tolsma cuts in the rubber until a unique form unfolds. Each form has its own character, each piece has its own story. Sometimes the geometric shapes, but mostly organic as in the plant kingdom. Occasionally she uses gemstones, crystal, gold and silver as an extra addition to the “black” material.

London-based architect and designer Daniel Widrig created a collection of 3D-printed wearable sculptures, one of which looks like a futuristic exoskeleton.
The collection, called Kinesis, feature sculptures that were created using 3D scanning technology. The collection explores the potential in creating customized and 3D-printed wearable products that fit and merge perfectly with the body of the wearer.
Widrig created his pieces by analyzing the 3D models and the points of the body where the products would be worn. In a post on Dezeen, Widrig stated that his pieces are designed to exaggerate those parts of the body…
The 3D-printed sculptures were made by Materialise, a Belgian 3D printing specialist.
