Hormone Level Checks

For people taking gender affirming hormones, we can check the level of hormones in your body to guide dosing changes in line with your feminization or masculinization goals and help ensure safety. We’ll screen a sample of your blood, and then you’ll speak with a health care provider who will go over your results, give you a recommendation for you and your provider to consider based on your goals. Your provider will also answer any questions you may have.

Hormone level checks are offered at all of our HIV and STI testing locations.
