to legal hrt trannies Posted on May 25, 2023 by Anonymous how long was your wait time? >country >wait time from first application to hrt for me >usa >one month (informed consent)
>2 years, then another 1+2+3 months because he wanted me to quit diy first and for my levels to return to normal before prescribing anything and i was trying to argue and skirt the rules because i didn't want to
3 months (informed consent)
delayed because I let slip my fat ass father had a blood clot 7 years ago so I had to get retarded bloodwork to prove I won't die on estrogen
>4 years therapy
>hrt 19, still manmoding 5 years later
maybe if they wouldve given me hormones when i told them i was a tranny i would pass
>three years, then six months honmoding in public to prove my dedication before he would give me any hrt as if waiting three years wasn't enough
I told him to go fuck himself and started DIY instead. Dumb af, I should have just said yes and started DIY anyway, but I was in a really bad place mentally at that point. Got in line at another clinic all the way at the opposite end of the country, and two years later the woman there told me to stop DIY and gave me a prescription for 2mg oral instead. Which is kind of shit so I continued DIY, but at least I finally got my papers changed + the approval for orchie. Wish I'd just started DIY from day one instead of wasting three years waiting.Pretty sure the fact I showed up at the second appointment decently passing was a big reason they were so much more helpful.
I know what you mean. If I'd started when I first figured out (at 16) my transition still wouldn't have been perfect, but it would have been a hell of a lot better than repping for five years, then waiting three years for our retarded healthcare system before starting DIY.
USA, Georgia if it matters
Was able to get an appointment to be seen three days after I made it. Then it was just waiting to get blood work done and the results to come back before I could get my prescription filled
Took less than two weeks all together.
about 3 weeks, informed consent at college health center, after diy for a couple months
>1 month about from first appointment to hrt injected into me
okay, so I started through informed consent then did diy after until I could get hrt though insurance.
I did informed consent through plume. it took about a month after requesting an appointment to be seen, then got the prescription and meds the next day. so that took a month.
for hrt through insurance, I called my pcp in September of last year and said I had been on hrt for 11 months, and he referred me to an endo, who referred me to a gender therapist, who tested me for gender dysphoria, who gave me a letter for hrt, so then I saw my endo, then got my levels checked, then started hrt through them in december. it took 3 months.
obviously if I went to planned parenthood instead of plume I could have gotten hrt way quicker. but I was newly 18, scared to tell my gf, and looked awfully male. I was terrified to be seen in person.
tl;dr: 1 month for plume, 3 months for insurance.
oh, forgot location.
plume was in oklahoma, insurance was california (US for both, obv)
Uk. Would have been a 6 year wait due to being made to go to the back of the waiting list agter movong house
Luckily i circumvented this buy going private so took 18months
>HRT is OTC, I got a delivery in around one week from a pharmacy to my city (Cypro and Progy).
>Two months to get It paid by the goverment with informed consent.
>About 8 weeks. Informed Consent.
I should've DIYd during that time but was too retarded.
No progress for a year despite attempting to go private.
Then moved to a new city, GP provided the prescription themself within a couple of weeks.
It's a complete postcode lottery here.
I'm DIY but also applied for legal
>Applied 14 months ago to 2 hospitals
>still 600 days to go before Amsterdam UMC will even contact me
>ZMC (Zaandam) will take a couple more months
>started DIY 10 months ago and forever glad it exists
Pls go to de Vaart or Psytrans, VU is a joke.
Psytrans is full (picrel)
I'll try de vaart though, thanks! <3
I went to de vaart, took 2 years in total.
>2-3 weeks? informed consent at my university
might DIY if I can't get my doctor to switch to injections
nearest appt was 3wks
E same day
>6 years and waiting
its okay bc i transitioned myself during that but like, 6 years... yeesh. im so glad i found this place and some crazy anons warned me about this
Poland. A few months altogether, mostly because I had no feeling of urgency because I'd already been on DIY.
However changing my birth certificate has taken almost a year and a half so far.
I DIYed scretly ofc
>1 year of psychologic evaluations, 2 years of waiting. ended up going to a private clinic that opened in the meantime and got hrt in 3 months, i was 16 when i started waiting i am a hon
evaluated in one appointment
got script in the next appointment a month later
thank you informed consent
Like 5 months waitlist for therapy intake, 2 or 3 more until I actually started, and then about a year before I got diagnosed.
About 2 months extra before I was on the 'mones.
Granted I had to work through some stuff first, if I had wanted to I could probably have been on hrt in like a year instead of almost 2, most of which would have been waiting for queues to clear out
>Less than 24 hours(the only wait time was for the prescription to fill)
there is surprisingly an informed consent clinic here, but it's twice as expensive as going through public healthcare and I might as well just DIY if I'm doing that
May I know the process u went through to get HRT in Singapore?
Went to a polyclinic, asked them to refer me to a psychiatrist to because I have gender dysphoria. Chances are the doctor won't know what you're saying, so tell them you "feel like a woman in a man's body" or vice-versa if that's the case. Doesn't matter if it's how you feel you just need to be referred to the psych so you can get meds legally.
There's like 2 hospitals that have a gender clinic: CGH or NUH, so make sure they put you at one of those, don't go to IMH. If the doctor is cooperative, get an endocrinologist referral as well to speed things up (needs to be after psychiatrist). Get GD diagnosed at the psych, bring diagnosis to endo, get your pills or patches. No injections available through the system, so DIY if you want that shit.
or just go to the one informed consent clinic if you want it NOW, just know it'll cost 2x as much, but they'll also do blood tests with no questions if you DIY. Hell, you can also just DIY while waiting for the appointments in the public system, it'll be easier to get the GD diagnosis and the endos don't really give a shit, though they'll try to hondose you for 3 months incase you detrans.
>About 3 days(informed consent)
Have an appointment at an actual clinic soon and it was about a 3 month wait
It was some shitty clinic that didn't offer informed consent and decided I was too mentally unstable to get a prescription. When I turned 18 I left and made an appointment with somewhere that does informed consent and got the prescription say day as the appointment. I will never not be mad about that.
Literally had my prescription two weeks after finally admitting it to myself, it was super fast and easy
>immediately, got blockers before therapy then forged therapy letter
3mo, informed consent. i was told 9 initially, but mentioned my spouse was a patient at their clinic and they found a closer slot. it was also a 2mo wait for therapy which was enough time for me to realize i was trans and then not need therapy.
my therapist then changed practices but gave me her # so i could call when i needed a letter, then ghosted so it took another month to get that when i needed it. -.-
>I don't remember but probably a month or so
Made an appointment for Planned Parenthood
Had to wait 1 month
Tell them Im already diy
Walk home with script in hand
>3 years because i came out when i was underaged and my parents didn’t accept me. got to go to a suuuuper cool “gender therapist” who told me being trans isn’t real and that i’m just gay instead though
Knew I was trans at 6 or 7, tried to get HRT at 13, informed consent didn't really exist in my state until I was about 21 and I started immediately.
was a youngshit, went into therapy at 16 and at 6 months got a diagnosis. therapist tried to get me to socially transition before hrt, at which point he would refer me. i refused, around another 5 months later he caved and referred me. got perscribed about a month later.
mfw i could have started at 16
i'm looking at this thread and wondering why i didn't get to be born in the usa
They tried to give me an appointment like 4 months out initially, but I called like once a week to see if they had any cancelations and that worked on the 3rd week. Overall like 6 weeks from when I made my original appointment, I got my meds the day after.
On informed consent I got my pills within 6 hours of my conversation with my dr.
i've been going through a therapist & endo with my insurance so i can get insurance to cover surgeries, hair removal, and sperm storage. on paper endo doesn't have wait limit minus just being so busy. it took 5 months from initial referral for first appt, 2 months for sperm storage, and now another 2 months until i can actually see then again and start
in USA in Seattle
>1 month waiting time (sort of informed consent)
Maybe a month? Had to do some blood tests and a physical but I had it in under 30 days
Sweden, 2.5 years and still waiting. I DIY tho
