Hormone therapy might reduce sexual distress in transgender people who have not had gender-affirming surgery, according to a recent study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
Until now, there was little research investigating sexual distress in transgender patients who had not had surgery.
The study had a cross-sectional component and a prospective component.
The cross-sectional component involved 301 transgender people (160 transwomen with an average age of 32 and 141 transmen with an average age of 28). None of the participants had undergone gender-affirming surgery.
