Transgender Health

Here at the UNT Student Health and Wellness Center we believe every student has the right to be treated in a respectful and confidential atmosphere. We understand that while many concerns are universal, like relationships, school, work and dating, some concerns are unique to you and your situation. We encourage open communication between patient and healthcare provider.

The SHWC is striving to provide our transgender students with quality healthcare in a safe, friendly and non-discriminating environment. Cynthia Hermann, MD is an OB/GYN who has worked with our transgender population since her arrival in 2011. She can assist in hormone therapy once initiated by your primary physician or hormone specialist. This assistance could include hormone injections , monitoring your labs and following your overall healthcare needs. Dr. Hermann can provide education on MTF (male to female) and FTM (female to male) related issues, as well as provide valuable information about local resources available to start you on your journey.

Labs can be drawn here with an order from your outside physician. Hormone replacement medication is covered under the United Health Resource Student Insurance. Check with our Pharmacy about ordering your hormone replacement medications.
