What are the psychological effects of menstruating while transitioning or experiencing gender dysphoria?

**WARNING: TW: body dysmorphia**
Our Answer
What our doctors say

Periods are reinforced in the media as ""a women's body's way of preparing itself for pregnancy,"" which is very dysphoric for people who are not a woman or who do not desire to become pregnant. Those who are transitioning or managing their gender dysphoria can struggle during the time of their period because it doesn’t match up with their true identity. Progesterone based contraceptives can be useful for people transitioning before they start or until they decide to go ahead with testosterone therapy (which will also often stop menses).

For more information, check out our Gender Inclusivity Period Talk guide, made in partnership with Schuyler Bailar!
