Getting Started

As with any treatment, you will need to provide health information and may need to undergo an examination before starting a new medical treatment. This can include:

  • review of any pre-existing health conditions
  • review of smoking status
  • height, weight and blood pressure checks
  • physical exam
  • routine blood tests.

More information on this will be provided to you prior to your first appointment. Readiness for hormones and readiness for surgery consultations will be provided as part of your care to make sure you have everything you need to get started.
