The administration of cyproterone acetate (CPA) and estradiol is a common regimen used by male-to-female transsexuals (transwoman) to adjust their body to their gender identity. Major adverse events are uncommon in these subjects in spite of long-term, high dose cross-sex steroid treatments. We describe the occurrence of a meningioma in a transwoman treated with estrogens and CPA over a period of nine years. The meningioma was revealed during a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan performed as follow-up of a previous surgery for ganglioglioma...

This study examined reactions to transgender people in public restrooms. Participants (n = 158) completed measures of essentialism and trait aggression and read scenarios where they imagined sharing a restroom with a transwoman or a transman. Participants indicated which restroom targets should use and rated potential negative reactions. Results indicate that targets were assigned to restrooms corresponding to birth sex rather than chosen identity. Women's reactions to transgender women were more negative than men's; men were more negative in reactions toward transmen...

WHAT IS KNOWN ON THE SUBJECT?: The experiences of transgender people are becoming increasingly more visible in popular culture, biographical literature and the media. The topic has received little attention within the psychiatric and mental health nursing literature. There is a paucity of literature exploring the impact on relationships following a disclosure of transgenderism. WHAT DOES THIS PAPER ADD TO EXISTING KNOWLEDGE?: A narrative account of the consequences for the wife of one transwoman and their relationships with friends and family following the disclosure of transgenderism...

BACKGROUND: Visible, anogenital warts may be associated with risk factors for HIV infection. This cross-sectional study examined the factors associated with visible anogenital warts among HIV-uninfected Peruvian men who have sex with men (MSM) and transwomen. METHODS: Six hundred HIV-uninfected MSM and transwomen were recruited from a community-based setting in metropolitan Lima, Peru, through outreach activities. Participants were tested for syphilis, completed a behavioral questionnaire, and were examined for visible anogenital warts...
April 2015: Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Heidi M Levitt, Maria R Ippolito
This article is based on a grounded theory analysis of interviews with transgender-identified people from different regions of the United States. Participants held a variety of gender identities under the transgender rubric (e.g., crossdresser, transman, transwoman, butch lesbian). Interviews explored the participants' experiences in arriving at their gender identity. This article presents three clusters of findings related to the common processes of transgender identity development. This process was made possible by accessibility of transgender narratives that injected hope into what was a childhood replete with criticism and scrutiny...

INTRODUCTION: There is a dearth of studies to quantify the use of illicit fillers by transwomen. Case studies of illicit filler injections have pointed to an array of serious health complications, including death. AIMS: The aims of this study were to determine the population prevalence and identify correlates of filler use among transwomen in San Francisco, CA. METHODS: An analysis of data collected in 2013 with a population-based sample of 233 transwomen recruited using respondent-driven sampling (RDS)...

Discordance between sexual identity and sexual behavior is not new; however, little is known about the HIV risk behaviors of heterosexually identified men who have occasional sex with a male and/or a male-to-female transgender woman. Open-ended qualitative interviews were conducted with 31 heterosexually identified men who reported at least one sexual encounter with a male and/or a transwoman in the previous 12 months. Sixty-one percent were African American/Black, the mean age was 38.9 years (SD = 8.4), 58...

This article extends research on transgenderism by providing a sociological study of men who are sexually interested in transwomen (MSTW; viz., genetic males who use estrogen to feminize their body but retain their penis). We conducted fieldwork in a bar catering to transwomen and the men who were sexually interested in them, and did on-the-spot interviews with the MSTW. We initially examined the nature of MSTW's sexual attraction to transwomen, followed by how this related to their sexual orientation identity...
