Hormone Therapy Might Relieve Sexual Distress in Transgender Individuals

Transgender people who undergo hormone therapy might see their levels of sexual distress decrease over time, suggests new research in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. 

The study investigated sexual distress in 301 transgender people who had not undergone gender-affirming surgery. 

In general, sexual distress was positively correlated with body uneasiness and dissatisfaction, as well as general psychopathology and social anxiety. 

A subset of 72 participants was followed for 24 months. Over time, sexual distress was reduced in this group.
