Authors: Liu YF, Wang F, Huang GY, Mao XG Abstract OBJECTIVE: To analyze the relationship between outcomes of hormone replacement therapy-frozen embryo transfer (HRT-FET) and serum estradiol and progesterone levels on the day of endometrial transformation and before transplantation. METHODS: Clinical datas of patients who underwent 426 cycles of FET were retrospectively analyzed and were divided into groups according to estradiol and progesterone levels. Differences in embryo implantation rate and clinical pregnancy rate were compared, and relationship between estradiol levels and outcome of transplantation was...

Abstract Background/AimTo evaluate and stratify early cardiovascular risk of transsexuals who underwent pharmacological and/or surgical gender reassignment. MethodsFifty‐six transsexuals were divided into two groups: group 1 – underwent gonadectomy (orchiectomy for transwomen and hystero‐annessiectomy for transmen); group 2 – hormone replacement therapy alone. All participants underwent carotid artery intima‐media thickness (C‐IMT) and flow‐mediated vasodilation (FMD) of brachial artery evaluations. ResultsFMD was lower in patients who had undergone gonadectomy compared with non‐surgically treated p...

ConclusionsMore than 50% in the total cohort had hormone replacement. Although adherence was generally good, this study shows that hormone replacement therapy may be improved. This may be achieved by better individualization of the treatment and by providing specific information to patients regarding both long term and short‐term hormonal effects and side effects.This article is protected by copyright.

This study examined the effect of growth hormone (GH) replacement therapy on diacron-reactive oxygen metabolites (d-ROMs) and endothelial function in Japanese patients with GHD, using peripheral arterial tonometry. This was an open-label, prospective, case-control study. Nine patients with GHD who had not previously received any GH replacement therapy were enrolled. The following parameters were evaluated at baseline (before treatment), and after 24 weeks of GH replacement therapy: endothelial function using the reactive hyperemia index (RHI; EndoPAT(®) system), d-ROMs, blood pressure, and fasting lipid levels. Plasma ...

Abstract Voices convey important social information about an individual's identity, including gender. This is especially relevant to transgender individuals, who cite voice alteration as a primary goal of the gender alignment process. Although the voice is a primary target of testosterone therapy among female-to-male (FTM) trans people, little research has explored the effects of such changes on their psychological well-being. Here, we investigated how FTMs' vocal gender related to their well-being. A total of 77 FTMs (M age = 25.45 years, SD = 6.77) provided voice samples and completed me...
