Anti-Androgen

Anti-Androgen

(noun)

Commonly referred to as “T Blockers,” anti-androgens are a kind of medicine commonly used to inhibit testosterone production during hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for transgender people. Since testosterone is a more dominant hormone than estrogen, anti-androgens are generally required the majority of the time if the testes are still intact so that estrogen can work appropriately.

e.g. Nova was prescribed anti-androgens because her current hormone regimen of estrogen alone was not giving her the results she wanted.
