DIYHRT.Market is a community-driven project to provide accurate and up-to-date information to the trans DIY community about sourcing of hormones. In our view DIY is an unfortunate but inevitable consequence of a transphobic medical system that does not trust trans people know who they are. We do not aim to give advice or opinions about how to use these medications, only the best possible information on sourcing while occassionally sign posting useful information or studies that may not be well circulated so that you can make well informed decisions about your own body.

We would strongly recommend making sure that you are at least reasonably well informed on the first principles of the endocrinology at play and the effects, risks and method of action of any medication before taking it. While HRT is on the whole quite safe there is a great deal of misinformation floating around the internet. Most of it is benign, but even benign misinformation can lead to months or years of dissapointment and unnecessary side effects which in a community so heavily afflicted with poor mental health can lead to bad outcomes.

Be informed, stay safe, and go live your best life without shame. You are trans enough and you deserve it. 💜
