    This is not to advocate for or against Dr Powers.  A lot of what he is describing is from his care of over 1500 transgender patients and what he has done that is not necessarily in line with WPATH nor UCSF guidelines.  However, he does make some powerful arguments that may assist in getting your own physicians to consider alternatives to their care and tests they could be having performed.   The PPT and Video are both targeted to provides so get someone to help you interpret if you’re not up on some of the things he discusses.

    This is his webpage that has a download of the PPT  that is continually being revised that goes with the video.

    This is a Youtube of a lecture he gave in June ’19.  It’s 2 hours long so get some popcorn and a steno pad for all the notes you’ll want to take

      I watched his presentation and was totally impressed with his insights. I go for my 6 month followup on the 31st of march, at that point i am going to ask for a total switch of meds. No more spiroloctone, switching to bicautamide, as suggested by dr powers, injectable estrogen and will argue my case for a slightly more than max dose than WPATH recommends, and switch to gel cap progesterone for suppositories. My clinic is pretty progressive so I dont think it will be that hard a sell. If nothing else they will have a new guinnea pig for better treatment options. Thanks for posting the link, I know your not abdictating for it or against it. But after listening to it, and reading tons of other articles i think its well worth a try. Besides, they all promote breast developement and we all know how important that is.

      Thanks again

      Forgot I had posted this here.  I ended up making an article out of it at V’s suggestion.  https://transgenderheaven.com/is-your-physical-transition-languishing/

      Cloe, thank you for posting both links.  If nothing else, this was informative.  I got a lot of listening and reading what he had to say.  I may need to revisit them again.
