How long do you have to be on hormones before surgery is allowed?

Hey everyone, my insurance states that you have to be on HRT for at least one year before they will cover surgery but with friends that I have seen that are trans have been on it much longer. What is the typical timeframe before a surgeon will consider surgery?

A lot of Doctors will make you wait a full year. I haven’t asked my doctor yet but I expect she will say something close to the same thing.

How long have you been on HRT?

I’ve been on HRT for about six months now. We just transitioned from the patch to the injection.

I’ve never heard of the patch, interesting!
