Not all trans and non-binary people wish to have hormone therapy and many live very comfortable lives without them. Nonetheless there are a significant number of trans and non-binary people who do wish to take hormones in order to make physical changes to their bodies so they are more in line with their felt sense of themselves. We generally recommend hormones after a person has made a formal and established gender role change.
Expectations of hormones are discussed when you are assessed. As hormone therapy causes infertility, it is really important to consider storing gametes (eggs or sperm) before taking hormones.
