If you have decided on hormone therapy, then this is where the next step of your journey and adventure can begin. This clinic exclusively serves the transgender community for their transitional hormone needs. There is no worry about cisgender care overwhelming it because we don't serve them in any capacity! This is your clinic, and your place. Come check us out!
Hormone Therapy On Your Terms
No mental health letters, no gatekeeping. Informed consent means that you are educated on the risks/benefits of the process and decide for yourself if hormone therapy is for you.
Dosing/Regimens That Fit Your Goals
Whether you are desiring of full masculinization or feminization, or perhaps somewhere more neutral/agender/nonbinary/etc., we will work with you and tailor your medication to your physical goals.
Cost is usually a huge barrier for hormone therapy. Health insurance coverage hasn't yet caught up with what should be the standard of care in trans medicine. We offer a transparent fee system of $35/month to cover the visits you have throughout the year with your provider.
*Medication & Labs Are Separate Costs Discussed Elsewhere*
How To Get Started?
Click on the tab in the menu labeled "Appointments" and get started selecting your appt type and date/time. Then answer a few questions about yourself and your goals. In-Office and Telemedicine Video Chat visits are available depending on your needs.
What Do Labs & Medications Cost?
If you are covered by health insurance, there is a chance that you may have these covered to at least some degree by your policy. But if not, most hormone medications are fairly reasonably priced, especially when using coupon apps such as GoodRx. Average monthly price of hormone medicines is $15-$40.
We also have cash pay options for labs through Labcorp/Quest lab locations that average $75-$150 per panel/draw (price depends on what type of hormones you are on and where you are at in your treatment regimen).
Where Are We?
Our physical office is located at 709 Hardy Street in Hattiesburg, MS. It serves also as a trans safe space for trans centered events and also as a place available to stop by and hang out during in-office hours.
Who Are We? Why Do We Do This?
Stacie & Lee Pace are a wife and husband healthcare provider team. They started this clinic due to the lack of viable transitional options available to the trans community in Mississippi.
Why? They don't need a reason to do the right thing. That's something you just do. Trans rights are human rights. And this clinic will stand for the community it serves.
How Can You Help This Community?
Marsha's Tea Room is the nonprofit partner of Spectrum. It is a 501(c)3 tax exempt entity whose mission is to improve the health and welfare of the transgender community through healthcare and education. It seeks to carry on the fighting spirit of Marsha P Johnson's fiery activism for LGBTQ+ rights exhibited when she threw that brick during the Stonewall riots. It shares office space in our clinic and uses that space for trans centered projects as well as functioning as a trans safe space where people can come hang out in safety, be themselves, and not have to worry who is watching them go into the restroom.
