Preface

This booklet was written as a summary of current practice for the medical treatment of male-to-female transsexuals. It is not intended as a general introduction to the condition: for such an introduction your attention is drawn to the booklet "Transsexualism: A Primer".

This booklet was written as a general overview of current medical practice; it is not intended as a medical textbook. Much of the material was gathered from existing medical literature, supplemented by personal experiences of some of the contributors to this booklet. Contributors include transsexual women as well as a counsellor and electrologist.

Every effort has been made to ensure that this booklet is as complete and accurate as possible, but the publishers cannot accept liability for any errors or omissions.
