This presentation will define and discuss the difference between sex assigned at birth, gender identity, and other terminology, and review the organ inventory. It will review how to be inclusive and affirming when obtaining components of a sexual history which will allow the clinician to understand the patient’s reproductive health needs and potential contraceptive options that may best meet those needs, and will review family planning and contraceptive options for LGBTQ+ patients, including those on and/or starting gender-affirming hormones.
