Cross-sex hormone use does not increase cardiovascular risk in young male-to-female transsexuals: a study of self-medication by healthy Thai cabaret dancers

menopausal women. Several clinical studies, including those reported by the Women Health Initiative (WHI) the Postmenopausal Estrogen/ Progestin Intervention (PEPI) Trial, Heart and estrogen/progestin replacement study follow-up (HER II), indicated harmful adverse effects of estrogen and progesterone and an association with cancer and cardiovascular risks [ 5 - 7 ]. Female hormones have also been used by male patients for various purposes including the use CSH in patients with aromatase insufficiency, prostate cancer, and MtF transsexuals [ 1 , 8 , 9 ]. While the use of
