Appointments

I am wondering if I can get a test to see what blood type I am. I need to know as I am looking into being a kidney donor.

Schedule an appointment with your primary care provider to have that blood test.  .

How long from first appointment can a trans patient expect to wait before starting hrt? I know it it often a drawn out and stressful process, but it feels like every day that passes will make it more difficult to transition

At Corner Health Center a patient would schedule an initial appointment with a health care provider for a brief physical exam , assessment and blood tests.  This is usually scheduled within a week.  

Typically the return visit to start HRT is within a month.  

What is the wait time for an HRT appointment?

The initial visit to establish care at Corner health can usually happen within 1-2 weeks . At that appointment you have a physical exam and blood tests . 

Following that you schedule a follow up visit to begin HRT.  That is typically within 4-6 weeks . 

Hi, I was just sitting on the couch minding my business listening to music and playing my game, when all of a sudden I got this extremely weird feeling come through my body in waves, I was still fully conscious and could speak and move, but my heart was beating extremely quickly and I started shaking (as a nervous reaction). it would calm down then come back, and I also felt like I was going to puke, afterwards when I finally calmed down I was shivering uncontrollably even though I wasn't cold, Im scared it might've been something serious, after all it was a very unpleasant scary feeling that's difficult to describe. Any idea on what this might have been?

It is difficult to diagnose  based on the symptoms you describe. 

However, what you describe could have been a panic attack.  

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center to discuss further and rule out any other causes for the episode you describe .

Well I got my depo shot on the 8th of June then I was told to come back 12 weeks after I'm not sure of the date because I lost my card where the date was written . So if I go few days before the actual date would I be disturbing the process?

If your shot was on June 8th then your next shot is due between Aug 24th and Sept 7th.

We were having a protected sex and after he released fully inside the condom he took out and we saw there was little that was came out from the outer layer of condom and we properly saw is there a break in the condom but it was fine. This was happened in February. Then I got my periods on March 15th and after that I didn't get till June 15th I got a light bleeding for 2 days. Then later on July 9th I started bleeding heavily and had a bad cramps. And in August I started feeling dizziness and heavy breast. Am I pregnant?

It sounds like you are having irregular periods and some hormone symptoms.  Schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center to talk about it.  If you do not want to get pregnant you can also find out about a birth control method that his good for you.

If you got your period you can assume you are not pregnant.  

I you do not want to get pregnant please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center to find a type of contraception (birth control) that his right for you. 

when i was 15 i would overdose on diphenhydramine occasionally because of its "hallucinations". ived dosed 800 mg twice 500 mg once and 750 mg once. these higher doses not including the multiple times i've done 12.5 mg to 300 mg for heavy sedation and as a sleep-aid. all within the span of like 6 months. i did 800 mg back to back but i was so paranoid and confused i decided i had to stop for a little. did smaller doses more and more often 2 weeks after i did my highest doses. ran out for a month and got another bottle. continued with small doses and did 500 sometime in that time period. after a 2 week tolerance break i did my final dose 750 mg. the last of my pills and also a bad experience so i quit. i now know how bad this truly is, and i'm genuinely concerned for my future mental health. its been quite awhile and i still sometimes have hallucinations. is there anything i should prepare for / how can i improve my mental quality? is there anything that should be said? please get back to me.

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner to get a referral for a complete mental health evaluation and also to see if the high doses of diphenhydramine has had any effect on your physical health .

It is recommended you follow the instructions on the package and not take more than the Recommended daily  dose

I keep having pains in the lower right side of my abdomen. I don't think its my appendix though, the pain isn't bad enough for that and has come and gone for a long time. Its a very sharp pain. I don't have any idea what it could be though.

Much more information is needed to figure out what is causing your pain.  

Schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center for further evaluation of your pain.
