Abstract (300 words maximum)

Background: A large majority of the transgender male population experiences unequal healthcare especially in gynecological care. Purpose: The purpose of this study is to answer the question: In transgender men, how does gynecological healthcare compared with cisgender women’s gynecological care affect the outcome of the transgender man’s health? This presentation will discuss the differences in gynecological care for transgender men as compared to cisgender women. Methods: Data was collected using scholarly articles and past studies to support the research. Results: In comparison to cisgender women’s gynecological care, transgender men receive unequal care and less care overall. The lack of care in this population can lead to an increase in rates of HIV, HPV, and cervical cancer due to a lack of screenings. Conclusion: Conclusions will include causes for the differences in care and suggestions for solutions. Overall, the research suggests that the most necessary improvement is proper education for gynecological care providers regarding inclusive care for transgender men.
