HIV, Vaginal Sex and PrEP Initiation: What Should You Tell Your Patients or Clients?
TheBodyPro is an HIV-specialist site for medical professionals, but is written in pretty approachable language. They have a 2017 article here that includes:

『Note: No specific research has evaluated PrEP levels in vaginal or rectal tissue of transgender women or transgender men, so all recommendations are based on assumptions of relative equivalency of data from other populations.』

It also mentions that WHO guidelines (4 doses for anal, 7 doses for vaginal) are more up-to-date than CDC's (7 days and 20 days respectively)

For Transgender Women, PrEP Is Safe to Use With Estradiol as Feminizing Hormone Therapy, Study Says
Eight years after emtricitabine/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (Truvada) as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) was established as efficacious for preventing HIV, transgender women using estradiol as feminizing hormone therapy (FHT) can now feel assured that "PrEP does not affect hormones," as Akarin Hiransuthikul, M.D., with the Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Centre put it while presenting the results of iFACT at the 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands on July 23, 2018.

"As tenofovir blood levels were observed to decrease by 13%, this decrease is within range that brings protection from HIV infection, continued Hiransuthikul. He said that it remains unclear why FHT caused this decrease of tenofovir levels in the blood, and they are continuing to explore whether these levels also drop in other parts of the body that are important for preventing HIV acquisition, such as the rectal cavity.

These findings mark a crucial point in the history of PrEP delivery among trans women, as they offer clarity for health care providers, PrEP outreach campaigns, and trans women using estradiol as FHT who, respectively, have remained concerned over the years about prescribing, promoting, and using PrEP with FHT.
