Tavistock puberty blocker study published after nine years

The study began in 2011 and enrolled 44 children aged between 12 and 15 over the following three years. At the time, only those aged 16 and over were eligible for puberty blockers in the UK.


Thanks to Coline for forwarding this.  Essentially, what we have here (in my opinion) is the case of a sort-of positive study followed by a not-so-positive ruling by the UK High Court.  

Will we ever be understood?  I just hope and pray that the trans kids of the future never have to go through the anguish that I and so many other have had to go through.

Lawyers representing the claimants said there was "a very high likelihood" children who start taking hormone blockers will later begin taking cross-sex hormones, leading potentially to infertility and impaired sexual function.

  1. I am hopeful that more research will follow and that these can be used to make more informed decisions.
