The Royal Children’s Hospital Gender website, in the section titled ‘Puberty’ states:

Puberty blockers suppress the development of secondary sex characteristics and are used for adolescents in the early stages of pubertal development. As they are reversible in their effects, should an adolescent wish to stop taking them at any time, their biological puberty will resume.


New material on the NHS webpage accentuates the unknown: “Little is known about the long-term side effects of hormone [suppression] or puberty blockers in children with gender dysphoria.

I have emailed the RCH on two occasions and advised that their statement on puberty blockers is misleading. I have received no response.
