MYTH: Hormone blockers, used to delay puberty in transgender teens, are detrimental to one's health.
FACT: Hormone blockers are a safe way to "buy time" as the transgender teen decides whether to go on cross-hormones. This treatment prevents the (often traumatic) development of secondary sex characteristics that do not match the person's gender identity. It also prevents the need for painful and expensive surgeries to undo these changes later in life. This treatment is widely endorsed by family doctors, endocrinologists, psychologists, and other specialists involved in transgender health programs.
