The NHS has quietly changed its trans guidance to reflect reality

“The effects of treatment with GnRH analogues are considered to be fully reversible”

That’s what the NHS used to say about hormone therapy for children. Then, last week, the guidance on the site was quietly changed to something very different.

“. . .Little is known about the long-term side effects of hormone or puberty blockers in children with gender dysphoria. . . .

Although the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) advises this is a physically reversible treatment if stopped, it is not known what the psychological effects may be.

It’s also not known whether hormone blockers affect the development of the teenage brain or children’s bones.”

Given that the NHS now says that hormone therapy for gender-variant children has unknown long-term effects on the physical and mental health of those children, why is the NHS still using such treatments on children?
