De-transitionists praise England’s NHS for decision to stop puberty blocker prescriptions: ‘common sense’

England’s National Health Service (NHS) said children with gender dysphoria will no longer be routinely prescribed puberty blockers as treatment, citing limited short- and long-term data on their effects.

The NHS said in a clinical policy report Published on Tuesday, it has “concluded that there is insufficient evidence to support safety or clinical efficacy [puberty-suppressing hormones] PSH for treatment to be routinely available at this time.”

The BBC reported that there are currently less than 100 young people in England who are prescribed puberty blockers by the NHS, and will continue to be able to receive treatment.

Puberty blockers should only be prescribed as part of research trials or in “exceptional circumstances”, according to the BBC.

A 2020 evidence review by England’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) found that “there was no statistically significant difference in gender dysphoria, mental health, body image, and psychosocial functioning in children and adolescents treated with GnRHa,” short for gonadotropin-releasing hormone analog, also known as puberty blockers.

NICE said nine observational studies were included in its evidence review.

Oli London, a transitioner who underwent more than 30 surgeries over 10 years, told “The Story” on Wednesday that the NHS’s decision was a “bit of common sense”.

“We have to realize that pushing hormones and puberty blockers and, you know, encouraging kids to change who they are, that’s not right. That’s not fair to kids,” he said. “Kids need to grow up and learn, see who they are without having this gender ideology pushed on them.”

AMERICANS oppose transgender surgery, anti-puberty blockers for minors: polls

Institute for Research in Public Religion published a poll in January found that 28% of Gen Z adults identify as LGBTQ compared to 16% of Millennials, 7% of Gen Xers, 4% of Baby Boomers and 4% of the silent generation

London argued that the growing number of adults who identify as transgender is a “phenomenon” that has occurred over the past few years.

“This is something that is being pushed in society. So, you know, in the United States, you have several school districts pushing transgender ideology in the classroom. Of course, you have apps like TikTok. [and] the algorithm that pushes transgender to a young audience. And, you know, kids just want to fit in. Kids just want to get that validation,” she said. “So if they see someone like Dylan Mulvaney getting traction, getting love for being transgender, kids want to do that too. Everyone wants to be loved. So I think this is a harmful trend.”

Mermaids, a UK based charity which supports transgender children and young people, described the NHS decision as “deeply disappointing” and a “further restriction on the support offered to trans children and young people”.

Chloe Cole, another transitioner who had a double mastectomy at age 15, told “America Reports” Wednesday about the side effects she still experiences. after taking puberty blockers.


“All the treatments I was on, I was on puberty blockers, I was on testosterone and eventually I had surgery, I’m still experiencing ill effects to this day and finally the blockers were. the gateway drug to the rest of my treatment,” he said.


“It was the first intervention. And, you know, there’s this idea that these blockers are reversible and that they just give you time to decide. But basically I was going through early menopause at 13 and it felt horrible to be there. I feeling like my only way forward was to transition.”
