I’m trans but only came out as an older person. Like many of us, I see a lot of hatred towards anyone who is favourable about gender affirming care for young trans people, and lots of claims by transphobes about the supposedly negative effects of puberty blockers on young people’s physical and mental health. I see far less of what that journey is like from young trans people, their supportive families or from trans health care professionals, and I would like to learn about this. For example, for someone on puberty blockers during early teens, how does that affect establishing romantic relationships, or feelings towards potential romantic partners? Do they miss out on those? What are the effects (or none) afterwards in terms of relationships, as well as the physical effects?
Maybe someone can point me to online articles, stories, studies or books that show the experiences of living on blockers for a few years, and how that worked out – the positives and the negatives
