Puberty Blockers

Puberty blockers, otherwise known as puberty inhibitors, hormones blockers or gonadotrophin-releasing hormone analogues, are a type of drug that can be used to stall the onset of puberty in adolescents by blocking hormones like testosterone and estrogen.

Puberty blockers are used to treat precocious puberty and to delay the onset of puberty in transgender children, allowing them more time to explore their gender identity without developing unwanted sex characteristics.
