hormone blockers

also known as puberty blockers, these help delay unwanted physical changes that occur during puberty, in order to give transgender and gender non-conforming individuals either more time to navigate their gender identity, or, in combination with other hormone therapies, to allow puberty to develop more aligned with their perceived gender.

In TGNC adults, these help prevent the continuous production of testosterone or estrogen whilst on hormone therapy to align their gender identity.
