More Details on Puberty Blockers
Children who experience gender dysphoria may turn to medical intervention such as puberty-suppressing drugs to assist in delaying the physical changes of puberty, often as a first step in fully transitioning down the line. The top puberty blocking drugs on the market include:
Emerging research has raised potential red flags regarding the safety and efficacy of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists, commonly known as puberty blockers. According to recent reports, the ramifications of using these drugs at a young age are unknown at this time, but some of the potential health consequences presented by puberty blockers may include low bone density and adverse psychological effects, among others. According to a recent NBC report, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration added a warning to puberty blockers in July 2022 after discovering “a plausible association between GnRH agonist use and pseudotumor cerebri." Pseudotumor cerebri, also known as idiopathic intracranial hypertension, occurs when the pressure inside the skull spontaneously increases—which can cause brain swelling, severe headaches, nausea, double vision, and even permanent vision loss.
If your child has taken puberty blockers and you believe their health has been adversely affected, contact an attorney to discuss your rights.
