Execellent post Kit
You might have the impression that accessing Puberty Blockers is prohibitively expensive. You may have heard that they are unfairly withheld from children, and how they should be subsidised by the government.
For this post, I have relied on data published by TransHub, which is an informational website owned and operated by ACON.
TransHub is the place trans people, children and parents go for their data about transitioning.
The Cost of Blocking Puberty
TransHub advise that there are 3 types of puberty blockers, and that these are prohibitively expensive. Goserelin, Leuprorelin and Triptorelin are each medications that are taken periodically 3-5 times per year.
These drugs are subsidised for conditions such as – endometriosis, chemical castration, prostate cnacer – and are limited for short treatment periods only.
Doctors can prescribe “off label” so the consumer can buy them, but will not receive a subsidy…
