Was only able to read first few sentences because of paywall but it seems to indicate a change . Good news maybe?

And that doesn’t mean they used to be fully reversible either.

No longer considered.

It looks like it is not just in Ireland but following s change in the NHS? Can anyone read the whole article?

good I know a woman who has her daughter on puberty blockers. The child is the youngest of 6 girls. She decided to have one last try to have a boy. Turns out the child is trans, massive coincidence right?

The evidence of the child being trans is that she likes football & short hair. Dislikes dresses & sparkles. I’d also strongly suspect some autistic traits.

I should have said here in Ireland.

I think emails should be sent or phone calls made to everyone who has a child on them to ensure that they are aware of the new information.

I think mermaids and the tavistock etc should be made to tell every single client that the information they were previously given by them is no longer true and these are additional factors they need to consider.

All this quiet changing of info is actually incredibly sly. Its covering the arses of thise who know full well there are law suots heading their way whilst absolving them responsibility to patients currently on the pathway.

The Wikipedia page about hormone blockers still says it is totally reversible. Ugh.

Poor kid. The die was cast before they had a chance. However - 5 big sisters might break the spell...

This. 100%.

Imagine deciding to discontinue puberty blockers, rare though that is, and finding out that you've got all sorts of symptoms as a result of them, and the NHS hadn't told you as soon as they knew.

The tragedy is that they never were fully reversible.

The tragedy is that they never were fully reversible.

And people told them just to be shouted down.

So will all those people who were lied to be able to sue? Such a pity we don't have the class action lawsuits that they have in the US.

What about people who were advised to take these by Dr's - will the Dr's medical insurers pay out?

Hmmmmm. I remember watching a documentary about the thalidomide scandal and it took years and years before people got compensation (no apologies from memory).

This is just such a massive scandal waiting to explode.

MrsJamin Mon 10-Aug-20 22:49:35

It is a massive scandal and all the people and organisations involved will blame each other and not take any responsibility for ruining peoples' lives.
