How old do I have to be to use the service?

The WPATH standards of care recommend that puberty blocker treatment be started from Tanner stage 2. This is typically around 11, and tends to start earlier in people assigned female at birth, but it is different for everyone. Gender-affirming hormones (HRT) can be used following blocking treatment to induce the 'correct' puberty, but again, the appropriate age for this will vary. If you're in doubt, we can talk to you about when would be best to start treatment.

There is no upper age to limit to using the service. Age is not a barrier to accessing hormone replacement therapy and our team will ensure that the best treatment plan is arranged for you based on your medical background and the information that you provide for us.
