Fertility Issues for Youth: Puberty Blockers, Hormones and Decision-Making Through the Lens of Family Building Options

A workshop session by Evelyn Mok-Lin MD

This workshop will explore current and future options for transgender youth making choices about puberty blockers and hormone replacement therapy. We focus on the process of making decisions about the timing of medical interventions from the perspective of future fertility, considering the viewpoints of both youth and parents or guardians who will be giving legal consent for interventions. A schema will be presented for understanding current and future fertility options for persons with ovaries and testes, with or without puberty blockers and hormones. We will look at the psychological necessity but developmental disruptions in presenting this information to pre- or early adolescent patients considering either blockers or hormone treatments, information that leads to significant decision-making regarding their child’s future life as a potential parent.
