Hopefully you got to join us for our Puberty Blocker live stream. We learned so much together! I didn’t realize there was a nasal GnRH agonist. If you missed the live stream you can catch the replay with your paid membership to QueerCME


We wanted to share all of our favorite puberty blocker resources with you here this week:


  1. Provider training rotation through Project Health. Project HEALTH offers students and post-graduates in the health care field an in-depth educational experience in transgender health care.
  2. Guidelines in youth gender affirming medical care:
    1. The Trifecta (must reads):
      1. UCSF Guidelines
      2. WPATH SOC8
      3. The Endocrine Society and Pediatric Endocrine Society
        1. Endocrine Treatment of Gender-Dysphoric/Gender-Incongruent Persons: An Endocrine Society* Clinical Practice Guideline
    2. The bonus points:
      1. American Academy of Pediatrics: Ensuring Comprehensive Care and Support for Transgender and Gender-Diverse Children and Adolescents
      2. Fenway: Medical Care of Gender Diverse Children and Adolescents
  3. The lecture that started it all for me!!!!! (Not really because my lived experience started my journey in this field, but this talk was one of my primary motivators to work with youth.)
    1. Dr. Olson-Kennedy (she/her) at Gender Odyssey in 2018. This talk is for both families and providers. This was one of the most useful and informative lectures in my career. Unfortunately, you can’t see the slides but you can hear and see Dr. Olson-Kennedy.
  4. Family educational resources:
    1. Seattle Children’s Puberty Blocker Handout
    2. Seattle Children’s Puberty Blockers Video
  5. Free provider e-consults through TransLine


These are some of my not to be missed resources that I lean on regularly in youth gender affirming medical care involving puberty blockers. Read our blog next week to learn about my favorite resources around hormones in adolescents!
