Desisting from gender dysphoria after 1,5 years of puberty suppression

Author(s): Angela Rolver*

Background: Over the last decade medical care for transgender youth has improved. Gonadotropin-Releasing-Hormone-Analogues (GnRHa) stop and delay puberty and can relieve the distress of Gender Dysphoria (GD). Only a few adolescents treated with GnRHa desist from GD, thus systematic and in-depth investigations are missing. Case Presentation: A case of peri pubertal onset gender dysphoria (12;4 years) is presented. It illustrates the desistance from GD after a 15-month-treatment with GnRHa. The blocking of puberty lead to a reduction of GD, the process of gender identity development still continued, leading to a non-binary outcome.
