I had a shot of it 36 days ago for such an issue.
It’s a good time to talk about Lupron. 🔻THREAD🔻
It stops the pituitary gland from releasing GnRH, the substance that acts on the gonads and other tissues to cause them to produce (after a series of biofeedback chain reactions) estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
Except those hormones aren’t just for reproduction or sex characteristics. Both men and women have both estrogen and testosterone circulating in their bodies. It’s physiologically necessary for human health.
Every system in the body utilizes estrogen in one way or another.
The non-reproductive functions of “sex” hormones are still being actively discovered today. This is a VERY partial list.
Please research Lupron before you give it to your child. A mastectomy later will be a lot less damaging than destroying her bones now.
As an adult, he can choose estrogen therapy and surgery. He can’t know what it means for his heart to grow without testosterone.
Just please look into it before you buy into the magical thinking of attempting to “block” puberty.
Puberty is more than boobs and body hair.
