    I've heard a lot of people saying that puberty blockers are fully reversible, but since I may be starting on blockers very soon, I wanted to know if there are any studies about the subject. My parents are very sceptical, and say that it's experimental treatment.
    I just don't know what to believe, please point me in the right direction...

    Puberty blockers are only meant to slow/pause the puberty process, either before it happens or just as it begins to happen. They don't actually make you go thru the opposite puberty like HRT does. If you started blockers and then stopped taking them later without going on HRT, you would go through the puberty of your assigned gender at birth no problem. Here's a good link I found that explains how blockers work:
