What age do you have to be to start HRT?

Hello! I've been wondering, what is the general age you have to be to start HRT? (T for me) I've googled it multiple times but I haven't been able to find any answers. I think I might have read that it's 15 in the US? But I don't know if it would be the same in Canada :confused:

    Hormone Replacement Therapy, right? - I'm personally not to sure, however, I read an article stating that under 14s, can't actually consent to HRT, whereas their parent and guardian can do, on their behalf in Canada? - I would assume Canada and the US would have similar rules along that line though, - Not sure if this artice is helpful at all? - http://santetranshealth.org/jemengage/en/guide-contents/cross-gender-hrt/

    Also the best apporach would be consulting your GP, who should hopefully be able to advise to futher on that scale. On another note, this is a UK based site, so most support offered, links, etc. Tend to be more UK based, however, we have members from all over the world, warm welcome to TheSite.org message boards :wave:
