It's been known for a while that the vast majority of kids who are given puberty blockers go ahead with transition as opposed to the 80% who desist without them, so, yes, starting puberty blockers pretty much guarantees eventual transition.

I feel like a lot of trans interventions suffer from sunk cost fallacy. No wonder regret seems to be rare. And studies don't take account of that.

Try searching on the title in quotes and / or the author's names. Sometimes you can zero in on another source that isn't paywalled, such as at the originating institution or on an author's site, or via some other type of free access. Not all paywalls are monopolies, though they might want us to think so.

I think the article is referencing hormones not puberty blockers right? I can probably access this later.
