Helena identified as trans from the ages of 15 to 19. She was on testosterone for 17 months before realizing she'd made a huge mistake. She and Bridget have a frank and compassionate conversation about her journey, how body image issues and social media led her to identify as trans, the ease with which she was presribed testosterone, her parents' reaction to her transition, what led her to the realization that she was not trans, and the response she received from her community when she detransitioned. She shares her own story to raise awareness of a growing problem among girls and young women who are not being given adequate information or tools before they are given access to treatments and surgeries that can change their lives forever.
