    First, you ain't going anywhere if you don't have the support and consent of your parents.

    Next, you need to be evaluated by a gender therapist that specializes in trans kids (preferably).

    Then, if you are at least 14, you can be referred to an endocrinologist for hormones. At present there ar about 30 clinics around the country that treat transgender teens.

    If you need it a list of some gender therapists can be found here:

    Depends on your age, and where your are at puberty wise. Best course is to talk with a gender therapist first. Ideal results begin with puberty blockers shortly after puberty starts, and then hormone replacement around age 15.

    They'd first have to see a "gender therapist" to talk things through. They'd then have to get consent from their parents to start hormones (usually around the age of 12 depending on where you live). It's not worth it though as you're essentially skipping puberty (which is a perfectly normal part of life) and you will have to take the other hormones (testosterone FTM or estrogen MTF) for the rest of your life which sounds like a plan in the a$$. This is not to mention trans people willingly become infertile just to feel right

    none. you're a minor, you should be barred from getting such things. anyways, >95% of children accept their birth gender. and roughly 40% regret going on hormones or getting GRS surgeries.
