    So I have gynecomastia and I just got told I can't get surgery through NHS. So I did some research and it seems oestrogen blockers help but I don't know if they are legal. And I if go and speak to my gp and talk about oestrogen blockers will he prescribe them because I don't know where to get the genuine thing?(ofcourse I'll go to the gp if they are legal).
    Thank you

    There's nothing to stop you going to your GP and discussing it with them. I very much doubt they will prescribe you anything though, oestrogen blockers aren't for use with gynecomastia, they have significant side effects and are only really used as part of the treatment of certain breast cancers.
