13 and Transgender! Change the legal age limit for top surgery and starting Testosterone

I'm 13 and I am biologically female but I'm psychologically male. FtM(female to male) teens in Britain have to wait till there 16 to start testosterone and then have to wait another year until they can have top surgery. It's Scientifically proven that teenage years is the most confusing and strangest years your going to have and it can also be the hardest time of your lives but for FtM teens it can be even harder because they have to live through high school without going through male puberty, except they have to go through what we would call a living hell 'female puberty'.
One thing that can really be hard for us is the fact we are constantly worrying about when we get our next period or how big our chest looks in that outfit and we're afraid that we don't sound masculine enough also if our hips and bum look too big. There are many problems that we face but one thing that is really annoying is that we can't go swimming without feeling dysphoric about not being able to take our tops off and it just makes us sad that we can't stop worrying about everything that go's on with our bodies. That's why I want to change the legal age limit to start testosterone and the age limit to get top and bottom surgery. I would like it to be legal at the age of 13!
