Gender Dysphoria

Gender Dysphoria is an important part of undergoing gender reassignment surgery. It is the kind of discomfort that an individual experiences when their gender is different as compared to what they already have. In simple terms, it is the concern regarding the physical characteristics. 

Such feeling is experienced in transgender and those who are not confirmed about their gender. In many cases, there is no need for physical evaluation but at times it is needed. Through this evaluation, a person’s discomfort is addressed as compared to identity. It is about giving them an effective treatment plan to make them feel better about their condition. 

Symptom of gender dysphoria 

  • A person feels the desire that it is better to have secondary characteristics
  • A person feels the desire to be another gender than what they are
  • An individual desires to be treated differently just the way another gender is treated

Before the doctor proceeds with the gender change surgery, this is evaluated to better understand whether the person is ready to undergo such a huge change or not. 

It is noticed that a person starts having such feelings in their childhood and then it continues even in their adulthood phase.
