Do I have gender dysphoria?

According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder (DSM-5). Signs of gender dysphoria typically include at least two of the following:

  • A marked incongruence between one’s experienced/expressed gender and primary and/or secondary sex characteristics (or in young adolescents, the anticipated secondary sex characteristics)

  • A strong desire to be rid of one’s primary and/or secondary sex characteristics because of a marked incongruence with one’s experienced/expressed gender (or in young adolescents, a desire to prevent the development of the anticipated secondary sex characteristics)

  • A strong desire for the primary and/or secondary sex characteristics of the other gender

  • A strong desire to be of the other gender (or some alternative gender different from one’s assigned gender)

  • A strong desire to be treated as the other gender (or some alternative gender different from one’s assigned gender)

  • A strong conviction that one has the typical feelings and reactions of the other gender (or some alternative gender different from one’s assigned gender)

If you think you may have gender dysphoria it is recommended to seek professional support.
