Do you have gender dysphoria?

Below is a list of questions that relate to life experiences common among people diagnosed with gender dysphoria—formerly known as gender identity disorder. Please read each question carefully and indicate whether you have experienced these thoughts or exhibited these behaviors for at least the past 6 months.

This quiz is NOT a diagnostic tool. Mental health disorders can only be diagnosed by a qualified/licensed mental health professional or doctor.

Psycom believes assessments can be a valuable first step toward getting treatment. All too often people stop short of seeking help out of fear their concerns aren't legitimate or severe enough to warrant professional intervention.

Do you feel your gender identity is at odds with your biological sex?
Do you dislike your genitals and secondary sex characteristics (e.g. facial hair or breasts) of your assigned gender?
Would you be happier if you had the primary or secondary sex characteristics of the opposite gender? For example, have you considered procedures to physically alter your sexual characteristics?
Do you have a desire to be of the other gender or some alternative gender different from your assigned gender?
Do you wish that the people in your life would treat you the same way they treat males (if your assigned gender is female) or females (if your assigned gender is male)?
Are you experiencing distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning given the disconnect you experience between your natural gender and your expressed/preferred gender?
