6 Symptoms Of Gender Identity Disorder

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Pune
6 Symptoms Of Gender Identity Disorder

Born as a male but feel like a female OR born as a female but feel like a male. Some persons are unable to feel comfortable in the physical gender that they are born in; their mind, brain, feeling and thoughts are all of the opposite sex. This uncomfortableness in their mind about their physical gender is termed as Gender Identity Disorder.

What's the cause?

We do not know the exact cause of this disorder, but it is hypothesized that developmental changes in the brain and the body do not sync, and the brain/mind is left with a different gender than the body. This is mostly an unidentifiable and unpredictable change.

What are the symptoms?

1. Children might express a desire to dress up as the opposite sex.
2. They might express replusion at one's own sex organs/genitals.
3. As adolescence begins, they do not develop feelings of attraction towards members of the opposite sex. Some complain of revulsion about their pubertal changes.
4. Males want to pee while sitting down, while females want to do it standing up.
5. Their behavior is often more like that of the opposite sex, e.g. boys might display feminine gestures, while girls might indulge in risk taking and reckless behavior.
6. As they become adult, a realisation that they are stuck in a body that they do not like causes depression and anxiety.

Diagnosis:

A diagnosis of Gender Identity Disorder (GID) is made based on a detailed assessment by a Psychiatrist, who is specially trained in this assessment. WPATH standards mandate that this is an ongoing assessment, and involves facilitating the process of Hormonal Treatment and eventual Sex Reassignment Surgery. The whole process can take 2-3 years.

Treatment:

For those who have severe GID, eventual sex reassignment surgery is the treatment and outcome. However, support of family, friends and a Good Psychiatrist can enable a smooth transition. Psychiatrists will often use antidepressants and anxiolytics to make it easier for the person to cope with societal and family pressures. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi Sir, My cousin is facing problem of hallucination, but she is not understanding when I am explaining her about that.
Hi, you need to realise that when a patient undergoes such experiences, it feels very real for them and they may find it difficult to look at situations in other way. Hence they appear stubborn or difficult to handle. Do note that waiting for the symptoms to subside by itself may not be the best way to deal with the condition. Take him to the nearest psychiatrist or mental health professional and let a proper diagnosis be made and appropriate treatment by suggested. Do not fall prey to layman advises and delay his treatment.

Dear lybrate-user, Do make a visit to a local psychiatrist. There are different ways to help you including counselling and taking medicines - let a expert see you in person and assess so as to lay out the options for you. Remember, medicines are the quickest and most effective option available and you would be able to sail through your exam if anxiety is the only issue that you believe is the hurdle. However let the psychiatrist assess you properly to give you proper guidance. Once you feel better with the medicines, do go ahead with counselling and lifestyle modification to ensure that the gains of the medicines stay with you even when you taper off the medicines. Hope this helps.

Hi lybrate-user. You are stuck with a dilemma that affects many in your situation. Remember that fever can get better without any intervention, the body over a period of time will recover. So do we wait? Similarly depression and anxiety to can recover over a period of time, but it may cause lot of distress and handicap us during the time taken to get better. So if you can take medicines to get better and use you natural techniques to stay better - that would be the ideal situation, But for mild conditions, medicines may not be required. So for your queries - 1. Not, lifelong medicines are not required, provided you do continue with the natural remedies mentioned by you. 2. Cure possible, but this would be decided by the severity of your symptoms and the distress that is present. 3. Exercise ensures that you are better placed to reduce the chances of recurrence and if it were to still come about, it could be of lesser severity.

Sympathetic hyperactivity occurs when you feel anxious and this often leads to the tremblimg, palpitations and head heaviness. Seeking help from a professional if self help tips don't help would be important and useful. Self help in form of sleeping well, eating healthy, exercises and regular interaction with friends and relatives would be useful.
