What is transgender?

A person who was assigned one gender and who identifies a different gender. They may desire to assume the associated physical characteristics, and undergo hormone or surgical treatment for that purpose.

 

Difference from GD (Gender dysphoria)

Gender dysphoria is a term that describes a sense of unease that a person may have because of a mismatch between their biological sex and their gender identity. The term Gender Identity Disorder (GID) was used before since this condition used to be considered a mental disorder, but in recent years it has been understood as “gender diversity”. The American Psychiatric Association has dropped the word “disorder” and changed the name to Gender Dysphoria (GD).

 

The terms “transgender” and “gender identity disorder” are often confused, as people with gender dysphoria have a condition in which they desire gender congruence and wish to have surgery or treatment to bring them together, while some “transgender” people do not desire physical treatment, so transgender is a broader concept, encompassing gender dysphoria within it.

 

 

Medical Treatment:

[Counseling]

If you have gender dysphoria, we will first listen to you and give you advice on what you can do and where you can start.

We will diagnose and discuss gender dysphoria, hormone therapy, and possible surgery (referral will be made if surgery is desired).

If you wish to change your gender, we will advise you and assist you in preparing for gender reassignment surgery (SRS). Gender reassignment procedures are performed at the court.

 

[Gender Treatment]

Treatment includes hormonal therapy and gender-related surgery.

 

If, after careful consideration, you and your doctor decide that it is “better to proceed to physical treatment,” you can move on to the next step, that is hormonal replacement therapy.

If you wish to undergo physical treatment such as mastectomy or gender reassignment surgery, we will discuss with you and select a suitable clinic and refer you. In addition, those who have undergone “gender reassignment surgery” can apply to the family court to “change the sex on the family register.

 

[Hormonal Replacement Therapy]

At our clinic, we can administer FTM (Female to Male) and MTF (Male to Female) hormones to facilitate change from a female’s body into a male’s and a male’s body into a female’s, respectively. However, it is dangerous to administer hormones on one’s own judgment, as it may cause changes from the original healthy body, so please be sure to consult with us.
