Gender dysphoria

Gender-incongruent; Transgender; Transsexualism 

Gender dysphoria occurs when a person feels deep discomfort and distress about the gender they were born with because it does not match their gender identity. For example, a person who was physically born female instead feels a deep inner sense of being male. This mismatch causes severe discomfort, anxiety, and depression.
