“Transsexual experiences cause them chronic stress associated with higher prevalence of HIV infection, substance use disorders and suicidal tendencies”, according to a recent article published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. It also affirms that “obstetrician-gynecologists should educate themselves on transgender-specific terminology, gender-affirming medical interventions, preventive health and cancer screening, and counseling for reproductive health and fertility.”
The bioethical question is whether these people would choose to assume their biological sex and overcome the gender dysphoria. Read our special report on this difficult matter HERE.
