Gender-Affirming Medical Treatments.

Individuals with gender dysphoria (as defined by Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders or DSM-V) experience a marked incongruence between the sex assigned at birth and the experienced gender resulting in significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.

This article will outline the role of medical providers in implementing safe and effective gender-affirming medical treatments in youth.
