This chapter covers gender-related issues in psychiatry, alongside reproductive and sexual health. Fully updated to match the latest views on gender identity and dysphoria, given the developments in conceptualization of people who identify as transgender, both within the medical profession and in wider society, this chapter covers the diagnosis of gender dysphoria, assessment, and management. Menstrual and premenstrual conditions are also described, and disorders associated with pregnancy and childbirth are discussed. Sexual dysfunction and disorders of sexual preference are also covered.
