Summary: This study in the Netherlands investigated current rates of gender dysphoria, how frequently gender-affirming treatments were performed, and how many people regretted having treatment by reviewing 6,793 patients’ medical files. This study was conducted in the largest Dutch gender identity clinic, which treats more than 95% of the gender diverse population in the Netherlands. The number of people seeking professional support increased dramatically over recent decades. Of note, of those adults who had gender-affirming surgery, 0.6% of transwomen and 0.3% of transmen were identified as experiencing regret. Of 812 teenagers accessing hormones for puberty suppression, 1.9% chose to discontinue this treatment and to not proceed with further gender-affirming treatment.
