The review of more than 100 international medical studies of post-operative transsexuals by the University of Birmingham's aggressive research intelligence facility (Arif) found no robust scientific evidence that gender reassignment surgery is clinically effective.
For both men and women, medical treatment typically begins with hormone replacement therapy.
While such studies lend support for existing protocols concerning care of transsexuals, post-operative follow-up research is considered to be lacking.
However a note on a report in the UK Guardian Newspaper states: There is no conclusive evidence that sex change operations improve the lives of transsexuals, with many people remaining severely distressed and even suicidal after the operation, according to a medical review conducted exclusively for Guardian Weekend tomorrow.
Commonly, transsexual people assert that their brain-based inner perception of their sexual self, their identity, is who they really are, and so change their physical sex in an effort to be on the outside as they feel they are on the inside.
If untreated, it can lead to mental and emotional problems, and sometimes suicide.
Many transsexual people agree with the idea that gender is hard-wired in the brain before birth.
One tragic existence is unfolded after another; they cry for help and understanding.
It is depressing to realize how little can be done to come to their aid.
To obtain sex reassignment therapy, transsexual people are usually required to receive psychological therapy and a diagnosis of gender identity disorder in accordance with the Standards of Care (SOC) as issued by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (formerly and until 2006 the Harry Benjamin International Gender Dysphoria Association).
These are guidelines as the medical community struggles in how to deal with the treatment, and the nature of the treatment population changes, and are not obligatory.
