Life is a tapestry woven with threads of various identities, and gender plays a monumental role in it. The conversation around gender has evolved, bringing terms like ‘Gender Identity Disorder’ (GID) to the forefront. But, what is it exactly? The folks at India IVF Fertility, with clinics located in the hubs of Delhi, Noida, and Gurgaon, are here to shed light on this condition. Let’s navigate this labyrinth together, shall we?
Gender Identity Disorder, colloquially known as GID, is a term historically used to describe individuals whose gender identity doesn’t align with the sex they were assigned at birth.
