This means that the Reitz-TeechConsult Test has classified your internal gender identity to be essentially feminine but with some masculine or androgynous traits. It is very possible that you are a candidate for a diagnosis of transexualism.

You show a strong degree of gender dysphoria. At the very least, further investigation should be undertaken with highly qualified professionals. Your score places you among the majority of those diagnosed as transexuals – the 'late onset' transexual.

What NEXT?

Your situation is potentially serious and indicative of a probable inborn gender conflict. It is definitely recommended that you pursue further action. The suggestions for your circumstance are several:

1. Seek help from a sympathetic registered counsellor or medical professional about your gender issues. It is very possible that over time they will become increasingly difficult to cope with. Early determination of what you really need and want is vital. You need to determine if you truly are transexual.

While you are very possibly a transexual, the test has determined that this is not absolutely certain. While time is an issue, being certain is more important. Proceed with investigation of your possible transexuality or transgenderism, but with a degree of caution.

2. Some actions may help you to define your needs more clearly. Experimenting with living full time as a woman, taking hormones for a short time under supervision or taking testosterone suppressers to observe how you feel are all viable options.

Again, keep in mind that while it is very likely that you might be a transexual, this is not certain. Do not take severe or permanent actions without long thought and the help of registered counsellors and medical professionals!

3. Your gender issues are real, and should not be ignored. Neither should you rush into acting on them, however powerful they may feel. You do not fit the full criterion for the rarest classification, classic transexuality.

You should be cautious and open to possibilities. You may yet end up undergoing transition and the path of the transexual may well be your salvation. Be very careful but do not ignore your personal issues.
