RELATED TERMS
--------------------------------------

Surgery
Treating diseases or other medical conditions by operating on a patient to remove or repair parts of the body.

Vagina
The tube that forms the passage between the cervix/uterus and the vulva. It receives the penis during sexual intercourse and serves as the delivery passage for birth and for menstrual flow.

Transexualism
The condition of crossing over to live full-time in the role of the other sex, with hormonal and surgical sex reassignment. The term signifies a method of treatment and rehabilitation rather than a diagnostic entity. There are different biographical antecedents to sex reassignment, one of which may be paraphilic transvestism (transvestophilia). Transexualism itself is not a paraphilia. Behaviorally, the act of living and passing in the role of the opposite sex, before or after having attained hormonal, surgical, and legal sex reassignment; psychically, the condition of people who have the conviction that they belong to the opposite sex and are driven by a compulsion to have the body, appearance, and social status of the opposite sex.

Trauma
Injury caused by external force, chemical, temperature extremes, or poor tooth alignment.
