Psychoendocrinology of gender dysphoria

Jannini Emmanuele A

Usually, gender identity (GI) and biological sex are physiologically consistent, but this is not the case when individuals have a GI disorder/dysforia (GD) and thus require hormonal and/or surgical feminization/masculinization to reduce the discrepancy between the sense of self and sexual characteristics. The role of the Endocrinologist expert in Sexual Medicine and, in particular, in GD is crucial and pivotal. They (the transgenders), in fact, are a heterogeneous population f...

A consecutive series of 156 heterosexual women consulting our outpatient clinic for FSD between January and December 2014 was retr...

Corona Giovanni , Jannini Emmanuele , Lotti Francesco , Boddi Valentina , de Vita Giulia , Forti Gianni , Lenzi Andrea , Mannucci Edoardo , Maggi Mario

Introduction: Although it is well established that all the aspects of male reproduction are hormonally regulated, the endocrine control of the ejaculatory reflex is still not completely clarified. Sex steroids, thyroid and pituitary hormones (oxytocin and prolactin) have been proposed to control the ejaculatory process at various levels, however, only a few reports are currently available. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the contribution of testosterone, TSH and pr...

Introduction: Adrenal Insufficiency (AI) is characterized by absolute or relative deficiency of glucocorticoids and adrenal androgen precursors. Patients with AI show an impaired quality of life, metabolic status, immune function and dysregulated circadian genes. Data on sexual function are scarce and often contradictory. The aims of the present study are to evaluate sexual dysfunction (SD) in women and men patients with AI and to investigate the effects of restoring a more ph...

Maseroli Elisa , Fanni Egidia , Cipriani Sarah , Scavello Irene , Pampaloni Francesca , Battaglia Cesare , Fambrini Massimiliano , Mannucci Edoardo , Jannini Emmanuele A , Maggi Mario , Vignozzi Linda

The relation between sexual and cardiovascular health in women is not well defined. Clitoral colour Doppler ultrasound (CDU) with assessment of the pulsatility index (PI), reflecting resistance to blood flow, has been proposed as an objective measurement of sexual functioning. We aimed to investigate the associations between clitoral PI and cardiometabolic risk factors. Seventy-one adult heterosexual women attending our clinic for sexual dysfunction were consecutively recruite...
