In Indonesia, disorders of sex development DSDs are not well recognized and medical care for affected individuals is scarce. Consequently, many patients live with ambiguous genitalia and appearance. We compared reported outcomes on body image, sexual functioning, and sexual orientation of 39 adults with DSDs aged 18 to 41 and 39 healthy controls matched for gender, age, and residential setting urban, suburban, rural. Differences in gender and treatment status treated or untreated were also explored. On body image, adults with DSDs reported dissatisfaction with sex-related body parts.
