Should I Take A Gender Orientation Test or Quiz?

Questioning your gender orientation is extremely normal.

With the vast variety of options and labels, it can be difficult to figure out.

However, we DON’T recommend taking a gender orientation test or quiz you find on the internet, as they often are NOT backed by facts, research, or give any genuine and clear indications which gender you truly are.

Instead of taking a gender orientation test or quiz,  we at ANZPath, highly recommend using Pride Counseling for professional gender therapy to get you more clarity on where you might be on the gender spectrum.

A licensed therapist knows how to help you based on experience and education.
