Introduction: Gender identity disorder refers to the most extreme level of sexual boredom and is defined as a feeling of discomfort with one’s own sexual anatomy and the desire to get rid of one’s genital organs and living as members of the opposite sex. This disorder occurs at an early age and results in negative consequences later in life. In this article we attempt to measure gender identity disorder and investigate the most important social factors that cause this disorder.

Methods: This survey study was conducted of 160 patients, referring to welfare centers all over the country, using multi-stage cluster sampling. A standard gender identity disorder questionnaire with an estimated Cronbach's alpha coefficient of .76 was used for data collection. SPSS V.19 was used to describe and analyze the data.

Results: The results showed that the mean score of respondent's gender identity disorder is 3.84 out of 5 which suggests a high level of gender identity disorder among the participants. The results showed that the variables in this study there was a significant relationship with gender identity disorder. Results show that 26% of research to predict changes in gender identity disorder.

Conclusion: The results suggest that  we can hope to reduce and treat gender identity disorders by enhancing the knowledge of families and affected individuals through official and unofficial sources in relation to influencing factors (such as labeling, correcting sex education principles and controlling the relationships with heterosexual peers).
