Background: Gender Identity Disorders (GID) have been considered as a set of complex clinical conditions. They can lead to problematic and traumatic outcomes for the given individuals, their families and the society. In order to better understanding of GIDs, the aim of the present study was to compare attachment styles between three groups including transsexuals after Sex Reassignment Surgery (SRS), transsexuals before SRS and nontranssexuals. Methods: Thirty five Male-to-Female (MF) transsexuals (20 transsexuals before SRS, 15 transsexuals after SRS) and also twenty nontranssexuals participated in this study. All participants were asked to complete Adult Attachment Inventory (AAI). Findings: The results revealed that the higher average scores in insecure attachment styles (avoidant and ambivalent) belonged to transsexuals before SRS, transsexuals after SRS and nontranssexuals, respectively. The difference between transsexuals after SRS and nontranssexuals was not significant in none of attachment styles. Conclusion: Based on these results, one can conclude that transsexuals after SRS in contrary to transsexuals before SRS, are closer to nontranssexuals in attachment styles.
