Im a bit confused on the two

Hey there,

So, dysphoria is where the individual is dissatisfied with their biological sex and feels like their gender does not reflect this , and this can present itself as extreme dissatisfaction with the body you're in. On the other hand,Β  body dysmorphia is where you have a distorted perception of how your body looks versus how it actually is, so you feel like it looks very different than how it is. Does that make sense?
