In the past people in the Netherlands, like nearby Nordic countries, were forced to "prove" sterility by the way of genital surgery and no storage of sperm or eggs in order to change their gender lagally.

In 2013 this law was changed to allow people age 16 and up to change their legal gender with an "expert opinion" testifying to (the client's) desire to change their gender identification. The change takes effect 1st July 2014.[1]
