It may be worth noting that there is a close-up of a dead fish being sliced open for gutting at the beginning of the film.

Use of medication prescribed by a doctor. These are generally taken as directed, but there is one scene in which the character appears to take an additional dose in response to stress; another character demands, "Didn't you just take one of those?" and receives a defiant response.

There is a close-up of a dead fish being sliced open with a knife for gutting at the beginning of the film. This is not bloody, but may be triggering for some.

It may be worth noting that radiation therapy is depicted, as well as its aftermath (the patient appearing sick/weakened). Although it is not being used to treat cancer, this may be triggering for some.

The characters visit a hospital for radiation therapy and then spend some time in a women's clinic for surgical procedures. During the radiation scene, the patient protests that they are not ill and do not need the treatment. Depiction of outdated equipment for radiation therapy, hospital beds and restraining straps, an IV bag and rack (no close-ups of needles, etc.), an oxygen mask and tank, and some other odds and ends.

One of the protagonists visits multiple psychologists and generally has negative experiences and is misdiagnosed as a homosexual and then a schizophrenic. The sequence ends with the protagonist escaping out a window as a trio of men advance down the hall with a straightjacket.

Electro-therapy is not used during the course of this film. However, there is a scene in which one of the protagonists is subjected to radiation therapy using outdated equipment. The protagonist does not physically struggle, but appears distressed and protests that she is not ill and does not need the treatment. Depiction of the procedure includes the protagonist lying on a bed with a leather restraint buckled across her chest and arms to immobilize the torso, a white patch strapped over the genitals, and the machine suspended over the crotch. The protagonist winces and grips the edges of the table. This is not a depiction of electro-therapy and there is no thrashing, seizing, loss of consciousness, etc. Note that it may appear similar to some and use your discretion.

One of the protagonists exhibits emotional distress throughout the film, including one scene in which she gets a nosebleed while kissing a man at a party and another scene in which she attempts to excuse herself from the room, but collapses.

Later in the film, the main protagonist begins to show signs of having an eating disorder. Multiple characters make remarks about how thin she has become and when one of them asks how she remains so slender while eating so much sugar, she responds that the trick is to eat nothing else. Her surgeon delays a procedure, telling her that she needs to gain some weight first and regain her strength.

There is no gaslighting. Lili was not being made to think she was crazy and if she was lied to it was not done with malicious intent

No one commits suicide in this movie. The main protagonist admits to suicidal thoughts in one scene and when her surgeon later explains the high-risk nature of the (first-ever) sex reassignment surgery, she states that it's her "only hope". When her wife argues that it's too early to undergo the second phase of surgery, insisting, "I won't help you to kill yourself", the main protagonist points out that the surgeon thinks it's time to proceed. Acknowledging the risks of a medical procedure and proceeding at the direction of a medical professional is not suicide.

The main protagonist is pursued and assaulted by a pair of men who accuse her of being a lesbian and ask her whether she is a man or a woman. She is also misdiagnosed by multiple doctors.

no, but there is a scene where the main character is attacked by two french men (around an hour into the movie) and it's an attacked fueled by transphobia/homophobia.
