This seems to be a thing. I wrote about it a bit here but very interested to hear other women's experiences, observations, and analysis of what's going on here.

I don't know for sure but I wouldn't be surprised if mental illness is a huge factor, and being very disconnected from their bodies due to trauma and other issues. One of those women in the article mentioned chronic pain which can cause a lot of dissociation and disembodiment. I've definitely come across people who detransitioned after resolving physical health issues, which were contributing to dysphoria.
