In the Philippines, the gender on a birth certificate can be changed in the case of "a clerical or typographical error." A hard_won legal precedent for changing the gender designation for identity reasons also exists.

Your parent(s) should have registered your birth with the US Embassy in the country where you were born. Your parent(s) would have received a document called "Consular Report of Birth Abroad" which is a report that works similarly to an official birth certificate in many cases. It is possible to get a copy of this directly from the U.S. Department of State, or you may be able to order it online through a trusted ordering service that handles online ordering for vital record agencies in the U.S. Additionally, some countries will list your birth in their records.
