Mistake on Uzbekistan Visa

I like many have struggled to obtain an e-visas for my self and my wife, but finally I was successful.
Unfortunately the box for "Jinsi/Sex" shows M for my wife!
Most likely my mistake so some advice on what to do would be helpful.
I can either apply again, but would that cause confusion, or hope that at the immigration desk it will be seen as a genuine mistake.
Comments appreciated especially from anyone who has had the same problem.

My best advice is not to worry about it, and hope the guards don’t notice either. And worst case scenario and they call you out on it, just explain the mistake and they should be understanding.

Another traveller I met in Uzbekistan last month showed me his sticker visa which the embassy printed with the wrong dates, and then correcred by simply scribbling them out with a pen... granted it looked extremely suspicious, but he reported that at the border there was no issue after explaining the circumstances.

I’ve had three boarding passes from two different airlines in the past marked as “Ms.” instead of “Mr.” and never had an issue. Enjoy Uzbekistan!
