Hymaphadite man and weman sex
So after months of not knowing what was wrong, the doctor walked into the room and said, ‘So tell me what you know about your testicular feminization….’ (Side note: Testicular Feminization is an antiquated term that is no longer used) And I had no idea what he was talking about.As a 17 year old girl I definitely didn’t want what was wrong with me to have anything to do with testicles. It was a traumatic experience and day, preceded by a lot of other traumatic poking, prodding, and behavior.Toward the end of my Junior year of high school and into the summer I grew much taller really quickly, and gained a lot of weight.I hadn't changed my eating habits and was still swimming and playing water polo, so we knew something was wrong.While most females commonly possess two X chromosomes, my sex chromosomes are XY.Since I don't produce natural estrogen, I take daily hormones to maintain healthy bones, sexual health, and emotional health.They're the too often forgotten "I" at the end of LGBTQI, but according to the Intersex Society of North America, 1 in every 100 people is born with a body that doesn't fit what we typically think of as "male" or "female." Although some intersex people are identified at birth based on the appearance of their genitalia, others discover their status when puberty hits (or doesn't hit), and others still reach old age without ever learning about their condition. Woman A: Being intersex means being born with some characteristics that don't neatly fit into the "normal" spectrum of human sexual development (were there such a thing).
The best I could get is gonadal dysgenesis, which is a fancy way of saying that my gonads (would-be ovaries or testes in the womb) never developed into anything.
Person A: I was afraid and I feel like that mostly has to do with my initial doctor telling me that there is no one else like me in the world which to a 13 year old is pretty horrible to hear.
Man A: I was relieved that they had found my health problem and that I wasn't critically ill, but I was also confused and scared.
I started with an XY chromosome set, but because those gonads didn't develop and produced no hormones, my body kept the Y chromosome but just didn't develop male parts.
So my body stuck along the default path of looking fully female on the outside, but having no functional female reproductive parts on the inside.
