The external genitals of a true hermaphrodite are often ambiguous and do not perform as normal genitals.The main cause of this condition has not been established.
I don't have an official diagnosis, and often with intersex condition, that's the case.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.Some hermaphrodites have a more dominant sex organ, while others have a combination of both sexual organs with no clearly-defined dominant organ.A true hermaphrodite is someone born with both ovarian and testicular tissues.Nevertheless, it is believed that the mutation of the sex-determining gene and the fertilization of an ovum by two sperms are possible causes.
A female pseudo-hermaphrodite has ovaries but, has male or ambiguous characteristics externally.Woman B: I have a congenital Disorder/Difference of Sex Development (DSD) called pure gonadal dysgenesi, or Swyer Syndrome.I'm an intersex woman without fully functioning gonads, or sex glands.Man A: I have an XXY chromosome set with Partial Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome, so that's two elements of intersex in one body. There was no difference in me as a child, no ambiguous genitalia as an immediate alert, so I only found out once I failed to start puberty.I have one ovary, a uterus, and a vagina (via vaginaplasty and labiaplasty) behind my scrotum, but I also have a functional penis and one testicle. How old were you when you realized you were intersex? My mom started getting concerned that I had no period or breast development, so that was when the first doctor's appointment happened.Some societies prevent hermaphrodites from participating in certain activities, such as as sports or politics.
