Person A: I don’t identify with the normal boy girl stereotypes because technically I’m something different. 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.
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.I always wondered why I did, and (thank you google) discovered Swyer Syndrome around 2008?I then [told my doctors at my next appointment] and let them know. that makes sense.' I don't want to make [my doctors] seem negligent or paint them in a negative light, at all. Person A: I was 13 when I was first taken to a doctor to see why I didn’t get my period yet and so they ran a bunch of tests which they then noticed I had XY chromosomes with outwardly feminine characteristics and physique. I had been raised as male since birth, as I looked like a "normal" male.Woman C: For me, in general, being intersex means being born with primary or secondary sex characteristics that do not fit neatly into society's binary definitions of male or female.You're born with traits and characteristics of both sexes. For me specifically, being intersex means that I was born with Swyer Syndrome.
