I'll be getting my check up next week but I think I have Klinefelter's Syndrome.

My Pecs are like Breasts,

My buttocks are more female like than male,

And I do have hips.

And I'm Bio-male

I just want to know more about it.

It's not deadly, is it? That's what I'm afriad of.

XXY syndrome is not deadly no. It's characterized often by smaller testes than produce less than normal amounts of testosterone.

Kind of off topic, but how can I test if I have XXY chromosomes?

Been wondering if I have any for a while, because I have a perfectly working testes and body hair. However, my hips are wider than my stomach, I have really low muscle mass, and my breasts protrude a bit. Not sure if this could mean XXY, or if the hips being wider than my stomach and protruding breasts are just because I am a 115 pound 18 year old. XD

Only a karyotype will tell you for sure if you are 47 xxy. However the classic sign of Klinefelter's is a pair of testicles that are smaller and harder than normal ones.

There are many good reasons to know whether or not you are 47xxy. When you go through life and your body doesn't produce any hormones, you could find that later in life you are affected by hormone deficiency disorders that might have been avoided with hrt.

Love,

I am pretty happy about not getting any treatment at any point. I always did my best to be as masculine as possible so I never seemed to lack testosterone, at least not in attitude. I did have some learning adversities at first, but self-discipline and learning by myself made me actually come out on top. I really wish society didn't see us a such a problem. I mean wikipedia says 58% of pregnancies diagnosed with xxy get aborted. That is pretty sad.

I know these post's are old, but this is from my own experience, I was diagnosed in 1977 being Sterile. MD offered to give me Male Hormone injections, but he said they were very risky for Cancer. I did not go for the injections. I did not ask the Dr. any questions of my sterility, also my Penis was small and I had 1- Testicle. Also had Gynomasestia, wide hips and low muscle mass. I was always very self conscious of myself. I also felt very Feminine. I tried to be male and it was expected. Well a few years back, I was feeling Depressed, and tired all of the time. I had anemia,and MD could not explain it,I went to another MD [ Endo. } last year and had a series of Blood Tests. I found out that I was 47 xxy , I am on male hormones to maintain Heart & Bone Health, that is the real Danger. I under stand, that little was known about KS 45 years ago, plus my own denial of trying to find out my problems when I was younger. I hope this info.helps.

We're all individual humans. Human sexuality is on a spectrum, and I've heard that 1-2% or more don't physically fit the gender binary at all with even more people who don't fit well.

Klinefelter's/XXY isn't the only thing that can cause odd secondary sex characteristics. There are other genetic conditions, mosaicism, hypogonadism, hypogonaditic hypogonadism, Kallmann Syndrome (with varying degrees of anosmia), partial androgen insensitivity--the list goes on and on and on.

I'm convinced that many transsexual people have some sort of intersex condition that hasn't been fully explored yet.

Hi Jenn,

You are right that there are many intersex conditions that can cause a myriad of variable conditions. I understand that Klinefelters might well be the most prevalent and some with Klinefelters a.k.a. xxy have a combination of other conditions that you have listed.

A great deal of people who describe themselves as transsexuals are indeed intersex. It is not beneficial to describe yourself as intersex if you plan to transition to the other gender.

Hi, i'm one of those with Klinefelters and several othe intersex conditions. I have a small penis, only one small testicle that hrt has made invisible, and one malformed non functioning ovary. I also have a female pelvis and female bone structure, and I've always known I was a girl despite at my adopted fathers insistence with much resistance from me, my being raised as a boy. I'm currently 8 months into my hrt for full feminization and began transition upon going full tiume as a woman 5 years ago. I have no trouble passing. In fact, I pass without thinking about it. Growing up like this was pure hell. But I thank God every day for my conditions as they helped me keep my youthful looks and femininity until I was finally able to find an Endo with trans experience to get my hrt started.

      They have done so already I am afraid.  Nothing new really, but Cass included views of our home brewed bigots to create this.

      Met up with a teacher I had back in high school and went good.Was 27 years ago I last saw her after I graduated.Walked into her classroom and we hugged calling me Adrianna.Remembered seeing me as male seeing I was holding something in.Told her I am much happier now and said she noticed it now.Even said seen me as an 18 year old and now as a 45 year old transwoman.Did get to walk down the halls bringing back lots of memories too.Ran into another teacher I had too.She said I changed big time.Told her I go as Adrianna now,transgender on the hormones.Also said she noticed I was unhappy at times and I am much happier now.I did take a picture with both of these two

      Hi, Kayla.   Another Bluenoser!  (Actually, I'm not a real one.  I am a CFA.)    I can't answer your question about the effects of spiro alone.  I started on spiro and estrogen at the same time.  I expect that spiro alone might relieve some dysphoria symptoms, but would not start any physical changes.  But that is just a guess.  The big thing with spiro is to drink enough water, since it is a powerful diuretic.   I started out getting my transition care from the Halifax Sexual Health Centre, but once my hormone regime was stable, I asked my GP if she would be comfortable taking over my prescription.  She was, so I no longer have to do the long commute into the city.   Regards, Kathy

      I can't answer your question since my doc's plan didn't start that way, but I do love to quote what she said to me when we began HRT when I see a post like this, "Let's get this party started!"

      Thanks for listening Vidanjali. And don’t worry, I am now planning two weeks off before I try to write a more in-depth response. I am well aware of how much Cass has been hurting me.

      Thank you, Mindy! Such a warm welcome!! I’m excited and honoured to be here !! 😊

      I don't need that "new math."  My brain does it on its own.
    • Willow
      You know the advantages we had using long division and multiplication, slide rules and log table?  We can look at a result and know right away if something is wrong with it. Kids that have grown up using calculators can hit keystrokes on their calculator but they have no clue that the answer is wrong when there is a factor of ten that they messed up.  Also we learned our basic math tables inside out and upside down. They use this new math that mixes everything up.

      Hi All,   So today, I finally met with my Nurse Practitioner in her office to officially go over HRT for me. A little bit of background about gender affirming care in my province I live in - Doctors and NP’s now have the authority to perform gender affirming care as per a new directive recently. I only know because 6 weeks ago when I met with her and telling her about who I truly am, she said that before our appointment she was in a province wide zoom meeting with the sexual health centre in Halifax about gender affirming care and them explaining to all the PCP’s that if they can handle gender affirming care in the community as it would help save resources to focus on the more sensitive clientele such as children and teens.   At the end, I had to sign a document ensuring I understood everything. I grabbed the document so fast and signed away !!   So, she prescribed XXmg of spiro daily in the morning (Anti-Androgen) to start for 4 weeks and then seeing how I respond to that, she’s going to then start me on Estrogen pills. I already have a follow up appointment booked at the end of June.   I trust my NP wholeheartedly, kinda disappointed that I didn’t get the E, but I totally understand why. I’m a little nervous with the side effects however of Spiro, but regardless of side effects I’m going ahead with the plan and trusting in process and becoming who I’m truly supposed to be.   Question though as I’m curious - I know it’s a low dose of spiro but even then what sort of changes can I see from just the spiro alone without the e for those first 4 weeks?    thanks everyone!!   Kayla

      Yes I do... Creating/Building handcrafted gifts for family and friends using wood or metal. Camping and all the things you think could go with that, hiking, fishing, hunting, bird watching, meeting new people, and music festivals. Bluegrass, Folk, Americana. Seeing new parts of the world, and historical locations. Star gazing.   My father use to say he didn't trust anyone that didn't have at least to vises. I'm not so worried about your vises, however I don't think anyone should have less than two hobbies.   Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      We were not allowed to use calculators in high school.  Even if we could afford one, $80 (in 1970 dollars!) would only get you a four-function calculator, so it would have been pointless anyway.  Everything was slide rules and longhand.  Being a math nerd, that was no hardship for me.   When my brothers and I were cleaning out my father's house after he passed, I found a couple of slide rules in his wife's desk.  I appropriated them and still have them, my own having been foolishly tossed years ago.

      That is lovely, Charlize.  Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts, and congrats on your "anniversary."  It's always been the little things that make me happiest about being a woman outwardly, and I'm glad that it's the same for you.  Getting older can sometimes be unpleasant and difficult, but we who transitioned later in life can appreciate the changes transition has brought us, as much as, or perhaps more than, someone who transitioned young.    HUGS   Carolyn Marie
