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.

etc,

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.

      I don't always agree with Blair White, I'm fact I don't agree with most of what she says. I just think she is so beautiful and would love to look even half as good as she does.

      Oh, you know what you need to do sweetie.  
    • Heather Nicole
      Oh, wow, those are awesome! I only do clear on my fingers, but I like to go loud and pretty on my toenails because I can just cover them with socks when I need to. But shoot, I already have so much polish as it is...Oh, what to do... 
    • Jackie C.
      The article raises perhaps the most important part. Just because you're trans, doesn't mean you're a gender binary. I think more people could benefit from that brain nugget.   Hugs!

      A good article on the issues facing the parents of transgender kids.    https://news.yahoo.com/parents-of-transgender-kids-take-issue-with-simplistic-portrayal-of-issue-100002879.html

      I used to watch Blair and Rose and agree with Maid in Bedlam. It's also kinda annoying when they throw a political angle into everything. I love Contrapoints (she drinks too much, but is georgeous!) and her exploration of ideas, but when she gets political and start's telling people how to vote. I think that's an abuse of power.   I have never really followed the same political party between elections (here in the UK). I may not agree with all the policies from one particular party, but make an educated decision to pick the best bits of policy that best suits my lifestyle and opinions. And all opinions are an evoloution of ideas that need exploring. My wife votes differently to me, and opinion with respect is the spice of life and what debates and conversation are made for xx.    
    • LusciousTheLock
      Wow! Thank you. Your progress is much further than mine. I'm just over 12 months into social transition and expect to start Hormones in around eight months if all goes to plan, its not easy here in the UK. The thing that always held me back the most was believing I was a freak or a "Shouldn't have been" a mistake. It took me three years of counselling to admit, that maybe I'm not such a bad person and I do deserve and have a right to live and be the person I want to be. The only reason I opened up in the end was when my own counsellor admitted that our stories were so very similar and she completely understood my thought processes and decision making. There are more of us out there, and I hope the world is changing for the better. Children, shouldn't go through what we did.

      My new voice therapist is about an hour away and they do telemed appts. It's not ideal but better than nothing. Sorry your insurance won't help with it. Have you found anything useful on YouTube? I tried that first and it was too confusing and not very comprehensive, just a mash up of random tricks to try and that isn't very helpful for me.   That's really interesting, I too always thought my voice wasn't masculine enough when I was trying to be that way. I know a lot of it has to do with the words I use and how I say things.

      I have some dresses that I wear in hot weather at home.  But I'm not sure I would wear them when out and about.  My youngest daughter tried to get me into something short awhile back.  I told her I needed to act my age.
