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.

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.

      A few weeks into HRT and I just knew what I experienced and felt was a much MUCH better outcome than alternative. There is absolutely no way I would want or even consider going back of my own free will. Whatever future holds it will be another journey forward 🙂

      Although I have an MSW and was once an LGSW on track for LICSW, I abandoned that path. I still work at the same agency, just in a different role. I was placed at a community mental health clinic for my internship and they hired me after.

      @ElizabethStar @KymmieL @Lexa83   Liz I think that is great the progress made at your wife’s birthday.  I thought my wife and I were moving in that direction too.  Signs and conversations were seeming to go in that direction.  Then this weekend hit.  First, she got upset because I changed for bed in front of her.  Then Saturday more SHTF.  I’ll never be ok, I’ve told you that!  I can’t look at you anymore.  And more.  This continued Sunday when I told her I wasn’t going to church.  We talked a lot on Sunday and today.  Things are better but this was my worst weekend in a long time.  Depression. Crying, fighting...  the whole gambit.   She did apologize.  I said it would be better for me if she didn’t suggest she was doing better about me and then explode.  She said sometimes she thought it be easier if I was full time but I pointed out I wasn’t because she didn’t want me out full time.   very difficult time.   Willow

      I have to drive 5hrs for everything trans---but I have found this gal locally who does fantastic electrolysis and she is fast!  She knows all the trans people, which she is quite protective of and that means I am also safe.   I have this grey-white beard hair too.   She is just a local gal that got a degree and understands how the world turns here.   She also is serving as my therapist, ha ha! My real one is 5+ hrs away and doesn't understand rural people that well.     Maybe you can talk the laser person into getting certified for electrolysis.   It is good money.      ---WILLOW---

      Hi Susan,    thank you so much for you kind words. My older daughter recently helped Shannon do her makeup and dressed her up in some of her cloths and they took pictures. She tried to get her to come show me but maybe in time and with her support.  I will take your advise and see if Chloe will talk with a councillor with me and try and give her some support.  Shannon has always been.... I don’t know how to describe it.... down and out? Chloe showed me a pic of her with her makeup and she was just beaming. I have never seen him like.  Thanks  Pumela

      @Shay no I have the Years of T damage 😂 that is a FaceApp feminized picture of me, I am 61 years old and have had the nickname of Lurch for years. I am just happy to be on the correct path now.
    • Shay
      Even one step better than none.
    • Shay
      And luckily you are young enough to not have to years of T damage. You are going to be lovely - mark my words.

      Even though not an MSW, I have many friends in the Trans community who are MSW and MFT counselors.  To some degree it depends on where your are and where you are applying.  Places like California  have requirements that they must consider you if you are Trans. Thus I do know people getting the jobs.  Call your local LGBTQ Center and see if they know of Trans Accepting places you can get a job, some have clinics that do take on interns, who are snapped up by other places.  it may not be the highest paid, but it will take care of licensing requirements. Location Location Location!!  Planned Parenthood who has family counseling services and is now having clinics for Trans people, and other Service Organizations would also be possibilities where I know people are getting jobs, especially as this pandemic thing is rolling.

      @HollyNoel hang in there - I have been doing electrolysis for about 7 months locally (thank god) but I understand that laser doesn't work (I'm gray as well) and I really am horrible at shaving and it is driving me crazy - BUT - you will find someway, somehow to get it done - I have faith - GROUPON (to get deals) and if you have to drive - you can practice Voice Feminization exercises during the trip or emotion expansion or podcasts about LGBTQ+ topics.

      Thank you @Shay I am feeling so happy right now! Virtual hugs until real ones can be given.      
    • Shay
      Congratulations - it's a big step and I am proud of you. HUGS

      Have you tried therapists in your area to see if there is available space with them? My therapist has had to turn away patients. I figure Psychology Today listings might also help and networking via LinkedIn perhaps? You've probably tried those routes but it's the best I can come up with for you to try.

      @Willow Farmer - hurray Christians who actually are living by the example of Jesus.
