I think I might be intersex

Recommended Posts

Arya

I think I am an intersex trans girl. As I have already posted about my gender identity, I am not going to explain how I knew I was a girl. If you want to know, you can read my intro. When I was very small, I have heard my parents telling my relatives about my birth story. They used to say that no one told them whether they had a boy or a girl. The doctors just asked my father to check it himself. My mother was told later by my aunt to whom my father told that I was a boy. I also read my mother's pregnancy reports. It is not legal in India to tell the gender of the unborn child. But I found something written by pen- XX XY and the rules of sex determination in humans. I asked my father if he had ever asked the doctor about my gender when I was not born. But he denied. I also had to use a cream in the genital area because I had some skin problem that has ended after 2 years. I also have a lot of pain in my scrotum time to time. I also sometimes feel the pain when I have an erection. It feels very bad for me to see my genitals because I want to be a girl. But, I think I should talk about it openly. So, I have mentioned these things. Please someone tell me of they had a similar condition. How to find out? I think my parents might have no idea about this.. But, who knows?

I feel you...

I went back and reviewed a paternal DNA test that was done in early 90s. It revealed I have all 4 of the human genes. XX/XY

 

That said, I now realize this is why I feel so girly. It explains so much. I wish my Mother was still alive. I have so many questions only she can answer.

 

You have to follow your heart. It's not easy but, like in my case, I stand only here with my sisters. Y'all have helped make my transition seamless. The rollercoaster is now just a track running on level ground. I don't have the massive mood swings anymore. HRT is working. My hormone intake is that of a 55 year old, post menopausal woman. I was speaking to a Lyft driver yesterday. She is 57. She had her hysterectomy 2 years ago and her dosages have balanced her out and she claims since her last dosage adjustment she has not had a single mood swing and is enjoying life. My dosage level is identical to hers and I concur.

 

I feel fine.

 

Get a doctor that gets it. Go to therapy and above all else...

 

...be honest with yourself.

 

There's no doubt! No doubt!!!

But I am just 15 years old. I can't meet a doctor without my parents' consent.That's very bad for me.

Since you do not know the exact cause of pain in your body, you should see a doctor and let them decide what causes it.  Tell your parents about the PAIN, but not about what YOU suspect it could be.  A parent does not want their child in pain, I have not with my children who are now in their 40's.  This may be the best you can do until you get to the age where you can see a doctor without their consent.

Oh, that's a great idea! I would go with it. Thanks.

Arya you will most likely need a genetic test to prove if you're intersex.  I'm not a doctor but from my reading it seems you may be correct.  Unfortunately you will have to wait until you are older and on your own to get a test.  While its nice to know, not knowing shouldn't hold back any steps you wish to take.  

 

Cheers,

Jani

Thanks for the suggestions, @Jani 

But it's hard to wait because of the dysphoria I feel after looking at my body. I have excessive body hair more than my father and brother but fortunately I have less facial hair at the moment. But, I fear that they will get darker which will make me go into depression. Though I am happy as I think I might have started a feminising puberty a year ago but I want the male part to go away. I feel like I have OT-DSD which means I have ambiguous gonads inside. The hospital where I was born hid my sex from my parents until they were asked to look at my genitals themselves. The pain and scars which have started developing again solidify my hypothesis. I have also started getting spontaneous discharges from my genitals and burning pain (not arousal fluids, but something like vaginal discharge). By my calculations, I hope to start getting my period in 2 years.

      Another cold snap coming our way, but shouldn't get below freezing, except maybe overnight, and at least it should be brighter than the constant rain at the end of last week. Just about to get my breakfast before going to mum's!   Tracy

      I have had a couple of super high readings several years ago, and they went down after a seeming peak at one point.  My endo went so far as to see if the Lab had had problems because it fell like a rock in a week.  Other than lab error the real reason was never determined.  Sorry to say.

      Follow-up: Detroit PD and prosecutors have arrested and charged a suspect in this crime.  A motive was not divulged.   Kudos to Detroit PD for the quick work on this case.   https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/detroit-city/2018/12/10/charges-filed-slain-detroit-transgender-woman/2273251002/   Carolyn Marie

      First off, i want to assure everyone that I have talked to my endo about this, and she is concerned and pro-active, and I feel confident that she knows what's up.  Just the same, I'm curious if anyone has had experience with this rather, um, unusual problem.   I had what should have been routine blood tests for T and E, as well as sex hormone biding serum globulin.  Well, the results were startling; the SHBSG was almost three times the highest range figure, and the estradiol LC/MS was also three times higher than the reference range high point.   I've been on HRT for nearly 8 years, and this test, and the one 6 months ago, are the first to show that kind of result.  The doctor asked me to stop the estradiol for a week and get retested.  If it doesn't go back to something approaching the normal range, the doc is going to start looking for reasons why my body is producing that much excess estrogen. The risk of not getting it under control is obvious; much higher risks for DVT's and damage to my thyroid gland.   So, anyone have results like that, and if so, what was the cause?  Thanks, gang.   Carolyn Marie

      Guys I just ordered my first binder and I am super excited!!! There are a couple small details that I am worried about but I don't want to think of those right now 😁
    • RithiaAllen
      Thanks. That is the result of several years of training maybe more if you consider the four years of Clearanet playing in middle school and high school.

      Very good!!!  Have fun. 
    • Jani
      Well you could certainly order on-line.  JC Penney currently has some great prices on jeans, then add in a discount!   I like to try things on in the store but finding jeans (tall) can be hard when I look for something specific.  But this time I knew what size I needed so I ordered a few pairs.  Use the Size charts and read the comments to assess if they run large, small or true to size.  Use your hip measurement rather than waist to determine the size to order.      The other place is to look at thrift shops (not consignment, they can be pricey) or Goodwill.   I find a lot of neat things.     As to Undies, just go to Walmart or Target.  No one will care and you can get what you need.     
    • Shannon
      Thank you for your responses. Any suggestions on my current clothing issue?  
    • Carolyn Marie
      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Shannon.  I agree with colleagues re. your post.  Getting totally absorbed with being female and feminine is something most of us have gone through.  It can be wonderful to explore all the aspects of being a woman.  But it is best to take things one step at a time.  It is a marathon, not a sprint race.   Please have a look around the forums and comment or ask questions wherever you find an interest.  We're here to help.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie
