Hermaphrodite sex date

This may be in the same gonad (an ovotestis), or the person might have 1 ovary and 1 testis.

The person may have XX chromosomes, XY chromosomes, or both.

In general, it was considered easier to reconstruct female genitalia than functioning male genitalia, so if the "correct" choice was not clear, the child was often assigned to be a girl.

More recently, the opinion of many experts has shifted.

These include 45, XO (only one X chromosome), and 47, XXY, 47, XXX - both cases have an extra sex chromosome, either an X or a Y.

These disorders do not result in a condition where there is discrepancy between internal and external genitalia.

The external genitals may be ambiguous or may appear to be female or male.

This condition used to be called true hermaphroditism.

This most often is the result of a female fetus having been exposed to excess male hormones before birth.

The labia ("lips" or folds of skin of the external female genitals) fuse, and the clitoris enlarges to appear like a penis.

The best answer will depend on many factors, including the specific cause of the intersex.
