Intersex xxx

Research suggests, however, that in a few births per thousand some individuals will be born with a single sex chromosome (45X or 45Y) (sex monosomies) and some with three or more sex chromosomes (47XXX, 47XYY or 47XXY, etc.) (sex polysomies).Clearly, there are not only females who are XX and males who are XY, but rather, there is a range of chromosome complements, hormone balances, and phenotypic variations that determine sex.(5) When a Y chromosome is present, early embryonic testes develop around the 10th week of pregnancy.

Intersex xxx-83

“Intersex” is a general term used for a variety of conditions in which a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male.

For example, a person might be born appearing to be female on the outside, but having mostly male-typical anatomy on the inside.

Internally, testes may be normal, malformed, or absent.

This condition is also called 46, XY with undervirilization. Formation of normal male external genitals depends on the appropriate balance between male and female hormones.

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. Similarly some females are also born 46XY due to mutations in the Y chromosome. In addition, some males are born 46XX due to the translocation of a tiny section of the sex determining region of the Y chromosome.Which variations of sexual anatomy count as intersex?In practice, different people have different answers to that question.However, this is considered controversial, with no firm evidence of good outcomes.
