While most females commonly possess two X chromosomes, my sex chromosomes are XY.
Since I don't produce natural estrogen, I take daily hormones to maintain healthy bones, sexual health, and emotional health.
I have one ovary, a uterus, and a vagina (via vaginaplasty and labiaplasty) behind my scrotum, but I also have a functional penis and one testicle. Let me tell you — the only thing more awkward than going through puberty is going through puberty.)Woman B: I found out two weeks after my 16th birthday.
I have no body hair, female skeleton, and I menstruate. Concerns over an absent period led my parents and I to seek answers at a nearby women's health center. We were told I had typically male chromosomes and no ovaries.
The medical world advised that the only option was for me to live as female, which I did for seven years. I felt like it was a super power, being female with a Y chromosome. I am blessed in that I received my diagnosis in a liberal household in the 21st century, and both my parents and doctors were so honest and supportive.
Genetically, however, I have XY (male) chromosomes. There was no difference in me as a child, no ambiguous genitalia as an immediate alert, so I only found out once I failed to start puberty.

Person A: I was 13 when I was first taken to a doctor to see why I didn’t get my period yet and so they ran a bunch of tests which they then noticed I had XY chromosomes with outwardly feminine characteristics and physique. I had been raised as male since birth, as I looked like a "normal" male.
Woman C: For me, in general, being intersex means being born with primary or secondary sex characteristics that do not fit neatly into society's binary definitions of male or female.
You're born with traits and characteristics of both sexes. For me specifically, being intersex means that I was born with Swyer Syndrome.
