Femenine pseudointerxesuality:
The patient have internal female ovaries but external genitals are like males. This is caused because the female fetus has beeen too exposed to male hormones. For example if the mum consume too much testosterone on the pregnancy.
Masculine pseudointersexuality:
The patien have male chromosomes and it can have internal testicles but it doesn´t have external male genitals, it have female genitals or not developed male genitals. Is caused because the receptors of male hormones don´t work well.
Real intersexuality:
They have both external and internal genitals an chromosomes, but they have conbinated in diferent grades.
Undetermined interxesualityes:
Are caused by all the syndromes caused by a disorder in sexual chromosomes.
So that term is quite offensive.
What would you do if you had an intersex baby?

Do you think that the social safety have to pay sex change surgery ?

What do you thik about intersex people? Do you look them like a normal person or you exclude ?

If you were intersex, would you operate to change your genitals?

If you had a intersex baby and when grows up is happy with his sex, would you tell him that he is intersex?
To have sex change cost betwen 12.000 and 24.000 euros and if the patient want to put other characteristic of the oposite sex have to pay like an extra. For exanple if it want tits it have to pay 6000 euros apart fron the sex change surgery. So it cost a lot of money and the social safety don´t give any economic help.
