  • I am sorry have forgotten the term used for one born like this. It is not classed as a disease but that something went wrong in the forming stages before birth. This happens sometimes. Surgeons will go in usually and decide which reproductive or which male or female organs are dominant in the baby and correct this over a period of time and surgeries. It may be that your child will have more stronger male organs and will then be male rather than the daughter you think you have. Your doctor should be able to tell you more on this.I worked at a pediatric clinic and sometimes if the sex of the child changed following the surgery I know one parents moved to begin in another city that did not know about this to make it easier on the child first growing up.

  • It's called Intersex. If you google it, you should be able to find the national organization for intersexed individuals. ^_^ Good luck.
