What is intersex?

Intersex is a group of conditions where there is a discrepancy between the external genitals and the internal genitals (the testes and ovaries). This is usually understood to be congenital, involving chromosomal, morphologic, genital and/or gonadal anomalies.

Common symptoms reported by people with intersex


Reports may be affected by other conditions and/or medication side effects. We ask about general symptoms (anxious mood, depressed mood, fatigue, pain, and stress) regardless of condition.
