Ask your Doctor if you have MGD

Hi Xelishiken,

So, since you can have a period, but only if you take hormones, that sounds like you have a uterus but not functioning ovaries. So, I would have to take back what I said about a period meaning you must have a 46XX karyotype.

It is possible you have this condition:

Puberty can be fully masculinizing, or weakly masculinizing, or not happen; it is almost never feminizing. There are sometimes tell-tale signs of MGD, which are basically, the same as the signs of Turner syndrome but often less pronounced.

See:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turner_syndrome

So, your gender therapist may be on the right track to suggest this could be a chromosomal issue. It would make sense to bring his possibility up with a physician.

It would be worth it to check, just in case the information you are seeking is in those records. If you were still in your teens, they would possibly have not told you as much as they knew or suspected.
