Can someone with ovotestis comment please?
« on: February 13, 2017, 09:11:35 pm »
According to my xrays I have more pelvic feminie traits than male traits,
I also have something going on with my danglers that is strange, and has always been there.
There is this scrotal mass on the left side, it is not a tumor, its not any of the normal testicular conditions that can develop, i dont know what it is, all i can assume is that its an ovary... Also without being on hrt my Estrogen is high, like in the 50's, and my testosterone is only about 300-400, and this is from samples taken early in the morning. I was diagnosed with hypogonadism. Also, I dont know if it's relevant, but i have pectus excavatum, and my sternum is not fused yet, and i am 30, It pops all the time as a matter of fact. I know that this is often seen with xxy, and other conditions.
Can anyone that has been diagnosed with ovotestis tell me what some things are that i could look/feel for? I need to determine whether or not I have this.

That sounds like a spermatocele (epididymal cyst), or testicular cyst.  It should be evaluated by a doctor.

You might be interested in reading a bit on prenatal exposure to xenoestrogenic compounds.  Exposure during fetal development is correlated with a number of interesting things including much of what you mention in your post.  I have a personal interest, as I was exposed to high levels of diethylstilbesterone, or DES, from about week 10 of my fetal development.

Well it's not a spermatocele, or a hydrocele, and its not epidimitis, i have been through all of that already. it's something else. 99% sure. That's why i came to the idea that it might be this, but the info you post is interesting. I will look into it. I was an 80's baby, so I'm sure I was exposed to all kinds of bad stuff, but you wouldnt know it, i'm in great health, and i have no allergies. I'm not even allergic to poisin ivy.... And i have 20/13 vision.
How did you find out you were exposed to DES? I came out of the womb with a hard on...That's what they tell me, apparently i came out hard and pissed right in the nurses face.

I found out about my DES exposure from my mother.  She was an RN, and was participating in a lifetime study, where annual medical questionnaires were sent out.  The questionnaire that year included some asking about some medications taken during pregnancy and some followups.  That got her thinking, and she told me about the exposure to DES via prenatal prescription vitamins.  I actually remember the brown bottles that were in the medicine cabinet for years after one of my younger brothers (also with DES exposure and complications) was born.

I was an early 1950s baby, and the dosages for DES were massive in the early applications.

Hello,
I would suggest getting karyotyped.
I found I was mosaic klinefelter's.
I was estrogen cycling for years, and then my hormones went crazy.
Echos showed I had lesions in my testes(small).
My HCG started to go up. T and E went up.... and down (1000+)
MRI showed gadolinium positive spots.
So I opted for bilateral Orchiectomy.
Everything stopped going crazy.
I am now transitioning to the middle. Taking only E.
Very happy now.

I have had similar thing too. Duno does it mean anything. I would love to try this Karyotyping thing.
Just to know is anything odd.
The left side has like typical ball, but has like what feels like a mass of other stuff hanging off it? Like it hasn't killed me after all this time so it's not cancer or anything, like everyone always thinks.
And also between my P and my A I have a tiny hole thingy maybe an inch long and maybe a centimeter deep. It's really strange.
I'm not clinging on to the hope that I am somehow inteesex, it's just highly interesting.
At the end of the day if the brain of trans people truly is feminised or masculinised due to hormonal problems in development, it would ultimately mean we are intersex anyway
Anyway what do you think?

That's so cool
You should definetly get some genetics done.
Wish I had a little hole there. Working on it.
WPATH doesn't allow for that transition... ;-(

I am starting this though: (its a petition)
