Understanding intersexuality
« on: March 29, 2007, 02:03:54 pm »
Alice was 17 years old when she went to the doctor to find out why she still hadn't got her first period. He sent her on to a hospital for an internal check.

There, she was taken into a room for an ultrasound test. As the test was being administered, she saw the technician frown; he said that the machine didn't seem to be working, and they had better move to another room and try another machine. Again, there seemed to be something wrong. The technician left the room to call a doctor. The doctor looked at the machine, frowned too, and then did an internal check up. What he found was nothing. In Alice's body, he found no womb, no uterus, no ovaries. Nothing. And that's how Alice discovered she had AIS.
