In a rather incredible twist of fate, a married 44 year old man discovered that he was actually a she. Well at least part of them. They are known as “Mr Chen” who went into the doctors office complaining of stomach cramps.
They even found blood in their urine. After doctors examined “him” they found out that he was actually part female, they had been suffering from pain on and off. Further research showed that Chen had developed both genitalia including two ovaries, a uterus as well as a penis. This rather unusual birth defect has left them with an identity crisis.
“Mr Chen” went into the doctors office wearing mens clothing with short hair presenting them self more masculine in their appearance. It seems they are more comfortable being male. This condition also known as inter sex (an inborn condition) doesn’t always display in early developmental years.
There are cases where the anatomy isn’t apparent and unbelievably some people have died not knowing what their sex actually is. They were infertile adults, later autopsied. This disorder can be compared to a hermaphrodite (having both male and female sex organs).

This discovery took place at the First People’s Hospital located in Yongkang—located in the Zhejiang province of China. This area has a population of around 536,000 people with 100,000 non-resident workers in an area considered the “Hardware Capital of China”.
While this is rather rare, it does happen to people leaving them to feel really uncertain and out of place. It is estimated that 1 out of 2000 people actually suffer from something such as this. This means that the percentage is about 0.05% of the world population with ambiguous genitalia. There are various variations which being combined together make up a 1.7% overall estimation.
The same way in which nature presents to us a sex anatomy which includes either male or female body parts, the so-called “sex” chromosomes can vary quite a bit too. Our culture dictates that people are put into one category or another. People having both are struggling with their identity and even choosing which public bathroom they should enter.
Typically people who have been diagnosed with this decide upon which gender they prefer and make medical decisions to step closer towards becoming that gender. Mr Chen remains anonymous by choice for obvious reasons.
