I’m going to be one hundred percent honest with you, this blog may not be for everyone. My story and what I am going to share are what alot of people would call odd…
So here goes.
Everyone is born with something different about them, something that makes them unique and wonderful in there own special way. I was born with CAIS ( Complete Androgen Insensitivity) a genetic disorder in which all the parts of my body are completely female but my chromosomes (DNA) are that of a male. I am a woman, there is absolutely nothing about me that would make anyone think otherwise but the blood running through my veins has a different story to tell.
Of course because of this some things about me are different:
I can not have children :(
I do not get a period ( unless I forget my hormones)
I visit the doctor quite regularly to make sure that my hormones are consistent, and to check the density of my bones
Having CAIS makes me miserable sometimes. I worry about my future, whether I will get married. I also get upset about the fact that I cant have children quite alot
Don’t get me wrong I am quite happy with many things in my life, I have wonderful friends, a house, lots of food to eat, a very supportive and caring set of parents. I am just saying that my condition adds alot of emotional stress sometimes.
Also must add I may possibly have Swyers instead, we are still not sure. Its all so confusing
