Intersex people are individuals born with any of several variations in sex characteristics including chromosomes , gonads , sex hormones or genitals that, according to the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights , "do not fit the typical definitions for male or female bodies". Sex assignment at birth usually aligns with a child's anatomical sex and phenotype. The number of births where the baby is intersex has been reported to be as low as 0. The words used to describe intersex people are contested, and change over time and place.

Complete androgen insensitivity syndrome CAIS is an AIS condition that results in the complete inability of the cell to respond to androgens. It is at the seventh week of gestation that the bodies of unaffected individuals with the XY karyotype begin their masculinization: i. This process is triggered by androgens produced by the gonads , which in individuals with the XX karyotype had earlier become ovaries, but in XY individuals typically had become testicles due to the presence of the Y Chromosome. The cells of unaffected XY individuals then masculinize by, among other things, enlarging the genital tubercle into a penis , which in females becomes the clitoris , while what in females becomes the labia fuses to become the scrotum of males where the testicles will later descend. Individuals affected by CAIS develop a normal external female habitus , despite the presence of a Y chromosome, [1] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] but internally, they will lack a uterus , and the vaginal cavity will be shallow, while the gonads, having been turned into testicles rather than ovaries in the earlier separate process also triggered by their Y chromosome, will remain undescended in the place where the ovaries would have been.

Intersex is an umbrella term for differences in sex traits or reproductive anatomy. Intersex people are born with these differences or develop them in childhood. There are many possible differences in genitalia, hormones, internal anatomy, or chromosomes, compared to the usual two ways that human bodies develop.
Intersex is a group of conditions where there is a discrepancy between the external genitals and the internal genitals the testes and ovaries. The older term for this condition is hermaphroditism. Although the older terms are still included in this article for reference, they have been replaced by most experts, patients and families. Increasingly, this group of conditions is being called disorders of sex development DSDs.
