A woman form Hubei province who went to hospital to check why she never had a menses was stunned when her doctor revealed that she was actually a man.
Ms. Zhang is a 25-year-old teacher from Jinmen city in Hubei. She is good looking and has many male admirers. But what bothered her was that she never had a period, for which a local clinic told her she was suffering from amenorrhea, according to Shanghai Daily.
Recently, when her family urged that she has reached marriage age and she was worried that she might not have her baby, Zhang then decided to take another examination in a big hospital in Wuhan city, capital of Hubei province.
To her surprise, a B-ultrasonic scan result from the hospital showed that she was intersex. “She had no womb but there was a vagina and two ball-shaped shadows in her abdomen, which doctors believed are her retained testicles,” Shanghai Dialy reported.
It also explained why she never had a period, as she is biologically a male. Although she looks like a woman, her chromosome indicates she is a man.
Zhang now has undergone a surgery to remover her retained testicles. Her doctor said, she can have normal sex life but she will not be able to conceive a child.
