Kolkata Woman Discovers She Is A Man During Treatment Due To A Rare Condition


A 30-year-old woman who went to the hospital to get herself treated for an abdominal pain got the shock of her life when the doctors revealed her that she was actually a Man and not a Woman.

The woman (Man) had been leading a normal life until today as the shocking revelation turned her world upside down.

The unnamed person is a resident of Birbhum in West Bengal and had visited Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Hospital with abdominal pain.

After tests were conducted, the reports diagnosed her with a rare condition which is called as ‘Blind Vagina’ where there is a very short vaginal passage.

The doctors also went ahead and conducted a Karyotype test which revealed that she had XY chromosomes found in a Male rather than XX chromosome found in a Female.

Clinical oncologist Dr Anupam Dutta and surgical oncologist Dr Soumen Das later discovered she had undescended testicles inside her body.

Dr Dutta said, ” We conducted clinical examinations, after she complained of abdominal pain, and found out she has testicles inside her body. A biopsy was conducted, following which she was diagnosed with testicular cancer, also called seminoma.”

The doctors termed her condition as Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome where a person is genetically male but possesses the characteristics of a woman.

Right from her voice, genitalia and developed breasts she totally resembles a woman, however, she has missing uterus and ovaries.

It is being said the woman is married for 9 years and was leading a normal life with her husband, she was also trying to conceive but she failed due to the missing ovaries and uterus right since her birth.

Due to the missing ovaries, she never even experienced menstruation in her life.

The woman had come along with her husband and the doctors are trying to counsel the duo at the moment.

The woman is also undergoing her chemotherapy for the treatment of her cancer and the doctors have termed her condition as stable.
