  • Living with the unknown "X"

    I had found it very difficult dealing with KS and society together. I've often had to deal with mistaken identity and it was taking a toll on me. I'm very masculine when. I'm talking, my gestures and even how I carry or present myself. KS has made me apart of the LGBT community and I …

He has a lot of the symptoms: no facial hair and sparse body hair, small testes, long legs and short torso, tendancy to put on weight (although he is by no means fat). He has ADHD and depression and has …

  • How small are we exactly talking?

    I suspect I might have Klinefelter's syndrome but I can't afford a karyotype at the moment. Since I read that small, firm testes are the only symptom that is always present, I am wondering if someone can describe to me how small the testes are and what do they feel like if a person has …

  • Do Some XXY's want to be Depressed?

    Occasionally I've been diagnosed with Depression, but I reject all medications to treat it as I don't believe I have Depression.  I think some people just have a different outlook on life, that psychiatrists don't often encounter, therefore don't recognise as normal. I see …

  • 47xxy and urine leakage/post void dribbling

    I have had urine leakage for about 40 years and no cause has ever been found, except one doctor told me I have a false entry into my bladder so my urine pools into 2 different areas, so my bladder is not emptied completely. First it was thought I had strictures, but after having those removed, I …

  • Do you discuss your KS?

    I was diagnosed with KS at 49. With the exception of 1 person I do not have any problems discussing my KS with anyone - I am not embarrassed by it. Do others who have KS have the same open minded opionion as me or do you shy away from talking about your KS?

Now post-treatment (nearly 2 years) sympathy and empathy do not …

  • Do chromosomes really influence feelings?

    An XXY guy might say he's more feminine than other guys, citing more than 1 X chromosome, and women usually have more than 1 X. Does it make you wonder how a female with Complete Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome can feel feminine, she only has 1 X chromosome. Surely most, if not all, these …
