CHILDREN ONLY DSD?
Hello Lia, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
To determine a gender in DSD abnormalities is a complex and critical decision. Apart from in the hands of parents, sex determination needs to be consulted by multidisciplinary teams such as surgeons, pediatric urologists, gynecologists, pediatric endocrinologists, neonatoologists and psychologists. In addition to consulting with the multidisciplinary science of sex determination it is also necessary to consider cultural and religious factors.
Handling of DSD in the past, surgery to have normal genitalia in cosmetics is an act that was decided as soon as possible / as soon as possible. Meanwhile, according to the development of science, the decision to determine the sex needs to consider the wishes of patients or patients, so of course surgical interventions wait until the patient can determine what he wants in accordance with the development of sex that dominates. So that early treatment can be done is to do non-surgical therapy to help parents and patients to be able to cope with social and cultural pressures related to the conditions experienced by DSD. Our advice is to consult deeper with the doctor who treats your child, and it would be better if you do a chromosome test that has not been done. Thus we can convey, hopefully answering your questions.
