Perhaps you are a parent of an XXY child and seeking answers to some puzzling questions, or perhaps the child is having a difficult time with Testosterone and you are trying to understand why. From the experiences of XXY’s who contribute here, we hope you will gain a greater insight toward the impact Testosterone can have on an XXY body and in the process come to realise hormones are not the be all and end all, that better outcomes are possible when the child is fully informed of what is expected of them. Additionally, we hope your overall experience with us will be positive and that you will take this with you and share amongst others.
Perhaps you are an XXY Adult who has been using Testosterone for many years, and you like the impact its had on your overall self, you might well describe it as the missing piece of the jigsaw and wish you had been able to access it much earlier than what you did, as, to your mind it may have offset identity and social issues you had to the point of diagnoses and your subsequent access to it.
Perhaps you are an XXY Adult who found Testosterone unsettling that it turned your life inside out and upside down, and that your doctor didn’t understand your rejection of it. Perhaps as a consequence of Testosterone, it exposed you to Gender Dysphoria and support networks you had in place to that point were totally useless in terms of understanding and support. Perhaps you were able to seek out newer networks and things are better now, or perhaps you didn’t and life is not what you would like it to be.
Perhaps you are an XXY Adult who through using Testosterone have come to reject a Male identity but, do not see yourself as Female either, perhaps Gender Queer, Non-Binary, perhaps you are still searching.
Or perhaps you are simply curious about XXY or might know of someone who is and you would like to better support that person. Perhaps you might believe yourself to be XXY.
Whatever the reason that brought you here, we hope the experience will be one of enlightenment and make you realise the broad spectrum of life that being XXY entails, that every person regardless of how they see or live their life is more than worthy of that existence and that all any of us can and should do, is live our lives to the best of our abilities wherever that should lead us.
