Chen Li, from a small town in southwest China’s Sichuan Province, had surgery to cure a problem with irregular urination during puberty, and for the next 20 years, he observed blood in his pee.
According to the South China Morning Post, a medical check found that Chen also has female reproductive organs such as ovaries and a uterus.
His levels of the male sex hormone androgen were below average, according to his check-up report. His levels of ovarian activity and female sex hormones, on the other hand, were equivalent to those found in healthy adult women.
Chen was found to have both male and female reproductive organs at the end. Chen, who has identified as a guy for 33 years, was disturbed by the conclusion. In June, he requested that his female reproductive organs be removed.
