My story isn't a complete story yet. Officially, at italian Anagraphic Office, I'm a girl born in 1989. My body has shown me that I am intersexual; I don't think semen pollution is normal for young women. More on, in the last year my body is changing; something is developing and growing out where it wasn't before. I never had a diagnosis or medical help for this issue; I know that if I try to catch the attention of doctors, simply telling them "I think I'm intersexual" the more they will do will be sending me to a psychiatrist, specialized in people who don't want to recognise themselves. I don't think one of them will believe me. In Italy, as far as I know, there isn't any active association who helps intersexual people on the ground of medical help and assistance, neither in the legal and social one. My story is simply that I don't have a story; I don't have where to start it. Just to say, if I am a man, and if my semen is fertile, if in any way I can be the father of my son, I already know whose mother son's father I will be. This is a good reason for going on fighting, for she, for me, for our baby. Hope to send you another story, complete, the sooner possible...
