Hi! I was just wondering what happened between 17 and 30? My docs were adament about removing my streak gonads immediately after my diagnosis at 18. Why did yours take so long? Just curious.<br />
<br />
P.S. I didn't mind at all when I was 18 that I couldn't have children. Now that I'm 32 and see so many unfit parents popping out litters of babies, I get quite angry sometimes. I really try not to do the whole poor me thing, but it is really hard not to when you hear about druggy teens who kill their babies all over the news. I constantly tell my TV and radio, "Why didn't you just give your baby to me????"

Hi! Welcome. I am glad that you found us. Finding other's with Swyers has helped me so much. I belong to a fabulous organization AIS-DSD Support Group for Women and Families. They have a website..just do a search for AIS-DSD. I just got back from the yearly conference, held this year in Oklahoma City, OK. We had around 100 women and girls who are XY. Most AIS, but there were at least 20 Swyer Sisters there. The conference included medical professionals to help answer questions and DSD advocates that work to protect our rights. But the best part of the weekend was meeting others who have traveled a similar path to mine, and hearing their stories and sharing my own. Immensely healing! If you feel like you would benefit from a support group, check out the website and fill out the contact info sheet. If you want to know more about it, but are not ready to contact the group, feel free to email me a projectswyersATgmailDOTcom.<br />

Take care,<br />

Hello. I can understand where you are coming from. I have been wanting someone to talk to about our syndrom. There are tons of emotions we go through. I know I find myself angry that Im not little and cute like most women, i also get so upset when I see People who are bad mothers having children. Its mentally draining being different. And feeling alone. If you need someone to talk to Im here. I myself have no one in my life I can talk to. So I joind this sight in hopes to meet someone Like me. So maybe I wouldnt feel so alone with this.

When I say robbed, I mean, being able to produce offspring, I just took it for granted that it was something the Doctors would fix (I asked at 17 why I didnt get a period) and now it's like, you're going to leave behind nothing of you for the next generation, donated egg's don't cut it for me, so that's what i meant by - robbed.
