I am living in Salalah, Oman, now 18 years old. I was born with ambiguous genital and my parents raised me as a boy. I note I am somewhat different from other boys from the very young but I was ashamed to ask my parents about that. My parents were reluctant to talk with me on that and my father always reminded me I was a boy whenever I was doing something in his mind which was girlish, such as playing dolls with my younger sisters.
My breasts began to grow when I was nearly 14. My first period came when I was 15. One day in class there was bleeding between my legs and the school sent me to hospital. After examination the doctors found that there are uterus and ovaries inside my body. With further examination they found that I have xx chromosome. The doctors and the school and the ulama had discussion with my parents and me and suggest that I should have the surgery to rectify my abnormal genital. They requested me to live as girl as my true gender is female and my body-shape are also turning female which made me not suitable to continue to live as a boy. After a few months of counseling, my father and I adopted their view and agreed with them.
I was transferred to a girl school and began to live as a girl, at the age of 16.
Now I have lived as a girl for nearly 2 years and am scheduled to have the surgery in this month.

Physically my urethra goes through the penis-like tube and I am able to stand to urinate. I can get erection and hard but the penis-like tube would not grow a much during erection.
