Progestin induced virilization (

Progestin induced virilization
People born with progestin-induced virilization have XX chromosomes and may have visible genital variations at birth such as a larger-than-typical clitoris, sometimes also with fused or partially fused labia. They usually have a typical uterus, ovaries, and fallopian tubes, though their vagina may or may not have differences. This variation develops in utero as a result of the individual's parent taking progestin medication while pregnant. Being exposed to these additional hormones before birth can change how someone’s genitals develop, but it generally will not change how their own body will produce or respond to hormones later on. This means that someone born with progestin-induced virilization will usually develop features associated with a typical estrogen puberty.
