There is a great international intersex community out there. Even though the experiences of intersex people are extremely diverse, because no intersex individual is the same, intersex people often have similar experiences. Uniting with other intersex people can be of great importance for your mental health, happiness, understanding and acceptance of yourself.

Some forms of sex diversity described as DSD require health care. It is essential to be informed about your body, health, and options, so that you can make informed decisions on the kind of health care you want and need.
