Testicular Feminization | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?

This condition may be suspected when:

  • a young girl has a small groin hernia, and testicles are found in the hernia sac
  • an older girl does not menstruate, which is called amenorrhea
  • at puberty a girl develops breasts, but little or no pubic or underarm hair
  • the genitals are somewhat ambiguous, as in the incomplete form of testicular feminization
  • a young woman is infertile, and also has amenorrhea
