A Hermaphrodite From Zhejiang province, China

A Eunuch was recently diagnosed as a Hermaphrodite shortly after checking into a local hospital with complaints of stomach pains. The 44 year old hermaphrodite checked in as a male and was later told by doctors that he's actually a female:

According To Online Reports:

A man who went to hospital with STOMACH ACHE was told it was period pains - and he's a woman as well. The married 44-year-old from Zhejiang province, China, was in fact experiencing period pains, doctors told him. And they were just as surprised as their patient to discover he had a full set of female reproductive organs as well as a penis - which had kept him and his wife happy for the past 10 years. Being 'Intersex' affects one in every 2,000 UK births and there are roughly 30,000 intersex people in the UK. Intersex people may be genetically female, but physiologically male. Some will be true hermaphrodites, producing both eggs and sperm. The man from Zhejiang province, China, visited his local doctor with his wife in Yongkang, where a CT SCAN showed the man had both a uterus and ovaries. A further examination revealed he had a pair of female sex chromosomes. Therefore, genetically at least, Mr. Chen was in fact a woman. Doctors said it was too late for Mr Chen to seek medical treatment for his unusual problem as it was only effective for younger people.
In articles published on and offline, the term Intersex is being used to replace the original term of Hermaphrodite. Those who were born under the term of hermaphrodite considers it to be insulting or stigmatizing and would rather the term to be banned from publication. In the UK alone there are 30,000 people living their life as a Pseudo or True hermaphrodite. For more, click here.
