How many sexes are there?

How are intersex born?

The person has the chromosomes of a woman, the ovaries of a woman, but external (outside) genitals that appear male. This most often is the result of a female fetus having been exposed to excess male hormones before birth.

Does everyone start off as a girl?

Can you change DNA from male to female?

Genetics overall cannot be changed (so far, at least)

Sex chromosomes, in particular, determine whether someone will have female or male body parts. As you can see in the image below, these are chromosomes found in a typical person. We each have 23 pairs. The last pair are known as the sex chromosomes.

Can a male have female chromosomes?

Indeed it can. A gene on the X chromosome (the chromosome one typically associates with “femaleness”) called DAX1 when present in double copy in a male (XY) mouse, turns it into a female.
