Sex Development: An Overview

Get Adobe Flash player

An interactive, animated Flash introduction to the sex development of a baby before birth. Using the analogy of a branching plant, it illustrates some of the different paths that sex development in human babies can take: while most grow into typical boys and girls within the womb, others do not, and some may have urogenital conditions that make them look different from other children and may require special care. These variations are called DSDs (disorders of sex development).
