Complications of ambiguous genitalia may include:

  • Infertility. Whether people with ambiguous genitalia can have children depends on the specific diagnosis. For example, genetic females with congenital adrenal hyperplasia usually can get pregnant if they so choose.
  • Increased risk of certain cancers. Some disorders of sex development are associated with an increased risk of certain types of cancer.
