Comments: Thanks for your inspirational website. (And thank you for corresponding with my friend, Sherrie Lynee.) Ross is 12 years old. I am his father (Bill).

We're looking forward to going to the conference in Chicago in August. We both need to meet successful people who have KS.

My immediate concern is Ross' complaining of pains in his arms and legs, which we understand can be caused by KS. Will the HRT take care of this? His mother and I will now put pursuing this next step in his care and development on the front burner.

Thank you!

Comments: I love reading your story

My son born 14th June 1998 was diagnosed when he was one. I knew when he was about six months old there was something not quite right. He is now approaching 5 and is very very hard work. His speech is quite bad and can be very violent. He attends school and has a helper.

Kind regards

Comments: Your website has a lot of helpful information. Thank you so much. My son was diagnosed with 47xxy at birth which initially came as quite a blow to my husband and me. The impression we got from the doctors is that they haven't dealt with very many cases of this, especially from birth, so we have been trying to find as much info we can on the subject. Our son has already started testosterone injections which we hope will help with some of the symptoms. Now that we are better informed, we are dealing with everything quite well for now and hopefully will be able to help our son deal with whatever he may face in the future.

Thank you so much again for your story and I would really like to know if there is anybody else with 47xxy or klinefelters in Newfoundland. Please feel free to contact me.

Until now, I never thought of anything but LD's and unexplained lifelong behavior problems. He just recovered from a severe illnes that required him to see a Urologist. The doctor noticed he had small testicles. I was looking on the internet for possible causes of this when I landed on your site. I also have an 8 yr old son, whom to our surprise ended up with the same speech delay and LD's. I will definitely have them both checked out for KS. This has been so enlightening! Thankyou!

I am 68 and wish I could tell about my life to someone, but
I think it would be very difficult. The most difficult feeling to deal with in my life was, "fear." I was always afraid of things that other people found exciting. I remember that (at high school age) I was afraid to use the telephone the first time. I also was afraid to drive a car and was terrified when my dad told me he was going to give me a car.
Oh well, I just wonder if there are others who experienced this terrible fear of everything when they were young.

Thanks again for your story.

It follows that one would expect a higher incidence of 47XXY amoungst fraternal twins, as opposed to the general population. My question is this. How many of you 47XXY folks were fraternal twins?

Comments: Just recently discovered your site. Although I do not have Klinefelter Syndrome, I am intrigued by the condition, in so far as it offers a window to an increased understanding of human sexuality and personality. To the extent that the condition occupies an intermediate position in what is normally thought to be a bipolar male-female world it would seem to offer insight into what it means to be male or female. I would be interested in any explanation of gender dysphoria as this concept seems incomprehensible to those not afflicted with K.S. It occurs to me that this condition might explain some of the seemingly unexplainable aspects of human behavior. I present this hypothetical to those of you who are experiencing this condition: would it not seem to be the case that Michael Jackson, the rock star has 47XXY ? How about the actor, Christopher Walken?

Comments: Bravo Stefan!!

You have done an excellent job. This is exactly what I have been looking for most of my life. This is a chance to hear from someone else with Klinefelter's syndrome. It's awesome to see someone with this condition not be held back by it, but rather use it as a motivator to achieve his ambitions and help so many people along the way. I am 43 years old, married and have a wonderful step-daughter. I have a sales job with a major American hardware retailer and get along very well with my co-workers. It's taken me a long time to reach this point in my life. I use humour as a coping mechanism. I love to make my peers laugh. I always knew that somehow I was a little bit different. I was picked on and harassed constantly as a child going to school. Puberty was a nightmare. I never started shaving until I was about twenty-five. My family, as loving as they were, didn't know how to cope with K.S., so inevitably it got swept under the carpet. You know "If we don't know what it is, it will go away". I know what the lack of self-esteem feels like and the lack of self confidence. I experience mood swings, anger, frustration and the general feeling of just feeling blah. I have come to accept myself much more now. I have a more positive outlook. I took testosterone injections for years and then I was on a testosterone patch for a short time. Now I use an androgel cream that I rub on, that goes immediately through my skin to my bloodstream. It's painless. I take a small prescribed dose every day, so my moods are relatively constant and generally feel better than with the shot. For those that experience erectile difficulties there is something called Papaverine/Rogitine/Prostin 8. It is very effective and does not leave one feeling sick. I have read that a number of people with Klinefelter's are gifted computer operators/programmers. My gift isn't with computers, but rather numbers and factual information. I can remember dates, phone numbers and events precisely as they happened years ago. I now look forward to each day and the challenges that it brings. Please feel free to contact.

Comments: Hi Stefan,

What a great web site about KS - there must be something about discovering yourself at 25 years that you have KS, as it was about this time, I found out that I was different. I sort of had a sixth sense about it, but didn't know how to find out about the condition.

It's pleasing to know that some of my actions that I have encountered over the years, can be explained as being part of the KS condition.

I live in Sydney, Australia where there isn't any KS organisations to "spread the word", so it is very grateful that your web site and your story provides all KS sufferers with knowledge and understanding that they are not alone.

Keep up the good work, and take care, Peter

I am inspired that you can talk about your problems as i find it extremely hard to talk of mine to anyone including my loving fiance.The medication in form of patches has worked up until two weeks ago when i found out my level had dropped drastically.My biological father was an American, but i have had no contact.I am about to be adminestrated with injections and so wish that it works cause i feel so low and so depressed about the most silly things. I admire you for your courage for which ican not grasp as yet but wish to in the future.I still get very upset about not being able yo father children, but still know i have to accept this fact of life.I have seen so many therapists since the age of 11, but this has not helped my long term grip of life.I wish to seek further help, and find it hard to talk about my problems, but hope and wish someone can help me gain control once again. Good luck to you in the future and everyone else with the same challenge we have been given to conquer XXY and all other forms of KLINEFELTER SYNDROME.Owen.

I live in Queensland, Australia and support groups here are not so informative as those that you have been involved with in USA.
I was also aged twenty five when diagnosed with KS, I am now fifty four, suffered two strokes three years ago,that have left me with 60% loss of eye sight and a serious loss of immediate memory retention.I am also a diabetic. These days I am on a Disability Pension, but would still prefer to be working, I believe that I still have something to offer. Don't worry I am not forgetting that there are some poor souls in the USA and other parts of the world of recent times that are much worse off than I, being alive is a bonus. Perhaps we could correspond by e-mail at some stage. I admire you, keep up the good work.

Comments: Hello Stefan,
What a revelation to read your site!
I am a retired nurse who is particularly close to a frail uncle and his son, my cousin. My uncle has 46/47 mosaicism and his son has 47 K.S. They both live happy and very full lives. My uncle is not as active now as he is in his mid 80's and has developed emphysema and gout.
My uncle had a long and strong marriage. He also has a daughter. She does not try to understand my uncle and simply argues with him. Consequently they don't see each other as much as usual. Possibly that is one of many reasons that my uncle and cousin ring me so often. We live approx 50 miles apart and I am not very mobile for health reasons but we speak on the phone between 3 and 20 times per week.
My cousin is a voracious reader and has a particular interest in the American Civil War. He has made several trips to the U.S. for holidays and loves it.
All good wishes,
Gail Whelan

Its great to know that there are others out there. I am 21 years old at Adelphi University in Long Island, New York. I am from St.louis, MO. I still have yet to meet another with Kleinfelters. i love what i am. I would like to start another group around the long island area and the st.louis area. if there is any information or ideas of helping to create this group, that would be very much appreciated.
thank you very much. to all the parents out there and the boys/men that have this, be supportive as possible. give them 110% out of 100 everyday. My parents helped out as much as possible, without them being so understanding, i don't know if i would have made it to where i am now. Mom and dad, i love you both more than anything. All i have to say is just be there for them. And if you are a friend, just be there. that is the key to life. Friendship throughout the family and friends is the way all of us should be.

We conversed sometime ago. Your doing a great job of the site and helping others to understand themselves. I have read most of the stories and can relate to many of them. It was a struggle for me going through my teen age years. I am doing fine now, have come out to who I am. I am proud of who I am. Life has given me many challenges and I have grown so much.

Your site is excellent, I do hope all is well with you and your loved ones. Take care. Mort

Comments: Hi Stefan,
Thank God, I found your web page. I don't think you remember me. But I will just move over to a few details of mine. I am 25 years old and work as a Technical Writer for an international company in the middle-east. I was diagnosed having 47xxy at the age of 13. That too after spending a lot of time submerged in depression due to regular teasing from my fellow classmates for being different. I had an incomplete masculine body build, and social as well as school learning problems. Moreover, I found that my breasts were having some pretty unusual developments too. I was given a course on testosterone and even today I just don't feel anything towards either sex. I don't have a lot of friends, nor any girl friends yet. I have a bit of a large frame weighing just 87 kg with 6.6 foot in height. But I don't know why I have a strange passion for computers. I can say I am quite good at my profession. Anything on computers, it is like a birth trait. Truly fascinating. But when I cam to your site, I found about other people like me who have the same skills may be more than me, of course. I like your site and the material contained. It brings relief and hope. Thanks! For your taking your personal time to bring us all together as a Family and educate us on the ways to overcome depression and a feeling of guilt. Thanks Stephan! .

Life has been rough, and I've sometimes referred to myself as an android. Out of all the extra chromosome syndromes, I'm grateful it was Klinefelter and not something worse.

Good luck to you guy and hang in there. Life isn't fair.

Comments: Hi Stefan, we have emailed about a year ago and I have accidentally found your site again. You are doin g great with your informative site and helping so many of us who want to learn more about our ks syndrome and how to live out our lives day by day...not easy but we are persevering.
I was diagnosed when I was 35. I was fortunate that apart from having reduced genitals, less musculare development, less body hair; behavourily, usually weakly heterosexual. A homosexual (13.5% ks men are homosexual ..this percentage is much higher than in the general population of about 2%).
Through medical research it has been discovered that most gays have gay relatives on the maternal side of their families).I didn't make friends easily...I tried but the boys were not interested in befriending me, neither were the girls. I was teased, bullyed and picked on by my peers in state school and the whole school in high school. Regardless of these set backs and my brother telling me that I was queer, resulting that though we shared the same bedroom he would have nothing to do with me. I went to University and graduated and I am enjoying my single un-partnered life. Being gay I have experienced a great deal of rejection as most of my would be partners saw the exterior and not what was between my ears. Whatever we may look like, we will all grow older and change in our looks but our inner self grows and enlarges and becomes beautiful. Yes depression is our shadow but chins up guys
we all should be proud of the people we have become. John.

Comments: Stefan,
What a great site, story and inspiration!! My boyfriend, whom I live with, just recently found out that he has Klinefelter Syndrome. Because of obvious characteristics, I had suspected that this was the case for some time, but we just got the chromosome analysis back. He is experiencing the same relief you discuss in your story, as he now has an explanation for some of the things he has thought or felt throughout his life. If you read this, I would greatly appreciate an e-mail back. If you can share some of the coping mechanisms that you came up with to help with some of the learning issues you had, that would be fantastic. Oddly, he, too, is involved in the computer field, and you remind me of him to some degree.
Also, how are the testosterone treatments going for you?
Thanks Again, and Good luck to you and your family!

My oldest son was born with medical problems (cephallic lipoma, and absense of the corpus collusm), I myself have my own share of medical problems as well. Your story proves to me, that no obstacle is too big to overcome because its just that, an obstacle. It's meant to be worked around and not overwhelmed by.

I will take your inspiration and push forward, around, under... which ever direction has to be taken not to let an obstacle take over!!!

Comments: RUSSIAN EXPERIENCE OF TREATMENT OF KLINEFELTERíS SYNDROME.

Dear Sirs,

Since 1971 in Russia in the scientific - clinical centre of ņndrology and transplantation of endocrine organs under the direction of professor Igor Kirpatovsky were conducted the development of new methods of treatment of chromatine-positive variants of Klinefelter`s syndrome . The transplantation of donor testicle was made to more then 200 patient with 46,xy/47,xxy and 47,xxy variants. In 25 cases the transplantation of cells of testicle, hypophysis, hypothalamus were made.
Operationed patients were examinated surveyed in the early and late postoperational period. The results were compared with the control group of patients which were receiving just synthetic hormone therapy (the number of patients - 12).
It was found out, that operation of the transplantation of donor testicle leads to normalization of the hormonal phone, sexual habitation and rehabilitations, positive changes of a phenotype on the terms up to 10-12 years without additional reception of hormonal preparations. Application of the special circuit during 3 months after the operation has allowed to reach(achieve) 100% implantation of transplants. The transplantation of cells gives less marked on duration effect up to 3-5 years, however is more easy transferred by the patient.
Iíll be pleased to provided any further information. Please do not hesitate to contact me.


Yours faithfully,

But since then I caught a brief show on tv one night where you were on it talking about Klinefelter's Syndrome and well to make a long story short I didn't get to see enough about it but I do remember you real well. Your like a SUPER HERO!!! to some of all of us who has Klinefelter's Syndrome. I wish that I just had the same ambishion that you have in doing what you have done to help people I admire you alot. If there has been a book printed about Klinefelter's Syndrome please send me some information on how to obtain a copy of it. Once again thanks for being there for a bunch of people. Oh by the way I have the most common one 47xxy and found out about it five years ago. I'd like for you to answer me one question though. If I would have found out that I had this when I was hitting puburty is there a great possibillity that my life would have been and different? If you could please help me into understanding this problem and why am I so different than other men.

Yours Truely,

Comments: I read your story and was impressed1 I am a 47 y.o. male who was diagnosed with Klinefelters Syndrome about 10 years ago. I was in the National Guard at the time and was complaining of severe headaches. I also had severe mood swings and did not have a lot of friends,a Loner. The V.A. in Portland,Ore. examined me and discovered that I had a Pituatary Adenoma Tumor. It produces a lot of Prolactin and has thrown my whole hormonal,immune system out of whack. When I was a teenager,I would'nt shower after gym class with the other boys,consequently I failed P.E. My teacher called a conference and informed my parents that I refused to take showers. When asked why,I told them that the other guys said vulgar,sexually explicit stuff to me,my parents and teachers asked,Why? I told them that I had breasts like a girl.My mother told me not to worry about that,that all men develop those after they reach a certain age and weight. She said even your Dad has them. I never questioned my Dad,because of the resulting embarassment. The V.A. said that I had the Pituatary Tumor since I was at least 14 y.o. Things were not the way they are now,back then it was different,you did'nt talk about such things. My Dad was fairly open to talk too,but he worked away from home a lot as a geologist. My mother was'nt very understanding back then or now. I just recently saw my Neurologist and told them that my Gynesmastia has gotten worse,we did some tests and they may increase my Parlodel and Testosterone levels. I hope so! I've been married 4 times,had 1 child,then I was told by a Doctor that I am infertile. I have been living in a successful relationship with a woman who has s son with severe behavioral,ADHD problems,she was involved with someone long before I came along. She looks out for me. Here in the last few years,I've discovered that If I get a mosquitoe bite or a scratch,it turns into an ulcerated sore,very painful. The doctors say that is happening,because my immune system is damaged. I have to use anti-bacterial soap to do personal hygiene. I view myself as a freak! A man with a womans breasts. I am straight as an arrow. My lady tells me not to worry,but even she has noticed that I am getting bigger. It is a total embarassment to me. In the summer,I don't go around with my shirt off. I am opening up here to all. I am not saying this to get compassion or sympathy,just to let others know that they are not alone. I have also been diagnosed with chronic schizophrenia since 1991. I take meds. and see my doctor for regular checkups. I discovered that as I got older,certain things that were once important to me,no longer hold value. I am a firm believer in pursuing your dreams,bettering yourself and helping others. Since moving to the Midwest from Oregon in 1995,my life has changed for the better. I got a chance to help people who have a mental illness by becoming a Peer Support Specialist/Consumer Advocate. Before the program was terminated,I did a lot of in-home visatations,held classes in skill development and self-advocacy. And started a support group. I have attended 3 Mental Health conferences back here and am still considered an active Consumer Advocate. I am a Writer and will soon be developing my idea of a dream job,Music Composition/Production/Recording Engineer. I want to record and sell my own unique style of Electronic Music Compositions,learn how to be a recording engineer and eventually open a studio in my community. God allowed me to go through all of those rough times in my life,so I could be the kind of person I am today. I believe that nothing happens to us by chance! God's gift to us is Life,our gift to God is what we do with that Life. I have my Musical talents and abilities because of Him! We all have something to share with others,we can all learn from each other.
Thank You for allowing me to open up and share what I have been holding back for so long.
Have a great,"Cool" Summer!! :)

I found out that I had 47xxy when I was 40 and thats when I started to get the jab. I am now 49 and I am sick of the jab so I am on the pill instead. Any way got to go, if any one wants to get in touch, its ok with me.

I am a grandmother of a young teenager, 18 yrs. who graduates this June. His mother, my daughter, just called this week to inform me that my grandson is being tested for this condition KS, and prior to this call, I had never heard of this very sad condition. Thanks to you, and all of the responses I have read, I know their is hope and help for my family and especially my grandson. I am going to email, right now,to my daughter, your web site. Is there anyone in the specialists field, that you would recommend in the Virginia area? Also, is this an inheirited disease? My twin sister and I, both have SLE (or a close variation of this auto-immune disease and wonder if their is any relation? Heretofore, we do not know of any other relatives having this disease, but that is one of the questions very much on my daughter's mind? Again, thank you so very much, and I wish you and your family the very best that God may continue to bless you all.

I would just like to ask if you have any other sites that you think would be a great help to us and our researching about KS please notify us! Thank you so much for sharing your story with us!
Sincerely, Tiffany

Comments: Hi Stefan, I know exactly how you have been feeling.
I was diagnosed with KS when I was 25 years old while working in New Zealand. All through my younger days I always felt on the outer with everyone. I felt different in so many ways but could never put my finger on the reason why. What disappoints me most is that my Parents did not seem to realise that I was perhaps different from other boys my age. I suppose in those years (1950 to middle 60's, not many people were aware of KS), so KS went undetected until 1973 in NZ. After finding out so much about KS on the Internet, I can now relate to a lot of things that I have read about and realise why I felt the way I did for so many years. Feel free to contact me, I have yet to converse with anybody else who has KS. I am presently living in North Queensland, Australia.

Since the diagnosis though, she has been most supportive and considerate to my "problems".Keep up the good work and may God bless you and your new family.

Comments: Hello.

I have been taking medication for my Klinefelter's for sometime now. However, the biggest thing Ifind about the condition and the medical system in Canada is that people up here seem to be scared of those that are different then themselves. And because of this they label and discredit us. Actually, as an example the Manitoba Medical system labels a genetic condition as being caused by inbreeding. And because of this results in poorer medical care.

What I like about Stefan and his information is there is no labels, we have a equal footing with him.

I know everyone is not the same. While you had testosterone injections, he has a high level. I do not know his signature of x and y. Information is much more available now on web vs 1989. Thanks!

My son who is now 15 was diagnosed 1 year ago with KS
It has been a great help to finally know why he is different than other boys. And also to know why he has always had a hard time in school. I have a question for you. Last April he had a grand mal sezier. Do you know if this is something that occurs because of the KS or not.
If you could write to us that would be good. I have a computer at home but can not afford internet services.

I was happy to find this out while I am still somewhat young (sooner would have been better) I can now take the therapy and get on with my life.

I would really appreciate it, if I could talk with someone who has taken the testo. therapy. I just started the therapy last week and I have many-many-many questions.

Comments: I will read your story soon. I found out part of my story at 26, and the KS part at 32. When I learned I would never be a daddy, my life felt over. Nam was hot and I was a military officer. I volunteered. The idiots in personnel sent me to Iceland. So I did not get my honorable way out. Now I must accept and be creative. There are no roadmaps. I know how I feel. I'm not too sure how to find women who stay after they hear the story. I have already experenced the pain of loss of deep married love. The Feb 2001 issue of Modern Maturity details what happens when a man does not satisfy. Per a research psychologist at GA Tech, most young women who are spouses of low/no testosterone men search elsewhere for what they feel they deserve as young women, while they are still young.

I am a man and so r all of u. The trouble with us people is that we can't have children. But so are thousands of couples around the world. I have not undergone any treatment till now except for HR for a month or so. I have been depressed during my teenage. But now I am quite confident thanks to the God who is my best friend. I take my life as it is and do not worry much. I eat healthy food, do exercise and feel happy. Believe me I am not on testosterone replacement therapy. All u need to do is to eat honey with bananas and exercise regularly. And yes, u've need to find a mission for urself to live for. God bless all.

Comments: Hi my names David and i was diagnosed at the age of 18 with KS. I am 46 now and have had a very rough time at life thru the early years. I got involved with drugs at the age of 13 and thru school did very poorly. When I was 17 i develpoed a deep vein thrombosis in left leg and it broke free and i devoloped a pulminary embolism, need less to say i was in hospital for 2 weeks and after that thru the years had over 100 blood clots in my legs and 5 pulminary embolisms.
I was diagnosed at 18 while in the county hospital with another blood clot in leg and they noticed about the size of my scrotum and asked if i wanted to stay another 2 weeks to do a study to see why it was this way tho they suspected it to be KS as my wing span is greater then my height. Anyways to make a very long story shorter,I got clean off drugs and alcohol when i was 33 and go to NA 12 step program been clean and sober for 13 yrs now.
I am 6'5 and just recently had surgery for gastric bypass as i had heart failure in July and was weighing close to 500 pounds, the surgery went fine but many complications incured afterwards and stayed 5 weeks in hospital just coming home the day before Thanksgiving and getting stronger everyday.
I thank God for this place to come and share about my dealings with dealing with KS thanks for being here Love you all and God Bless David

Comments: Hello there. My name is Jonathan and I am a 28 year old KS "male"....I put that in quotes because even though I have all the attributes of a man I do not feel like one and never have. I was diagnosed when I was 15 due to an abnormally slow developmental rate at puberty and take Sustanon "250" shots every 30 days. I am also just coming to terms with the fact that I too will never have a girlfriend. From the exterior people assume that I am a gay male because of the feminization. I also never "chat up" women because I feel a fraud. They may acknowledge me as a man but I know deep down that I am not so I feel like I am cheating them on some level. Some lesbians have been attracted to me sexually but why have me when they can have the real thing? Aside from these little trifles I am relatively happy and appreciate each and every day that I am alive. Love and Light to you all, XXXXXxxxx.

Comments: Thank you for sharing your experiences with others that have the same syndrome. I am 48 and have had a pretty productive life even though i felt so different from everyone else. I knew something was wrong aroung 12 or 13 but was too ashamed and embarrased to say anything to my parents. My last year of high school I finally mentioned something and they sent me to the University of Minnesota. They tried many things to help me and some of it really helped. I still felt so alone and ashamed. I felt that I was not a (man). I guess that I was really looking for trouble when I went into the army. I really put up a tough guy facade and hid my undersized penis and testicles,( supposed maleness) so i wouldnt be laughed at. While I was in I asked to be treated and they started giving me injections. I have continued them through the V.A. here in Minnesota. I am surprised how up on the subject they are. Life hasnt been easy. I am resigned to the fact that I cant have children of my own. Have had serious boughts of depression and married a woman with kids already. My advise is to not settle, we may have something wrong with us but we are still OK. I really felt good reading your guest book. I knew there had to be others out there but had not ever seen or talked to anyone that has this syndrome. God Bless
