Yes, biological: Intersex is physiological in that it means the individual was born with physical sex traits that are not distinctly male or female. A good place to start for information (in addition to your medical provider) is: https://www.apa.org/topics/lgbt/intersex.pdf and http://www.isna.org/faq/what_is_intersex. Hope this helpful.
