Yes: It is based on various genetic and/or hormonal abnormalities that can occur during the development of a fetus or early on in a baby's development. The specifics are somewhat complicated to review in this small space. If you are more interested consider a formal consultation or consider spending time researching on the internet. You can start by searching for androgen insensitivity syndrome
