My mom thinks that the heightened Testosterone I was exposed to before I was born due to her PCOS may have caused me to be non binary. 1. anyone else's family said this to them? 2. does anyone think it's possible that these are connected or that it could be tied to my own testosterone levels somehow?

      Technically there has been documented correlation between heightened hormones during the gestational periods where sex and gender are developed and being trans. Its theorized that gender forms the way it does in your brain due to hormonal signals from your mother's body similar to the way your reproductive organs are formed, so people with hormonal imbalances and intersex conditions have a higher chance of producing trans and/or intersex children because of the imbalanced hormone levels. This is of course still theory and still being researched but its shown promising results, and just because it might explain Why you were born trans it doesn't mean that it invalidates that you are at all. Your brain already formed that way there isn't really a way around that no matter the hows and whys.
