Are persons born with ambiguous genitals usually happy with their assigned sex?

Most persons born with intersex conditions are happy with their assigned sex, just as most persons born without intersex conditions are. Rarely, persons with intersex conditions find that their assigned sex does not feel appropriate; these individuals sometimes decide to live as members of the other sex. The same thing can occur, of course, in persons without intersex conditions. There is very little information about which intersex conditions, if any, are associated with an increased likelihood of dissatisfaction with one’s assigned sex.
