    If, in embyronic development, XY chromosones have caused a release in protiens that, at three months release androgens causing the diminshment of the female mularian system, so that the featus develops male sex organs...

    If then, there is a high level of androgens, such as testosterone and dihydrotesteosterone in the mothers womb, at around the three month stage of female pre-natel development,(due to say medicne as apose to testis releasing them) why can this cause hermaphrodites development instead of the development of a penis?

    i.e why cann both the mullerian system and wolfian system co-exist if the genetic code is female, whereas the same process would normally destroy the mullerian system in a males pre-natel development?
