How do I manage my androgen insensitivity syndrome on a daily basis?

People with androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) may have different ways of handling their condition on a daily basis. In all cases, it's important to take care of your physical and emotional health. Treatment is one important part of daily management of AIS. This may involve estrogen replacement therapy that's taken in a daily pill or through a patch worn on the skin. The emotional effects of AIS may be more difficult to cope with than the physical ones, so it's important to take care of yourself mentally and emotionally. There are many support groups, counselors, and psychologists that can help people with AIS, so don't be afraid to find and use those resources. It also may be helpful to talk with family and friends about the feelings and challenges of coping with AIS.
