reasons for intersex or hermaphroditism

I am looking for a plausible reason for my character to be intersex. Characteristics I know: her sexual organs look normal, but at puberty her chest never developed and she has never menstruated. I was looking at CAIS, or complete androgen insensitivity syndrome, but am not sure I'm accurately describing her symptoms if that would be the case. Any help or advice anyone could give me in this would be appreciated.
I am also looking for other side effects that would come as a result of her condition, such as, for example, lack of sensitivity in her clitoris or whether or not she would discharge.
