Telling prospective partner that you're intersexed

At what point in a relationship is a person who is both intersexed (and anatomically intact) and sterile, going to inform their prospective partner of this fact?

It seems like a really dumb question, but the whole thing really seems truly awkward, and I can imagine how awkward the person must feel.

Would this person have a concept of themselves as "different" in any way, if they grow up in a society without medical illustrations or photos, and they never see another same-gender person without clothes? If they don't see themselves as "different", would there be anything to disclose (apart from the sterility)?
