Brief Answer:
Genetically speaking, she is not a female.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I am sorry to report that even though your daughter has grown up as a female, genetically she is not female. Hence the physical structures like ovaries and uterus would not be growing and she would not be having menses. At such a juncture, things might be really hard and the sexual identity she chooses for herself (or himself) would be critical.
