  • Do people with MRKH have periods? Why/ why not?
    Women with MRKH do not have a period, this is due to being born with an underdeveloped or nonexistent uterus. Woman with MRKH typically do still have normally functioning ovaries so although they physically do not get a period, a monthly cycle will still occur and the eggs released from the ovaries are reabsorbed into the body. - Laura x
  • What kind of doctor do people with MRKH see?
    People with MRKH will start at a paediatric gynaecologist if you are diagnosed while you are still a child. They are the best equipped to take you through dilation and treat your MRKH. Then when you get older you will go to a normal Obgyn as long as you don’t have any other residual symptoms. - Madeline x
  • What is MRKH?
    MRKH is a congenital medical condition that affects the development of female reproductive organs. During fetal development, the müllerian ducts form into the uterus and vaginal canal. People born with MRKH have an underdeveloped or absent uterus and vaginal canal, which is why it is also commonly called müllerian agenesis. It is estimated that 1 in 4,000-5,000 females have and are diagnosed with this condition. - Lily x
  • Can people with MRKH have penetrative sex? If so, how?
    Yes! Penetrative sex is 100% possible with MRKH. Some women do have to dilate or have surgery to create a vaginal canal first before sex is possible however. - Nicole x
  • Can people with MRKH have children? If so, how?
    Yes 100%, people with MRKH can have children but we cannot get pregnant. We can have children by adopting, or through a surrogate as we typically have ovaries so produce eggs, we would need someone else to carry our baby for us. Or, we can have a womb transplant which allows us to carry our own baby. These are not commonplace and are still in trial stages, and are not in the UK yet. - Lauren x
