There is a condition that afflicts 4,500 female infants per year. It is somewhat common yet not many people know about it. This condition is called Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome (MRKH). This is when the female is born without a [email protected] canal or a uterus. Jacqui Beck, a 17 year old from Britain, was shocked to find out that she had MRKH during a routine visit to the doctor. She was crushed and felt like she was somehow less of a woman, though this is not true at all.

Jacqui left the doctor’s office crying that day. She was told she would never have her period, would not be able to have interc0urse, and would never be able to be pregnant. There is no treatment for MRKH at this time but there are some things that can be done to help make the woman’s quality of life better. There is the option to have a [email protected] canal constructed so that the woman can have s*x. The outside of her anatomy is unchanged. However there is still no chance of becoming pregnant so the eggs can be harvested and saved for a surrogate later down the road if that is what the woman wants. Women who have MRKH still have ovaries that are fully functional and they still go through puberty as normal.

Jacqui is 19 now and has decided that she is not going to let this syndrome control her life or her future. She says that if she starts a relationship with someone she is very open and honest about it right off the bat. She says if they run, she knows that they weren’t the ones.

  1. I’ve heard of Chimera twins where the twins that were once separate fuse together again and the woman not knowing this until different parts of her dna from different organs didn’t match her child’s until further investigation but I’ve never heard of this. I’ve heard of hermaphrodites with both organs, women with two vaginas and men with two penises but never a woman with no vagina and it not being diagnosed until puberty. Diaper changing goes on and how is the sex of the infant determined with no genitalia?
