  • MRKH - Mayer Rokitansky Kuster Hauser Syndrome

    Anyone heard of this? Have this? Know anyone with this? I got diagnosed with it 7 years ago but only got a name for it this week. I realise it is rare and there is no specific support forums for it so I am looking for my own support network instead.

  • Can you tell us what the syndrome does or what the symptoms are? Since it is rare there maybe people out there who have the symptoms, but are having trouble getting diagnosed.

    • 1 in 5000 is rare but not really when you equate how many people there are in the world, start googling the heading and I am sure you will find alot of areas you can get support from,

      I had not heard of it until I googled it.

      But, it's suggesting that "surgery" is the last resort and it will not necessarily stop an active sexual life, in-fact some ladies have increased their sexual life thus increased the size internally of their vigina.

      My take of what I read was, it's a congenital absence of teh vagina, fallopian tubes, cervix and uterus where external vigina is normal.

      Basically born without a uterus or partial vigina.

      The search I took also said other symptons can occur such as skeletal problems or kidney problems so take lots of calcium and drink lots of water as well...

      I researched so that those whom don't know the "name" but may have the problem can answer you.

      Hope it helped.

      • Hi Nic,

        I came across your post while searching about the disease on Google. I was diagnosed with this about 10 years ago, and have since then had surgery to correct the problem. I am open to answer any questions you may have! Im 26 years old... just in case you were wondering.

        Its so nice to finally find others who have this condition.

          • Hi Nic,

            I was also diagnosed with MRKH a week after my 18th birthday, I am 26 now. I have been looking around for some information on MRKH and found two yahoo groups that are pretty informative. One is "askaboutMRKH" and the other is "mrkh-grrls". You would need to create a yahoo id and then ask permission to join the group as it is strictly for women with MRKH. I have been reading posts for the last 6 months or so and have found it to be a great group of women that range in ages and come from all over the world. Good luck! - Adena

            • Hi i am 17 and i only found out that i have got this and it would be nice if i can talk to someone who has got it. So you can tell me what it is like if you had gone through it or if you want to talk to someone who has got it. When i am trying to talk to someone about it they don't understand about it because they are not going through it and i would love to talk to someone who is or has. Also i am new to this web-site.

              So if you want to talk about it just contact me, I would like it

                  Hi everyone,

                  I just wanted to see if there is anyone else out there who would be interested in starting a support network for those with Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome. I was diagnosed at the age of 15 and I live in Canada where there is no active support network. My aim is to facilitate a dialogue for others out there (not just in Canada but internationally).

                  ****edit to remove link****

                  This is the first time I am sharing my experiences publicly and I am hoping that in doing so that I can encourage others like myself to also share their experiences. So please feel free to share your experiences...

                  Cheers,
                  AMM
