Talking about medical conditions surrounding the female reproduction system has been seen as taboo for too long. Thankfully, the discourse concerning reproductive health is becoming less off-limits, even if it is a very slow change. We are able to talk more and more about the female body and the reproduction system within it in an open manner, and people with vaginas are able to take more control over their health and learn about potential health issues, such as Rokitansky Syndrome.
1 in 5,000 women suffer from Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser Syndrome, a condition that causes the vagina and/or uterus to be underdeveloped or completely absent. Though rare, this condition can be treated. A vagina can be created with the help of surgery and dilators, and women have successfully given live birth with transplanted uteruses. You'd never know a woman had it, though; there are no external effects, as women who have MRKH otherwise develop normally through puberty. Here is everything you need to know about MRKH syndrome, and what to do if you suspect you have it.
