"It's so soft and huggable. It's the uterus I never got to have"
Our friend@pinkfairvis diagnosed with Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser (MRKH) after an MRI.
Have your heard about MRKH?
Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome is a disorder that occurs in females and mainly affects the reproductive system. This condition causes the vagina and uterus to be underdeveloped or absent, although external genitalia are normal👩🏻
Affected women usually do not have menstrual periods due to the absent uterus. 🩸
Often, the first noticeable sign of MRKH syndrome is that menstruation does not begin by age 16 (primary amenorrhea)👧🏻
Women with MRKH syndrome have a female chromosome pattern (46,XX) and normally functioning ovaries. 🧬
They also have normal breast and pubic hair development 💯
Although women with this condition are usually unable to carry a pregnancy, they may be able to have children through assisted reproduction🤰🏻
@pinkfairvremains cheerful and optimistic despite MRKH and finds comfort and love in our little Nerdbugs cuterus and wants to inspire women who are having the same condition, which affects mental and emotional health, and wants to spread awareness about MKRH.
Keep shining and inspiring@pinkfairv, we're here with you.
