Hi

Posted by hppyyetconfused on 2010.04.03 at 09:48
I'm so happy that there is a group out there now for women that have MRKH, I have just learned the name of the wonderful thing that is wrong with my body. I also have some of the sketal issues that do occur with this and have just recently started to have kidney cysts as well as well as ovarian cysts. I don't know if this is normal or not since my doctor had no idea what this even was...my PCP nor my Gyne! I found out when I was 17 and it ripped my heart out, I'm adopted and even though I have always wanted to adopt a child I have always wanted to have 1 of my own...I know there are ways that my husband and I can do this, but it is still very hard at time for me to deal with it...I still am upset over this, and I'm so Happy that now there is a place for me to talk to others that are going though the same thing.

hey

Why no post in so long? I was diagnosed at age 17, but i have recently started reaching out to others with the MRKH. I would definitely just like someone else to talk to others who i can relate to.

I Just wanted to know,...

does anyone in this group just feels like this is a sign.
that you were not supposed to have kids.

I know that this is a bad thing to have on yourself, that you would want to have
the choice to have kids or not.
but have you ever wondered that you were not supposed to have them?

For me, Ive always said I never wanted kids. I love them to death.. just never wanted to have any, just because of life experiences. and then I found that I had MRKH.

everyone thinks I might change my mind about it down road in life. ??
anyone else feels the same or different...

Thank you!!

Hello!
I just found out the name for my issues and I am SO thankful for this community. It is so nice to know that I am not alone anymore! After nearly 10 years I have a name and am not alone. Thank you for having this community in the first place!

More info

Hi again
Question
Most of you all ask for more info - what kind of info are you looking for?
I'm no expert but since finding out that my condition actually has a name, I've gathered quite a library - down to the chromosomes responsible!! I asked my doc for a report of e'thing he has on me, and was shocked. Not only was there no mention of "MRKH", but no other synonym for it either. Not even the word "agenisis". Apparently (read online), only about 2 pages worth is dedicated to this condition throughout their studies -No Excuse in my mind, but that explains a bit I guess.
So if I can help, ask away

Hi everyone

I'm new here. Thought I'd use a letter I wrote to my parents, in April, as my introduction.  I started a "Letter Journal" a few months ago in which I write to people, without actually giving them the letters. Sounds silly - maybe I will someday...
My story begins in South Africa, where I was born 33yrs ago. I've known about my condition from a very young age. I basically grew up knowing. But I found out I have MRKH Syndrome in MARCH 2009! I dont remember how many times I've walked out doctors' rooms, even a fertility specialist's, armed with the knowledge of what I didn't have and couldn't ever have, but in March of this year GOOGLE of all things, gave "it" a name, along with all the answers to my many questions.

Anyway, here goes:

Today was an ok day.
Sat and Sun weren’t.
I’m stronger than I realise but not as strong as you think and believe I am. I feel like I’m in quicksand sometimes and even if I don’t move around (think too much) I still feel myself slipping down.
You could try to imagine what it must be like, but until you’ve been there…
I don’t begrudge anyone; I’m not envious or jealous –I cant explain really. Its like a feeling of sadness over something I’ve lost, which I never really had even; that I never really got the chance to deal with or process properly –partly cos I never really knew what IT was, or understood ... until now that is. And partly, more importantly, no one helped me. I was all alone.
I didn’t really want to talk about it for obvious reasons, but did no one realise or care enough to foresee the problem that would create??
But, as with e’thing, issue or problem ever to cross our paths, it was subconsciously (I’m assuming) decided that if we don’t talk about, confront and/or try fix things, it would go away. And that goes for e’thing our family has ever had anything to do with. Anything that may cause ripples, waves or tension and arguments, must be avoided.
Avoid confrontation at all costs. Whatever the cost.
So… I was left to deal with this unimaginable weight of a burden that I did nothing to deserve, but was punished with anyway.
So I grew up and became one of the strongest people I know, mastering the art of secrecy with an uncanny ability to recognise some not so good traits in others.
I’m very opinionated, always believing I’m right; I fight for the underdog, want to be everyones hero or saviour; I stick my nose in where it usually doesn’t belong and get involved in things that don’t concern me etc etc     -Maybe trying to make up for all the times others should have been doing the exact same thing for me- who knows!?
In my teens I walked out of a doctors rooms one day armed with the knowledge that I’d never carry a child, some thing or other didn’t develop  fully, there nothing anyone can do for me, and oh, here’s a dilator.
The facts are the facts, I get that. But I didn’t understand anything. I have no words right now for that doctor! But why did you guys not want more info/explanations?If I came to you today and asked you to explain to me what was wrong with me, would you be able to? I doubt it.
WHY AREN’T YOU ABLE TO THOUGH?

 I have MRKH Syndrome. I’m like 1 girl in every 5000. I’m one of the fortunate ones though –I don’t have hearing, kidney, heart or skeletal problems. I have 2 ovaries, but a very small uterus. There is unfortunately no light at the end of that tunnel! And I go thru the “that-time-of-the-month” mood swings regularly - this is my quicksand.

I look and feel normal most days. But I know I’m not. I know things cant get any worse but if I had to be honest and realistic, they never get any better either.
I know I'm not alone anymore at least. And like many of you have said, I could've written most of what I've read here, myself.
I’m so glad I found this site.

Hi everyone!!

    I found this site just a month ago, but I am still very exited about it.I was 14 years old (now 19) when I found out I have MRKH.I was shocked and totally confused.Just as you wrote,I didn´t feel normal and the biggest problem was and still is that I can´t have my own children.I was very shy,never talk about my problems and feeling and my dreams just disappear.I´m still not able to tell anybody about my diagnosis.

I´m not satisfied with my doctor, he always force me to do the operation but I dont want to.Right now I´m starting with the dilation and I would like to ask for some help.Please tell me more about it,how long will it last,your feelings,everything you can,I would be very grateful.I´m scared that I would have to go to the operation,If the dilation won´t work for me.I´m doing "it" for about 4months and see only little progress.

Please write some more,I will need some help:)))

thanks

Hey all..
I know that no one's updated in a long time, but I was wondering if anyone lived on the west coast. I need to know a really good doctor that isn't too far from where I live. I've known about having MRKH for a year and a half, which is not very long, but I think I've held it in for too long now.. So if there's anyone that I can talk to just to vent or get information or whatnot, that would be great :)

Thanks..
Christine

I'm new

 I just found out I have MRKH yesterday. I'm still trying to comprehend it, so if any one can help me, that would be greatly appreciated.

Hello all!  I am so excited that there are other people out there like me that I can talk to!  I knew there were others but people don't talk about it and so if I have ever met someone with the same condition I never knew about it.  Well I am new here and look forward to talking with people who can relate to what i am going through.  I have known I had MRKH for about 7 years now.  It was VERY difficult mentally to deal with it when I first learned I had the disorder.  But I couldn't have made it through without family and friend's support.  I have lots of questions!!  Look forward to chatting with some of you!  :-)
