The majority of women with MRKH are able to create a vagina by stretching the small amount of vaginal tissue already present. This is usually done by using specially designed smooth cylinder shaped objects


Surgery is also an option to create a vagina, but does come with its own risks, and requires long-term dilator use to maintain use of the vagina after the procedure

IVF Surrogacy

Another aspect of MRKH is infertility, however there are options for those willing to have their own biological children
