Dear MRKH Sisters – We Can Make A Difference :) xxx

Morning! 

I am absolutely blown away by the positive feedback I was given when I shared my blog on the MRKH Facebook groups 🙂 I feel so blessed and privileged to be part of the MRLH community and honestly do not know where I would be if I didnt know them today. Even though I am still choosing to remain anonymous, my hope is that one day I’ll find the strength to use my real name in creating awareness of MRKH. I still possess fear of being treated differently by others who know my real name, I know I shouldnt still feel like this but hopefully one day the fear will disappear. In high school, I kept it a secret from so many as I only told a select few. I did this partly because I was embarrassed and felt shameful by having MRKH. I also did this as a boy in my grade found out he was infertile and told his girlfriend, who then managed to spread his secret across the grade. People laughed at him and pityed him, I did not want this for me. Luckily I made it through high school with no major problems and am now at university:)

I have heard so many other stories from other girls who had problems in high school when people found out about them. The most embarrassing part for me, and I think most other women also, is that we have an incomplete or non-existent vaginal canal. Using a dilator was absolutely humilating for me as I was being forced to explore my sexuality at an earlier age than I would have liked. Anyway, I heard some stories of girls being called hermaphrodites, girls having to change schools as they were being ridiculed and also girls struggling to let themselves have a relationship in general from the fear of a man not accepting them. I feel so sorry for those girls who had it rough, as I had a much easier ride than most. I have dealt with my MRKH for only 5 years so the only advice I can give is that it will get easier to deal with. I mostly struggled internally and kept a lot to myself. In the last couple years I have been more open in talking about MRKH which has really been a saving grace for me. And I also know that the women from the Facebook group are there for support when I feel I can only speak to those who understand what I’m going through. 

My Australian friend Ally has created a new MRKH foundation for Australia called Sisters For Love which is an absolute saving grace in creating awareness as well as the opportunity to chat and meet with fellows sisters more often. Ally has been such an inspiration to me and has helped me in so many ways. She was the one who organised the first ever MRKH meeting in Australia at the Sydney Royal Women’s Hospital and I will always be so grateful that she did that. I was given the opportunity to chat with women like myself and finally feel that I’m not going through this alone 🙂 Without Ally, I probably would not have gotten that opportunity 🙂 

I’m sorry that this post rambles on a bit, I’m going to attribute it to lack of sleep and an early rise this morning lol. I am going to try and write in this blog every couple of days and I’ll talk about a range of things. I think this blog would be quite boring if I just spoke about MRKH for every single post! Or maybe not =P
