MRKH is a condition where the uterus and the vaginal canal do not form properly, resulting in a very short vaginal canal or no vagina at all in the developing female. However, the patient usually still has ovaries and normal external female anatomy. This condition, which is also called Vaginal Agenesis, affects 1 in 5,000 females. It is a randomly occurring event, i.e. it is not known to be a genetic condition nor caused by anything that the mother was exposed to during pregnancy.

Surgeons throughout the United States and World have send their patients to Drs. Miklos & Moore for this minimally invasive outpatient surgical procedure.
A MRKH patient is a genetic female with normal female chromosomes and ovaries, and therefore develops typical external female characteristics – including breasts and external vulva and vagina. The patient looks and appears like a women, because she is 100% female, however the vaginal canal and the uterus just do not fully develop inside her body. The ovaries are normal and still produce estrogen and hormones, which results in the female characteristics. Diagnosis of MRKH is usually made during adolescence when menstruation is delayed, or it may be discovered with the first attempts at having sex.
