MRKH Syndrome is a congenital condition that affects the development of the reproductive system in approximately 1 in 5000 females (46, XX). It causes the underdevelopment or absence of the uterus, cervix & vaginal canal and may also impact kidney, skeletal, hearing, heart & mental health. Not many people or even doctors know about the syndrome, which can make it a difficult diagnosis and leave the people who have it feeling ashamed and alone.
MRKH Canada is currently the only not-for-profit organization dedicated to MRKH in Canada. Our goal is to support, empower and educate those with MRKH Syndrome, as well as healthcare providers to improve the patient experience for people with MRKH.
