  • I was diagnosed with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome when I was 16 and had vaginal reconstruction surgery when I was 21. I am now about to get married and my soon-to-be-husband and I would like to explore having our own children. I have functioning ovaries and one normal kidney. Is it possible for someone with MRKH syndrome to have children of their own through a surrogate? Are my children at-risk to inherit this condition? Click here for answer
