A Woman Who Was Born Without A Vagina Or Uterus. Millions Are Silent About This Problem!
She didn't want surgery
As Julian recounted, after receiving the diagnosis, she cried the first day, the second day, and the third day, but then she moved on. Recalling those days, she confessed that she was only 17 and still very young, so her priority was to go back to school so she could finish her education. She did not want to undergo surgery at that point; she was not ready for it. It took a long time for her to mature into this decision. It wasn't until ten years later, now an adult, that the 27-year-old woman returned to the hospital and had successful surgery. There are several ways to treat people with MRKH syndrome, depending on the type of defect. One way is to reconstruct the vagina - either surgically or with special dilators. Some women have a vaginal diverticulum and in such cases, there is a good chance of stretching the vaginal walls with dilators. Often, surgery is the only option. And so, the type of MRKH that Julian had meant that she had no vagina, no uterus, and only one kidney. Her vaginal canal was not there at all, so one had to be created.

I don't care what other people say
As she revealed, people have different feelings about what she faced and who she is. Someone once told her that she should go somewhere to pray about it. On the other hand, another person said that because the Kenyan woman is from Ukambani (a region that is stereotypically associated with witchcraft), her grandmother had something to do with it. However, the 29-year-old knows her values and insists that people can say whatever they want because what really matters is how she perceives it. And she explains that if she listened to them, it would start affecting her badly and she would start thinking that what they say is true. As she also added, when she studied biology, she understood what the doctor was saying to her the first time.
Julian Peter, 29, was born without a vagina, a cervix and a uterus, a condition called Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome. She discovered that she had the condition at the age of 17 years, something that meant she could not her own biological children.#tukonewspic.twitter.com/praRFhinTZ— Tuko.co.ke (@Tuko_co_ke) January 7, 2020
