AN Irish woman has told of her heartbreak at discovering she had been born without a vagina, cervix or uterus when she was just 18.
While she was growing up, Rebekah Knight, now 25, from Ballymoney in Antrim, thought she would start her period in her early teens like the rest of her friends.
But, when she turned 17 and was still waiting, she began to worry that something wasn’t right.
After a string of tests, doctors told her she had a rare condition called Mayer Rokitansky Kuster Hauser (MRKH) syndrome, meaning she was born without a vagina, cervix and uterus.
Rebekah, who works as an events steward, said: “As you can imagine, I was very heartbroken and shocked. I couldn’t believe this was happening to me.
