Since I was diagnosed with MRKH in 2000 when I was 14, I have only ever been to Specialists & Surgeons, never have I been to a “regular gynecologist.” I had a hysterectomy in November 2009, and now decided I should probably visit a “regular gynecologist” regularly, and also for when my husband and I start our surrogacy journey (hopefully next year?).
So I had an appointment with a new gynecologist this morning that was recommended by 2 co-workers. I spent 30 minutes filling out all the paperwork and when the nurse took me back, she asked me the basic question:
“When was your last menstrual cycle?”
I responded “Never.”
Which prompted “Really? Never? Wow…Why?”
I said “I have a condition called MRKH, and I had a hysterectomy in 2009.” That seemed to shut her up ;-)
