Who We Are
MRKH Malaysia is a non-profit support group for Malaysian women who were born with MRKH Syndrome, including their families. MRKH Syndrome is a congenital disorder where females were born without uterus and upper vagina, subsequently affecting the health of their kidneys, heart, bones, hearing, as well as mental and emotional wellbeing. This rare syndrome happens to 1 in every 4,000 to 5,000 women all around the world.
"Challenging perceptions, changing lives."

Reinforcing Our Sisterhood
Our support group MRKH Malaysia can be found on Facebook. This private group is only for MRKH women and mothers of MRKH girls below the age of 18. We are committed to protecting the identity and privacy of our MRKH sisters. We provide peer support in group and individually, to both MRKH women and partners / families. We will guide you on issues related to your MRKH journey, to enable you lead a normal life. To join, please email us a photo of your medical report or doctor's letter.
Building Stronger Connection
MRKH Malaysia began by taking inspiration from the Beautiful You MRKH Foundation. Today, MRKH Malaysia is a significant part of the Malaysian Rare Disorders Society (MRDS) and works hand-in-hand with the Obstetrics and Gynaecology unit at UKM Medical Centre (UKMMC). UKMMC is the only hospital in Malaysia that does extensive research on MRKH Syndrome. If you or your grown-up daughter has never had any menstruation, please make an appointment with one of the gynaecologists at UKMMC.
Spreading The Awareness
Since our establishment in 2015, MRKH Malaysia has been advocating its cause through various media platforms. We need more doctors and parents to know about MRKH Syndrome. We want to break the cultural stigma that puts unhealthy amount of pressure on being a biological mother. We hope to redefine womanhood, motherhood, and marriage. We wish to stress on the importance of early diagnosis, peer support, and psychological health. We aim for uterine transplant to be a reality in Malaysia one day.
