Briana Fletcher is a 23 yr-old lady with third vagina, after being born with a rare condition Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome, which causes the reproductive system to be underdeveloped.
This means she’s missing significant portions of her vagina – Briana has no uterus and is missing the upper two thirds of her vaginal canal.
There were no external clues of what was going on inside Briana’s vagina, so she didn’t learn of her condition until puberty, when her period didn’t arrive.
But, it wasn’t until she reached puberty and didn’t start her periods that she realised something was wrong.
“That was the first clue,” she said. “The doctor attributed it to my low weight.
“I didn’t really feel any different.
According to Briana, “It was a bit odd when someone would ask me for a tampon or pad at school but I just said I didn’t have any on me.
“It didn’t really bother me.”
When she was 16, Briana underwent more tests and investigations.
Ultrasounds and MRI scans confirmed she was missing her womb and the upper two thirds of her vaginal canal.
MRKH (Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser) syndrome is rare, only affecting approximately one in 5,000 women.
