A young woman who was born without a vagina is speaking out about her condition – and is now hoping to become a mother. Devan Merck was devastated after finding out she had no vagina when she was just 12-years-old. The 23-year-old was diagnosed with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome meaning she had no vaginal canal, a malformed uterus and no cervix. Surgeons created a ‘man-made’ vagina using skin taken from her bottom - allowing her to have sex and lead a normal life. And now Devan and her husband Trent, from Georgia, USA, are hoping to start a family with the help of a surrogate.
