She had always been fascinated by sex
While she was in the boarding school, it was practically the only timeless topic
Her roommates think and talk about sex all the time
She did too
In the beginning she thought it was abnormal but by the time she became an undergraduate she realized it was very natural
When she visited her friends and classmates’ rooms and paid attention to the discussions, the hottest topics were always guys, sex and relationships!
Almost exclusively in that order
She would listen attentively while feigning disinterest
Her Christian upbringing portrayed talking about sex almost like a sin
It was shrouded in a mysterious garb reserved for only the married
She felt dirty thinking about sex all the time
To talk about it was simply unthinkable!
Her mother was a staunch born again Christian
The turban wearing type with Jesus’ like sandals
She couldn’t even imagine her mother having sex
She had expected that she would start having her menstrual period in her early teens
She told her mother
Her mother said she should pray about it and that was that
Their denomination does not believe in hospitals
It was regarded as a taboo for a believer to subject his or body to such a carnal institution
She resolved to wait on the Lord
She was still waiting on the Lord when she turned 25
Suitors started coming
She was a graduate with a good job
It was time to settle down
She settled for a fine young man also from her denomination
They had a glorious wedding
They went to the UK for the honeymoon
Finally! She would let the ninja in her cupboard loose
She had a warm bath
Dressed in a devilish nightgown one of her carnal colleagues bought for her
He was ready for her
She shuddered at the thought of his “giantness” as she saw it in all its glory inside her
His touch was as light as a feather
Within minutes she was hot and panting
Like a deer panting after water
He latched onto her nipples
The atmosphere tingled
Oh my God!
This is the younger version of heaven!
He took her hand downwards
Placed the giant in it
She throbbed with it
Finally, she met Adam! Adam nodded approvingly
He worked on her body until she was tender, deboned!
She was suspended somewhere between ecstasy and rhapsody
He opened her legs
One minute…five minutes…fifteen minutes
He employed Vaseline to ease his way
He put on the light, opened her legs wide and took a look
By this time, she had crashed!
Something was wrong!
The space where her vagina was supposed to be was so tiny, only urine could come out of it
He looked at her with a mixture of pity and disgust
Didn’t you know you don’t have a vagina?
Oh God! How was she supposed to answer that question?
How could she have known? How could anybody have known?
On the outside everything looked like it ought to!
They went to the hospital the next day
She did a barrage of tests and a series of MRI’s
She was diagnosed with diagnosed with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome
Life took a downward turn
They returned home from honeymoon
Her husband insisted on annulling the marriage, after all it was never consummated
She didn’t know what to say!
It was all like a bad dream!
How could she not have a vagina?
How could any woman not have a vagina?
She had neither a uterus nor a cervix too
She can never have children!
The doctors advised her on the medical options she had and how much it would cost her!
The options were way beyond her capacity
Her most realistic option was to accept fate or trust God for divine intervention
One month later, she moved to her own apartment
The marriage was annulled
Many people wondered why her marriage crashed so soon
Others talk about her behind her back
How many people would she explain her lot to?
Life has dealt her a bad hand!
This series of events happened in 2017
Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome, is a condition that affects about 1 in every 4,500 newborn girls, according to the National Institutes of Health. It happens when, during embryonic development, the female reproductive organs (including the uterus, cervix and vagina) do not develop properly. As a result, the uterus and vagina may be underdeveloped or absent entirely, the NIH said.
People with this condition are genetically female (meaning they have two X chromosomes), and have normally functioning ovaries. They also have normal external genitalia, and so the condition is usually discovered only when women do not get their period, as was the case for Moats.
In some cases, the condition can be treated without surgery, by using vaginal "dilators" to create a vagina or enlarge an existing vagina, according to the National Organization for Rare Diseases (NORD). Vaginal dilators are specially designed plastic tubes that can be used to stretch and widen the small amount of vaginal tissue that is typically present (sometimes referred to as a vaginal "dimple"), according to NORD.
The condition can also be treated with surgery to create a vagina, which is called a vaginoplasty.
