Hello Anonymous,

Uterine hypoplasia is a congenital disorder. This means it is present at birth. You had a small uterus when you were born. It occurs when the uterus fails to fully develop in the fetus.

The cause of this abnormal fetal development is not yet known.

Uterine hypoplasia may be one symptom of a broader condition known as Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH), a disorder in which the girl’s uterus and vagina are absent or underdeveloped, in addition to other abnormalities.

There are no medications to increase the size of the uterus. I would look into the availability of a blood test to check for MRKH. A hospital associated with a major university is a good place to start.

Regards,
Maryann

Hello Anonymous,

I can appreciate your feelings, waiting for a positive change and yet seeing such little progress. But, there does appear to be progress, if your uterus is growing in size.

As you know, a hypoplastic uterus is a congenital, meaning present at birth, condition in which the uterus is very small in size.

It appears that the current treatment with hormone replacement therapy is working, even if slowly.

Finding a support group of women who are having a similar experience as you might be helpful for you. The support and friendship of people who know what you are going through might be the best therapy. Ask your doctor for referrals or recommendations for such a group.

Hello snq,

The female reproductive system develops from two ducts called the mullerian ducts. As the embryo develops, these ducts evolve to become the fallopian tubes, vagina, ovaries, and uterus. Abnormal development of the mullerian ducts results in congenital uterine malformation.

Symptoms of a hypoplastic uterus range from amenorrhea or the absence of menstruation, infertility, and recurrent pregnancy loss

A hypoplastic uterus is diagnosed on the basis of its small size as seen on an MRI scan.

Any congenital defects of the reproductive system cannot be detected at birth. Any concerns about an adolescent's normal development during puberty should be discussed with your pediatrician.
