Woman (23) who was born without a vagina has sex for the first time thanks to fish skin

A Brazilian in her twenties who was born without a vagina, underwent surgery last year, so that she can have sex anyway. "It was a wonderful moment because everything worked perfectly", she now says relieved. The intervention was a worldwide medical scoop and used a piece of fish skin.


Jucilene Marinho was born 23 years ago without a uterus and vagina. The woman from Ceará, in Brazil, suffers from Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster's syndrome, a rare and congenital disorder found only in women.


The condition may be innate, but eventually it would take no less than fifteen years for Jucilene to receive the correct diagnosis. She experienced normal puberty and even suffered from menstrual pain.

 

 


'I thought my world was collapsing'


"I cried when I discovered it," Jucilene recalls. "I thought my world was collapsing. I had always dreamed of having a baby and suddenly I had to accept that I could not do that at all. "

In April last year Jucilene went under the knife at the Federal University of Ceará. Surgeons made an opening at the place where "Jucilenes" vagina should have been. A genital-shaped mold was then inserted, covered with fish skin from tilapia. That fish skin was absorbed by her body and turned into new tissue that bled the vagina.

 

"Toasting on my new vagina!"

It was the first time that a similar operation was performed and went as expected. Juceline, who was discharged from the hospital after three weeks, is overjoyed with the result. "My friends and family took me out to 'toast' on my new vagina!"

Meanwhile, Juceline has also succeeded in having sex with her boyfriend Marcus Santos for the first time (24). "It was a wonderful moment, because everything worked perfectly. It was not painful, just pleasant and satisfying. "
