Sup Travellers?! Jacqui Beck is just your normal British teenage girl. She goes to school, she uses Facebook and she sleeps a lot. But there is only thing that makes her distinctly different from most. She doesn't have a vagina. She only figured out that sad reality when she was 17 and had gone for a routine check up at her doctor's office. She complained to the doctor that she wasn't seeing her period. After much examination by the doctor, Beck was diagnosed with MRKH syndrome, a genetic condition that meant she had been born without a vagina, womb or cervix.

"I left the doctor's [office] in tears. I would never know what it was like to give birth, be pregnant, have a period. All the things I had imagined doing suddenly got erased from my future," Beck told the Daily Mail. "I was really angry and felt like I wasn’t a real woman any more.

Her condition, however, is not very rare. Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome or MRKH, affects one in 4,500 newborn girls. The condition mainly affects the reproductive system and "causes the vagina and uterus to be underdeveloped or absent." The person mostly has a physical vagina and still experiences puberty but the condition is usually detected once someone with MRKH tries to have sex, or doesn't begin having periods by age 16.

Beck, now 19, is finding ways to deal with her situation, "I’m a hopeless romantic and I see it as a great test of someone’s character. Instead of focusing on it putting off men, I actually think it will help me find 'the one',” Beck told the Daily Mail. "I want to be upfront with any men I meet and tell them straight away about my condition... If they run at the mention of MRKH then I don’t want to be intimate with them."

I'm going to be honest. Jacqui Beck is HELLA SEXY!! Are we watching the same photos? Because if we are, I'm sure that you can agree with me. It sucks that she doesn't have a vagina though. It is still possible for her to look and feel like a regular girl because she does have external genitalia but the only thing is that she can't reproduce. I'm sure that at some point in the next couple years doctors will figure out a way to fix her up well so that she can pass on her genes to the next generation. But whatever happens it doesn't change the fact that she is HOT and that my name is Trinikid and you have just been informed.
