Vaginal agenesis is a rare condition with an incidence of 1 in 4,000 - 5,000 women.

Case Illustration: A 26-year-old woman complaining of never having menstruation accompanied by cyclic pain every month. The patient had undergone three operations to evacuate blood from the vagina. After the third operation, the patient complaining of feces from the vagina. From the examination, we found that the vaginal length was ± 3 cm with no portio palpable, and discontinuity in the posterior vaginal wall until it penetrated the anus and the uterus was larger.
