Why do I bleed if I don´t have a uterus or ovaries?

Women with Rokitansky's syndrome may present with light bleeding and pelvic pain due to the existence of a small part of functional endometrium in a rudimentary uterus, or even due to the formation of myomas in the such a uterus.

However, it is more common for women with this syndrome to have a total absence of uterus. In this case, they should undergo tests to find out where the bleeding is coming from.
