Do you still get a period without a uterus?

By Zaira Salvador (embryologist).

No, it is not possible. The menstrual periods occurs on a monthly basis because the endometrial lining sheds if no embryo implants. The endometrial or uterine lining is the inner layer of the uterus. Without a uterus, there's no endometrial lining either, so women with Müllerian agenesis have no periods.
