Mihrengiz married Mehmed as his second wife, when he had been a prince. On 2 March 1888, she gave birth to her only son, ?ehzade Ömer Hilmi in the Veliahd Palace. On 27 April 1909, after Mehmed's accession to the throne, she was given the title of "Second Consort".
In 1912, the "Hilal-i Ahmer Centre for Women" was organized within the "Ottoman Hilal-i Ahmer Association", a foundation established in 1877 to provide medical care in Istanbul and surrounding communities. Mihrengiz was a member of this organization.
Safiye Ünüvar, a teacher at the Palace School, whom she met in 1915, noted in her memoirs that unlike the other wives, Mihrengiz was slim, while the others were quite heavier. This was because she had been suffering from illness from the past few years.
In 1924 they went into exile and settled in Alexandria. Her son suffered from a stroke and died soon after settling in Alexandria. She died on 12 December 1938 at Alexandria and was buried in the Mausoleum of the Egyptian prince Omar Tusun Pasha.
