Conjoined twins reveal devastating thing which would happen if they were ever split apart

Conjoined twins reveal devastating thing which would happen if they were ever split apart

The twins explained what could happen in a YouTube video

A pair of conjoined twins have revealed what would happen if they were to be separated.

Discussed on the Jubilee YouTube channel, Carmen and Lupita, 21, explained they are conjoined twins, who are joined at the torso and share a pelvis.

They also have two separate hearts and stomachs but have one digestive and reproductive system.

The pair answered a series of questions in the video from a wide range of people - which ranged from their experience at school to their general day-to-day lives. And one person asked whether there would be any possibility that the twins could ever be separated.

"Our parents tried to find doctors that can, but we got a final answer of 'no' at four years old," said Lupita.

Carmen and Lupita are conjoined twins.

"If they tried to separate us, either one of us would pass away, both of us could pass away or we would never leave the hospital from needing other transplants and medical procedures to stay alive." Carmen continued to say.

"From a very early age we have accepted who we are, and we can wish all we want, it won't happen and we are proud of who we are and what our condition is.

"We won't and can't change anything about it."

The pair also spoke about dating and what that is like for them as a conjoined twin.

While Lupita explained she is asexual, Carmen explained she has a boyfriend who she met on Hinge. They have been dating for 18 months.

"It was a learning process for everyone," said Carmen.

"We had to have a discussion on what boundaries are okay and what aren't. "We're not intimate in that way and he's okay with that."

Conjoined twins Abby and Brittany Hensel have also previously answered questions regarding their condition.

Last week, many were shocked to learn via public records that Abby tied the knot with nurse and US Army veteran, Josh Bowling, back in 2021.

Abby and Brittany are dicephalus conjoined twins, which means they share a bloodstream and all of the organs below the waist.

Incredibly though, they still have two hearts as Abby controls the right arm and leg of the body, while Brittany controls the left.

When it comes to eating, the pair will sometimes have separate meals, but will ideally tend to stick to a single meal, with one person eating at a time.

The twins do, in fact, have two digestive systems and two separate stomachs, but because they share the same bladder and excretion system, sometimes one meal is more convenient.

One common question is whether the couple will ever have children.

"That is probably something that could work because those organs do work for them," their mum previously explained in a documentary titled Joined For Life.

"Yeah, we're going to be moms," Brittany agreed at the time.

She also said previously: "The whole world doesn't need to know who we are seeing, what we are doing, and when we are going to do it.

"But believe me, we are totally different people."
