Woman With Two Vaginas Speaks Out About Her Condition To Raise Awareness

Woman With Two Vaginas Speaks Out About Her Condition To Raise Awareness

A woman with two vaginas is speaking out about her condition with hopes that it will encourage others feel confident to talk about their health and bodies.

Andreea found out about her condition when she was 14, having been told during a check-up that she had uterus didelphys - which means she has two vaginas and two wombs.

Now 26, Andreea has decided to share her story for the first time to raise awareness of the condition, saying she no longer feels self-conscious.

She explained how the gynaecologist had been unable to insert the speculum because she had cartilage dividing the entrance to her vagina, effectively splitting it into two.

Andreea, an assistant manager from Salisbury in Wiltshire, recalled: "He was quite shocked. He said it was very rare but not something to worry about at my age."

While she says it makes no difference to her sex life, with hopes to one day have children, Andreea is only now learning about fertility complications linked to uterus didelphys, which lowers chances of reproduction.

Both uterus function, but after falling pregnant at 17, her baby sadly stopped growing three months later.

Andreea and her partner of six years, Oliver, 36, have decided to find out more about the condition so that they can have a family one day.

She said: "I have never been sure if I could carry a baby full term, so I wanted to know if we could have children. I still have so many questions surrounding my diagnosis.

"In theory I have two wombs so I could fall pregnant, whilst pregnant and carry two babies at the same time but I want to know if I can carry one baby safely.

Andreea said her condition doesn't cause any day-to-day pain, but she does suffer from 'very bad period cramps', which she believes is due to having an extra uterus.

She used to find it difficult to talk about, and decided not to tell her friends after initially finding out, but now feels confident in her own skin.

She said: "Now, I'm not self-conscious about it at all.

"As I've got older I've always been honest with people and I haven't been judged for it.

"My worries were as a teenager when I didn't know if it made me different or who to talk to. Now I don't find it weird, it's just who I am and we are all different in one way or another."

Andreea added: "Girls should know their bodies, be comfortable in their own skin and learn to know what is 'normal' for them.

"When I was a teenager, you didn't talk about what was going on with your body, especially nothing that you were self-conscious of or something that you were worried about. You didn't want to be seen as different to other people."
