A 31-year-old Australian woman who has 2 vaginas & uteruses has given birth to a healthy baby after doctors said that it might not be possible. Each of Evelyn's vagina & uterus leads to its own fallopian tube & ovary.

This means that she can have two babies in either one at the same time. Her condition is known as uterus didelphys and it affects about 1 in 3,000 women worldwide.

   

Woman with 2 vaginas and uteruses gives birth to healthy baby

WHAT?

A 31-year-old Australian woman who has 2 vaginas & uteruses has given birth to a healthy baby after doctors said that it might not be possible. Each of her vagina & uterus leads to its own fallopian tube & ovary. 

HOW?

She conceived naturally via her right vagina and gave birth to her baby boy via c-section.

She can't track ovulation as doctors cannot determine if both her ovaries release an egg each month or if they alternate. An extra reproductive tract means her abdominal cavity doesn't have enough space for a foetus to grow.

To add to this, Evelyn's partner had a low sperm count. Doctors suggested that the couple should try IVF and prepare for premature delivery.

Evelyn, who uses a pseudonym, got pregnant naturally after just a few months of trying.

Evelyn, a nurse by training, there was something unusual when she got her first period as tampons didn't work for her. However, she didn't learn what was different when she went for an abortion in her 20s. The doctors could not find the embryo and when they did, they discovered that she had two reproductive systems.
