Bizzare But True-Can A Woman Have Two Wombs ,Two Vaginas

16 April 2019 Blog News


Uterus didelphys (sometimes also uterus didelphis) represents a uterine malformation where the uterus is present as a paired organ when the embryogenetic fusion of the Müllerian ducts fails to occur. As a result, there is a double uterus with two separate cervices, and rarely a double vagina as well. so the answer is yes

Every uterus starts out as two small tubes called Mullerian ducts. As they begin to develop, they usually fuse together to form one uterus. But in rare cases, the tubes remain separate and become two uteri.

Sometimes there is only one cervix for both wombs, other times each womb has a cervix. Often the vagina in women with a double uterus is divided into two separate openings by a thin membrane.

The good news is that it’s entirely possible for women with a double uterus to carry a baby to term. However, the condition does come with an increased risk of miscarriage or premature labor.

You may also hear a double uterus referred to as uterus didelphys. It’s sometimes confused for a separate uterus (a divided uterus) or a bicornuate ie heart shaped uterus

It’s quite common for a woman with a double uterus to experience no symptoms whatsoever. A doctor may discover the condition during a routine  pelvic exam Otherwise, it’s usually found when investigating the cause of recurrent miscarriages.

If a woman has a double vagina with a double uterus, then she may experience menstrual bleeding even after she’s inserted a tampon. This is because she has placed the tampon inside one of her vaginas but is still bleeding from the other vagina.

Usually no treatment is needed and a woman with this condition can conceive,bear children and live her normal life with no treatment required, however where recurrent miscarriages occur,the woman may be offered the option of corrective surgery
