A user on Reddit who has two vaginas has answered questions honestly about what it’s like to live with the condition.
The woman is only known as user NurseryRN, and introduced herself with the following introduction: “I am in my 20s. I found out I had two uteri, two cervices, and two vaginas when I was 16 years old. I’ve been told I can get pregnant in either uterus. AMA [ask me anything].”
NurseryRN has had surgery 18 times and has spoken on how her condition affects her sex life, her periods and how she could get pregnant.
The technical term for the condition is Uterus Didelphys. It’s exact cause is unknown, but it is generally present from birth, though often only becomes noticeable after puberty.
So grab a cup of coffee and prepare to be enlightened by some of her insightful answers below:
So could you potentially get pregnant, then a month later get pregnant again?Due to hormones, that isn’t supposed to happen but I’ve read that it’s happened before. Apparently a woman had one in one uterus and twins in the other uterus.
How do your menstrual cycles work? Do you get two at a time or are they at different times?
I have two fallopian tubes, one connected to each uterus. I menstruate once a month.
How do you react when you first learned about it?
What are guys reactions when they find out you have two vaginas?
Disbelief lol which makes it fun to talk about
soooo the obvious question, hows your sex life?
My sex life is good. It depends which vagina is penetrated. My vaginas are side by side and the left side hurts when penetrated because it is smaller. To my knowledge, due to the septum in my vagina, my g-spot is covered. Other than that, I imagine that it’s not much different than anyone else’s.
Are you able to use tampons/diva cups at all, or do you have to use pads or something external?
My doc says I should use two tampons at one time but thats a bit ridiculous so I just use one. I can choose to get the septum removed but scar tissue may form. I would have to put a mold in my vagina twice a day for 15 minutes at a time and I would have to do that for 6 months.
Can you orgasm from both vaginas or just one? If you can orgasm from both have you tried to have a simultaneous orgasm from both at the same time?
I can orgasm from both but I’ve never orgasmed at the same time.
How did you find out about it?
When I was 13 years old I had to have surgery on my intestines. When I got out of surgery, my parents were told to take me to an ob/gyn when I was 16 because “something is wrong with the reproductive system.” My ob/gyn did a vaginal exam and told me I had a double vagina and two cervices and we decided to do an exploratory laparoscopy.
What is the best and worst thing with having 2 vaginas?
I guess the worst thing is sex can be uncomfortable because the left side is small. I guess the best thing is it makes a good conversation. Other than that there really isn’t anything that makes it all that exciting.
