This is an absolutely amazing story of a woman who experienced not just one, but two miracles after she was born with two sets of reproductive organs, a rare condition called uterus didelphys.

31-year-old Faye Wilkins from Plymouth, was diagnosed with uterus didelphys when she was 14, which means she has 2 vaginas, 2 cervixes and 2 wombs.uterine-didelphys a1
She was warned by doctors that having a baby is quite impossible…faye wilkins

“At the age of 14 I couldn’t believe it when doctors told me I was born with two vaginas, two cervixes and two wombs. I was in complete shock as I’d never noticed the condition before as the differences were only internal. All my friends had started their periods, but I was only suffering from stomach cramps but nothing else. As the pain got worse, my mum, Polly, took me to the doctors thinking I had an ovarian cyst because a lump had formed but no-one would scan me.

At least eight months later and multiple visits to my GP, my uterus ruptured when I went to the toilet and I heard a huge pop and knew something inside me had exploded. I was in agony, there was so much blood and I rushed to hospital, where doctors examined me and finally diagnosed me with UD. The condition had caused a blockage and my menstrual blood to build up, which had reached 12cm in size.

Within two months I had surgery to make my two vaginas into one to prevent my uterus rupturing again. I was warned after my diagnosis that it would be difficult to conceive due to reproductive organs being half the size they should be, making implantation harder…”

But in 2009, after five miscarriages, Faye shocked the doctors when she miraculously gave birth to her daughter Molly.336522F800000578-3551364-image-m-15_1461229503240

“Unlike most mums, falling pregnant was actually a difficult time for me and I learnt to not even celebrate the news.

Doctors had warned me it would be difficult to conceive and after the first miscarriage I didn’t allow myself to get excited. With Molly I had a cervical stitch to stop her being born too prematurely as my womb is split in half its half the size, meaning it’s much weaker.

Thankfully she was a little fighter and she held on for as long as she could before being delivered by a C-section seven weeks and two days early.

I split from her father during the pregnancy as we wanted different things but I was overwhelmed when the doctor placed her in my arms, I was so happy, I was finally a mum.”

Five years later, after another miscarriage, she gave birth to George, who developed in her right womb, with her current partner, Lee Welch.33651A6800000578-3551364-image-m-12_1461229268531

“This time I was given steroids to speed up George’s growth so when he was born seven weeks and two days early again he was stronger than Molly meaning he was out of neonatal care sooner.”

She said:

I’ve always been upfront and honest with men I’ve dated, I wanted them to know that I may never fall pregnant and uterus didelphys is just a part of who I am. Having UD doesn’t make you any less of a woman, your internal organs have just formed slightly differently. I’ve gone on to lead a relatively normal life, I only have one kidney too which is related to the condition but again I haven’t let this hold me back.

I want to raise awareness as many medical professionals are unaware of the condition and every time I go for a smear it always amazes me how little people know, and how many weird questions I get asked. I don’t have plans for any more children, I already have two beautiful kids and couldn’t be happier – I’m the luckiest woman in the world.

What is Uterus Didelphys?

Uterus didelphys, also known as a double uterus, is a condition where a woman is born with two uterus, to separate cervixes and sometimes two vaginas, though this is not always the case.

It occurs because in a female foetus, the uterus starts out as two small tubes. As the foetus develops, the tubes normally join to create one larger, hollow organ — the uterus. Sometimes the tubes don’t join completely and each one develops into a separate hollow organ so the woman is born with two wombs.

It often only becomes noticeable after puberty and is diagnosed with a physical exam or an ultrasound scan. In terms of physical anatomy, the two wombs are often slightly smaller than average in order to fit, though they can be as big as a ‘normal’ womb. It also makes it possible to be pregnant twice at the same time – with a baby in each womb.

Some women are also born with two vaginas, although they can have sex and menstruate in the same way as people with just one.

According to Dr Leila Hanna, a consultant gynaecologist & Obstetrician at BMI The Sloane Hospital, “They may know they have two and be able to find them, or they may not realize. It can be painful because there are two squashed in the same area, so sometimes we do an operation to join them together, but it’s not necessary. They could also have abnormalities of their kidneys and the tube which bring the urine from the bladder.”

Women suffering uterus didelphys will frequently have a slightly higher risk of late miscarriage, premature delivery and bleeding during pregnancy. Often Cesarean sections are recommended, to reduce the risk of complications. There is no treatment or cure for the condition.
