On a Reddit thread that eventually hit the front page, a woman in her 20s who went by username NurseryRN opened up about having sex while living with uterus didelphys, which means having two uteruses, cervixes and usually two vaginas. NurseryRN found out about the condition when she was 16 years old after a doctor who performed surgery on her at 13 years old had told her to visit a gynecologist when she was older.
On the outside, her vagina looks "normal" and then separates about an inch internally. She "can only have clitoral orgasms and cervical orgasms since her g-spot is covered by a septum between the vaginas. "My sex life is good," she wrote. "It depends which vagina is penetrated. My vaginas are side by side and the left side hurts when penetrated because it is smaller." So typically she uses the right side. "Other than that, I imagine that it's not much different than anyone else's."
With two ovaries and fallopian tubes, the reproductive system is "fairly symmetrical," and sometimes doesn't properly fuse into one during development, according to Women's Health Magazine. The result can vary too — there can be one uterus and two vaginas, or one side of the reproductive system can be missing. People also probably wouldn't discover the condition on their own.
She said that she cried while hearing the news and that guys are usually in "disbelief" upon hearing of it.
NurseryRN also revealed that she can still get pregnant, but would need a C-section to deliver the babies since her uteri are smaller. While hormones don't typically allow pregnancies in both uteri, redditors claimed to have seen cases of such happening.
With two fallopian tubes per uterus, NurseryRN gets her period once a month. Although her doctor told her to use two tampons at once, she decides to just use one.
She also has the option to get her septum removed, but that would require putting in a mold in her vagina twice daily for half a year to avoid scar tissue formation.
NurseryRN's partner, redditor twicethefunn, also chimed in on their sex life in a separate Reddit thread. He said her condition isn't very noticeable. "I knew about it before going into our relationship and before having sex," he said. "I wasn't weirded out by it. It felt pretty normal."
