A woman who was told she may never become a mother after being born with two reproductive systems has given birth to a total of four children. The condition — which affects around one in 3, women - meant she was born with two uteruses, two cervixes and, in her case, two vaginas. The primary school teacher was told that carrying and delivering children would be difficult because her wombs and cervixes were half the size of an average woman. But, against the odds, Mrs Cotter and childhood sweetheart husband Ben, 33, have become parents to Amelie, five, Harvey, three, and month-old twins Maya and Evie. Lauren Cotter, 34, and childhood sweetheart husband Ben, 33, have become parents to Amelie, five, Harvey, three, and month-old twins Maya and Evie against the odds. Mrs Cotter pictured after giving birth to son Harvey was diagnosed with uterus didelphys at 16 and told she'd struggle to carry and deliver children. The condition — which affects around one in 3, women - meant the mother pictured heavily pregnant with the twins was born with two uteruses, two cervixes and, in her case, two vaginas.

They were so severe that from the age of nine she would become delirious and frequently fainted from the pain. Doctors repeatedly missed key warning signs, and on four separate occasions Molly-Rose was misdiagnosed. Years later the now year-old discovered the true cause of her pain - after realising it was impossible to have sex with her boyfriend. The teenager has a rare condition called uterus didelphys, which means she has two vaginas, two cervixes and two wombs. She said multiple doctors failed to spot the 2cm thick wall of tissue that runs vertically down her vagina, known by the medical term, longitudinal septum - which caused her to have two vaginas. Molly-Rose says there was a lack of knowledge and awareness in the medical practice and she had to tirelessly research online before finding information about uterus didelphys. She says it would do "more harm than good" for doctors to attempt to remove any of her other reproductive organs. Also known as double uterus, the condition means women are born with two uteri, two separate cervixes and sometimes two vaginas. The two wombs are often slightly smaller than the average womb in order to allow them both to fit. A double uterus often causes no symptoms.

Reddit user NurseryRN has two vaginas. Having discovered the unusual physiological occurrence when she was 16, she later found out that she also had two uteri and two cervices. Apparently, she has also been told that she can get pregnant in either uterus. In a very open and honest Reddit thread , the anonymous Nursery RN answered curious users' questions about what it's like to live with not one, but two female genitalia. Naturally, there were a lot of questions about what it's to have sex with two vaginas, and Nursery RN's partner was also happy to answer some of those too. But inside is where it differs. To my knowledge, due to the septum in my vagina, my g-spot is covered so I can only have clitoral orgasms and cervical orgasms. For the brave-hearted, someone on the thread posted a link to a photograph of what two vaginas look like. So if you fancy taking a look yourself, here you go.
A man whose partner was born with a rare condition held a no-holds-barred Q and A session. A lot of people probably wouldn't take kindly to their other half divulging all about their sex life - especially with strangers on the internet. So what makes their sex life so extraordinary that people need to know? Surely, in this day and age, most have us have seen and heard it all before?
