A Uk-based Ghanaian woman, Elizabeth Amoah born with double vaginas and double womb has shared her story on the search of a solution.
She revealed that she had undergone seven medical surgeries after she was diagnosed with having sexual complications.
The ‘Special Lady’ who spoke to 3FM’s Drive with Giovani Caleb, said she has decided to let the whole world know about this condition that has tormented her for years.
“I discovered I had a double womb and a double vagina canal in 2015 after an MRI scan, so I had to undergo about 7 surgeries,” she told Giovani Caleb.
According to her, the scan also detected she had Endometriosis: a sexual disorder in which tissues linings of the uterus grows outside the uterus.
She explained having a double vagina means “having one vagina outside and the other inside”.
She added that the double womb usually does not come with any symptoms but rather exposes one to health challenges such as irregular periods, fibroids, irregular fainting and in some instances cause infertility.
“I had a premature baby after four years of not conceiving, and going through such health situations wasn’t easy,” she said.
Elizabeth also noted the condition is not common in women, saying “research says it can be found in one out of 350 women and the person might not even know she has it”.
