A UK-based Ghanaian lady identified as Elizabeth Amoah, who was born with two vaginas and two wombs has opened up about her condition.
Elizabeth who is known as ‘Special Lady’, spoke on 3FM’s Drive with Giovani Caleb, revealed she had to undergo seven medical surgeries after she was diagnosed with having sexual complications.
“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 calso 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”.
