Welcome to 'Uterus Didelphys Together'.
This is a website for people who either have Uterus Didelphys (or a similar condition) themselves, know someone with, or just want to understand more about this rare condition. We have a friendly, open atmosphere where we can all feel comfortable to discuss our condition together. I haven't seen many places where we can do that online so please make use of the forums and enjoy!
What is Uterus Didelphys?
Uterus Didelphys is a condition which involves a girl/woman having two uteri (wombs), two cervices, and occasionally two vaginas. It is thought that this develops due to the 'two halves' (or mullerian ducts) of the reproductive system that we all start out with not fusing properly before birth. This results in having two sets of reproductive organs. In effect, it is one set in half, hence why most women have only two ovaries (one for each womb). There are many other similar conditions and variations of Uterus Didelphys, all of which can be discussed on this site.
What is this site for?
I was diagnosed with it when I was just 14. I'm still only in my early 20s now and I have a long way to go, but I know that I found it very difficult to come to terms with having this condition and the complications that it may bring about in later life. When I was diagnosed, there were very few people to talk to, inaccurate information online, too much intimidating medical information, and no personal information or any kind of support group. There wasn't even anywhere to ask questions about personal issues to do with it where I could be sure to get a reliable answer. I know that when I was diagnosed, someone to talk to would have been a great help.
This is why I created this site. For people who simply want to talk about it. Whether it be on a medical or personal level, I, and I'm sure many others, will be happy to talk about it with you! It is nothing to be ashamed of, there are people and procedures available to help if you want or need them but most importantly, I would love to think that this site might be able to help people to understand and accept their condition and to be happy just as they are.
If you are reading this and are thinking 'That's me!' or something along those lines, please write in the guestbook or email me with questions, information, experiences or even diagrams/illustrations! at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I would very much appreciate it that anybody who wishes to make negative/derogatory comments about this subject matter, would keep their opinions to themselves. Anyone dealing with and still coming to terms with this condition does not need the minuscule minority of people out to upset and cause trouble bothering them. You may of course email me, but do not make your inaccurate, non-representitive and negative opinions public on this site. They will simply be deleted, thank you. Of course, all experiences (positive or negative) posted by genuine users are a separate matter and are very much welcomed.
All users may of course remain anonymous or use a false name if you do not feel comfortable with putting your real details out there, and any information passed on to me will remain confidential unless I am told otherwise. This includes names, information of experiences, contact details (including email address) and anything else that you mention.
I personally used to go by 'Phoebe' on here, you can go by anything you like (within reason!!) and that is absolutely fine.
Please get in contact and let's get started!
