My name is Connie, I am a 47 year old mom of one amazing 13 year old girl. I was diagnosed with my "plurality" when I was in my 20's. My regular GP never saw anything abnormal until I had a pap and was recalled for a second. Then for a third because the results of the two tests were so different. Abnormal cells in the first, nothing in the second. I went to the gynecologist who, after some ``uh huh``, `hmmmm`, asked the question ``did you know you have two cervix`?" I thought he was joking and asked how many I was supposed to have.
That was the beginning of my journey. In the next few years I also discovered that I had two complete reproductive organ sets, one vagnia but from there on in, two of everything. I had a 2/3 septum which was removed when my daughter was born. To make all this more painful to accept, I also found out I had small kidneys, bladder and liver and I also have "two tailbones", my tailbone never fused together after I was born, hence the "two"!
I have two periods almost every month and sometimes, the moods are so bad, I cannot stand myselt. It was under control somewhat with the birth control, but I had to go off those in my early 40's due to the risk of cancer. My gynecologist refuses to tie my tubes or give me a hysterectomy, he says it does not pose an immediate risk to my health and deemed it "unnecessary"
I stumbled onto this website while doing more research and I am humbled by some of the stories I have read and actually comforted by the number of ladies who have been afflicted with this, it's nice to know I am not alone and the feelings I have had over the past years have been felt by others.
