 Pregnant Lady Least Expected Two Wombs and Two Cervixes
During a pregnancy check-up, a woman was told that she had two sets of reproductive organs.

Two wombs and two cervixes were found inside Lindsay Hasaj during a customary check up after five weeks of pregnancy. The 27 year old had feared an ectopic pregnancy after she developed abdominal pains, which sent her scurrying to the hospital.

The condition medically called as 'uterus didelphys', is rare and is said to afflict one in a million.

Hasaj has a normal single entrance into the vagina which gets divided into two sections internally.

"I was in a cold sweat," she recalled. "I thought they were going to say I'd had a phantom pregnancy or something. Ten minutes later, they came back and I was told very matter-of-factly that they could see two wombs and two cervixes."

"'Niggling in the back of my mind was the worry that he would think I was a freak," she said. "It was such a relief when I heard his comforting voice. I knew it would be okay between us. I can't wait to be a mum and I know Tony is going to make the best dad. Because of what has happened, I feel this baby is extra special. I'm incredibly lucky. I'm just happy that I've been given the chance to be a mum at least once."

Mrs Hasaj who is three months into her pregnancy may be put on hormones to support her cervix.

I am also a woman born with a double womb and cervix.I had a vaginal septum,which was removed,and was informed that i would be able to concieve,very easily,but not carry a child. Any pregnancies would result in miscarriage as my wombs were underdeveloped and could not sustain a pregnancy.I have successfully carried children in each womb, and have had 5 children.4 of the five children were twins that never made it to term.I have one ovary to each womb,and experience a double period each month.I have hormone problems due to this abnormality,for life.I have been on tamoxifen due to the problems, but i am proud of the children the doctors said would never exist.

I am only 12 and I started my periods 5 months ago and I have had two periods this month. I came on my first one on the 2nd and I came on again on the 19th of the same month. I am wondering now if I have two wombs because my big sister has two wombs. I don't know much about it because she is my half sister.
