28 year old Lauren Williams from Chingford in Essex was born with an extremely rare medical condition, she had two vaginas.
In fact Lauren discovered in her early twenties that she actually had two vaginas, two wombs and two cervixes. Lauren suspected there might have been something different about her when her periods began to last for up to 21 days, and some sexual positions were painful for her.
Eventually a keen eyed doctor noticed an irregularity in Lauren’s vagina whilst he performed a smear test, and sent her to see a gynaecologist. The gynaecologist diagnosed Lauren with bicornuate uterus, or heart-shaped uterus and arranged for Lauren to have an operation to correct the condition, which carries a high risk on miscarriage if untreated.
