Uterus didelphys - How it took 26 years to correctly diagnos
A woman spent 26 years suffering from crippling stomach pain before doctors discovered she had been born with two wombs, two cervixes, and two vaginas. It was only when Claire and husband Mark, 32, from Stourport, Worcestershire, had difficulty conceiving that doctors diagnosed uterus didelphys, and told her it had led to the development of the extra organs.

World Health Organisation estimates around one in 3,000 women around the world are affected by the condition, which occurs when the uterus fails to fuse properly during development in the womb. It means a woman can be born with any combination of two wombs, two separate cervixes and sometimes two vaginas.
