A Ghanaian woman based in the UK has shared known as Elizabeth Amoah has come out to opened up on her condition of having two wombs and two private areas.
In an interview with Accra based radio station 3FM, Elizabeth revealed how she had lived with an abnormal condition for a long while.
Elizabeth on 3FM’s Drive show with Giovani Caleb revealed that she got to know of her condition in 2015 after an MRI scan and has so far undergone 7 medical surgeries.
“I discovered I had a double womb and a double vagina canal in 2015 after an MRI scan, so I had to undergo about 7 surgeries,” she revealed.
The scan, according to her, also detected she had Endometriosis: a s£xual disorder in which tissues linings of the uterus grows outside the uterus.
She explained having a double vag#na means “having one vag#na outside and the other inside”.
She added that the double womb usually does not come with any symptoms but rather exposes one to health challenges such as irregular periods, fibroids, irregular fainting and in some instances cause infertility.
“I had a premature baby after four years of not conceiving, and going through such health situations wasn’t easy,” she explained.
Elizabeth noted the condition is not common in women, saying “research says it can be found in one out of 350 women and the person might not even know she has it”.
