2 Uteri, 2 Babies: Woman has 1-in-5M Birth - March 3rd 2009, 09:38 PM

Article
Quote:
(Newser) – What’s more impressive, having eight babies, or having two—one from each womb? Sarah Reinfelder, whom the New York Post has tastefully dubbed “Womber Woman,” did the latter, thanks to a condition called uterus didelphys, or double uterus. One in every 2,000 women has didelphys, it turns out, but most aren’t aware of it until they get pregnant, and sometimes not even then, ob-gyn Robert Zurawin tells Scientific American.
Most women with two wombs only get pregnant in one—Reinfelder’s case is one of only three recorded in the last 40 years—and if they don’t get an ultrasound early enough in the pregnancy, the womb with the child will block the other from view. Others, however, will know they have the condition from birth, because they’ll have a second cervix and vagina.
That's really rare and very interesting, to say the least.

I heard about this. It's pretty dang interesting. But oh man, one's enough for me.

There was an episode of Grey's Anatomy with a woman who was in the same condition. But then they found out that the babies had two different fathers.

It is quite an interesting condition. I'm with Jes though one is enough.

Interesting indeed. I would definitely feel strange if my wife told me she had twins in two separate uteri. It wouldn't bother me, but it would be quite unusual.

^^ Just what I was thinking. It must do. But then the article said "most aren’t aware of it until they get pregnant, and sometimes not even then". Which kind of suggests they only get one.

But I am not sure how that would work..... if you had... double the parts, shouldn't you get double the period....??????

It would make sexual stuff confusing too I imagine... if you had two..... I am over thinking this....

Yes it would indeed make it confusing. If there was a guy involved and the woman knew. Then, double the places to go for him. And this is where I stop.

As for the periods. The woman who have this condition, might get their monthly's from both wombs and it just is really heavy periods?

Seriously, I thought the same thing about the periods. Maybe she bleeds twice as much? You would assume that if both uteri are functioning that they would produce the lining which would need to be shed.

Click me

One of the symptoms, that is mentioned in the above article. It seems as though woman with this condition do in fact have 'double the periods'.

Now thats a confusing picture

It would be frustrating when tampons just don't work, would two work?
To... for lack of better words...plug both holes?

It depends on whether or not she has more than one hole.

Back when freak shows were acceptable, one woman had two lower body halves and managed to have children from both.

Thats....kinda cool. In a weird way...
I'd hate to have double the periods though.

It's definitely interesting. But I'd be worried about complications and such..
