About MeI was diagnosed with UD when I was 10 years old. I started my period at that age and attempted to put in a tampon but it wouldn't go in so after many arguments with my mother, she took me to a gynecologist who stated my hymen had not been broken but broken enough to allow some blood to flow. Surgery was scheduled to cut the hymen and a discovery was made during surgery. I have two vaginas! At this point, I didn't know about my double uterus but was told by my parents we would explore my anatomy when I got older. Inserting tampons were still a challenge as I had to use two and my parents warned me to never tell anyone about my "body difference" as boys will talk. They pretty much shamed me into never looking, touching or telling anyone about my vagina until I got into college and wanted to be intimate with boys. It was my first sexual experience and unfortunate college experience that wasn't so planned that brought me back to my gynecologist back home . It was that mistake and probably many episodes of "Sex in the City" that made me not only look at my body differently but my sexuality differently. I embraced my vaginas, septum wall that created two cervix and two uterus and began to get to know them instead of ignoring them. During my 20s, I realized most men couldn't even find my clitoris let alone figure out I have two vaginas. I did have to guide them more during sex but most couldn't tell. Getting pregnant was challenging and I had numerous OB/GYNs tell me I'll never get pregnant. Well ladies, don't give up! I found a doc who was willing to try infertility drugs and with over a year for each kid, I have two beautiful boys, ages 2 and 4. I did have c-sections and did give birth about a month early. I can't tell you how happy I am to have found this website. Our UD is such a part of our identity and it's a lonely road during adolescence. I am open to people's questions or comments. Thanks!
