Hello! My name is Danielle, I am an 18 year old college student and I also have didelphys like many of you do! I have a uteri, double cervix but only one vagina however I was recently told that I have a left hemivagina, meaning that one of my cervixes is a lot lower than the other... I found out I had didelphys at the age of 15... Read on for my story!
My Story I found out I had didelphys almost three years ago, in December of my grade ten year of highschool. I had started my period a year earlier and experienced acute abdominal pain... It took a while before doctors figure out what was up but finally one doctor was able to detect double uterus. Turns out that I had an obstructed uterus I guess you could say... The septum was stuck to one side of the vaginal wall and for a year, the uteri filled up everytime I had my period but only one would drain; so there was a year of dead blood accumulated which caused the abdominal pain... Luckily a gynecologist at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) was able to fix this problem by cutting the septum; but not completely because she did not want to damage the cervixes. I haven't experienced any more pain but had severe bleeding during my periods and they would last up to a month... I believe my longest was a month and two weeks! Anyways, so we tried the pill and all sorts of stuff but now I'm on the shot and it's been about a year and a half maybe two years... This is still a pain the ass for me because I never know when I am "menstruating" and being hormonal haha! Anyone experience lots of ups and downs in moods? What have doctors told you? I also experience a lot of discomfort during sexual intercourse..
