A 27-year-old woman whose rare medical condition means she has two uteruses, two vaginas, and two cervixes says she had to lose her virginity twice, and also has to have two smear tests, but has decided not to have surgery to correct the condition.
Hazel Jones was diagnosed with the ‘one in a million’ condition uterus didelphys when she was 18, after suffering with difficulties from when her periods started at 14.
The condition means a woman has two separate uteruses, two vaginas and two cervixes. Hazel told ITV1’s This Morning hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield she was 18 before being diagnosed with uterus didelphys. It occurs when a barrier between two tubes that form the uterus fails to break down during development, leaving two internal channels.
Hazel, of High Wycombe, Bucks, did not realise she was different until her periods started at 14. She said: “I told friends. They looked even more confused than me.”
She went to hospital four years later to learn the truth. She added: “I thought it was amazing.”
Hazel told The Sun her condition did not hold her back in any way. “My quirky condition does not make me shy or hold me back. In fact, it’s something I celebrate.”
