Reddit user NurseryRN has two vaginas. Having discovered the unusual physiological occurrence when she was 16, she later found out that she also had two uteri and two cervices. Apparently, she has also been told that she can get pregnant in either uterus.
In a very open and honest Reddit thread, the anonymous Nursery RN answered curious users’ questions about what it’s like to live with not one but two sets of female genitalia. Naturally, there were a lot of questions about what it’s like to have sex with two vaginas, and Nursery RN’s partner was also happy to answer some of those too.
So here’s what we learnt:
It looks like a ‘normal’ vagina from the outside
But inside is where it differs. ‘There is a septum,’ she described, which is the same as what divides our nostrils in two. ‘It’s separated about an inch into my vagina.To my knowledge, because of the septum in my vagina, my G-spot is covered so I can only have clitoral orgasms and cervical orgasms.’
For the brave-hearted, someone on the thread posted a link to a photograph of what two vaginas look like. So if you fancy taking a look yourself, here you go.
She likes to have sex in the right vagina
‘My vaginas are side by side and the left side hurts when penetrated because it is smaller,’ she explained. The anonymous woman also confirmed that her ‘sex life is good, [but] it depends which vagina is penetrated.’
She will have to give birth via C-section
‘My uteri are smaller than normal so I am at risk for miscarriage, intrauterine growth restriction (small babies) and premature babies,’ NurseryRN wrote. So she will have to deliver via Caesarean section to minimise risk.
In theory, she could get pregnant twice, at the same time
For example, if she had sex and got pregnant in one uterus one month, the same could happen in the other uterus the following month (although it is unlikely). NurseryRN explained: ‘Due to hormones, that isn’t supposed to happen but I’ve read that it’s happened before. Apparently a woman had one in one uterus and twins in the other uterus.’
She only has one period per month
Which we’re sure she’s thankful for. She described on the thread how she has ‘two fallopian tubes, one connected to each uterus’. However, NurseryRN clarifies: ‘I menstruate once a month’ so presumably it happens at the same time, but emerges from both vaginas.
As well as answering questions about her own body, NurseryRN’s partner also described what it’s like to have sex with someone who has two vaginas. He explained that having sex with his girlfriend is ‘different, but then again all vaginas are different’.
Some Redditors were intrigued about how he fingered his partner (charming, I know, but there aren’t many other ways to put it). And just FYI, her boyfriend explained that he tends to split his fingers, putting one in each vagina.
So there you go. You learn something new every day.
