A 32-year-old woman who was born with two vaginas is now pregnant. Her pregnancy has continued to baffle her doctors, as she had been told that it would be impossible for her to have children. Her vaginas lay right next to the other. Doctors said Krista Schwab would never get pregnant because of complications caused by her rare condition called uterus didelphys. . she had been told that it would be impossible for her to have children.
The horse trainer, who was diagnosed when she was 12, has two vaginas, two cervixes and two wombs.
But as she considered IVF, she suddenly discovered to her amazement that she was expecting.
Krista, from Washington, USA, said: “After being diagnosed with uterine didelphys at 12 years old, I knew I had two uteruses and two cervixes.
“But when I was 30, I found out that I also have two vaginas that are side by side. I always felt the separate sections during intercourse and smear tests, but I just thought that feeling was a normal thing every woman had.
“For so many years, my husband and I cried, prayed and dreamed of having a child. We both had so many breakdowns because we wanted one so much.
“After probably 1,000 negative pregnancy tests, it got to the point where I gave up wishing anymore.
“Last December, I put on weight; so I bought my billionth pregnancy test which my husband and I thought was just now a waste of money.
“I normally pray and hope while I wait, but this time, I lost all hope and didn’t bother. Then I saw it – it was positive. I hit the floor crying.”
She added: “It was a massive shock, especially for my husband! Doctors and I couldn’t see it because it was too far inside.
