Cassandra Bankson, a YouTube star who teaches fans to cover blemishes and overcome bullying, recently learned an unthinkable truth about herself — she has TWO vaginas, two uteri, two cervixes, two fallopian tubes and one kidney. WHEW!
Doctors made the shocking discovery when the 22-year-old sought treatment for lower back pain.
“Most vaginas are one large cavity, but this is a complete separation into two different cavities. I was shocked and the doctor explained to me that it was like an upside nose,” she told ‘Barcroft TV.’ “I didn't really know what to make of it — I was just in shock, but I don't really let it get in the way of my life. It certainly helped explain a lot of things.”

The condition is called uterus didelphys, which develops while a fetus is in the womb. If the two small tubes known as Mullerian ducts experience developmental issues within the genital tract, they fail to create one uterus and instead create separate structures.
The San-Francisco native recalled experiencing extended period cycles, and severe cramps and bowel movements. While it does not impact Cassandra's severe acne condition, it could lead to future complications — though doctors don't believe it will impact conception or inflict cancer.

"As far as my understanding of how it affects a person's sex life — for some people having two vaginas can make it very painful — for others I assume there are more nerve endings so it could be more pleasurable," she adds.
