The Daily Chilli
She has two vaginas
A British woman appeared on the Tyra Banks Show to talk about her unique condition: she has two vaginas!
Lauren Williams of Essex decided to go public for the first time with her bizarre medical condition. She found out, at the age of 25, that she was in fact born with two vaginas.
The unusual physiology has surprised doctors who claim that she can get twice pregnant at the same time.

However, they have recommended her to avoid such a situation, reports the New York Post.
Williams said that if in case she got pregnant in one uterus, doctors have advised her and her partner to use "condoms just in case I got pregnant in the other one."
"I'd had smear tests done before but they were all with nurses. This time I saw a doctor who said that something didn't look quite right down there and referred me to a gynecologist," she told Indian web site MiD-Day.
Doctors eventually found that she had two vaginas half the normal size of one and divided by a barrier. The wall has since been removed, allowing Williams to enjoy pain-free sex with a now normal-sized vagina. Williams, who is single, fully accepts her situation and even demonstrates a healthy sense of humor about the whole thing.
"As a veterinary nurse I compare myself to a cat as they've got two uterine horns! I accept who I am and any boyfriend will have to too inside and out," Williams tells Mid-DAY.
