A teenager has finally been diagnosed as having two sets of reproductive organs after being dismissed by doctors, telling her issues were nothing more than ‘period pains’.
Molly-Rose Taylor, 19, was diagnosed with the rare condition known as uterus didelphys – which caused her to have two vaginas, two cervixes and two wombs.
