"Sex is like doing the lottery!": Woman discovers she has two vaginas
Colorado Springs, Colorado - For years, Reiley Davis suffered from unbearable pain, with no one being able to help her. Today, she finally knows the incredible truth.
The 21-year-old from Colarado Springs has lived with "excruciating" pain, especially during her period, which often came every two weeks from the time she was 12.
It was "probably the worst pain of my life," she told The Sun about her menstruation.
"I was taking muscle relaxers and ibuprofen every day and I couldn't go to school as I was literally dreading the pain."
Davis made regular trips to the hospital, but doctors were at a loss.
"It felt like my abdomen area was on fire. It was just hot to the touch," she said.
It wasn't until she was 16 that Davis would finally uncover her condition through a smear test: She had two vaginas, two cervixes, and two wombs!
The unusual condition called uterus didelphys affects around one in 2,000 to 3,000 women.
While Davis was immensely relieved to finally know what was going on with her, her double sex organs are giving her anything but double the joy.
She said half the time she has intercourse, her orgasms are extremely painful. Both of her uteruses are most likely contracting at the same time, for an ultra-intense sensation.
"With the orgasms, I'm still dealing with that, so there's a 50/50 chance they do hurt or they don't, so I just kind of have to go with it," Davis said.
"It's like doing the lottery," she added.
Orgasms are either pleasurable or "excruciatingly painful"
Davis has had to endure even more devastation when learning to live with her unique condition.
"I have a 40% chance of ever having kids, so that was kind of heartbreaking to me," she explained.
Women living with uterus didelphys are more prone to having miscarriages, delivering prematurely, or having their fetuses not being able to fully form in a half-sized womb.
By hearing about others with the same condition, she doesn't feel so alone.
"I wanted to make people knowledgeable that this is actually a thing and there's different forms of it," she said. "It's good to educate people, like, 'Hey, this is what it's like, this is what I went through and this is my own experience.'"
She continues to share her ongoing struggles with different areas of her health, in hopes it will have a positive effect on others.
