Beauty vlogger Cassandra Bankson has wowed us yet again with her honesty, by revealing in a new video that she has two vaginas.
You may remember Cassandra from her famous YouTube tutorial on how to disguise severe acne with makeup. For this video, she was applauded for her frankness, as she cried and spoke about the difficulty of living with adult acne.
In a recent diagnosis, Ms. Bankson discovered that she had two vaginas – as well as two uterus, two cervixes, two fallopian tubes and only one kidney.
Bankson is dealing with this life-changing news with the humour and grace that has made her YouTube Channel, DiamondsAndHeels14, a hit amongst her 1 million subscribers.
“I kind of walked in and said, ‘Guess what, mom. I’m twice the woman – I have two vaginas’,” she told Daily Mail.
While she has spoken of her shock, she is also resolved to maintain her normal life.
Until recently, Bankson was unaware that she had this extremely rare condition, which is known in medical terms as uterus didelphys. While she suffered from symptoms such as severe lower back pain and periods which lasted for 28 days, her previous visits to the doctor left the condition undiagnosed.
It wasn’t until a doctor suggested that she undergo various tests, such as an ultrasound, MRI and blood tests, that her condition was discovered.
