As a teenager, US woman Nicci experienced periods so heavy and pain so severe that she could barely function.
“There were times when I had to wear [adult nappies] because pads [and] tampons and pads weren’t sufficient enough,” she told BBC3.
But after medical investigation at the age of 17, she finally had an answer.
It was revealed that while Nicci’s vaginal opening appeared normal from the outside, internally it branched into a ‘Y’ shape.
On top of the torturous physical effects of her condition, came the psychological ones.
"I felt like a freak of nature," she told BBC3. "And then there's the other aspect of trying to explain to your partners, when you have sex, that, 'Hey, I'm a little different down there.'
“Some guys view you as a trophy and a goal when they find out, like: ‘I had sex with a girl with two vaginas'."
