User avatar Hello,
This is a deviation which occurs in the cell division process. Sometimes women have two of other organs such as uterus as well. You did not mention if you have other duplication such as a septate uterus.

This should not interfere with sexual activity as the cervix is at the top of the vagina. Whether or not it affects your delivery will have to be determined by your doctor. Most likely one opening is connected to the uterus and I would not expect a problem with the other but your doctor would have to determine this, possibly at the time of delivery. Since this is an older post, perhaps you will be able to update us. The fact that you reached this stage in your gestation suggests a good outcome.

Best wishes.
