What is a Pediatric Duplicated Uterus and/or Vagina?

A duplicated uterus – or a double uterus – is a uterus that has two separate cavities. Each cavity may lead to its own cervix (womb). In some cases, females with a double uterus also have a duplicated vagina. Both vaginas may develop properly on both sides, or one vagina can be blocked. The duplicated vagina may or may not be apparent from physical appearance.

What are the signs and symptoms of a Pediatric Duplicated Uterus and/or Vagina?

In some cases, girls may have a duplicated uterus or vagina and not be aware of it. When symptoms do occur, they may include:

  • Abnormal bleeding during a period
  • Complications during pregnancy and delivery
  • Infertility
  • Unusual pain before or during a menstrual period

What are the causes of a Pediatric Duplicated Uterus and/or Vagina?
