She further said she was diagnosed with the rare condition in 2015 after an MRI scan and had to undergo a series of surgeries.

Amoah said she also suffered Endometriosis; a sexual disorder in which tissues linings of the uterus grows outside the uterus.

“I discovered I had a double womb and a double vagina canal in 2015 after an MRI scan, so I had to undergo about 7 surgeries.

“I had a premature baby after four years of not conceiving, and going through such health situations wasn’t easy,” she said.

According to her “research says it can be found in one out of 350 women and the person might not even know she has it”.
