YouTube Star Cassandra Bankson Just Discovered She Has 2 Vaginas
Model Cassandra Bankson was best known for her popular YouTube beauty vlog, DiamondsAndHeels14, in which offered makeup tips for women with bad acne. But after today, that will be her second claim to fame, as she recently revealed that a trip to the gyno turned up a second vagina.
According to Cosmopolitan UK, Bankson’s gynecological exam and subsequent tests revealed she’s also got two cervixes, two uteri and just one kidney. The condition, known as uterus didelphys, affects one out of every 3,000 women. “Most vaginas are one large cavity but this is a complete separation into two different cavities,” Bankson told Bancroft TV. “I was shocked and the doctor explained to me that it was like an upside nose.I didn’t really know what to make of it – I was just in shock but I don’t really let it get in the way of my life. It certainly helped explain a lot of things.” For years, Bankson suffered from severe menstrual cramps and periods that lasted a full month or happened more than once in a month, which doctors now believe was the result of her condition. Bankson is also eager to see if this also explains her lifelong struggle with severe acne. Knowledge is power, as they say.
Good for Bankson for being so candid about a condition that others might find embarrassing. Own it, girl! Check out her full interview above. [Death and Taxes]
