A WOMAN with an extremely rare condition that caused her to be born with two wombs has revealed that everytime she gets her period she goes into labour.
Sophie Loader, 23, is struck down by painful contractions every month which mimic labour pains, because her second womb fills with blood – tricking her body into thinking it was giving birth.
The Mirror reports that Sophie, from Essex, was born with uterus bicornis, meaning she has two separate wombs but one vagina.

The mother of one says the only way she was able to cope with the pain is through breathing exercises.
After the birth of her child, Sophie had the contraceptive implant fitted and now only goes into ‘fake labour’ once every three months.
