Josephene Myrtle Corbin, the Four-Legged Woman, was born in Lincoln County, Tennessee in 1868. Rather than having a parasitic twin, Myrtle’s extra legs resulted from an even rarer form of conjoined twinning known as dipygus, which gave her two complete bodies from the waist down. She had two small pelves side-by-side, and each of her smaller inner legs was paired with one of her outer legs. She could move the smaller legs but was unable to use them for walking. At the age of 19, she married a doctor named Clinton Bicknell and had four daughters and a son. It has been said that three of her children were born from one set of organs, two from the other. Myrtle died on May 6, 1928.
From Anomalies and Curiosities of Medicine by George M. Gould and Walter L. Pyle:
Wells a describes Mrs. B., aged twenty, still alive and healthy. The duplication in this case begins just above the waist, the spinal column dividing at the third lumbar vertebra, below this point everything being double. Micturition and defecation occur at different times, but menstruation occurs simultaneously. She was married at nineteen, and became pregnant a year later on the left side, but abortion was induced at the fourth month on account of persistent nausea and the expectation of impossible delivery. Whaley, in speaking of this case, said Mrs. B. utilized her outside legs for walking; he also remarks that when he informed her that she was pregnant on the left side she replied, “I think you are mistaken; if it had been on my right side I would come nearer believing it;”–and after further questioning he found, from the patient’s observation, that her right genitals were almost invariably used for coitus.
(the name Mrs. B. refers to Myrtle’s married name, Bicknell.)
A WOMAN told yesterday how a one-in-a-million medical condition led to her being born with TWO fully-formed vaginas.
Hazel Jones, 27, said it means she has lost her virginity TWICE.
But she added she was so at ease with her body that she goes to sex clubs with her husband.
First, Hazel told ITV1’s This Morning hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield she was 18 before being diagnosed with uterus didelphys.
It occurs when a barrier between two tubes that form the uterus fails to break down during development, leaving two internal channels.
Hazel, of High Wycombe, Bucks, did not realise she was different until her periods started at 14. She said: “I told friends. They looked even more confused than me.”
She went to hospital four years later to learn the truth. She added: “I thought it was amazing.”
Hazel told The Sun last night she and hubby Riki visited fetish clubs, explaining: “It shows how relaxed I am.
“My quirky condition does not make me shy or hold me back. In fact, it’s something I celebrate.”
