This queer deformity happens when a single male has two penises. In most cases, the penis is slit along its shaft. It is believed that during the fourth week of a fetus development, the urolo-genital forming tract cut apart due to environmental factors or genetic mutations. The famous example is the DoubleDickDude, an anonymous dicephalic living on the east coast of America. His AMA on Reddit was one of the most famous to date. This condition is however not hereditary and occurs rarely; once in 2.5 million males.

The standard treatment for this condition would be to surgically remove the superfluous penis. Even so, some dicephalic cases may be too serious and may, therefore, need complex regeneration.

Uterus didelphys

This condition occurs when a woman uterus has two paired organs, meaning there are two cervixes and in a very rare occasion, two vaginas develop. During fetal development, two uterine horns combine to form a single uterus. This fusion doesn’t occur in these women. The condition occurs in less than 0.5% of women and can go unexposed unless a medical condition or pregnancy occurs. The incomplete division is associated with a number of complications such as premature births, infertility, and miscarriage. For this reason, women with this condition require regular attention and in 8 out of every 10 pregnancy cases, a caesarian section may be required.

On the other hand, women with complete duplication will in most cases lead normal lives i.e. sexual and pregnancy, consequently treatment may not be necessary. Of course, your health care provider would be the best person to determine whether you need treatment or not.
