A 37-year-old man is preparing to have a hysterectomy after specialists discovered he was born with a womb.
The Lancashire native believed he had bladder cancer after he saw blood in his urine. After undergoing several scans, doctors then discovered he had a full set of female reproductive organs.
Doctors believe Rob has a rare condition called persistent Müllerian duct syndrome (PMDS). This results in men developing both external male genitalia and internal female reproductive organs.
Most cases are diagnosed at birth or puberty, although people can discover they have intersex bodies — also known as differences of sex development (DSD), at any age.
Strangely enough, this surgery could lead to menopause. We’ll keep him in our prayers.
