Case: A 35-year-old woman had a rare condition called uterine didelphys, results when the uterus doesn’t form properly during development and instead forms two uteruses. So, she also had two cervixes (the neck-like structure that connects the uterus to the vagina), but one vagina, which is not unusual for people with this condition. When she is 12 years old doctors found that she had to uteruses and she had surgery to remove a partition that separated her vagina in two, giving her a single vagina but during at cervical cancer screening, she was found to have an HPV infection in her left cervix with precancerous lesions which is highly risk and possible to convert cancerous.
The women right cervix is free from infection and precancerous lesions, after a while she stopped to take the treatment for removal of precancerous lesions and after one year later she is free from HPV in both cervixes i.e. test is negative but when she pregnant it again appeared and now for both cervixes must have been exposed to the same HPV virus.

So many cases are determined like this that women are suffering from HPV in early stages of pregnancy; she can get this infection from his husband also when they are sexually contacted. So, as a case the conclusion, the doctor suggests that in women with two cervixes “each cervix should undergo independent evaluation” for cervical abnormalities and HPV.
