She has suffered with acne for her whole life. She has cramps that are extremely intense and has her period for at least three weeks out of the month.

With Bankson the [email protected] canal is split into two separate canals each with their own uterus. Each uterus has one fallopian tube and one ovary.
Bankson was worried about her ability to have children, whether it will affect her s*x life at all, and whether she was more susceptible to ovarian cancer than other women. Her doctor stated that she was not at a higher risk for cancer. She said many women don’t even know that they have this same issue until they are pregnant so her ability to have children should not be affected other than the fact that it may be harder to get pregnant.

She also reaches out to talk about bullying and to inspire others who are going through the same thing that she went through when she was younger. The doctor had no answer as to why she had cystic acne as badly as she did but said that it was not related to her condition.
