London: A woman, who was born with no reproductive organs, has given birth to beautiful twin girls, Avery and Darcey, after undergoing a revolutionary hormone therapy to help her grow a womb.
The 28-year-old Hayley Haynes was told at the age of 19 that she could never have children, because she suffered from a rare medical condition, known as androgen insensitivity syndrome, which meant she was genetically a man, the Daily Express reported.
Haynes said that when they told her she had no womb, she was so confused and felt sick as her biggest fear was never having children.
She added that suddenly a huge piece of her life was missing and felt like half a woman and was embarrassed as she didn't know how to tell a guy that she was genetically male when she started dating.
The first ray of hope came in 2007, when a special-ist at the Royal Derby Hospital found that Hayley did have a tiny womb which had been missed on previous scans.
Buoyed by the news, brave Hayley embarked on a grueling course of hormone tablet treatment designed to give her body the right levels of progesterone and oestrogen. The pills stopped the would-be mum from suffering crippling osteoporosis and created an environment in which her womb could grow.
Throughout the treatment her husband Sam stood by her side, first as a friend and then as her partner, to which she said that he's been her confidant from day one and so supportive.
Sam added that she told him no man would want her and he told her that any man worth having would, adding it's quite romantic that man turned out to be him.
