An Indian farmer baffled doctors after they found a full female reproductive system in his abdomen.
The discovery was made after the man had visited hospital complaining about stomach pains. To remedy the situation surgeons operated to perform a hysterectomy on the man to remove the unwanted organs.
Doctors suspected a normal hernia, but when they carried out an exploratory operation they were shocked to discover it had been caused by a female uterus, ovaries, Fallopian tubes, a cervix and underdeveloped vaginal tissue.

LEFT HAND OF DARKNESS, by Ursela. Thoughts regarding this news item: Did he menstruate? Did his ovaries put female hormones into his system? Did they utilize these organs for transplant? Do you suppose the stomach pains were because the man had no ability to release monthly sluffed-off uterine tissue? This article gives the impression that the ovaries were functional, which would cause a rise and fall in female hormones leading to a monthly response from the uterus. I wonder about his pineal gland, and what it is like.

If you read the entire article the doctors explain the situation a bit further: Yeah, I think that the article is saying he absorbed his twin sister, as Ryu mentioned, too. Remember that guy from the same area who had that huge leg growing in him? They surgically removed it. Same idea. The book Twins and Super Twins states (paraphrased): Usually those reabsorptions become objects not connected to major organs. When they trigger to start growing again, typically they become cancerous. (I've known a couple of people who have died from that.) If the whole embryo were present, attached to a nutrie... [More]

Something is terribly wrong that there are so many birth defects in some of those areas in India. Could it be a form of polution? Something in the food and water? Chemical spills? They should be having some form of investigation by the medical field or something.

If you read the entire article the doctors explain the situation a bit further: It wasn't explained well enough. I would like to see some depth to this article. There are lots of questions we could be asking about this.

We all start as both, guess he was trying for balance. Can't blame it on PMS anymore.

If you read the article it says he had no health concerns from the female organs. His health problem was a hernia,at the time of repair the female organs were discovered. His hormones are that of a male and he had functioning male organs and fertile sperm; he is a father. Of course the children may not be his, but that is a different story for another time. It seems obvious that his female organs were not functional or only marginally so. It is an interesting story and brings up lots of questions about chimerism and inter-sexed persons. I too would like to know more just as a matter of curiosi... [More]
