Today is Friday 13th, a day to celebrate the Goddess of Love, Sex and Fertility. For many people, this could be either the luckiest or unluckiest day. So far we have had three Friday 13ths in 2012 – January, April and July. So what’s the BIG deal? Well, if you believe in the urban legends of Friday 13th as being the unluckiest day you’d probably would not walk under a ladder, go get a hair cut, or change your bedsheets for fear of of something bad will happen. You many not even leave the house! According to the Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute, there is an estimated 17 to 21 million people who have some phobia or fear of Friday the 13th in the United States and it’s scientifically known as Paraskevidekatriaphobia .
I am not superstitious but I am curious about the origins of Friday 13th and it’s connection to sex and love and I bet you are too.

The stories are heartbreaking. I cried. A. LOT. But I feel that I am more educated too.

A 27 year-old woman named Hazel Jones, from the United Kingdom, made worldwide news this past week when she revealed about her uncommon medical condition in which she has two vaginas, two uteruses and two cervixes. Uterus didelphys or “double uterus” is rare and often times goes undiagnosed.
According to MayoClinic.com, in a female fetus when the uterus develops it starts out as two small tubes, which eventually join to create the uterus. Sometimes, however, the tubes may not join completely and instead each tube will develop into a separate structure causing a “double uterus”. In some cases, the uterus share a set of fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix and vagina; while at other times, you can have a two sets of the female reproductive organs.Read More»
