“genetically born a man” – pathetically written headline article. Really?! She’s a woman.

A woman has been able to give birth to twins despite told she was technically a man and had neither ovaries nor fallopian tubes.

Throughout her teenage years, Hayley Haynes had never a period and aged 19 she was told by doctors she would never conceive due to a rare condition called androgen insensitivity syndrome.

But with the help of IVF and doctors growing a womb inside her, she has finally been able to give birth to twin babies called Avery and Darcey.

The 28-year-old told the Daily Mirror: ‘When they told me I had no womb, I was so confused I felt sick, my biggest fear was never having children

‘Suddenly a huge piece of my life was missing, I felt like half a woman and was embarrassed.

‘How I was going to tell a guy I was genetically male when I started dating?’
