In brief: Yes, in women.

In general, hernias are much more common in men than women (these are typically groin or inguinal hernias); however, femoral hernias are more common in women.
Likewise, it is more common to have a hernia on one side rather than both, but "double" hernias do occur in about 10% of people who have a hernia on one side.
