A 38-year-old Scottish woman who complained to doctors about weight loss, incontinence, and lethargy had a sex toy inside her vagina that had been in place for ten years, according to a report in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
Surgeons at the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary removed the five-inch toy, reporting that it had caused the woman near-life-threatening damage. She had a condition called vesicovaginal ﬁstula — a passage that allows urine to flow into the vagina — the Daily Mail reports, as well as a obstructive uropathy, which causes urine to become backed up in the kidneys.
The woman said she used the toy one drunken night with her partner a decade ago, and that she couldn't remember whether she had removed it (she had not, apparently). According to the Journal of Sexual Medicine, she can now claim the dubious honor of having held a sex toy in her vagina for a longer time than anybody else in the world. Congratulations!
