Doctors Find Potato Growing In Woman's Vagina
Using contraceptive pills and condoms are among the most effective and widely used methods of preventing pregnancy among couples, but a woman from Honda, Colombia, adopted a rather bizarre means of contraception. She inserted a potato inside her private parts to avoid getting pregnant.
The 22-year-old woman was hospitalized because of severe lower abdominal pain this week and it turned out that the cause was her potato contraceptive.
Carolina Rojas, the nurse who examined the woman, initially thought that it was some sort of a joke when she saw roots emerging from the woman's vagina, but the patient said that she had indeed inserted the potato inside her to prevent pregnancy.
The woman's mother is apparently to blame for giving the advice to her naive young daughter.
"My mom told me that if I didn't want to get pregnant, I should put a potato up there, and I believed her," the woman said.
