Honda - A woman from Colombia had a potato removed from her vagina, after she placed it inside of her in an attempt to use it as a form of birth control.
According to Yahoo, the 22-year-old woman was told by her mother that placing a potato inside of her vagina was a method of birth control.
When the doctors found the potato, it germinated and grew roots, according to NZHerald. She said that she believed her mother when she told her that she could prevent becoming pregnant by putting the potato inside of her.
The potato was discovered when the woman went to the hospital because she was experiencing abdominal pains. When the nurse checked her out, she found the roots that had grown from the potato.
The potato was in the woman's vagina for about two weeks before she started to experience pains.
The potato was removed without surgery and doctors expect the woman to make a full recovery. She also shouldn't expect any lasting physical effects.
The story was covered by Columbia Reports, which said that this incident shows that there is a lack of education for young people as to what options they have at their disposal when they do become sexually active.
