A WOMEN who doctors thought she had a UTI actually stuck a glass cup in her bladder for 4 years.
This 45-year-old man presented to the hospital complaining of typical lower UTI (urinary tract infection) symptoms, such as leakage.
But doctors were shocked when scans showed a glass inside her bladder.
It is created by a bladder stone 8cm wide, usually so small that it is difficult to see with the naked eye.
The woman from Tunisia revealed she used the drinking glass as a sex toy a few years ago.
Apparently she inserted it into the urethra – the hole where women pee – and not the vagina.
Her case was published in a medical journalincluding incredible scans and pictures of vitreous and bladder stones.
While the medical report makes no mention of it, the woman may have been practicing what is known as “vagina“.
As reported by Wed MD, the risky activity involves inserting a glass or object into the urethra – the tube through which urine passes – to “enhance sexual pleasure and arousal”.
Doctors have had reports of people intentionally putting things there, either for mental health issues or for pleasure – but it’s not recommended.
The report notes: “Motives frequently associated with the presence of foreign agencies in the bladder of a sexual or erotic nature.
“Many different objects have been inserted into the bladder and many patients are unable to remove themselves and are embarrassed to go to the doctor.
The patient presented to the emergency department at Habib Bourguiba Academic Hospital complaining of UTI symptoms.
She reported that she had cystitis (cystitis) several times, but it was never investigated.
The report said the woman had no blood in her urine, nor did she suffer from urinary incontinence.
But she had a higher than normal amount of red blood cells, indicating that her body was fighting an infection.
Very small bladder stones, usually no more than a few centimeters wide – this patient was 8cm.
They develop from hard mineral clumps that develop when urine is not passed bladder.
However, they can develop around a foreign object in the bladder, such as a glass cup.
In this case, the doctors performed surgery to remove the bladder stone.
They then broke it open to reveal the glass – still intact – that had been in her body for years.
Two days later, the woman recovered and was well enough to go home.
The report concluded: “Complex forms are those that are diagnosed late and are often associated with recurrent urinary tract infections, stones, and/or fistulas.
“The best treatment remains prevention by balancing the underlying cause disorder and by providing good sex education.”
