A potato has been found growing inside a woman’s vagina.
The 22-year-old woman from Columbia – who has not been named – attempted to use the vegetable as a form of contraceptive and after visiting her doctor to complain of abdominal pains, it was discovered the potato had sprouted roots that had started to grow inside of her reproductive organs.
She’s reported by the Metro newspaper as saying: “My mum told me that if I didn’t want to get pregnant, I should put a potato up there. I believed her.”
Despite the possible dangers she faced, the woman in question will not suffer and lasting effects and the removal of the spud is not said to have required any surgery.”
