    Default Woman hospitalised after using a potato as a contraceptive and it starts to sprout

    I wasn't sure whether or not to put this in laughs and oddities but as it's a news story...

    (Psst! Shellee! It wasn't Florida for a change! but it might explain Peyton Manning....)


    Woman who used a potato as a contraceptive is hospitalised after it began to grow roots



    • The 22-year-old Colombian woman had been given the advice by her mother
    • Went to hospital complaining of abdominal pains and was examined
    • Nurse discovered potato roots growing out of the woman's vagina
    • Potato was extracted and doctors say there will be no lasting damage


    Doctors treating a woman for stomach pain were shocked to find a very unlikely cause for it - a potato inside her vagina.
    The 22-year-old woman, from Colombia, was advised by her mother to use the technique to avoid becoming pregnant.
    But by the time doctors discovered the potato, it had apparently germinated and grown roots inside her.

    The woman, from Colombia, was advised by her mother to use the potato to avoid becoming pregnant

    The story was covered by Colombia Reports, a large news website in the country.
    It claims the unnamed woman told doctors: 'My mum told me that if I didn't want to get pregnant, I should put a potato up there, and I believed her.'
    The discovery was made when the woman, from the central Colombian town of Honda, went to hospital complaining of abdominal pains.
    When a nurse examined her, she found roots from the potato that had grown.
    However after removing it, doctors confirmed there would be no lasting damage to the woman's health.
    Medical staff at the hospital have criticised the woman's mother for the terrible contraceptive advice.

    The bizarre case sheds light on a lack of sex education, despite it being mandatory in the South American country.
    Research conducted by the Colombian Institute of Family Welfare - to try and reduce high levels of teenage pregnancy - found a startling lack of awareness about contraception in young people.
    Girls are often pressured into having unsafe sex, the campaign found.
    Maria Eugenia Rosselli, the Colombian Ministry of Education sociologist was reported said the lack of 'sex talk' between young people and their parents had created a void of information.
    This, in turn, had created high levels of sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies.

    The case highlights a lack of sex education in the country, which has high levels of sexually transmitted diseases and unwanted pregnancies

    I told ya - Peyton Manning is all the proof you need that not only does it happen but that it doesn't work.

    I'm kind of wondering if mom's advice leaned towards "you can't get a penis up your vagina, if there is a potato in there" variety. Seriously though, how does one forget a potato up there? I know there is a fingerling potato joke in here somewhere too, but I'm struggling to understand how you forget a potato in your vagina. I imagine it would feel like a giant cooter turd or something, aka so uncomfortable you can't possibly forget that it's in there.

    I'm wondering how you are supposed to get it out after getting it in? A dick is only going to jam a potato in further and I'm guessing normal squatting/squeezing isn't going to be enough to do the job. I mean, I know we can squeeze a baby out of there but we have all kinds of hormones going on to enable that to happen, and they aren't going to be there for a potato (!) so I guess it comes down to either BBQ tongs or an embarrassing trip to A&E.

    I would have an extraction team ready, with Chuck Norris leading it.

    Also, what about hygiene? Periods and vagina potatoes would make for quite a nasty environment. Or maybe that's what fertilized the potato?

    I think this is what caused the Irish famine of 1845........

    ^^^ That's right, Witchcurl. And due to the Irish Curse, most Irish men didn't notice a problem at all until it was too late.

    Warm and moist - perfect environment for it to start sprouting in record time. But yeah, I hadn't thought about periods.... Barf!
