Woman’s uterus pops out of her vagina ‘after she DANCED too hard’

This is horrific

May 13 2019

A woman was dancing so hard and energetically, she says, that her uterus came out of her vagina. 

The unnamed woman feared that the mysterious fleshy object might be a tumour and raced straight to hospital. 

She told Dr Song Hongjuan, a supervisor at the Maternal and Child Health Centre in Xuzhou, in China's Jiangsu Province, that something had poked out of her vagina “a little” in the past but it was nothing as dramatic as her current injury. 

She said that she felt it happen during a vigorous dance workout.

Dr Song admitted that she thought it unlikely that the dancing had caused the problem, even though the woman was convinced.

Uterine prolapse, which is the term used for this kind of injury, is when pelvic floor muscles and ligaments stretch and weaken and no longer provide enough support for the uterus.

As a result, the uterus can slip down into the vagina and can protrude out of it. It can happen to women of any age. 

Dr Song confirmed that she and her team had performed surgery on the woman, and that she would make a full recovery.
