Woman Inserts Metal Spring in Vagina as Birth Control


Birth control pills and contraceptives are widely available to women who wish to prevent pregnancy. However, a 31-year-old woman from Zhongshan in Guangdong Province, South China has used an unusual tool to avoid getting pregnant: a metal spring.

However, the woman, a mom of three, went to Minzhong Hospital requesting for an abortion because she was five months pregnant. According to Unilad, a British Internet media company and website owned by LADbible Group, she was in her second trimester at that time when she asks the termination. The doctors made a shocking discovery upon checking on the health of the baby. Fu Junhong, a gynecologist, found an intrauterine device (IUD) struck in her body. “She was five months pregnant and came to our hospital for an abortion procedure. During our checks, we found rings lodged between her vagina and cervix – it was a spring which had already been enveloped by her vaginal tissue,” he said.

According to the UK National Health Service, an IUD is a small T-shaped plastic and copper device which is put into a woman’s uterus and releases copper to alter the cervical mucus. This makes it hard for sperm to reach an egg and survive.

The spring, which measured five centimeters (two inches), was immediately removed via emergency surgery which lasted for 40 minutes. According to an article by The Star, an English-language newspaper in Malaysia, the surgeons used a pair of pliers to cut the metal coil into seven parts. After that, the metal spring was removed from the woman’s body piece by piece. Fortunately, she suffered no tissue damage or infection. She was also released from the hospital shortly afterward.

According to Dr. Fu, the woman did it by herself for about half a year ago. He described as “greatly unscientific, and very unhygienic.” “She thought inserting a spring into her body would prevent further pregnancies. She found it on the floor of her workshop. She picked it up, washed it and then inserted it. It is unclear what she does for a living,” she added.
