A YOUNG woman accidentally snapped the vagina-tightening rod she was using inside her and had to seek a month-long treatment after she came down with vaginitis and cervicitis (inflammation of the vagina and cervix respectively).
The 20-year-old from Hong Kong had to be admitted in a hospital for four days and only recovered recently after the long treatment, reported China Press.
A doctor said she would still be able to conceive in the future.
The girl said that her friend helped her purchase the herbal vagina-tightening rod from an online seller and that she had no problems using it for the first time but accidentally broke the rod when using it for the second time.
She complained of pain at her private parts several days later and went for an examination at the hospital. The chemical liquid that leaked from the broken rod was believed to have caused the inflammation.

The eagles, which also have their global travel passports, behaved well and were rather quiet throughout the four-hour journey.
A Chinese netizen poked fun at the incident after it went viral online: “Would he dare come and show off in China? In Guangdong, you will see 12 eagles boarding and then 12 hotpots of delicacy arriving.”
