A year-old woman in Scotland who told doctors she was suffering from shaking, incontinence and severe weight loss turned out to have a sex toy stuck inside her vagina that had been there for 10 years, according to an article published in the June edition of the Journal of Sexual Medicine. The woman -- who the article notes was of normal intelligence -- told doctors she used the five-inch toy in a drunken sexual encounter a decade ago and didn't remember whether she took it out or not , the Daily Mail reported. By the time surgeons found it, the toy's effects were potentially life-threatening.

I used to really love sex. Like, there was a point in my life my early to mid-twenties when I was pretty convinced regular sex was one of the only good reasons to be in a relationship. But I also have a toddler, and I work from home. I guess life just got in the way of dating. Adopting my daughter was the best thing to ever happen to me. But the length of my dry spell has been the butt of plenty of jokes among my friends. The running joke has been my vagina is going to seal up from lack of use. Mostly, I brush these jokes off. Or I join in on them, recognizing that the lack of sex or even just the lack of chemistry in my life right now is kind of depressing.
When your vagina feels very tight, as though nothing could go inside, you may have a condition called vaginismus. In almost all cases, the vulva and vagina are completely healthy. Primary vaginismus, where nothing has ever entered the vagina, not even a tampon, is common among girls who have had a very loving, but sometimes over-protective background. They may have grown up with well-meaning but powerful taboos around sex and find it hard to move past that. You can get help if you have vaginismus. Trainers are plastic tubes that allow women to learn to insert something into their vagina. They should only be used under professional guidance.
