Foreign Body, Vagina (cont.)

Vagina Foreign Body Follow-up
If symptoms resolve once a foreign body is removed, follow-up may not be necessary.
Repeat examination may be recommended if the health care professional is not certain the entire object has been removed or if any complexity, such as secondary infection is diagnosed at the time of removal of the foreign body.
Removal of vaginal foreign bodies with secondary complications in the pelvis, bladder, or rectum may require extensive visits to assess healing and may require subsequent testing. Placement of foreign bodies by people with altered mental status may require psychiatric or substance abuse care.
