Foreign Body, Vagina (cont.)

Vagina Foreign Body Prognosis

Once the vaginal foreign body is removed, related symptoms of infection, pain, and discharge should quickly resolve.

  • If the foreign body has been in the vagina for a long period of time and has caused an infection, antibiotics may be prescribed; however, they are not customarily required.
  • Serious complications rarely occur, if infection enters the deep pelvic tissues or peritoneal cavity. Infections in the pelvis can cause secondary inflammation and scarring, resulting in pain or infertility.
