Foreign Body, Vagina (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Larger objects and objects causing painful infections will require anesthesia for pain and relaxation of vaginal muscles. Objects that have migrated from the vagina to the abdomen, bladder, or rectum; or to other parts of the body will require surgery for removal. An exploratory procedure with assistance of specialists in urology or bowel surgery may be needed.
Once the object is removed and antibiotic medication is given, infection, fever, pain, and vaginal discharge should soon clear up.
