Woman uses potato as contraceptive, grows roots in her vagina

Happy National Potato Day!

THE HUMBLE POTATO. Good mashed, boiled, roasted, in chips. Not good as a contraceptive. Let it be known.

A Colombian woman complaining of abdominal pains shocked doctors when they discovered a potato growing roots in her vagina.

We’ll just let that sink in for a minute.

According to Jezebel, the 22-year-old told doctors that her mother advised her to use a potato as a contraceptive.

She placed the potato in her vagina and after two weeks, it began to grow roots.

The potato and roots were removed without surgery and the woman is on the mend, but many feel it highlights the serious issue of young Colombians rejecting traditional birth control methods.

This is why sex education is essential. ESSENTIAL.
