Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Foreign objects in the female genital tract neglected for a long period of time may lead to many clinical problems including recurrent vaginal discharge and infertility. We present a case of 3-year long infertility, and 11-year long recurrent vaginal discharge in a 24-year-old female. She was treated empirically with several courses of antibiotics, which did not resolve her symptoms. Before her marriage, the family declined initial attempts to perform a physical examination due to fear of tearing the hymen, which has many social implications in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. After her marriage, she suffered from infertility and continued to have the vaginal discharge. On vaginal examination, she was found to have a foreign body in the uterine cervix. It was inserted 13 years ago, and lead to chronic vaginal discharge and infertility.
