A woman in Scotland's life was at risk as she had a five-inch sex toy inside her for 10 years without even knowing it, a report has claimed.

The 38-year-old woman, who has not been named, arrived at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, shaking and feeling lethargic as well as complaining of weight loss.

When doctors examined her, they found the object protruding into her bladder from her vagina - causing her to suffer from a life-threatening 'vesicovaginal fistula' – which left urine leaking into her vagina.

She also had an obstructive uropathy, where a blockage in her bladder had caused urine to seep into the kidneys.

Medics were further shocked when the woman revealed she had used the sex toy with her partner ten years ago.

She also admitted she could not remember whether or not she had removed it as she was drunk at the time.

The case was reported in the Journal of Sexual Medicine and is the longest time on record a sex toy has ever been left inside someone's vagina.
