Oh dear god this one is brutal. You're already cringing after reading the headline, aren't you? Well, cringe on, because it's as bad as you feared.

Theresa Bartram, from Brighton, UK, was left with a dangerous vagina after undergoing surgery to correct incontinence after giving birth. The surgery, which took place in 2007, involved a mesh sling (called transvaginal tape, or TVT) inserted to hold up the woman's prolapsed bladder.

All seemed fine until two years later, when Bartram and her fella were having sex, and her vagina reportedly did some serious damage to his penis. Speaking to the Sun, Bartram said, “It was like it had grown teeth." (It's like a real vagina dentata!)

She continued, "His willy was bright red and spouting blood. There was a big red stain spreading between us on the sheets. After that he was scared of my lady garden and approached it as if it was a Venus flytrap and he was a bluebottle." YIKES. (Translations: bluebottle—common fly; Venus flytrap—carnivorous plant; lady garden—lady garden).

Theresa Bartram and her partner (and his penis) were too frightened to have sex again, and ended up breaking up. Bartram was sure it was the mesh inside her, but doctors told her she was fine.

Long story short (you can read the whole saga at the Sun), only when Bartram's vagina began (oh, god, no) leaking green pus and (gag) emitting a bad smell in 2015 was the poor women given a proper, thorough examination. It turned out the mesh had grown into the wall of her vagina, causing an abscess, which then got infected. The mesh had also been inserted too low, and become hardened, which was caused the damage to her boyfriend's man snake. Theresa Bartram told the Sun, “It felt like razor-sharp teeth, hence why it had ripped a chunk from my boyfriend’s willy."

The mesh was removed but Bartram claims her vagina is now numb and she is utterly incontinent. Great job, doctors! She said, "I was told this simple procedure would cure my incontinence and give me more confidence in the bedroom, but it has ruined my life. It made my vagina deadly and forced me into a life of celibacy. It could have killed me."

It's a blessing she's still alive, but what a horrible ordeal, and the last effects sound devastating. According to the Sun, use of the TVT mesh is being reevaluated around the world after thousands of people reported injuries or damage from the surgery.
