A woman has had a cockroach removed from her vagina after she went to doctors complaining of an 'extremely strange' feeling in her genitals, as per Daily Mail reports.
The patient, who has not been named, came to the clinic in Honduras complaining of feeling 'extremely restless, agitated and sweaty'.
She had also been unable to sleep the previous night and said it felt like something 'extremely strange' was in her vagina.
Doctors were stunned when an examination revealed the dead insect inside her.
It was immediately removed and the woman was discharged after being checked for injuries.
Medics who treated the woman in Tegucigalpa, the country's capital, said they had previously dealt with condoms and sex toys in patients' private parts
But they were 'very anxious' when they spotted the insect — a first for the hospital.
Dr Marco Calix, a gynecologist who looked after the patient, said: '[The woman] said she had something unusual in her vagina.
'When I introduced the speculum, I could see that it was an insect. In fact, I had to take out something like a cockroach.'
A speculum is a piece of equipment used by medics to see inside parts of the body, such as a vagina.
It was unclear how the cockroach got into the woman's body or how long it had been there for.
But Dr Calix said the woman was from a 'rural area' and that it was already dead when the insect was removed.
A number of cases of insects getting stuck inside people are reported annually, with doctors at one Alabama hospital saying they deal with up to five cases a year.
But this is normally in areas such as the ears.
It is extremely rare for a cockroach — the most common insect to crawl into someone, according to experts — to be spotted inside someone's vagina.
Insects that get into the body can be dangerous because they could scratch sensitive tissue, such as in the vagina or ear, triggering an infection.
Warning signs of problems include pain or swelling at the affected site.
Dr Calix added that, with vaginas, insects getting stuck inside them could cause abnormal or foul-smelling discharge, bleeding, swelling or a rash.
