A highly unusual personal story was shared by blogger Michelle Barrow in a post ‘It Happened to Me.’ What happened was Michelle went for her annual OB/GYN visit only to find out that the most unusual thing got stuck in her vagina.
Weeks before the appointment, Michelle, a proud cat owner, had been feeling lower abdominal pain. After bringing this up to her gynecologist, the doctor immediately suspected an ovarian cyst. But then she took a closer look and found herself dumbstruck: “What is that? I’ve never seen anything like that. What the heck IS that thing?”
Michelle’s doctor didn’t lose any time to consult a fellow colleague on the thing she found in her patient’s vagina. Both gynecologists first though it was tampon string that got stuck in Michelle’s IUD. However, Michelle hadn’t been using tampons, only a menstrual cup.
Michelle could never have suspected her two cats, Cricket and Donut, to be the culprits.
After careful examination, the gynecologists managed to pull out what turned out to be a ball of cat hair.
“With her tweezers she holds up a glob about 2 inches long that looks distinctly furry and happens to be the exact same color as Donut. I’m speechless. The doctor’s waiting for me to say something but the only thought running through my head is:
“HOLY SHIT THAT IS CAT HAIR THERE HAS BEEN A BALL OF CAT HAIR INSIDE ME FOR A MONTH THAT IS CAT HAIR AND IT WAS IN MY VAGINA A HAIRBALL HAS BEEN CAUSING MY DISCOMFORT HOLY SHIT AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!”
Although there are many people who think that Michelle is simply gaining publicity by selling bizarre stories on the net, she claims quite the opposite:
“A few people have said stuff like, ‘I’ve had cats all my life and they always sleep with me and this has never happened so you must be lying!’” Barrow said. “I promise I wouldn’t make that up. Now I wish I’d taken a picture of it!” Barrow told New York Magazine.
When asked how a ball of cat hair made its way deep inside Michelle’s vagina, Michelle thinks it’s the bed sheets to blame. The thing is her cats sometimes sleep on the bed, and may have left some fur on it.
She writes: ‘My fiance and I don’t use condoms so it’d be easy for him to unknowingly have some hair on his penis and during sex, it’d be easy for that hair to migrate to my strings where everything got all tangled up. The thought still skeeves me out.’
After the unpleasant and rather disturbing case, Michelle only lets her cat sleep on the top quilt of her bed, rather than tucked between the sheets. She also checks her fiancé’s penis before sex. Smart thing to do!
Michelle says her abdominal pain is gone and everything feels normal regarding her vagina except for the occasional feeling of horror and unease that a hairball was once in there.
