A woman was rushed to A&E after a vibrator got stuck up her bum

A young woman has spoken out about an incident which led to a vibrator getting stuck up her bum.

Emma Philips was in bed with her boyfriend at the time when she noticed that the vibrator was nowhere to be found. After looking around the bed to find it she realised that it was lodged up her back passage.

She spoke to Metro about the ordeal to warn people not to be afraid of getting help in embarrassing situations.

When Emma and her boyfriend first noticed the issue they tried using a fork handle and barbecue prongs in an effort to dislodge the item. When that didn't work they rushed Emma to hospital.

Speaking about the situation she explained, "We were looking around the bed in case it had fallen out. When I leaned on my stomach I could feel it vibrating – it was stuck low down and at one point was even wedged behind my hip."

She added, "For a while Lee was suggesting all kinds of wonderful options. He tried a kitchen fork handle, which we won’t be using again, and said he could feel it at one point but that it was too far up – it was a goner.


"He tried barbecue prongs too but after a certain point – after an hour of trying – we knew were going to have to go to hospital. We were both a bit shocked."

After failed attempts to remove it they called an ambulance. Emma recalled, "We’d both been drinking the night before so we couldn’t drive. I had to make the most embarrassing call to the ambulance at 7am. The call handler said 'tell me exactly what the problem is' so I had to tell him."

Once she was in the hospital they conducted x rays of the area to determine how high up the vibrator was located. Worry began to set in for Emma as she was told that if they weren't able to reach it from her bum they would have to go through her stomach instead.

Eventually they were able to conduct surgery by placing a camera down her throat while the surgeon pressed on her stomach to facilitate removing it manually.

After her ordeal, Emma is urging people not to be afraid to seek help if they're in a similar situation.

She said, "We weren’t going to do anything about it because of the embarrassment – there’s a big taboo about it – but we knew we needed help.

"I want to say a massive thank you to the ambulance crew and Wrexham Hospital staff who were really good, really reassuring and non-judgmental. There is a big taboo about this, but it really isn’t a big deal.

"You hear about people becoming really ill or even dying because they’re too embarrassed to get help – I would hate that to happen to someone."
