Generally encountered in paediatrics age group, vaginal foreign body is a rare presentation in gynaecological clinics. Inserted as a part of sexual abuse, gratification or psychiatric disorder, these foreign bodies can present with a varied symptomatology. We report a case of 22-year-old female, a victim of domestic violence, who had a foreign body inserted in the vagina which was forgotten. Later it was discovered when she presented at term with cervical dystocia.
