A WOMAN suffered a horrific vagina injury after being flung from a jet ski and landing directly on her handle bars.
The 25-year-old was left with a large blood clot on her vulva that was continuing to swell and had to be surgically drained.

She was in so much pain that by the time she saw medics at a hospital in New York three days later, she could barely walk.
According to the case report, published in the British Medical Journal, the unnamed woman immediately went to A&E after the freak accident.
But the haematoma continued to slowly expand and three days later, in July 2018, she sought a second opinion at Professional Brooklyn Gynecological Services.
There she told a doctor she had been tossed off her jet ski and landed on her handlebars.
They found she had sustained a large vulvar haematoma – a collection of clotted blood vessels on the external part of her genitalia, measuring 12cm.
She was in excruciating pain and medics made the decision to drain the wound surgically.
Dr Amir Marashi, who treated the woman at his Brooklyn clinic, told DailyMail.com: “It was like almost having a grapefruit in between her legs.
“It was a pretty large haematoma, really deep, and she couldn’t walk around.”

The woman was concerned about permanent scarring of her private parts, so the procedure was done intravaginally instead of externally.
The gynaecologist made an incision at the thinnest point of the haematoma on the left vaginal sidewall, to relieve the pressure on the wound and reduce the swelling.
She was then sewn up using five stitches with gaps to allow the blood clot to drain safely.Scar worries
The woman, writing in the case report, said: “When I noticed the swelling outside my vagina, I was scared. I was concerned if my vagina would ever look the same again.
“The pain, pressure and discomfort were excruciating and so I sought a second opinion.
“With the failure of conservative treatment, I felt that I was heading towards surgery, which made me increasingly anxious.

“I was worried about scarring my private parts permanently.
“The physician understood my concern of external scarring and reassured me that he would attempt to drain the haematoma from inside the vagina.
“Postsurgery, I felt immediate relief and the healing process was uneventful.
“I was pleasantly surprised as my vagina looked like nothing had ever happened.

Haematomas occur when blood vessels rupture, usually during an injury, and blood collects in the nearby tissue.
A vulvar haematoma is when the blood pools in the vulva – the external part of the female genitalia – and are very rare with an incidence rate of about 3.7 percent.
