An Ohio woman is suing her gynecologist after he mistakenly sprayed her genitals with drain cleaner, rendering her unable to have more children.

According to Opposing View, the woman only known as Laura claims that, aside from preventing her from having more kids, this grave mistake has also left her in terrible pain and ruined her and her husband’s sex life.

The incident occurred at Paragon Health in Summit County, Ohio, where Laura was scheduled to have a routine examination.

While it’s not uncommon for a doctor to use vinegar while conducting such examinations, the liquid sprayed on Laura immediately brought extreme pain and a burning sensation in her genital area.

“It was like an open cut with rubbing alcohol being poured into it,” she told WKYC.

The solution reportedly contained potassium hydroxide, a chemical usually used to unclog drains and pipes.

“It soaks in and continues to soak in and burns from the inside out. It’s not meant to go inside anyone’s body,” said Laura’s husband Paul.

Since the accident, Paul has been demonstrating outside Paragon with signs saying that the doctor has permanently injured his wife.

According to Opposing View, the couple’s lawsuit lists Paragon Health associate Dr. John Black along with several other unnamed employees as defendants.

The lawsuit states that, after suspecting something went wrong, Black attempted to irrigate the affected area with saline solution and a cream to numb the pain.

This wouldn’t be so outrageous if Black had been wearing gloves.

“He puts an ungloved dirty finger inside her and rubs a numbing cream inside her. It’s disgusting,” said Paul.

Laura says the doctor told her:

“I hope you’re not offended. I just want to let you know I’ve been married forever, and I don’t have any diseases.”

But when Laura went to the emergency room at Akron General Hospital immediately after, doctors found a plastic bottle cap behind her cervix.

When the hospital called Paragon to determine the pH level of the used liquid, associates claimed it was a harmless 7.5.

The hospital later discovered it was really 12 or higher.

Paragon maintains that Black used a vinegar solution on Laura and denies all other allegations in the lawsuit.

Since the incident, Laura says she is experiencing ongoing bleeding and can’t enjoy simple activities like swimming with her two kids.

She said she and her husband were hoping to have more children, but she believes she will now need a hysterectomy.

“This a scenario that no woman would ever, ever imagine,” she said.
