A 24-year-old trans woman made headlines after suffering from a serious testicular torsion injury which left her in a dire state.
The trans woman inflicted the injury upon herself, unknowing the consequences of her actions. For years, she tucked her testicles back into her tummy, at least 4 times a week, ever since she reached adulthood. And that was just so she could hide her genitals.
The unidentified individual is yet to undergo complete gender reassignment, claiming how she picked up the habit after watching the famous television show ‘Ru Paul’s Drag Race.’ The show is renowned for making it viral when it came to trans individuals.
While the woman claims she suffered from immense pain, she still went ahead and opted to indulge in the act, shrugging it off as a part of her weekly routine.
However, as she recently attempted to pull them back down towards her scrotum region, she couldn’t believe what she was seeing. One of her testicles got twisted in a final attempt, completely cutting off the blood supply to her reproductive organs. Desperate times called for desperate actions and that’s when doctors simply had no choice but to surgically removed them.
Doctors explained how the woman suffered from a gruesome accident that is referrer to as testicular torsion. It left her with the most excruciating pain, causing the testicle to die and hence be removed.
Meanwhile, experts claim that the dangers related to testicle tucking are rare but this happens to be a very serious case that resulted in an unprecedented outcome.
Tucking is a very common practice in the world of trans as well as amongst the drag community.
In this case, the woman’s scrotum had turned red as well as swollen, citing an emergency condition with medics diagnosing her testicular torsion immediately.
