A mother said she had leeches inserted into her vagina to help her conceive… and claims they gave her intense orgasms.
Nina Evans, who lives in London, was told she had no chance of having more children after being diagnosed with multiple myomas in her uterus when she was in her 40s and told she would need a hysterectomy.
But rather than lose hope the now 50-year-old turned to ‘leech therapy’ to beat the pre-cancerous fibroids in the muscle tissue of her womb, having more than 500 of the worms sucking on her blood.
She was desperate to have a second child – her first is now 28 – after marrying for a second time, The Sun reported.
‘I chose leeches because I was born in Lithuania and leech therapy is used for a whole range of illnesses, she said.
‘They’re considered a general cure for all, and I knew from experience, having had leech treatment before, that it gave you more energy and a more positive outlook.
‘The beauty of leeches is they attach to the body and release three substances a local anaesthetic to reduce pain, a local vasodilator to improve blood supply and hirudin and calin to prevent clotting.
