Bone fragments within the cervix uteri are a rare occurrence, however, they may be occasionally found within the endometrial cavity and body of the uterus. We report the case histories of two single, sexually active women who each presented with a history of repeated termination of pregnancy, dyspareunia, post-coital bleeding and penile bleeding in their partners. Examination revealed a hard sharp object embedded within the cervix uteri at the cervical os. Tissue histology confirmed bone fragments.
