Doctors blast TikTok trend that sees women REMOVE their own contraceptive coils - and warn you could 'bring your uterus down with it'. They should be inserted and removed by a medical professional, but women from around the world who are struggling to book appointments with their doctor or gynaecologist are resorting to doing it themselves and posting 'IUD removal' videos online. Others have reported being refused removal unless they agree to start on another form of contraception, and have therefore taken matters into their own hands.

It converts writing into speech, which can then be played over videos uploaded to the app, often for comedic effect. Bev Standing recorded about 10,000 sentences of audio for the state-backed Chinese Institute of Acoustics research body to use in translations, in 2018. The legal action claims her voice can now be heard in viral videos featuring “foul and offensive language”, causing her reputation “irreparable harm”.

She added she was wearing a face mask, they were six feet apart and there was plexiglass in the store.

In the second part of her video, she explained how the pandemic has particularly affected deaf people and described how she was at her “breaking point.”

“No deaf person should have to go through this,” Shannon said. “I’ve been discriminated [against] this entire pandemic.”

The BBC reported more than one in three deaf people have reported struggling with their mental health because of the pandemic, according to a recent report, according to the deafness charity SignHealth.

The pandemic has also resulted in cases of deaf people being discriminated against too.

Now, Shannon wants an apology from the manager who refused her service.

“I want an apology,” she cries. “What that manager did was wrong.”

Since posting her emotional video, Shannon has received nearly 3m views in total between the two TikToks, with thousands of comments supporting her.
