- Two women both went into “shock” after doing the so-called “Menstrual Extraction.”
- Recently it has gained popularity as a method to end periods early.
- A nurse urged women to stop using a vacuum cleaner for extraction purposes.
If you’re a woman then you know how it feels when it comes to “that time of the month” – it can be extremely annoying and sometimes very painful to deal with. Now, there’s plenty of methods out there to get you through a smooth cycle.
But of all the ways to cope with period pains and discomfort, vacuuming your lady part is perhaps one of the worst things you could do. A nurse in Seattle claims two young women were hospitalized after trying to use a vacuum hose to end their periods early.
The nurse took to Twitter to share that two patients, aged 19 and 23, had attempted to speed up their period using a vacuum cleaner. Yes, you read that right. A vacuum cleaner.
“Ladies… Please stop using your vacuum hose to end your period early. You’re gonna wind up sucking out a lot more than blood! There were 2 cases of this so far this week and both women had to be admitted. Just… STOP!
“I don’t know if it was Eureka, Dyson, Hoover or some Walmart brand, but yes an actual vacuum cleaner.”
It’s not clear why some women would attempt this in the first place, although several people pointed out that this sounded like a home attempt at “menstrual extraction.” The DIY method was first described in the 70s as a way to perform an abortion at home.
The nurse followed up with a tweet about the dangers of using a vacuum to suck out blood.
She noted that periods have steady flows that women’s bodies could tolerate. Using a vacuum to suck all the blood, which increases the flow over 1,000 times, so it can send the body into a shock.
Periods can be extremely painful. Many women suffer severe dysmenorrhea (menstruation pain) and menorrhagia (heavy blood flow), which leads them wanting to end it as soon as possible.
However, using a vacuum cleaner to end all the hassles early is definitely not worth the risk.
