Period pain is a serious business and should not be dismissed. Some women suffer from very heavy periods or a condition known as endometriosis which is so painful that some women can pass out or end up in the hospital from the condition. If a woman is complaining of period pain, imagine that you’ve just been kicked in the balls or had them squeezed tightly and that’s the sort of pain that she may be experiencing or much worse so please be respectful.
However, two women have taken things a bit too far by trying to vacuum their period blood. According to the source, in the recent past 2 women of ages 19 and 23 in Seattle had to be hospitalized because they attempted to suck out their period blood.
A nurse from the hospital took to Twitter to create consciousness about the subject, asking women not to do that.
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! 🛑🚑— Twinny 💜🖤 (@OdesseyT99) June 5, 2019
They used the suction hose to suck out their periods hoping to end them early. They both sent themselves into shock instead— Twinny 💜🖤 (@OdesseyT99) June 5, 2019
Your period has a steady flow of it's own that for all intents and purposes your body can tolerate. A vacuum increases that flow over a 1000 times which your body can't tolerate, therefore sending you into shock.— Twinny 💜🖤 (@OdesseyT99) June 6, 2019
Netizens were terrified about reading this. They had a lot of questions, How did they even come up with the idea? How does it even work? What if other stuff from inside your system gets sucked out? Oh, the fear! While some laughs on the women’s acts.

I just don’t understand why you’d think a vacuum hose will make your period end sooner.— Iridescent. (@cococures) June 5, 2019

Talking to the source, Dr. Adeeti Gupta, a gynecologist, said, “It’s a terribly unsafe idea. It can lead to severe vaginal injuries and infections. Menstrual bleeding is an active and natural process, it’s not just sitting in the uterus in a pool that can be sucked out. Please don’t even think about it.”
“Shock can happen either due to severe vaginal injuries leading to blood loss or just due to stimulation of the nerves in that region which can cause the body to go into a neurogenic shock”, she added.
We understand this is painful, but take care ladies!
