A nurse has claimed that two young women were hospitalized this week after trying to use a vacuum hose to end their periods early.
She said the women went into ‘shock’ after the DIY method triggered a rush of blood, rather than the stop they had hoped for.
“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. They used the suction hose to suck out their period hoping to end them early. They both sent themselves into shock instead.”, she tweeted.
The nurse who posted the tweet, added: ‘I don’t know if it was Eureka, Dyson, Hoover or some Walmart brand, but yes… An actual vacuum cleaner.’
She added: ‘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.’
