I never thought the day would come when I would have to write this blog…
A male chiropractor has designed a “glue’ that can be applied to the labia minora (the smaller lips of the vagina) during menstruation to get the ‘lips’ to stick together in a way that would be strong enough to keep the menstrual blood inside the vagina. Apparently, the glue will dissolve when urination happens, and then you can reapply more glue to close it up again.
There are SEVERAL problems with this:
Although this glue is not out yet and has not been tested, many doctors have already stated that this could end up being dangerous and do not recommend that women use this glue.
REMEMBER: don’t glue your vagina shut!
