'Glue for labia'

(190 Posts)

A US chiropractor has 'developed' a 'glue' that makes your labia stick together when you are having a period, to hold back the menstrual blood until you next pee.

Apparently, this is hygienic and will help women from becoming distracted by their monthly menstrual cycle.

Discuss.

'Discuss'? Really?

Grindelwaldswand Wed 22-Feb-17 00:47:12

I'll stick to my period pants thanks confused I can't see any woman finding that appealing

It may have been developed by someone who is also qualified as a chiropractor? It certainly has nothing to chiropractic (which is mainly about helping the body work at its very best via manual adjustments)...Very odd indeed.

The guy who claims to have invented this is a deeply unpleasant misogynist. Have a read of this article about this man and this supposed product:

Who the fuck would want to start poking about with glue down there?! Madness!

Totally stupid! You would have to spend ages sitting on the toilet waiting for all the gloopy period blood to come out (perhaps 3 hours worth collected in there) and the queues for women's toilets are bad enough as it is! And then you would still need a pad or a panty liner at the very least because you would be all messy on your labia after that. Unless you took a pack of wet wipes in the cubicle with you. But then where would you dispose of all the wet wipes? And if you're going to faff around doing all that you may as well just use a tampon/pad!

Id glue his mouth shut to stop anymore bullshit coming out of it before I glued my fanjo shut!

Laughing at the 'discuss.' order - so ignorant and rude. Gets on my nerves when people do that on here.

Idiotic idea but I suppose I would say that, given 25% of the time my brain apparently barely functions.

Cornflake15 Wed 22-Feb-17 01:36:51

Can you imagine if when using this "glue", you laughed or sneezed and some pee leaked out, dissolved the glue and all the blood started to flow out...

EBearhug Wed 22-Feb-17 01:50:25

Wouldn't it be uncomfortable, having your bits stuck together? How would it hold out against striding along purposefully, or a stretchy yoga session? What about swimming pool water?

Wouldn't hair get in the way and act as capilliaries to let blood pass through the glue barrier? Or does this only work with a Brazilian, so you get a complete seal?

What about a heavy, clotty, perimenopausal, floody period? I'm prepared to be impressed if it can withstand that, but I'm not expecting it to be able to.

What is it actually made of? Some women have enough issues if they make the error of using scented sanpro (see a few million previous threads) - it's a very sensitive area, and I wouldn't want to risk applying potential allergens without knowing it had been through extensive testing.

And yes, my period has sometimes distracted me at work, but I'm allowed to take loo breaks, so it's not a big deal, and doesn't have much effect on my productivity. Far less than pissing about on eBay or Facebook or just chatting in the kitchen area, which is something men do too. There are many, many ways to be unproductive - I certainly wouldn't rely on my period for that. I want work-avoidance methods that I can use every day I'm at work.

I have said in the past that periods would be more convenient if we could control them like other bodily functions. I don't think glue is the way forward, though.

PenguinVox Wed 22-Feb-17 01:50:29

Or what if we used the "lipstick" on our mouth by accident?! Very possible since our brains get so distracted when we are menstruating! We would have to get someone to wee on our face so that we could speak again! shock

I hate the arrogance of ' discuss'
like some 1980s exam question

That is seriously the most bonkers idea I have ever heard!!?!

ooohsopink Wed 22-Feb-17 06:31:17

I couldn't add a smiley to the OP as was posting from a phone with a messed up screen. Apologies - my 'discuss' was meant to be more of a 'what do you think' - sorry to offend.

I couldn't believe what I was reading when I saw the article!

How would your wee come out? I can't be the only one thinking that?

I find my mooncup more effective at holding my period back and wouldn't it start to smell and clot? I think you'd end up with a nasty infection.

Was this quack a bloke by any chance? This seems about right https://drjengunter.wordpress.com/2017/02/20/gluing-your-labia-shut-during-your-period-is-a-bad-idea/.

BTW, OP, you can add a smiley to a post from anything by just typing the word smile (grin, sad, angry...there are others too numerous to mention) inside square brackets - [ smile ] without the spaces. smile

HelenDenver Wed 22-Feb-17 07:34:17

I've birthed two large babies; I need the loo more often than I need to change pad!

ooohsopink Wed 22-Feb-17 07:35:27

Thanks Errol - that's helpful on the smileys.

I think the article is in several places - I saw a comment on FB about it and had to google the product - bit of a 'WTAF' moment hmm

LiviaDrusillaAugusta Wed 22-Feb-17 08:43:55

I don't think all the smileys in the world will help people not get arsey about the word 'Discuss' smile

Soubriquet Wed 22-Feb-17 08:48:02

Why am i not surprised a man has invented this

Fuckwit
