We may not welcome all our time with open arms, but at least we have a choice how to handle it. What works for one person may not be ideal for another. For example, for Kristen Bell menstrual cups are no longer the first choice.
During her appearance at Busy Philipp's new show, Busy Tonight Bell stated that she can be performed after a particularly stressful experience with a menstrual cup. No, we do not mean spilling ̵
"I tried the DivaCup but I had a very strange experience with it," Bell said to Philipps on the show.
"A menstrual cup is difficult and requires a lot of trial and error, and you have to be ready …" began Philipps.
"To find out," Bell finished. "To find out, really."
Bell went on to describe a time when her DivaCup was stuck. "I went to grab it, and there was something that was sucked to the wrong part of me," she said, explaining the very strange feeling that something was pulling on her heart, causing her to faint in the bathroom has been.
I fainted and came to me and I still did not get it out, so I had to remember how: "Okay, you need to uncouple, you have to grab hard, you have to get strong & # 39; she said. "I tore it out, but afterwards I was like," Maybe I should take a break. Maybe it's not my job. "
It's not uncommon for people to get stuck in things like menstrual cups, but most of us do not. When that happens, it does not faint.
Have something like a tampon, a vaginal ring, or a menstrual cup Unfortunately, this is a common problem, Dr. Lauren Streicher, a professor of clinical obstetrics and gynecology at the School of Medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg, tells SELF.
We obviously do not know exactly what happened in Bell's case, but she Fainting over a nerve problem such as vasovagal syncope, Mayo Clinic states that this is a condition in which your vagus nerve overreacts to certain triggers, such as blood or "extreme emotional suffering," resulting in leads to a sudden fall in blood pressure leading to fainting. [19659015Interestinglythevagusnerveinthebodyand goes right along the cervix Dr. Streicher. For example, some people find that "cervical manipulation" triggers a vasovagal reaction as in the Pap test. So, if a menstrual cup inside you is so strong that it puts pressure on the cervix, it may cause a reaction. "It's not an ordinary thing, but it's not weird," says Dr. Streicher.
If you are in a similar situation, Dr. Strive to do your best to stay calm. Then try to squat and tighten when you pull the cup (or other item). That way you have the gravity and extra pressure on your side. If you can, try fingering two, not just one, which may allow you to grasp what's in you. Or if you have a partner or friend and are familiar with it, you can ask him for help.
"But the main thing is to stay calm and remember that nothing terrible will happen," she says. And you know, if you fail otherwise, your ob / gyn will be happy to help.
And if the menstrual cups are really not for you, you have many options, such as tampons, tampons, insoles, and menstrual discs. Or you can even try one of Bell's (and Philipp's) favorites: Thinx Underwear .
