Doctors are warning women against “vaginal scraping” in an attempt to rid themselves of any “remnants” of their ex.
Celebrity Mel B, after her split with her ex husband, told The Guardian, “They scraped the inside of my vagina and put new tissue in. It’s almost like a rape victim would do – essentially, you want to scrub yourself clean.”
However gynecologists warn that these types of procedures could increase one’s risk of infection.
In July the FDA issued a warning against vaginal rejuvenation.
Consumers undergo a curette scraping or laser procedure that destroys vaginal tissue prompting regrowth. However this could leave the patient with pain, itching, burning, increased risk of infection and scarring.
The tightening of the tissue consumers are seeking are actually a result of scarring from the laser or scraping treatment, a risk most doctors would not recommend one takes.
