Women's personal hygiene is an important issue across the world and several products for women during menstruation are available in the market. Even as the subject has been discussed for a while, there are still some outrageous ideas arising out of misunderstanding women’s health.

A chiropractor named Dr Daniel Dopps has come up with a product based on his understanding of the vagina as a “self-cleaning shower drain”. The Mensez Adhesive Vaginal Lipstick is a lot like it sounds, and women might not find it very appealing.

A Facebook post mentions that it’s like a lipstick where your lips are stuck together and you only have to wet lips from inside to open them. The product is supposed to be applied on the inner labia so that they are stuck together and hold menstrual fluid back till a woman urinates.

The idea meant to be an alternative for tampons received harsh criticism on social media, but the doctor had an even more outrageous response after being slammed.

Dopps said that women should come up with alternatives in the first place but they don’t since they are mostly distracted by periods and that makes them less productive.
