Influencer Bianca Ingrosso claimed this method shortens the time of a woman’s period, but admitted that she has never tried it out herself.
Swedish celebrity Bianca Ingrosso has raised eyebrows with a recent YouTube video, in which she tips her followers to drink their own period blood.
According to Ingrosso, who has over 1 million followers on on Instagram and another 340,000 on YouTube, this allegedly shortens the time of a woman’s period. At the same time, the 25-year-old admitted that she is yet to try out this trick herself.
In her recent video dedicated to alleviating painful periods, Ingrosso comes up with a plethora of tips, starting from “Tantra stuff”, avoiding eating sugar, drinking coffee, smoking, drinking alcohol, or exercising. Then, however, Ingrosso proceeds to more radical solutions.
“Then there is this latest last tip and that is to drink your own period blood. Because it should make periods go over faster as you get in all the vitamins you otherwise lose, by drinking blood. I haven’t tested this yet, but I know that a lot of people do it, and then their period only lasts six hours”, Ingrosso claimed.
While Ingrosso has no problem talking about very intimate topics, such as sex, relationships, and men, something her numerous followers most often appreciate, the recent piece of advice made many see red.
In the comments field, many reacted with disgust and surprise. Some pointed out that this was “the most stupid thing to say” and even warned against this practice as meaningless and borderline dangerous.
Ingrosso’s advice didn’t go unnoticed on social media.
“Oh yeah, poor bloody world. Who decides who becomes an influencer? Poor kids”, a user tweeted, calling Ingrosso “Ullared Kardashian”. Ullared is the village that hosts Sweden’s and Scandinavia’s largest store and its name is synonymous with low prices.
