Can You Give A Cat Olive Oil For Hairballs?
Yes, You Can Get a Cat Hairball Stuck in Your Vagina
XO Jane's daily "It Happened to Me" column is required reading for those of us trying to lead our Best Life. It's basically the lady version of thePenthouseletter, but a million times better because they talk about stuff like being nice to fat people at yoga and short-hair-shaming (it's a thing!). Anyway, it's the greatest.
Yesterday, the confession was all about a woman who got a hairball in her vagina. I'm just gonna continue typing as if that sentence didn't make your brain explode.
You see, Michelle Barrow has two cats and because they're cats, sometimes they shed. One day, Barrow had a dull ache in her lower abdomen. Unable to figure out what was going on, she went to an ob-gyn. That's when they pulled a wad of cat hair out of her vagina. At the time, her doctor thought it was a tampon, but no.
From XO Jane:
Thankfully the doctor has steady hands because within a few seconds she says she's done it. The nurse claps and then, looking at the specimen, recoils disgustedly. The doctor leans back and asks, "So do you wanna see the tampon?" There is absolutely nothing I love more than getting gross things out of my body so duuuuh! With her tweezers she holds up a glob about 2 inches long that looks distinctly furry and happens to be the exact same color as Donut. I'm speechless. The doctor's waiting for me to say something but the only thought running through my head is:"HOLY SHIT THAT IS CAT HAIR THERE HAS BEEN A BALL OF CAT HAIR INSIDE ME FOR A MONTH THAT IS CAT HAIR AND IT WAS IN MY VAGINA A HAIRBALL HAS BEEN CAUSING MY DISCOMFORT HOLY SHIT AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"
Yeah, pretty sure I'd have a similar reaction.
What Barrow thinks happened was: (1) Her cats shed all over her sheets on the regular, (2) She and her fiancé have sex in the sheets filled with cat hair on the regular, and (3) their vigorous love-making pushed a bunch of cat hair into her vagina. Voilà: It happened to her!
In an interview with The Cut, Barrow countered the people who thought that maybe it was just a hairy tampon in her vagina:
I know it wasn't a tampon because: (1) I know for a fact that I removed both of them, and (2) It was big enough that it would have been at least half a tampon, which I would've noticed when I removed it.
It's definitely possible that a few fibers got stuck and that's what started everything but I am very confident that there was also cat hair in the mix.
Now, Barrow doesn't allow the cats on her sheets and all is well with her vagina.
Interestingly enough, she isn't the first person to have gotten a vagina hairball.
