What will happen if I used a saline laxative enema in my vagina instead of anus by mistake?

In brief: A douche instead

It will simply flush the contents of your vagina out if it just contains a hypertonic saline solution although it might cause very mild irritation.
Overall, it should be very innocuous.

In brief: Irritation

sometimes you might find it to irritate the lining.
However, as a whole, a one time incident should not produce significant issues

In brief: No prob

Hi. Assuming the nozzle hadn't been in your anus since it was last washed, no problem. I have to say, the holes are pretty different, and I think if you're confusing them you need to pay closer attention.
Anatomy lesson in the diagram. Good luck!

In brief: No harm

No harm done. The saline comes out immediately.
Basically you gave yourself an unexpected douche.
