DIY Menstrual Cup Project

http://www.orangenarwhals.com/2015/11/diy-menstrual-cups-hack4fem

This seems to have been made as more of a project to see if it was possible, rather than with the intention to actually make a usable cup, but this website has an interesting article on the process of making a DIY cup!

It is worth mentioning that silicone intended for prolonged skin contact (especially used internally), should be tested for bio-compatibility to make sure it is safe, and that just because something is food-safe doesn’t mean it is safe for internal use….. so I REALLY STRONGLY recommend you DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME (not for actual use purposes anyway).  But the concept is interesting indeed!

Stopper Stem Cup

unnamed_stopper

Found on Alibaba (a site that sells wholesale, so I don’t know if they are available anywhere at retail prices/amounts) – this is a cup (with the same lines around the top as the Blossom/Dutchess etc. cups have) with a hollow tube stem that has an attached stopper on the end.  This would allow you to empty the cup while wearing it.

Sizes are listed as being Small: 35mm diameter, 7omm long, Large 40mm diameter, 80mm long
