Menstrual Cups

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

  1. Didn’t The Keeper people draft a design almost identical to this, though it never went into production? Interesting, but I’d be worried about how air/blood-tight that stopper’s seal is. And 40mm seems awfully narrow in diameter for the Large. For someone like me with a really erratic schedule, limited bathroom access (due to roommates/running around to different locations all day) and a high cervix that means I basically can’t remove my cup without going into a full sumo squat, which is impossible in most public bathrooms…this might work.

  2. Yes they did. I too would worry about a catastrophic leak if the stopper fails….. But the concept is interesting.

    Silicone is flexible, so I imagine if it is designed well, you can jam the stopper in and get a good seal, while still being able to remove it later without too much hassle… but if the stopper isn’t a tight fit, then it could leak.
