What is the Menstrual Cup?
A menstrual cup is a bell-shaped feminine hygiene device that is inserted into the vagina during menstruation. Its purpose is to collect menstrual fluid until the cup is ready to be removed and prevents leakage onto clothes. A menstrual cup is more discreet than a Sanitary pad and can take up to twice the amount of fluid than a regular tampon without the danger of leakage. It is ideal for active women who enjoy travelling and sport. Cups can hold more blood than other methods. Many women use them as an eco-friendly alternative to tampons and depending on your flow, a cup can be held in place for up to 12 hours.
Medical Grade Silicone
Menstrual cups are usually made of flexible medical grade silicone and shaped like a bell with a stem. The stem is used for insertion and removal. The bell-shaped cup seals against the vaginal wall just below the cervix. Every 4–12 hours, the cup is removed, emptied, rinsed, and reinserted. After each period, the cup should be boiled for at least 5 minutes and stored for use the next month. This type of cup is designed to last up to 10 years.
When was the first menstrual cup discovered?
The first modern menstrual cups similar to the cups we know today, was invented in 1937 by the American actress Leona Chalmers. She patented a design of menstrual cup which was made from latex rubber. Her patent application states that the design won’t cause “uncomfortableness or consciousness of its presence.”
An early version of a menstrual cup was patented in 1932, by the midwifery group of McGlasson and Perkins. Leona Chalmers patented the first usable commercial cup in 1937. Other menstrual cups were patented in 1935, 1937, and 1950. Early menstrual cups were made of rubber.
In 1987, a latex rubber menstrual cup, known as “’the Keeper”, was manufactured in the United States. This proved to be the first commercially viable menstrual cup. The first silicone menstrual cup was the UK-manufactured Mooncup in 2001. Most menstrual cups are now manufactured from medical grade silicone because of its durability and hypoallergenic properties
