wnmun s. mourn, or NEW ronx, N. Y. carmmax. sac]: mwomi surronr.

Application fled February which shall be readily handled, simple in construction and such as may without injury.

Other and ancillary objects of the invention will appear hereinafter. v I

In the accompanying drawings, which i1-' lustrate the invention,

Fig. 1 is an axial section of a device embodying the invention,

. Fig. 2 is a top plan view of the same, Fig. 3 is a side elevation, partly broken be made use of away to show a section, of a modified form 1 'these sections puckering to form a pleat of the device, v I

Fig. 4 is a top plan view of the device shown in Fig. 3, showing the cup partially ex anded, and

,ig. 5 is a similar view of the cup of Figs. 3 and 4 showing the cup in contracted position. v

Referring to the drawings, and first to Figs. 1 and 2, the article thereinshown is formed of molded rubber of suitable flexi-' bility, elasticity and stabilit and comprises a cup 1 in communication, ymeans of an opening 2 with a disk-shaped pocket or re. ceptacle 3 having substantially flat sides and extending laterally to a considerable distance outside the extreme lateral edges of the cup.

' Tothe other flat side oithe receptacle is secured a similar cup 4. 1

' The two cups and pocket are in axial alignment.

The device is to be inserted in the vaginal passage with the disk-like pocket transverse thereto. The cup 1 receives the end of the womb so that the menstrual discharge is directed into the ocket 3. The flat pocket, extending a consi erable distance outside the cups, engages with the walls of the vaginal passage in a substantially fluid tight manner so'that the cup 1. is centered and any excretion which may be outside the cup is caught.

18, 1925. Serial 11:0. 8,398.

The centering of the cup adjusts into proper position the end ofthe uterus if it has become dis laced to one side, and a support for the wom is formed which is especially efiicacious in cases of falling of the womb. This support may be afforded by engagemefit of the. disk pocket with the vaginal wa s. support and also, with or without such support, prevents displacement of the device byv relation to the vaginal walls.

To render either or both of the cups more flexible, so as to be expanded and contracted to adjust the device to the parts as required by the circumstances of the individual case, with greater ease, there may be formed in the cup radial sections 5 of less thickness thanthe remainder of the wall of the cup,

undue tilting of the disk and cup 1, with when the cup is in contracted condition (see Figs. 3 and 5), and this. pleat spreading on enlargement or expansion of the mouth of the cup (see Fig. 4).

Wh1le the invention has been illustrated in what-are considered its best applications, it may have other embodiments without departin from its spirit and is not therefore limite to the structures shown in the drawings.

What I claim is:

1. A device of the character described having two cups, and a disk-like pocket in axial alignment, one of said cups being in communication with the interior of said pocket and'the other being shut off .from

communication therewith.

the other cup being shut off from such com-' munication, said pocket extending laterally beyond the extreme lateral edges of said cu s. I i

fn testimony whereof I have signed this specification this 14th day of 'Febrliijig 1925. WILLIAM S. PELO ET.
