.Ai-communicating Wthwthe for fsadiebl i .'-i and with the passageways of said pipes; and diagonally extending through the outer walls of said pipes are the ornices B communicating with the passageways thereof.
Mounted upon the inner portion of said base is the casing I2, having the annular chamber IEa communicating with the passageways fia, la, 8a and 9a, and having partitioned from said chamber and centrally extending therethrough, the tunnel i217. Preferably for connecting and securing the said casing to the said base, I construct the inner end of said base with the annular recess I5 and shoulder I6, within which is seated the annular inwardly projecting rim Il of the said casing, an O-ring i8 being installed and compressed within the annular groove I9 in said inner end providing sealing means for said connection. Leading into the side of said casing and integral therewith is the inlet member 2B, having the enlarged tip 2l, to which may be attached the end of the elastic hose I3 or other conduit leading from a Water faucet or other source of liquid supply.
Also, the inner end of said base 5 is constructed with an outlet member, through which continues and extends the central passageway 22 of said base, and the end of Which member is shaped to form the enlarged spout 23, to which is attached the end of the elastic hose I4 or other conduit leading to the place of discharge. As shown, the said outlet member is preferably formed with the annular recess 2d and shoulder f5, an O- ring I8 compressed within the annular groove 28 providing sealing means for this connection.
Preferably installed within the chamber I2a and shaped to flt and to conform to the Walls thereof is the bag 2t of permeable fabric or other porous material, containing loosely packed antiseptic or contraceptive crystals, grains or substances of like character 33, and allowing the ready passage therethrough of Water or other fluids coming from the inlet conduit I3.
In operating my improved device, the inlet conduit I3 is first connected with a water faucet or other source of fluid supply, and the outlet conduit is connected with the toilet seat, cham-- ber vessel or other means of refuse disposal, then upon the nozzle pipes being inserted within the vaginal tract and the shield adjusted, the water or iiuid supply is turned on, whereupon by reason of the quadrilateral arrangement of the said pipes and the diagonal arrangement of the orifices A and B, the cleansing fluid coming from the conduit I3 through the contents 3d of the bag 29 is sprayed or impacted upon all of the parts of the said tract, and thereupon the fluid so used is discharged out of the syringe through the conduit I4. Thus there is a constant flow of fresh cleansing fluid into said tract, and discharge of used iluid therefrom, the continuance of which results in the thorough cleansing of all parts thereof.
Preferably the nozzle pipes 6, 7, 8 and 9 are of plastic material, so as to permit the warming and bending thereof to conform to the shape of the vaginal tract. Also, the shield I I is of preferably vplastic material and self Aadjusting in character so as to make close contact with the outside parts of the body adjacent to the vaginal tract and to prevent escape of the fluid when passing into or out of said tract whatever may be the position of the user of the syringe while it is being employed to cleanse said tract.
My invention may be embodied in other specific forms without departing from the spirit or essential characteristics thereof. The present emsageways and an outlet passageway therethrough,
an elongated nozzle formed of spaced perforated pipes each seated in one of said inlet passageways of said base, and located to spray the folds of the vaginal tract when inserted therein; a casing having an annular chamber connected with said base and registering with the inlet passageways thereof; a quantity of antiseptic material installed in said chamber in the path of the incoming fluid and permitting its ready passage therethrough; means for feeding a continuous stream of said incoming fluid into said chamber, and means connected with said outlet passageway of said base for conducting away the used fluids after having been sprayed without being brought into contact with the incoming stream.
2. In a feminine hygienic vaginal syringe, the combination of a rounded base in the form of a truncated cone having inlet passageways and an outlet passageway therethrough, an elongated nozzle formed of equally spaced perforated pipes each seated in one of said inlet passageways of said base, and located to spray the folds of the vaginal tract when inserted therein; a casing having an annular chamber connected with said base and registering with the inlet passageways thereof; a porous bag of antiseptic material installed in said chamber in the path of the incoming fluid and permitting its ready passage therethrough; means for feeding a continuous stream of said incoming fluid into said chamber, and a conduit connected with said outlet passageway of said 1oase for conducting away the used fluids after havingbeen sprayed without being brought into contact with the incoming stream.
3. ln a feminine hygienic vaginal syringe, the combination of a rounded base having inlet passageways and an outlet passageway therethrough, an elongated nozzle formed of equally spaced perforated pipes each seated in one of said inlet passageways of said base, and located to spray the folds of the vaginal tract when inserted therein; a casing having an annular chamber connected with said base and registering with the inlet passageways thereof; a quantity of antiseptic material installed in said chamber in the path of the incoming fluid and permitting itsA ready passage therethrough; means for feeding a continuous stream of said incoming fluid into said.
chamber, means connected with said outlet passageway of said base for conducting away the used fluids after having been sprayed without being brought into contact with the incoming stream, and a self adjusting shield mounted upon said base and serving upon the insertion of said nozzle as aforesaid to guard the body and to prevent the leakage from said tract of the said fluids.
