The Innovative Period Shell That Could Change The Way Women Menstruate Around The World

Post by Guest on Sun May 29, 2016 9:54 am

Liita Iyaloo Cairney is on a mission to change the face of periods, forever. Cairney, 32, from Edinburgh has created a reusable menstrual device which is suitable for women all over the world, regardless of their economic background. The product is made up of two parts: a shell which fits around the pubic bone of women and girls, and a reusable liner which sits inside the shell and can be washed or disposed of - depending on what you can afford.  The PHD student has also designed a website to educate young girls about their anatomy and reproductive cycle, but she’s not stopping there. “My dream is to actually have a walk-in shop where there is a wide range of menstrual products to suit whatever activity you are doing as a woman or a girl - whether you’re going hiking, running or whatever,” she told The Huffington Post UK.

“I think it’s silly that that doesn’t exist already.

This isn't a new thing. They've been around for ages. It sounds pretty disgusting to me.
