Title (EN) FEMININE HYGIENE DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF D'HYGIENE FEMININE
Abstract:
(EN) A vaginal discharge collector (10) including a body (14) for providing a space (19) for the collection of vaginal discharge and having an opening for the passage of vaginal discharge into the collection space, and a rim (11) for providing holding force sufficient for holding the collector in position during use, the rim being affixed to the body proximate its top. The body and the rim are flexible so that the body may be rolled up on the rim between a rolled-up position and a rolled-down position. The body may include a reservoir (12) for providing a reservoir space having a constant size. In another aspect of the invention, the collector includes a closure structure (33) for inhibiting the exit of vaginal discharge from the space. In another aspect of the invention, the collector provides time-released and/or non-time-released dosages of substances such as medication for both menstruating and non-menstruating females.
(FR) Collecteur d'écoulement vaginal (10) comprenant un corps (14) destiné à ménager un espace (19) de collecte d'écoulement vaginal, doté d'une ouverture permettant le passage d'un écoulement vaginal jusque dans l'espace de collecte, ainsi que d'un bord (11) destiné à exercer une force de maintien suffisante pour maintenir ledit collecteur en position lors de l'utilisation, ledit bord étant fixé audit corps à proximité de sa partie supérieure. Ledit corps et ledit bord sont souples de manière que ledit corps peut être enroulé sur ledit bord, entre des positions enroulée et déroulée. Ledit corps peut comprendre un réservoir (12) destiné à ménager un espace de contenance dont la taille est constante. Selon un autre mode de réalisation de l'invention, ledit collecteur comprend une structure de fermeture (33) afin d'empêcher la sortie de l'écoulement vaginal de l'espace. Dans un autre mode de réalisation de l'invention, le collecteur administre des doses de substances à retardement et/ou sans retardement, telles que des médicaments, à la fois à des femmes réglées et à des femmes non réglées.
