UPDATE: Women Will Soon Have Access To More Cost-Effective, Environmentally Friendly Alternative To Feminine Hygiene Products Such As Sanitary Napkins And Tampons

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 29, 2012 /PR Newswire/ -- FemCap, Inc. announces The FemmyCycle®, a novel product granted clearance by The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on November 16, 2012. An eco-friendly alternative to sanitary napkins and tampons, The FemmyCycle® enhances the quality of women's lives by helping them better manage their menstrual periods.

FemmyCycle® creator Dr Alfred Shihata is familiar with developing innovative feminine products. His FDA-approved FemCap® is one of the few hormone-free, woman-controlled contraceptive methods available.

"When I developed The FemCap®, my goal was to provide women with a safe and effective hormone-free birth control device. The motivation behind The FemmyCycle® was much the same—to provide a safer, more convenient alternative to pads and tampons at a lower economic and environmental cost," Dr. Shihata said.

The FemmyCycle's® unique, non-spill-design collects and holds menstrual flow for up to 12 hours. Collecting menstrual flow rather than absorbing it eliminates the risk of toxic shock syndrome associated with tampons. Additionally, women using the device reported an absence of odor and leaks as the device keeps menstrual fluid away from vaginal walls and vulva and unexposed to air.

The FemmyCycle® is safe for up to 12 hours of use and can be worn during exercise and other daily activities, so it is ideal for athletes and working women. It is a reusable device made of soft, medical grade silicone and lasts for a period of a year or more, making it an environmentally friendly alternative to tampons and pads. The FemmyCycle® is cost-effective at $39.95 per twin pack and will be available online and in stores on January 14, 2013.

FemCap, Inc. is a Del Mar, California-based company founded by Dr Alfred Shihata, developer of the FDA-approved FemCap® contraceptive device and the FemmyCycle® menstrual collection cup. www.femcap.com
