Re: Recent research on menstrual cups needed

Excellent, Penny. Thanks. I'll take a look and see how to incorporate new data. Do you know of others doing research on the use of cups? I'd like to get as much information in front of me as possible before I tackle a revision.

To all, I welcome your comments on the article itself found here. What is missing? Anything inaccurate? Incomplete?

Recent research on menstrual cups needed

Anyone familiar with published research on Menstrual cups? Please take a look at the Wikipedia article and make suggestions for what studies should be cited to make sure we are offering the most current information. Here's the link to the Wikipedia article: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menstrual_cup

As is, the article cites studies done in 1962 and 1995, as well as 2011 and 2015. Can we simply delete the older studies? Or are they still relevant?
(Our deadline for improving this article is 18 November, in time for the surge of interest in WASH topics on World Toilet Day.)
