menstrual sponge

(redirected from Sea pearl)

menstrual sponge

A semi-disposable natural sponge placed in the vagina during menses, used by some women instead of manufactured pads, tampons or menstrual cups.
 
This particular object is not recommended by mainstream gynaecologists, in large part because it is virtually impossible to sterilise sponges.
