The Keeper®, a Menstrual Collection Device, as a Potential Cause of Endometriosis and Adenomyosis

Spechler, Stacey; Nieman, Lynnette K.; Premkumar, Ahalya; Stratton, Pamela

We describe the case of a woman with a prior tubal ligation who after four years of regular use of the Keeper, a menstrual collecting device, developed endometriosis and adenomyosis.
