Uterocept Prototype

This coil was one of the many prototypes for the modern design. It was however never marketed, as initial tests failed to show any significant advantages compared to other models available at the time.


Contraceptive coil shaped like a bat. Has a hole for attachment of the applicator. The latter is light blue and bent slightly in a way similar to a crochet needle. The thread for removing it is also visible.
