Blood & Plants?


I was just really curious about something the past few days, as my period should be here any day now.  Well, this doesn't have to do 100% with cups per se, but I guess it could be kind of cup related.  I have a small indoor palm tree from Ikea and I've been thinking about using my menstrual blood and dumping it in with the soil.  Is this okay for my plant and do I have to dilute the blood before I feed the palm?  Also, I was wondering how bad the smell is, because the plant sits in my kitchen, and I'm sure my mom and brother would not appreciate the smell of blood radiating in the kitchen.  If it does smell, does diluting help?   OH!  And  I have a cat (neutered) and he is sometimes inside depending on the weather.  I'm afraid he'll become fascinated with the palm tree.  He's never been into the plant before, so I dout he'll start now, but I just don't want to ttake any chances.  Any tips to keep pets away?  I heard something about cayenne pepper...does cayenne pepper sauce work?  I never really heard of the idea of fertilizing plants with blood until after I heard about cups.  (I think a few ladies here do it, but the tag on the side doesn't like me right now)  I was fascinated by the idea and am all for giving it a try, so if someone can tell me how to go about this, I'd greatly appreciate it.  Thanks and have an awesome day!!

A Chinese Mini Angel cup ?

Hello to everyone :-))

You may have already discussed about this..
Yesterday, I was looking for more information about the Indian Shecup, and found this shopsite on which we can see a side of the Shecup =
http://www.alibaba.com/product-tp/109395322/SHECUP_A_REVOLUTION_IN_SANITARY_CARE_.html

From this site, we access to another one (by clicking on the "Menstrual Cups (3)" sections above), the aliexpress one, on which another (unknown?) cup is presented.
Or even from this url =
http://www.alibaba.com/trade/search/3i1p5tyfchms/Menstrual_Cup.html

We see all the cups they sell.. many LadyCups. And at the bottom of the page, there are some cups categorized as "Moon cup" or "Lady Cup" or "Femme Cup" .. lol..
But to me, each time, they simply are the two sizes of another, a new cup.


Finally,on the following page, we see photos with these small and large cups.. There are clear and pink ones.
And we can read a brand, "Mini Angel" =
http://www.aliexpress.com/product-gs/245205783-Menstrual-Cup-Moon-cup-Reusable-Menstrual-Cup-Moon-Cup-wholesalers.html

It is written : "Place of Origin: Guangdong China (Mainland)".

And also : "made of the highest quality German medical silicone, used exclusively in the medical and food industry - from silicone aproved by the FDA
LadyCup comes in two sizes. Be careful to choose a suitable size according to the following information:

1. S(mall) - suitable for women who have not given birth to a child or women up to the age of 25 years
2. L(arge) - suitable for women who have given birth to a child or who are over the age of 25 years"
