Proof that Menstrual Cups are Safe

Hi!

I asked my parents if I could have a menstrual cup and they were really against it. They think it won't be safe.

They told me I needed to show them proof from medical journals, or other sources that menstrual cups are safe.

So do you guys know any articles, journals, etc. about menstrual cup safety?

Sidenote: I'm 17, so would you guys recommend the small Lunette or the small Mooncup?

EDIT:
  • My dad is concerned because I might have a blood clotting problem (blood clotting too easily) because he does, so he's extra cautious
  • He doesn't believe the "propaganda" of the websites and doesn't care if the FDA approved it.
  • He doesn't care if they're better than tampons because "tampons are out of question anyway"
*sigh*
