1970s Menstrual Cup

I've looked at www.mum.org and no, they don't make any mention of it but...

I could SWEAR I remember seeing ads for a menstrual cup that was kinda terra cotta in color and shaped kinda like a bucket with thin near vertical sides and a flat-ish (or was it slightly V-shaped?) bottom.  I think it had a ring at the base.  Did it also have a string through that ring?

The names "Assurance" and "Ensure" keep flitting through my long term memory -- but I'm pretty sure they're both wrong.

It was definitely NOT the Keeper, which is circa 1987.  This was way before that.  And it was after the demise of the Tassette/Tassaway.

(Is anyone else old enough?)  Does anyone else remember or know what I might be talking about?

This has been driving me crazy.  Please tell me I'm not the only one who remembers it.  Ask your mothers.  What the heck was it???

Despite my lousy artwork, that's similar to how it appeared in the ads.  It was hand drawn, not a photograph.  There was text above and below.  And the colors are pretty close too.
