The stem must be from one-quarter to one-half an inch less in length than the depth of the uterine cavity, otherwise it will touch the-fundus and injure the organ, but it must also reach at least three-quarters of an inch above the internal os, else it will not be effective in straightening out the uterus. The thickness of the cylindrical or conical stem should vary according to the width of the internal os; too slender stems readily slip out, while if they are too thick it is difficult to insert them and they ordinarily cause sharp pain. The stem may be either solid or hollow; in any event the extremity within the uterus must be well rounded, and the entire surface must be smooth and carefully polished.

At the external, non-uterine extremity of the stem there is a concavo-convex, round, slender cup, a thick knob or a ball, which answers the purpose of steadying the stem. The diameter of this cup is at least three-quarters of an inch, ordinarily a trifle more, the greater indeed the wider the external os and the more relaxed the tissue of the uterus.
