Simone Giertz tries to crush various things in an artificial uterus she made

In this particular video, Giertz wanted to see the intensity of menstrual cramps by crushing various objects in a pneumatic uterus inflated to the typical pressure found in a uterus when it is cramping (2.3 pounds per square inch). A cramp will not pop a balloon but it will squeeze toothpaste out of a tube.
