A friend of mine from Germany sent me a Diva cup and I find it wonderful. I would like to introduce it to other friends here in India. It is too difficult to source it from outside the country. And so I would like to know whether there are any outlets in India that sell any brand of the menstrual cup. Also I would like to know its price. Hope someone cn help me.

I know this is no help at all, but it is about time they had a cup company over there as I'm always seeing women there asking about cups. I know that there is a menstrual activist movement over there and I know that tampons and pads over there are produced to a lower standard than, say, in the UK or US. I think someones missing a trick.

It sounds like you have a good business opportunity to become a distributor in India.

Here is a size chart that also includes links to all the corporate web sites:

Many of the companies have links for dealer inquiries.

What about that "Alicia Cup"?? I thought that was made by an Australian woman, living in India. Not sure whats going on with that, but you can check out the website:

I've seen a website that had a place where you could click on a country and it would tell you the best place to get a cup from. I thought it was a wikipedia based page but I can't seem to find it now. Does anyone else remember seeing it?

Yes! That's it!

Hooray! You were so specific I figured that's what it was.

If I had the time I'd become a distributor. God knows I'm trying hard enough to create a market, by sheer power of word-of-mouth and blogging :D.
Um, I'm Indian in case you missed it ;).

The worst thing is that international couriers/registered posts are effing expensive, and lots of packages get lost in the mail,so we have a harder time ordering from abroad than others whose countries don't stock cups.

I have good friends (Americans) who live in India. I actually lived with them there for three months in 2007. Anyways, I'm hoping to go back for a visit within the next year or so, and if I do I'd be willing to bring cups over there and then mail them domestically. Or, my friends might even be willing to pick up some cups for you when they're in the States and then mail them when they're in India. Is that an option you might be interested in?

On a similar note, I'm leaving for India on 5 May, and I'd also be willing to bring cups and mail them domestically (or drop them in person, if I'm going to be in the right area. It's always nice to meet cup users!).
