Are they similar is  size and texture? I LOVE my small Lady Cup and am considering a Small Fleurcup as a 2nd cup since the meluna didnt work for me. Is there a specific reason why t hey dont ship to the US?

As far as I know they're not FDA approved at the moment, but there might be more to it. I'm curious, though, what about the MeLuna didn't work for you? I'm considering getting one and while every woman is different I want to get as many sides of this as possible before deciding.

The only cups that are FDA-approved are DivaCup, Keeper/Mooncup, and Lunette is in the process of becoming FDA-approved.

Fleurcup just isn't shipping anywhere outside the European Union, possibly because they are a new company (They may start shipping to other countries soon).

Oops... I was just saying what I remembered reading elsewhere. Thanks for the correction :)

MeLuna is fairly newer than fleurcup yet they are allowed to ship to the US.

The suction on it was killer. I tried the medium Meluna ring and the moment I got it in I started cramping so after 5 minutes I attempted to remove it the way I remove my LC by holding the stem and pinching the bottom if the cup and I felt my uterus coming out my cervix lol. I had to reach in and break the seal all around while pinching the bottom and wiggling it. It was a task. I could not imagine going trhough that 2x a day or more lol

Thanks for the comment... I already ordered a small MeLuna, but it's good to keep potential problems in mind, and I will likely order another cup in a few months (money's tight) for comparison and back-up.
