Hello.

I just moved to the northern part of Western Australia a few months ago, and I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for where to buy a new Diva Cup online (where the shipping cost isn't more than 100% the product price.) Or, if another type of cup is more readily available, I could be persuaded to try another style.

Any suggestions appreciated.
Thanks.

May I suggest that you first look into which cups would work for you before you focus on where to get one?
The Divacup is a long cup, it may not fit you comfortably, depending on how high or low your cervix sits.

Oh wait... you say a 'new' Divacup, so you probably mean a replacement. Sorry, reading fail.

Well, I've never looked into that particular cup, but I do know that Fleurcup offers worldwide shipping for a low flat rate.

I am from Australia too, so I know it's quite difficult. I agree with the previous poster- work out which cup is the best for you first.

The best deals come from overseas, shipping is generally cheaper too. In general, try to purchase through the actual companies as most ship here. You can get some good deals on E-bay too.

If you want a Lunette, do not purchase through the Australian site as it costs a fortune. Try luneshop.com instead. Femininewear.co.uk is another good option for many cups.

Expect around 2 weeks for delivery. Hope this helps.

I'm in Australia too, but I've never used a Divacup. I have bought a Keeper (impulse by with no research, not a good fit) from an Australian website, and that took less than a week to arrive I think. MeLuna and LadyCup had very reasonable shipping costs.

The only thing I can think of is to buy it off of mc_sales, but it probably won't be new. Most people on there have at least tried their cup first.

The problem with mc_sales is that not many sellers are willing to post to Australia. Some don't even wish to post outside the USA. Unfortunately menstrual cups are not a mainstream product in Australia so they are difficult to purchase (you cannot buy them at chemist shops or drug stores) and if you do happen to find a seller, chances are its going to be expensive eg- $60.00 for a lunette (import costs, taxes, etc).

Postage here is generally expensive too, I can have a package mailed to me from the UK and it will cost less than $10.00. The same size package from another state could cost almost double.

The hassles you have when you live in the southern hemisphere...

I can post a Diva to Oz
It's about NZ$7-8 to send from here, but the diva is expensive (I'm working on that).
