After re-stumbling upon the idea of menstrual cups a few weeks ago, I did a bunch of research and I have settled on the Lunette. It's available on two sites as far as I know, the Lunette site, and Gladrags, which sells other products and brands. I'm kind of leaning towards Gladrags, because the prices are listed in US Dollars, as opposed to pounds, which I worry I am converting wrong and will end up spending more money than I intended. Also, I like that Gladrags is US-based, and sort of a one-stop shopping. However, it is more expensive. I was hoping that some of you had some more information that would sway me one way or the other.

Try femininewear.co.uk and luneshop.com.

Most customers on here seem to be very happy with femininewear, but luneshop has - I believe - the best deals on Lunette.

Oh and as far as converting goes, just go on Google and type 25 GBP to USD (for example) and it should convert instantly to the rate of the day ! Easy peasy.

Luneshop.com is the cheapest. I think I paid USD27.00 and shipping is free.

I find femininewear to be about the cheapest. Right now the lunette is £18, and that's ~28USD right now. Remember the exchange rate changes constantly, so it could be a little cheaper tomorrow, and a little more the next day. There are currency converters you can find on google and they're about as accurate as you can get. Don't be afraid just because it's in GBP or Euros.

Oh and i almost forgot! Don't worry about shipping either. It's usually not too much, because it's a small package, and still ends up being cheaper than the places in the U.S that do sell it, because of import tariffs. Femininewear ships royal air mail for about ~7USD, which still makes it slightly cheaper than gladrags.

Luneshop and Feminine Wear both have ways to convert the currencies to USD. On Feminine Wear, you click on the American flag in the shopping cart in the left column, and on Luneshop, I think it's a drop-down list at the top of the page.

I bought a Fleurcup off their website directly, and it converted correctly! :)

Also you can get Lunette from Amazon.com :)

Thanks for the advice guys! Gladrags was having a sale that included free shipping, so I ended up with going with a kit from them that included some of their reusable pads. I didn't mean to go against everyone's advice, but I thought since it was in the U.S. it might get here sooner.
