Hi All

My team and I are based in South Africa and we are distributors for MeLuna Menstrual Cups from Germany.

We believe very strongly in the ‘menstrual cup revolution’ and we know that menstrual cups are going to make a very big difference in lives throughout Africa.

Our website has recently been launched at www.meluna.co.za and we would like to include more informative material and/or pictures on our site. So, if you have the time, please take a look at our website and please let me know if you have any feedback or any corrections which are required on our site, or if you can recommend any improvements, etc for our site please.

Your kind assistance will be sincerely appreciated.

Yours sincerely

Kathryn van den Berg

Hum... I'm not sure what to think about the whole "TMI" phrasing... you're selling a great product that can make women's daily life easier, so just own it ! Also, the links below provide very intersting info, so why the small print ? It's a shame this valuable info isn't more accessible/visible.

A few more specific notes : not all Meluna sizes actually hold the amount of a super tampon. If I remember correctly, a regular tampon holds about 9ml, while a super goes up to 15ml. Similarly, "it can be worn for up to 12 hours" is a better phrasing than "it lasts for 12 hours" because some women actually have a very heavy flow, and therefore will need to change more often (I think you mentionned it somewhere, too). Including some people that may be recommended to buy a smaller size...

Also, I know the size guide comes from Meluna in Germany, but it would mean so much to us cup users if ONE cup company would finally ackknowledge that vaginal length (or cervix placement) is an actual thing, and an individual factor that mostly determines what size someone can comfortably wear. Specifically, I wish young girls/ virgins were not systematically oriented towards the smallest size available, only to find out that they actually have a long vagina, and come here freaking out that "their cup got lost up there". Also I doubt being of a petite frame has much to do with it, but actually I don't have scientific evidence one way or the other. Maybe the petite cup users with a high cervix (or the opposite) could comment here and let us know ? ;)

Your website is too wide for my 1024 px screen. The actual information fits just fine, the two white bars at the sides don't.

I'm sharing Juliiie87's thoughts about the TMI thing. Information about cups is not TMI if cups are what you're selling.

The German Meluna site is pretty comprehensive, so I'd say that's the logical place to look for which information to include. But I, too, would LOVE to see a cup seller/manufacturer's website acknowledge individual differences in cervix height and menstrual flow.
On my heavy day, I can wear my high-capacity cup for all of two hours. Twelve hours? Don't make me laugh.

Edited to delete what I said so there won't be any misunderstandings.
