I have a question.

I have recently put a lot of research into ordering my first menstrual cup. I picked the Meluna Classic I can't wait for it to get here!

The question I asked myself over and over while looking into all the different products is Why do menstrual cups seam to be nearly exclusively European? I know that the keeper, moon cup, and diva cup are American but three is a very small percent of the numerous brands of cups that are out there. Even these brand seem to be harder to get than I would like. How have cups gained so much popularity in Europe with so very little in the US? I am just confused as to how I have never herd of menstrual cups until my 20’s. Why is it that there are pad/tampon commercials on tv during almost every commercial break but there is not a single menstrual cup company advertising in America? and why can’t go in Walmart or local drugstore and buy a menstrual cup? Do you think this is in our future for them to be more widely available? Why isn't it all ready a reality? What is the difference in our cultures American and European for the difference in popularity? My last question is their any US company/store/website that I can order European cups from.

I'm not the OP, but both my 2 Fleurcup orders, and over a dozen friends who have ordered them took Minimum 10 days, average 2-3 weeks to arrive to the UK, all at different points of the year. :( very annoying as Femininewear orders come 2-3 days!

I'm on the west coast of the US, ordered from Fleurcup website and Melunas from menstrualcup.co and received both orders in about 10 days. Interesting the shorter delivery time to go such a longer distance!
