hello ladies. ive been wearing menstrual cups since august. I bought a large sckoon because im 26 with 2 kids and had 2 C-sections. no matter what I do the sckoon cup leaks.i assumed it was because sckoon is so soft and I do a lot of yoga so my pelvic muscles could be too tight. I did further research and found that my cervix most likely sits inside the cup since its very low. I did more research and found 3 good cups for low cervixes....the meluna mini size medium, the eco cup 2 and lybera....but none of these cups are available to me in the unites states. I wrote meluna with no response and I wrote eco cup today but its so frustrating to know these cups will best suit me but I cant order them. does anyone in the u.s know how to order any of these. am I missing something here?

The Meluna and the Eco-cup are both shipping to the US.
I bought my Meluna at www.meluna.org (click on Union Jack for English, and know that prices include 19% sales tax, which get deducted from your purchase price during check-out when you enter a US shipping address).


I bought my Eco-cups at copetta mestruale - direct link below - you can change the language from Italian to English, just the button for "order" stays in Italian ("ordina"). The Eco-cup and Lybera seem to be identical brands - one for sale in pharmacies, one for sale everywhere else. Copetta mestruale have very, very good prices, and they also offer other brands, including Meluna.

I've had a wonderful shopping experience and customer service at both, and shipping to US was around 8-10 days, I think.

I wonder how you decided on those? We're you looking for input on a cup choice or help with your leaking as well as the info on ordering? If so, you could post more info on the leaks and your cervix height. Otherwise, as luceafara said - it should be easy to get melunas in the us. I have gotten them both directly from meluna.com and from femininewear.com. Good luck!

I agree with bklynmom, I'm not sure exactly how to help you. What is your cervix height? Do you have a low cervix or a dangly cervix? When do you leak? Immeditely? After a few hours? How heavy is your flow?

OP wanted to know how to order Meluna/Eco-cup/Lybera in the US. Maybe the disconnect comes from the post title.

i've never ordered from the company, but if you don't mind a used cup, i've had good luck using the mc_sales, and there are a few facebook groups where people buy/sell/trade reusable menstrual products like cups.

When does your cup start to leak? And does the cup feel like it's sitting too low? Does it leak that much? Do you have another cup you use, also?

I'm curious, because I have a low cervix when I use SckoonCup (large) and it doesn't leak. It did leak once when I realized that day it was attaching to my vaginal wall and not around my cervix.
