I live in Canada.  My sister is going to leave on a trip in about two weeks, and she was hoping to order a menstrual cup online before then.  Has anyone ordered a cup online and received it really quickly?  She has a DivaCup but doesn't love it and wants to try another brand.  She finds that the DivaCup leaks a lot.  She has a pretty heavy flow.

Thanks so much!

In this case, I would not recommend oredring from Europe (my choice, usually), just in case it gets held up at customs.
I think Meluna has a CA store, Lunette may as well, and a bunch of brands can be found on Amazon and Ebay.

Now to decide which size and shape she needs....

Thanks! Just checked Meluna and looks like they are not currently shipping to Canada... It sort of sounds like she'll be better off just sticking to the DivaCup for now, I don't think she gave herself enough time. I'll sgugest that she checks Amazon though.

Oh, no! Sorry, I did not realize that shipping to CA was also not possible at the moment (I knew about the US).

If the Diva is too long, try flipping it inside out to shorten it. That will buy her some time until she gets another.

There are comparative size charts at http://sizecharts.livejournal.com/ and others at the Community FAQ.

I don't think the issue is that it's too long, but I'll suggest that to her to see! I have the same issue as her with the DivaCup (a lot of leaking), and it's better with a Lunette. So perhaps a Lunette would work well for her... Not sure. I'll show her that sizechart page! Thank you!

I PMed you, if you're near Ottawa I have an unused second hand.cup she could check out if she thinks shipping won't be fast enough.
