Hello,

I have a diva cup small (Canadian, woo!) but I'm finding it's too long and I can't always use it comfortably. It either doesn't pop open or is difficult to remove and leaks when half full. The stiffness is fine, but I wouldn't want anything stiffer. I don't like wearing it inside out because the lack of grip makes it hard to remove.

However, it seems that no other cups are available in stores in Canada, and that companies are not allowed to sell to Canadian addresses due to health regulations (e.g. Meluna, Lunette). Has anyone in Canada been able to order other menstrual cups online? Any recommendations for something shorter than the Diva Cup and available to Canadians would be much appreciated. Preferably something that is also not too expensive :)

Thank you!
P.S. Just wanted to say that the size chart is very helpful!

If Canadian regulations are like US regulations, then you can import any cup you want -- as long as its for your own personal use. IOW: You cannot import cups with the intention of selling them. I think all but a couple of brands are available to you.

Another option is checking out our sister community, mc_sales, which has cups up for sale that didn't work for other users. It is pretty overrun with Divas but you'll find a number of different brands available, and at least I find that international shipping for that small of an item is no big deal (I even shipped a cup from Canada when the cruise ship I was working on ported there)

Thanks everyone, I ended up ordering a small lunette from luneshop. I wanted something really similar to the diva, good quality, and made of silicone, but shorter, and from my research it looks like lunette is really close to the diva cup, and it was cheaper, too! Hope the luneshop service is as good as everyone else's experiences on this site!
