Hello everyone!
Sifting through a backlog of emails, I found one from Femininewear dated 3/25 about the April period pack. Off to the side, it said "From April 1st there will be a few changes for customers in the USA. To comply with FDA regulations some of the products that we sell will not be available to customers in the United States. Please keep an eye on your emails for more information nearer the time." April's surprise period pack apparently features a new-to-femininewear cup (brand name not mentioned), except "Unfortunately this brand will not be able to be sold to customers in the USA when it is listed on the website." which makes me a little concerned that the products that'll be restricted to us in the US at least from this site will include (at least some) cups.
Has anyone heard anything on these apparent FDA changes?

I don't know the details, but I thought there was some sort of change where foreign retailers who sell "medical devices" to U.S. customers have to pay higher fees than before. Bree, who owns Precious Stars Pads and the accompanying YouTube channel, stopped selling menstrual cups and cloth pads to U.S. customers in January because she wouldn't make enough from it to pay the accompanying fee.

FeminineWear has not announced specifics yet (that I know of), but has warned that many items from the site will not be available to those in USA after April 1.
