Hi everyone! I've been stalking this community for quite some time and finally decided to create an account and make this post. I'm 15 years old (turning 16 in just over a week) and quite interested in making the journey into reusable menstrual products. My mother is grossed out by it, but nonetheless has allowed me to begin using them. The only problem is availability in Canada. The only cup available in Canada is the Diva Cup which I do not think will work for me due to it's length. I wish to purchase either a LadyCup or MeLuna, but it is very difficult to find sites which ship to Canada without ridiculous shipping fees (Almost $12 from femininewear!). I am really desperate to buy a menstrual cup and if this fee is the best it will be, then I will pay, but have any Canadians successfully purchased a cup from another site with a lower cost? Also, did you have to pay any customs or duty fees? Thank you in advance for reading

I'd highly recommend checking out the mc_sales comm ( http://mc-sales.livejournal.com/ ) for secondhand or often brand new cups from users who decided they don't have use for them anymore. Most are willing to ship at more reasonable costs than online retailers are, and you might even get lucky and find a Canadian selling something you'd like once you scroll past all the Divas being sold, lol.

You can buy your Ladycup directly from http://www.ladycup.eu and they have cheap, worldwide, flat-fee shipping.

Does Me Luna have crazy Canadian shipping fees? I found that MeLuna from overseas (ie, the European site) was cheaper, even with international shipping, than ordering a MeLuna from the USA site by about $5! Plus I had way more choices. So make sure you're on the European MeLuna site and then look at it.

If your heart isn't set on those two brands, this website has several other brands with free worldwide shipping, clearly indicated with a little pink speech bubble.


It looks like they have a sale on with free shipping for the Ladycup + Ladypad!
The regular Ladycup is just €2.49 for shipping.

For the ones shipped free, based on personal experience, I would recommend the small Organicup for you. You could also check out Yuuki, Miacup, Mexican Lunacup, and Bellacup.

Finally, I seem to recall the Rubycup had cheap shipping worldwide, maybe even free from their actual website (?)
