First of all, yes I know I posted quite recently but after a few days, other posts bring my older one down ( does that make sense? ) and no one else replies so anyways, I hope y'all don't mind! Anyways, from my last post, someone suggested sea sponge tampons and the Meluna shorty ( which both seem great for my very low cervix which is about a fingernail length in or 1cm, don't ask xD ) but they both seem to have to have very low capacity in order for them to fit. The Meluna could probably only last at most a couple hours on my heaviest day ( which sucks ) and sea sponge tampons would probably have to be trimmed really small ( am I right about that or is there some trick? ). Anyways, I was wondering if I could still use sea sponge tampons without having a small size and a teeny capacity like the Meluna Shorty ( I'm planning to buy the small or medium ). I know for one thing that my cervix is really this low ( read my other post pour favor ) so please don't suggest otherwise. And one more thing, I live in Canada so I have no idea which stores I can get a sea sponge tampon ( any particular art store? ) since when I check online, all I get are US websites ( with what I need but can't get ) and the Canadian websites that claim to have no sponges. I have no idea what and where to buy these sponges so if anyone could lend a hand, that would be greatly appreciated. Also, someone in my last post suggested I couldn't use any internal menstrual protection, is that true? I think that wraps up my questions and concerns for now. Thanks! I hope this will help anyone else in my place too.

When I googled about using art store sea sponges for menstruation I came upon this link:

Most art stores should carry them especially if there are pottery classes in your area and that's why they carry them. But, given the information in the link it might be worth it to purchase the expensive ones because they last a long time.
And, if they your parents don't trust you purchasing online could they purchase it for you?

Well, first of all thanks so much for the link ( I'll definitely look into the more expensive brands ) and secondly, my parents don't know about sea sponges and I doubt they'd allow it. Fyi, my mom has used pads her whole life so internal protection is an odd ball. But thanks to you ( and recent discoveries ), websites don't always show their products accurately so, the art stores probably stock sea sponges but don't "broadcast" them.
