Few pieces of news

  • Amy Cup (who previously offered a different shaped cup with applicator tube – now has a “Crystal” cup that is the same sort of design as the more standard menstrual cups.  Appears to be available only in blue.  Details on the Amy Cup listing.

  • Female Cup” has been spotted on “deal of the day” type sites in Australia and Switzerland, the latter site shows a picture of a different cup than the one normally shown as Female Cup.  So it is unclear if they have changed designs or not.

La Luna site – directing to the Mahina site  &  the Mahina site with a (hopefully accidental) line saying the cup is worn in the womb

(also, it’s a small quibble, but a 10 year lifespan of a cup I wouldn’t consider a “lifetime of freedom” – I’d personally want to hope my lifetime is looooong past that :P)
