I uh. May be in unexpected need of one. *quietly shoves burned remains of the previous cup into the bin*

I had a Mooncup and it worked fine but had some hard to clean nooks and crannies that bothered me. Cheap postage to Australia preferred!

(If you're wondering: you boil them for hygiene reasons. But it's important to remember to stop boiling them >.>)

Let me recommend a locally made one. http://www.juju.com.au They are quite a firm cup, I understand, but they're the only one I have tried and they work just fine for me.

Check out their "Share the dignity".

Because they are now passed as a clinical product in this country they are now quite available. Just not, ot seems at most chemists. I got mine from an organic store on Scarborough Beach Road.

I use a Lunette. Though really, it's not necessary to boil them unless you've had an infection. A good washing before and after use is generally sufficient. I mean, you don't boil other things that go inside there, do you?

That makes sense, and actually is the thing I was thinking of as requiring boiling!

I wouldn't boil your husband, but I will say that when my mother had a chronic yeast infection, it didn't go away until my father was treated for it. I mention it because she reports that the doctors scoffed at the idea, so I apologize if you've already thought about it.

I'm sorry it didn't work, but very glad to hear that your doctors are on the ball.

My Mooncup was a hassle to clean with all the little ridges and the writing. I did a lot of research and bought a Fleurcup; the round-based shape (common to a lot of modern cups) has a lot higher capacity than the narrow Mooncup shape, the holes are higher up as well, and it's practically entirely smooth other than the grip rings at the base.

It cost NZ$35 from this site, one of the cheaper ones available. I got the large size as I am of advaaaanced aaaage and had some overflow problems with the small Mooncup; I think the smaller size would have been all right due to the high-capacity shape but it's fine either way. One thing to note is that I could bung the Mooncup up there no trouble but the peach-skin texture of the Fleur makes it sort of... grippy? and sometimes it's easier to get in with a drop of lube.
