Period Parties! A Round-Up of Menstrual Cups Available in Australia

Aussie women are somewhat limited in choice for Menstrual Cups and access to great info about making healthy choices. Let's face it, it's not in the best interest of disposable menstrual product companies to disclose their dirty little secrets right?

Producers of menstrual cups face a $14,000+ fee to get their product certified by Australia's Therapeutic Goods Administrator which is double edged sword. It means that the products available on the Aussie market have met a tight criteria in terms of safety and materials. It means that cheap, dangerous copies aren't available on our market. That's brilliant! You don't want to be putting nasties in your lady garden (#sorrynotsorry). It also means that companies who are producing awesome menstrual cups are put off by the inability to make a commercial return on their investment in Australia, so they simply don't sell their products here.

Great news -as an individual, you can order your menstrual cups from pretty much anywhere in the world. We strongly advise doing your own research and making sure the materials of your cups are medical grade silicone and or latex - and that these companies are legitimately standing behind their claims.

If you want to check out the brands that you can get in Australia, then in my personal opinion, you can't go past JuJu cups for comfort. We also have Lunette cups and Diva Cups.

Where to buy:

Our favourite place for all things menstrual is Scarlet Eve - who make and supply the most amazing reusable menstrual pads, and cups.

JuJu Cup

This one is my personal favourite. It's the brain child of an amazing Australian woman, and it's a comfortable, easy to use cup.

Lunette Cup

Another popular cup internationally, and world wide. I personally found the Lunette a little uncomfortable because of the stem - but most women can overcome this by trimming it off.

Finally, the Diva Cup. Probably the most widely known menstrual cup, as it's often available in pharmacies and retailers.
