Diva cup vs. Moon cup
« on: February 01, 2011, 02:32:25 PM »
Anybody used both the diva cup and moon cup? If so, which did you like better? I am trying to decide if I want another diva cup or if I want to try the moon cup, now that I am supposed to get a different size post-childbirth. (I realize I might be able to try using my size 1 diva cup again but I kind of have to get what I am going to use for PPAF while I am still in the US. I am thinking I better be safe than sorry. I have looked for menstrual cups where we live overseas but haven't found any there.)

What Mooncup are you talking about? Because there's a "Mooncup by Keeper" which is available in the US, and a "Mooncup UK" which is not. I have the Mooncup UK, and I really like it, but it's the only one I've ever used.

Whichever moon cup is in the CFPN store...? *shrug* I did look for the British moon cup in the place where we are doing mission service, as it is a former British colony, but no luck.

Thanks for asking this question - I'm wondering the same thing...

I've got both the larger Diva Cup (which is a bit too big for me  :o) and the smaller Mooncup by Keeper in Silicon.
For me, the Mooncup is a better option, as in addition to being a bit narrower, the silicon is a little firmer, which I think helps it "pop" a bit better. Also the mooncup has a longer stem at the bottom, which for me is an added bonus (easier to remove).

I guess it just really depends on exactly what shape and size you are.

Have you thought about maybe ordering online once you've worked out if the Diva cup is still the right size for you?
FWIW, I ordered both my cups online from the US as technically menstrual cups are illegal in Australia (not approved by the appropriate board or something). Bizzare!

I for one STRONGLY prefer the Mooncup UK.  It is shorter and fits me so much better than the Diva.  I tried the Diva once, and I am glad it was after I already had the Mooncup UK or I would have probably not used a menstrual cup at all.  The only place that carries the UK one that will ship to the US that I found was Bums and Roses (Link: http://www.bums-n-roses.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_19_36&products_id=243 - if you are ordering be sure you get the right size.  This link is for size A).

Here's photo lineup of some of the cups on the market.

I did quite a bit of looking into cups when I got mine and found that the mooncup (by Keeper) is smaller and shorter, so I went with that. I ended up trimming most of the stem off, but can still take it out easy enough.

thanks for posting the links! It was VERY helpful information! I have looking into the diva cup for several years and was afraid to try it. I had no idea that there were more brands out there. These links had comparisons and are helping me to choose the right cup for me! Thanks again!

ETA: I had originally chosen Lunette, but when I went to order, I didn't want to pay $40 for it, so I found a Diva Cup that was only $18 and went ahead and ordered that one. It should be here no later then next Mon. We'll see how it goes. I figure I will try it and if I feel the need to try the Lunette after, I will just have to save up and get it :D....Thanks again ladies
