The Lunette menstrual cup is the future of period care. It’s your user-friendly, safe, reusable, and eco-logical alternative to pads and tampons. Plus, using Lunette menstrual cups helps you rack up good karma points by protecting the environment and your purse strings offering peace of mind and a stress-free cycle.
You’re all set with Lunette: just fold, insert like a tampon, and let it do its thing. Lunette menstrual cup collects fluids rather than absorbing them, keeping your superior interior naturally lubricated and healthy. You empty it rather than change it, wash it, and reuse it. You never ‘run out of Lunette’ (like tampons) because it runs around with you: in a pretty, convenient pouch (in case you’re early) or in you, during your cycle. Relax, with Lunette menstrual cups, you can lose the leaks, and live your life.
Welcome to the future of period care…
- Made of medical-grade silicone in Finland
- Odorless, safe, and doesn't contain rubber latex
- Affordable and eco-logical - good for you, your purse, and the planet - with proper care Lunette will love you for years
- A sanitary and healthy alternative to disposable tampons and pads
- Easy-to-use, practical, and comfortable. It needs to be emptied only two to four times a day, and can be used overnight
- You can wear the cup when anticipating your period. With tampons, you risk dryness and irritation. Safe: not conducive to dampness, outbreaks of vaginal candidiasis or cystitis
- Your perfect teammate: wear during sports and other physical activities
- Designed for all ages and sizes
- Designed for those who have not yet engaged in sexual intercourse as well as those who use an IUD or contraceptive ring. If you are planning on using Lunette together with an IUD, we recommend discussing it with your doctor
- Enables you to monitor your flow by providing measuring lines on the inside of the cup (5 mL and 13.5 mL in size 1, 7.5 mL and 15 mL in size 2). The lining of the cup is totally smooth and the tab is flat, making cleaning very easy
- Not to be used during post-natal bleeding due to the risk of inflammation
- Not disruptive to the natural lubricating ability of the vagina, nor does it dry out the vaginal mucous membrane as tampons do
How to Use a Menstrual Cup
Wash: First, wash your hands with a mild, un-perfumed soap and water. When using the cup for the first time, you can lubricate it with water or a water-based lubricant to aid insertion.
Fold: Fold Lunette in on itself as shown in the picture. To do this squeeze the cup flat then fold it in half so that the rim makes a ‘C’ shape as illustrated here. Two other fold options are illustrated here: the ‘punch down’ and ‘triangle’ fold.
Hold: Hold Lunette firmly in its folded position and guide it rim-first into the vagina.
Insert: You can insert Lunette while sitting, standing or squatting; spreading your legs will facilitate insertion. You‘ll find the correct position in the vagina by practicing and getting to know your own anatomy. Unlike a tampon, the cup is positioned in the lower part of vagina, but beyond the pelvic bone. In order to avoid leaks, make sure that the cup has opened properly by rotating the cup after insertion.
Remove: To remove Lunette, first wash your hands in clean water and relax your muscles. Break the seal by squeezing the bottom part of the cup until you feel or hear the suction release. Now gently rock the cup from side to side while pulling down. Be sure not to pull it out by the tab alone – this will cause the contents to spill and may cause discomfort. Always pull the cup out while pinching the ridged bottom of the cup. Be careful not to damage the tab or cup with your nails. Tip the contents into the lavatory. Rinse and re-use: Lunette should first be rinsed in cold water, so that menstrual blood does not stain the cup or cause odors. Then, wash Lunette carefully in warm water and soap to clean it sufficiently before reinsertion. Use mild, perfume-free soap for washing or try our Lunette cup wash. When water is not available it’s okay to wipe the cup with toilet paper and/or a Lunette Cupwipe. You can give it a proper wash the next time. Care: When your period is over, wash Lunette carefully and store it in its own satin bag for proper ventilation, and never store it in an airtight plastic container or bag. Lunette should be cleaned before and after your cycle, and after emptying. Should any problems occur, please contact your distributor by phone or email, or the manufacturer by email, firstname.lastname@example.org or call +358 50 3554 064, or visit our FAQ-section! Cup wisdom:
- Replace Lunette when any signs of damage are observed
- Lunette should sit in the lower vagina as a receptacle for blood and cellular lining which the uterus naturally sheds via the cervix during menstruation. If the cervix is obstructed, you could experience severe cramping
- Lunette is not a contraceptive device nor can it be used during sexual intercourse
- Lunette does not protect its user from sexually transmitted diseases
- Remember to wash your hands carefully when handling Lunette
- Don’t use Lunette for more than 12 hours at a time without washing it properly
- Remove Lunette and contact a physician if you experience symptoms such as general pain, burning, irritation, inflammation in the genital area, or discomfort during urination
- Keep Lunette away from children and pets
