Size Guide:

When Choosing your first cup there are a few factors to consider and there is no hard and fast rule. There are many 14-year-old virgins using the Model 2 Lunette, and we also know middle-aged women who love the Model 1.  The following guide should help you determine the best fit for you.

Factors to consider:

1. Your level of flow: This is the most important factor when choosing the right Lunette cup. As a general rule we can say that Model 2 is best for medium to heavier flow and model 1 for lighter flow.

2. Anatomy: Each woman’s anatomy is different. Because of this, we sometimes recommend the smaller Lunette cup for heavier flow and vice versa. The table below should help you in determining the correct size Lunette Cup.

Menstrual Cup General Sizing Guidelines

Determining your Amount of Flow

How to use the Lunette Cup:

Before first use: Check that the air holes at the top of your Lunette are open and clean. Wash the cup with water and a menstrual cup-approved soap or wash. Then sterilise it in a pot of boiling water for 20 minutes, making sure the cup does not touch the bottom of the pot and burn. Placing the cup inside a whisk can help prevent this from happening.

Insertion:

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly. Find a comfortable position, either sitting, standing or squatting. Relax.
  2. Fold the cup in on itself to make it flat, and then in half to form a C shape (known as the C -fold). You may also like to experiment with other types of folds.
  3. While firmly holding the folded cup, carefully guide it rim-first into the vagina. Once inserted, let go, and allow the cup to ‘pop’ open.
  4. To ensure the cup has opened completely, slide a clean finger up next to the cup and feel all the way around it. It should not be scrunched or folded anywhere.

You can use your Lunette on any day of your cycle (both heavy days and light). You can also insert your Lunette in anticipation of your period starting.

The Lunette cup will usually be emptied 2-4 times a day (depending on your level of flow). It can also be worn overnight or up to 8 hours.

Removal:

  1. Wash your hands and relax your pelvic floor muscles.
  2. Break the seal of the cup by squeezing the bottom ridged part of the cup. You should feel the suction release.
  3. Grasp the bottom of the cup tightly with your forefinger and thumb. Use a gentle back and forth rocking motion to ease the cup out.
  4. Do not pull the cup out by pulling the stem alone. This can break the stem and also result in spillage.
  5. Tip the contents into the toilet.

Rinse and Repeat!

How to Clean the Lunette Cup:

The Lunette cup should be cleaned before and after each menstrual cycle. It should also be rinsed under cold water each time it is emptied.

To help prevent odour and discolouration, thoroughly rinse the cup in cold water, THEN, you can wash with hot water and a menstrual cup wash such as the Lunette Liquid Cleanser.

Your vagina is a delicate space. Use the mildest, perfume, and oil-free soap, or a specifically designed menstrual cup cleaner ONLY on your cup. This will not only preserve the life of your Lunette cup but will also prevent the introduction of any chemical nasties to the vaginal environment.

At the end of each cycle, the Lunette cup can be sterilised in a pot of boiling water, in a microwave menstrual cup steriliser, or by using some rubbing alcohol.

Once cleaned, allow the cup to completely air dry and then store in its storage pouch, or in a ventilated container. Do not store your Lunette cup in a plastic bag or container.

Your Lunette cup should be replaced when any sign of damage to the silicone is observed.

    Great to see such a reduction in wrapping waste after just one cycle! Easier to use than I had imagined.

    Cup is too hard and uncomfortable for me personally. This is the 3rd cup type I’ve tried and I couldn’t wear it for more than 30 minutes. Great stem style and cool colours though.

    I’ve heard that cups take a couple of cycles to get right, but the very first time and every time after that I used this cup, it went in perfectly, no leaks at all. I have always leaked with tampons and had to wear pads with the tampons. I was shocked at how easy they are to use and not as gross as I thought it would be, at all. It made my period way easier and more comfortable. I should have swapped to cups years ago.

    My periods went from feeling dirty, to now actually feeling clean. You don’t even know it’s there. It’s incredible. No leaks, love it

    It is worth persevering. I’m in my early 40s, have not had children and have a retroverted uterus. I have just started using cups. I initially bought the Juju and Lunette cups. There was no leakage, which was awesome. I eventually found the Juju good to use, but the Lunette was very uncomfortable (probably too rigid for me). I found removal painful for both cups, leaving me feeling bruised, but found some fabulous young women on youtube who provide very useful information and tips. I then tried the Saalt soft cup, which is the perfect cup for me – I don’t notice it when its inserted, and is only a bit uncomfortable to remove. I’m adjusting my goals from eliminating the use of sanitary pads, to reducing use to 1-2 pads per month – that way I get a bit of a break if I’m feeling uncomfortable. But as someone who has never liked using tampons – the cups are fantastic. No worries about leakage, can last the full day while I’m at work, and no waste. My initial aim was based on environmental reasons, but I’ve found cups to also be much more effective than pads.

    This cup is great. Easy to insert. Easy to get out due to the ridges.
    I do find sometimes I need more capacity and as a result have to change it more often than is convenient. It could be a little softer to make it a tad more comfortable.

    Seems a bit firm in the lip, which makes removal more painful for me then other cups. Fit is great, love the nibbles on the stem for guidance.

    I’ve recently purchased the model 1 lunette cup and it’s just what I was after. I found the resources on the mca website helpful in choosing a cup. Previously I was using the model 2 lunette cup (for around 7 years) but gradually it was getting more uncomfortable to use. The model 1, although a bit smaller, is softer and moves more with my body whether I’m exercising, dancing or going to the bathroom without any leaking or moving.

    Clearly a sturdy cup. Switching to a cup just takes practice and confidence, be prepared to spend your first cycle learning about your anatomy! Learning to insert the cup felt straight forward enough, no leakages either. However, cup removal takes practice and privacy, I wouldn’t plan on using this outside of the privacy and comfort of home for the first cycle or two, just to get used to it. I won’t be looking back however! I’m so glad I have made the switch.

    I’m so happy I’ve switched to a menstrual cup. It was very easy to get used to and there are so many benefits. No more worrying about leaking on high flow days. It can be used over night. And no period smell.

    I have had a natural delivery so I initially bought a lunette 2 but found it still too big. Now I have version 1 and it’s perfect for me. I would never go back to tampons.

    Turning into a cup junkie! This is my second cup, the other i have is a Juju which i love but is getting old so decided to try this one. The lunette seems a little stiffer, but still easy enough to fold and insert/remove. I always cut off the stem completely as i find them too uncomfortable and my cervix is lower post babies 🙂 no probs at all with this cup and would recommend happily, i do still wonder about the dye though…. something so vibrant looks a bit weird going in seeing as i avoid all artificial things in my diet!

    It leaks. It’s painful and difficult to insert. I regret buying it. I’ve been trying to make it work for 5 months now (I thought practice makes perfect but perhaps not?)

      Hi Sarah, Thank you for your review of the Lunette Cup and we are sorry to hear you have not had success with it. If you would like to contact us through our website, we would love to try and help solve your troubles. Do you happen to know if you have a low, mid, or high cervix? as this can often affect the comfort of a cup. Depending on your age and stage, you may also find a smaller cup (like the teen options) more suitable for your anatomy 🙂

    Excellent product but takes a bit of practice so watch the videos and read the reviews for tips and hints. Red Herring on YouTube is great! Get to know your anatomy, don’t be squeamish and this cup is the best invention ever. Giving the cup a final twist once I think I have it inserted correctly seems to be the important thing to ensure a good seal and avoid any problems.

    Buying the Lunette has been absolutely life changing. I used to constantly be anxious about leaks and changing tampons and messy pads but since buying the Lunette all I have to do is change it once in the morning and once a night, and no leaks ever! LIFE CHANGING.

    The product itself is fine but I find it very difficult to remove. For me it sits quite high, and even with muscles relaxed and after breaking the suction I can only remove it by pulling on the end quite hard (which is not recommended). It’s a bit of an ordeal each time so I only use it at night, when I know I will have the time/space in the morning to remove it. I think I need to find a different cup better suited to my anatomy!
