How to use Lunette menstrual cups
At home, at work, on holiday, on the go! Lunette menstrual cups are designed to be simple and fuss-free.
Simply fold and insert. Done!
Use the guide below and you’ll be a period ninja in no time.
Check that the air holes at the top of your cup are open. Wash your hands.
Wash your Lunette with Feelbetter Cup Cleanser and rinse it carefully.
Fold + Hold
Get comfy: you can insert the cup while sitting, standing or squatting. Spreading your legs will help with a successful and comfortable insertion. Relax.
Fold the cup in on itself to make flat, then in half to form a C shape.
Keep it rolled up and guide it rim first into the vagina. To check that the cup has fully opened, slide a clean finger up to the cup bottom and feel it – it should be round. Lunette can be used any time in your menstrual cycle, from heavy to light flow days.
Wear + learn
Lunette is emptied about 2–4 times a day, can be used for up to 12 hours, also overnight. The measuring lines on the cup help monitor your flow and easily learn your rhythm.
Remove + empty
Wash your hands and relax your muscles. Grasp the bottom of the cup. To break seal, squeeze the bottom of the cup.
Be sure not to pull it out by holding the stem alone. Tip contents into the toilet. Rinse & Reuse.
Clean + sanitize
Lunette should be cleaned before and after your cycle, and after emptying. To avoid odor and discoloration, rinse first in cold water, and then wash with hot water and Lunette Feelbetter Cup Cleanser designed for silicone cups.
How does it work?
The Lunette menstrual cup fits nice and snug, held in position by the seal formed by the walls of the vagina and the vaginal muscles. Your interior is superior and does all the work — you’ll barely feel a thing!
The cup is placed entirely inside the lower part of the vagina, just behind the pubic bone below the cervix.
Vaginas are tilted backwards, so guiding the cup towards the small of your back, moving it up and down will help you find the correct and comfortable position.
Rotate the cup to check that it has fully opened and doesn’t leak. Your cervix may move during menstruation, so inserting the cup requires practice and knowledge of your own anatomy.
Tips for first time menstrual cup insertion
Relax and take your time: Choose alone time when you can focus without distractions or interruptions. Perhaps after a warm bath when you are relaxed. If you are too nervous, the vaginal muscles will tighten, making it uncomfortable, if not impossible, for successful insertion.
Get Acquainted with yourself: It is always a good idea to know your own body. Take some time to locate the vaginal opening and even insert a finger to locate your cervix. It feels exactly like the tip of your nose. Knowing where your cervix is will help you to position the cup properly and not insert it too high.
Practice during your period: The vagina is more flexible and the blood works as a lubricant. OR . . .
Take a “dry run” before your period: You might be more comfortable practicing before your period if you feel squeamish about touching blood. In this case, use water as a lubricant.
Try different folds that accentuate the insertion poin: Most women use the typical C-fold. However, there are many ways to fold a Lunette. The video here will show you nine different folds.
Proper insertion direction: Be aware that the direction of insertion needs to be aimed towards the small of your back — not straight up.
Be patient: Know that it may take several times before you are successful. If you begin without the expectation of perfect insertion, you are more likely to be relaxed and pleasantly surprised when success happens.
Assess the stem: Once inserted, you will need to decide whether or not to keep the stem. If it protrudes, it will be uncomfortable. In this case, you likely won’t need the stem and can trim it off. However, if not, you may need it to assist with removal.
Tips for first time menstrual cup removal
Again – RELAX: Just as with insertion. Take your time!
Do NOT pull on the stem: The stem is used to gain access the bottom of the cup. If you pull on the stem, it will hurt! It will also create a mess since the cup won’t be supported or controlled when it exits.
Squeeze bottom to release suction: This is the key – the bottom of the cup has ridges for gripping. Grip the bottom and tweek the cup to the side. The idea is to pull an edge away from the vaginal wall to release suction. You will hear it when this happens.
Rock gently: Once suction releases, gently rock the cup from side to side as you pull it out. This technique might not be necessary, but helps with removal if the cup is feeling stubborn to come out.
Check that the air holes around the top are fully open. Wash your hands and clean your cup with water and mild soap (seriously, none of that scented crap!)
Boil it in a large pot for 20 minutes before you use it for the first time.
First, tip the blood into the toilet. Rinse with cold water and then wash with warm water. Use Lunette’s specially formulated menstrual cup wash to make it squeaky clean.
When your period is over, disinfect your cup by either boiling your cup or using Lunette disinfecting Cupwipes. Lunette should be disinfected before and after your cycle.
The Lunette Cupwipes are handy while camping or in a gross porta potty. They eliminate most germs and enable you to use the cup safely even if water is not available. Wipes are packed separately so they are easy to carry with you.
At Work, I Can’t Wash my Lunette with the Washing Liquid. Should I Wash the Cup with Perfumed Soap or Tap Water?
No. Perfumed soaps with unknown pH values might coat the cup with a layer of irritants that could damage the precious mucous membrane of the vagina. Some of these soaps may also contain agents that might damage the silicone. It’s better to wash Lunette with tap water than use the wrong kind of soap. Lunette is smooth on the inside, making it easy to clean with water alone. When you and Lunette return home, consider our Feelbetter Liquid Wash — it’s specially created to clean the cup gently and thoroughly without damaging the cup or irritating your body (plus it smells divine!).
How to clean menstrual cup in public toilet?
Don’t worry, we’re not going to tell you to run to the sink that’s on the other side of the bathroom stall. Remember that Lunette cup can hold blood for up to 12 hours! However, life happens, and we understand your fears.
Our Lunette Cup Wipes amazing, disinfectant, and super convenient when you don’t have access to water (aka a bathroom stall).
Can I use other cleaning products or wipes to clean my Lunette menstrual cup?
Basically yes, but we do recommend our own products since they have been developed to work with our Lunette products.
When using another brand make sure that they don’t contain any harsh chemicals, oils, perfumes or colorants that might leave residual on the cup and irritate the sensitive vagina.
How do I know if I’ve cleaned my Lunette menstrual cup well enough?
When your Lunette is clean it doesn’t have any colors, smells or oily residue on the surface.
How can I clean my cup when I am travelling or camping?
We recommend trying our handy Cupwipes when water isn’t available. They are individually packed disinfecting wipes that are compostable. Super easy when camping!
