Model 1 or Model 2?

When choosing your first cup there are a few factors to consider. There are many 14-year-old virgins using the Model 2 Lunette, and we also know middle-aged women who love the Model 1.  Most women can use either cup, but one of them might be more right for you. Model 1 is 41mm and holds 25ml; Model 2 is 46mm and holds 30ml.

Factors you should consider:

  1. The amount of flow. This is the most important factor when choosing the right 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 and because of this we sometimes recommend the smaller Lunette cup for heavier flow and vice versa. These kind of factors are listed below:

 

  Lighter Flow Heavier Flow
Virgin 1 1
Teenager 1 1 or 2
Young woman, has not given birth 1 2
Young woman, has given birth 1 or 2 2
Adult woman, has not given birth 2 (or 1) 2
Adult woman, has given birth 2 (or 1) 2
Short vagina (you can easily reach your cervix with your finger) 1 1
Active sportswoman, e.g. pilates, yoga 1 1

Menstrual Cup Sizes – The Cup Size Guide For Your Body and Flow

Lunette is emptied about 2-4 times a day, and can be used overnight for up to 12 hours.

You will quickly learn your own rhythm by viewing how much fluid your cup has gathered. The measuring lines outside of the cup help to monitor your flow.

How to Use (It’s simpler than you think!):

Step 1: Wash
First carefully wash your hands with 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. The Lunette can be sterilised by boiling it in a large amount of water 2-5 minutes before first use.

Step 2: Fold
Fold the Lunette menstrual cup 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.

Step 3: Hold
Hold the cup firmly in its folded position and guide it rim-first into the vagina.

Step 4: Insert
You can insert the cup while sitting, standing or squatting; spreading your legs will facilitate insertion.

Step 5: Remove & Rinse
When removing the cup, first carefully wash your hands and relax your muscles.  If you cannot reach the bottom, tug gently on the tab; slightly pushing with your internal muscles may help to bring it down.  Break the seal by squeezing the bottom part of the cup, and remove it. Tip the contents into the lavatory.

Step 6: Re-use
Wash the menstrual cup carefully in water and re-insert it.  Use mild and perfume-free soap for washing if needed.  The cup should first be rinsed in cold water, so that menstrual blood does not make the cup develop a smell. When water is not available, from time to time you can also wipe the cup with toilet paper and/or Lunette Disinfecting wipes.
