1.8" x 2"
Volume Of The Cup:
30ml (1.0 fl oz)
7.5ml (0.25oz) and 15ml (0.5oz)
Direction for Use:
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.
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 Point:
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.
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.
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.
How To Fold Your Menstrual Cup:
There are different ways you can get your folding groove on but all result in getting your cup snug and secure in the lower vaginal area and beyond the public bone (the sweet spot) where it can do its thing without you feeling it at all.
Once in place, the cup unfolds and gently springs into position where a seal is formed and keeps it held securely. Ready to rock!
Not sure which technique is best for you? Give yourself a little time to practice and try them out. Just like with tampons, the first time can take a little concentration but you’ll be a pro before you know it.
C-fold or Heart Fold:
Is the basic fold that most women use. Once inserted give it a moment to spring into position (don’t worry, it always does!)
Punch Down Fold or Shell Fold:
Is the fold most popular with younger cup users. It makes the cup smaller to insert, you just might need to give it an extra nudge and check that it has opened properly.
7 Fold or Triangle Fold:
Is the simple fold that’s maybe easier to insert and a good option if the other methods don’t seem to suit you as much.
How To Clean:
First Time Users:
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.
Cleaning During Your Period:
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.
After Your Period:
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.
Cleaning When You’re Out And About:
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.
