Frequently asked questions in brief

Can I use the cup on the beach or in the swimming pool?

Yes. You can use the cup with no limitations in any water-related activity, be it bathing or swimming. Moreover, you need to change the tampon after every swim while the cup has your back all the time. Simply empty the cup before you hit the beach or the pool and you do not have to worry about a thing until you come back home. The cup really does not care whether you are just comfy at home or at the beach.

Can I use the cup during the night?

Yes. In contrast to a sanitary napkin, the cup will not move a bit during the night. The risk of toxic shock is also minimized. There is also no need to wear underwear during the night - you can go to bed dressed like usually, even not dressed at all.

How to sterilize the cup?

You can either use a sanitation pouch included in the delivery or boil the cup for a while. Before you sterilize the cup for the first time, read our manual.

Should I feel the inserted cup?

No. You should not feel the inserted cup at all. You may feel the cup for several minutes after insertion itself, but not after that. If you are aware of the cup or if you even feel discomfort, try to find a different angle or depth of insertion. If the discomfort persists, check out the manual again or consider the cup of different size.

Can I use the bathroom with an inserted cup?

Yes. You can urinate as well as have a bowel movement without removing the cup whatsoever.

How do I choose the size of the cup?

The smaller size of the cup is recommended for women up to 30 years of age or for women who gave birth through C-section.

The larger size of the cup is recommended for women over 30 years of age or who gave birth naturally.
Smaller cup size is recommended for women whose vagina is very narrow and women experience difficulties to insert supersized tampons.

How often should I empty the cup?

LUNACUP menstrual cup usually lasts 2 or 3 times longer than tampons. Generally speaking, with the heavy flow the cup must be emptied every 3 to 6 hours. With the normal flow empty the cup after 8 or 12 hours.

Never leave the cup inserted for more than 12 hours, even when using the LUNACUP evolution cup, which can be emptied without removing.

How deep should I insert the cup?

The cup has to be inserted completely, including the stem. Sometimes, like in the case of the lower cervix, the stem has to be shortened. With the LUNACUP evolution cup just push the stem inside to first or second position. It is not necessary to shorten the stem of this cup.

Is there a way to make insertions of the cup easier?

The insertion or removal of the cup may be easier by using your pelvic floor muscles.
