The Lunette menstrual cup is emptied on average 2-4 times a day and can be used overnight, though for no longer than 12 hours at a time. You will quickly learn your own rhythm by viewing how much blood the cup has gathered. The measuring lines outside of the cup help to monitor your flow (model 1: 5ml and 13.5ml, model 2: 7.5ml and 15ml)
The Lunette menstrual cup can be used any time in your menstrual cycle – from your heaviest to your lightest flow. A back-up pad may be worn to assist in gaining confidence when first using the cup.
Tip the contents into the lavatory. You can put some toilet paper at the bottom of the toilet to make sure that one flush will clear out the bowl.
There is no need to remove the menstrual cup when going to the toilet, but after defecation there may be a need to check that the cup is still properly positioned. Remember to wash your hands carefully! Some women find it easier to relieve themselves and defecate without the menstrual cup.
You can use your Lunette cup with an IUD or with a contraceptive ring. It may be helpful to discuss using them together with your doctor. The strings of the IUD should be cut as short as possible and you should monitor their length regularly during periods. If the strings seem longer than normal, it might be a sign that the IUD has moved.
If you are using the cup together with a contraceptive ring, first insert the contraceptive ring in the uterine orifice and only then position the menstrual cup in the vagina.
Remember, after practice and getting to know your own body, using a cup will be second nature. Should any problems occur, please contact your own distributor by phone or email, or the manufacturer by email, firstname.lastname@example.org or call 877.LUVCUPS (877.588.2877)
