Why use the Lunette Menstrual Cup?
The advantages of Menstrual Cup
Lunette menstrual cup is a liberating alternative to disposable tampons and pads. Once you get a Lunette menstrual cup, you will never be left without menstrual protection again. You can say goodbye to uncomfortable, bulky pads and you don’t have to worry about getting different sized tampons to get through each period.
The Lunette menstrual cup is as easy-to-use as a non-applicator tampon. Simply fold and insert. Because a Lunette can hold much more liquid than a tampon, it only needs to be emptied 2 to 4 times per day during normal flow, so the times you have to deal with it are less frequent.
Hygienic & Safe
With tampons, fibers can be caught in the vaginal canal upon removal and its absorpency can dry out the mucous membrane. Pads create a stifling, moist environment that is a breeding ground for yeast infections, bacteria and odor. The menstrual cup is more sanitary because it does not disrupt the natural lubricating ability of the vagina or interfere with the natural process of shedding menstrual blood, dead cells and bacteria.
The Lunette menstrual cup has received approval from government health agencies in multiple countries. Not only has Lunette received FDA approval in the United States, it has also been approved by the TGA, Australia's regulatory agency for drugs and medical devices. In Finland, all Lunette products have received the prestigious Key Flag emblem, a certification for the highest quality of Finnish products. For further piece of mine, there have been no reported cases of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) in connection with the use of menstrual cups.
The average woman spends between $48 – 84 per year on disposable tampons and pads. The Lunette is a one-time cost that will last for years. That
saves you a chunk of money!
A Lunette menstrual cup is an eco-thing. It will last for years and during the cup's lifespan, there will be no waste to dispose of – no accumulation of plastic applicators, wrappers or bio-waste from used tampons and pads. In fact, the Lunette box and enclosed informational material is made from recycled paper. In Finland, the Lunette menstrual cup is produced in a factory that gives priority to environmental issues.
The Lunette menstrual cup can be worn during sports and other physical activities, just like a tampon. And there are extra benefits to having no strings: sleeping naked is loads more comfortable, no risk of a peek-a-boo string at the beach, and cups are so discreet that your partner won't notice a thing during oral sex.
The Lunette menstrual cup can be worn at any time in your menstrual cycle, during your heaviest and your lightest flow, day and night. It eliminates the need to have "supplies" on hand at all times during period. No more smuggling tampons up your sleeve or taking your purse to the restroom.
The lining of the Lunette menstrual cup is smooth which makes cleaning very easy. Because the tab of the Lunette menstrual cup is flat, it does not collect bacteria. You can disinfect the cup by boiling it briefly in water, using the Lunette disinfecting wipes, or rubbing alcohol.
