Description

Just fold, insert like a tampon and it collects blood rather than absorbs it. You empty it rather than change it — a little bit different.  By the way, every Lunette comes with its own satin storage pouch.

The Lunette cup, model 1
Is recommended for light to medium flow or for ladies who have never had sexual intercourse. The diameter is 41 mm (1.6 inches) by 47 mm (1.9 inches). The stem measures 25 mm (1 inch). The volume of the cup is 25 ml (0.85 fl oz). Model 1 is made from softer silicone than model 2.

The Lunette cup, model 2
This cup is our bestseller, it's recommended for medium to heavy flow. The diameter is 46 mm (1.8 inches) by 52 mm (2 inches). The stem measures 20 mm (0.8 inches). The volume of the cup is 30 ml (1.0 fl oz). Made from a firmer silicone than model 1.

Lunette Áine

The new coral color Lunette menstrual cup is called Áine.

Áine is the Goddess of moon, love, fertility and Midsummer in Irish mythology. She was later known as an Irish Fairy Queen. Áine is also a Finnish word that means “substance” and “matter”.  And this cup really matters! The beautiful coral is one of the trendiest colors for the upcoming season and a beautiful homage to this goddess of Summer. The Summer Solstice used to be a great celebration in honor of the Goddess Áine.  So it is fitting that we've released this model for purchase during Summer 2011.

The Lunette Áine is available in sizes 1 and 2.

Lunette Cynthia

Lunette Cynthia is our newest product -- a beautiful violet colored menstrual cup.  As one of the names for goddess Artemis, this Greek goddess of the moon, hunt and the night sky was later connected to Selene and Diana.  So continues our tradition of using women-honoring, mythological names to differentiate our products.  After all, shouldn't a woman get in touch with her inner goddess? Cynthia is an important symbol for young, independent and unmarried woman. In mythology, she is worshipped as a Maiden Goddess.  A flower sacred to Cynthia was Amaranth, which has the same deep purple color that inspired us to create this beautiful violet Lunette.  This purple color reminds us of the beautiful northern lights that grace the skies above Finland during Winter months.

The Cynthia Lunette comes with an elegant purple satin storage pouch.

Lunette Diana

The Lunette Diana has the same classic, comfortable design as our clear Lunette menstrual cups, but with an opaque light Spring green color. Like the clear cup and the Selene, it has an elegant frosted appearance and comes with a matching green satin storage pouch. In Roman mythology, Diana was the goddess of the moon, the hunt, nature, childbirth and protector of the weak. Doesn't this description sound like the modern woman? Besides her role as a heavenly super-hero, Diana was also a goddess of the woodlands. Woodlands that remind us of Spring and the peaceful forests of Finland where we make our cups.

Lunette Selene

Symbolizing femininity, this lunar deity was depicted as a goddess because the moon appeared to become pregnant and give girth to a new moon each month. Legends portray her as goddess with the power to ease childbirth and inspire love.  Because of her highly developed sense of intuition, she was also known as the patron of solutions.

The pouch is light blue and matches the cup. The Selene is available in both size 1 and 2. 

Lunette cups are the only colored cups approved by FDA. It is made of the same U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved silicone as our other cups. The color ingredient is also FDA approved, doesn’t contain heavy metals, and is safe to use.

How to use a menstrual cup?

You should sterilize your Lunette Cup before initial use:
Before first use, check that the air holes at the top of your cup are open. Wash your hands and clean the Lunette cup by washing with water and a mild soap. Then boil it in a large amount of water for 20 minutes before first use. Make sure that there is enough water so that the cup does not burn on the bottom.
TIP:  Place the cup in a wire whisk to prevent contact with the bottom of the pan during boiling
.


How to use the Lunette menstrual cup?

1. Wash 2. Fold 3. Hold 4. Insert 5. Remove and Rinse 6. Re-use

The Lunette menstrual cup should be emptied on average two to four times a day and can be used during the night, although you should not exceed 12 hours at a time.

First, wash your hands with soap and hot water. You can insert the cup while sitting, standing or squatting; spreading your legs will facilitate insertion. Fold the Lunette menstrual cup in on itself to make flat, then in half. Keep it rolled up and guide it rim-first into the vagina. The cup is held in position by the seal formed with the walls of the vagina and pressure from the vaginal muscles.

When removing the cup, first wash your hands and relax your muscles. Break the seal by squeezing the bottom part of the cup, until you feel or hear the suction release. Now gently rock the cup from side to side while pulling down. Pull the cup out while pinching the ridged bottom of the cup. Tip the contents into the toilet.

After emptying, rinse the cup in cold water first to avoid the development of odor and discoloration. Afterwards, clean the cup with hot water and the Lunette Feelbetter Liquid Wash or a mild, perfume-free soap. Then the cup can be re-inserted in the vagina.

Customer Reviews
Rating great product
 
The Lunette cup is great! I got one after having my daughter because tampons were no longer working. I also wanted to save money in the long run and help out the environment. I read a lot of reviews on different cups and settled on this one. I am so happy I did! This holds an entire day worth of flow and even on my heaviest days I only need to change it once in the morning and once at night. It does take a little practice to get it to fit right and not leak but once you figure it out, it is amazing. The one thing that I didn't like about it is the length of the stem. I ended up having to cut it off because it was slightly painful to have the stem so long and it felt a little pokey . Not having them stem has been great and does not affect the function of the cup. Great product!

Rating Lunette size 1
 
This had a much easier learning curve than I thought! By end of day 1 I was totally comfortable with it. I am glad I did not let the unofficial determining factor for size (whether or not you've had a baby) affect my decision to get the smaller size. I have tried a Softcup in the past and this is much more leakproof! Definitely a fan.

Rating WOW!!!
 
I didn't think this would be as wonderful as all the online reviews and such that I had read. However it totally is. It is like magic for your flowtime. It does have a bit of a learning curve to get it positioned just right but even that is not rocket science. I have no idea how I lived so long without it.

Rating Worth the try!
 
I have only used my Lunette for once cycle and some spotting, but totally worth it! I used to be a tampon gal so the feeling of the cup wasn't any different. I liked that I was able to wear it while I had spotting. It may not seem like a huge bonus, but pads cause chafing if there isn't any liquid on it and tampons are painful and dry if there isn't enough liquid. My Lunette went in as usual and when I took it out, it felt as seamless as when I had my period. I will say that there is a learning curve, so be patient and don't give up after the first day. I enjoy using my lunette and I have convinced a few other friends to try it too!
