...is our choice for women with light to moderate flow, younger, or have not yet experienced intercourse.
All Lunette menstrual cups are soft and pliable, however, Lunette Cup Model 1 is made of softer silicone than Lunette Cup Model 2.
...is recommended for women who have a normal or heavier flow.
This is the most important factor when choosing the right cup: the bigger cup is best for a heavier flow, and the smaller cup for a lighter flow.
Since every woman's anatomy is different, we sometimes recommend the smaller cup for heavier flow and vice versa.
This can depend on:
We designed the smaller Lunette Cup Model 1 as a 'starter cup' for younger women with tighter vaginal muscles to make insertion easier.
As we age, muscles lose elasticity; we give birth, and experience hormonal changes, which can affect menstrual flow. Look to your body, your lifestyle, your physical fitness level and your age for your answers to help you gauge size and fit size in proportion to your flow.
Many women transfer to the Lunette Cup Model 2 — the most popular choice for most adult women.
We recommend the smaller Lunette Cup Model 1 for young women who have not experienced sexual intercourse yet, but still have a heavy flow. Why? Because your muscles and hymen are tighter, it's easier to insert the smaller cup.
Pregnancy and hormones change the vaginal muscles, the shape of the vagina, and hipbone structure. For all our Moms out there, we recommend the Lunette Cup Model 2, to flex with you and your bodies life changes.
Wash your hands well, and see if you can reach your cervix during menstruation. It's easy to find, and usually located on the left side of the vaginal wall (when you touch it, feels like the end of your nose).
If your cervix sits low, it is better to choose Lunette Cup Model 1, as it's is shorter and will fit more comfortably inside your vagina. A low cervix can be touched very easily.
Sports that strengthen the core muscles like Yoga and Pilates also have a strengthening effect creating very strong vaginal muscles that can last a lifetime. If you're a physical fitness goddess, consider using Lunette Cup Model 1.
If you have an extremely sensitive bladder, the softer Lunette Cup Model 1 might be a match made in heaven.
The six-point scale called the Mansfield-Voda-Jorgensen Menstrual Bleeding Scale (named for the researchers who developed and tested it) helps women accurately understand their periods:
Lunette is emptied about 2-4 times a day, and can be used overnight for up to 12 hours.
You will quickly learn your own rhythm by viewing how much fluid your cup has gathered. The measuring lines outside of the cup help to monitor your flow.
Model 1: 5ml (0.17 oz) and 13.5ml (0.46 oz).
Model 2: 7.5ml (0.25 oz) and 15ml (0.5 oz)
