Lunette Cup Review

lunette menstrual cup review

This Lunette Cup review might just convince you that this is the right menstrual cup for you. If you’re already using a Diva cup or any other kind of menstrual cup, or if you’re thinking about switching to a menstrual cup as an alternative to pads & tampons, then you’ll be surprised at just how much this little cup has to offer compared to competitors.

My Lunette review will show you that the Lunette Cup is one of the best menstrual cups for beginners.

Lunette Menstrual Cup Review

As I have mentioned in my complete menstrual cup buying guide, the Lunette Cup is one of the best reusable menstrual cup available today. It’s an excellent all-round cup which means it’s great for beginners or women who aren’t sure which cup to buy to start with.

The Lunette cup is made in Finland so you can be assured that the quality is of the highest standard. The cup is constructed from soft, comfortable silicone that is medical grade and FDA approved.

The design of the Lunette cup is less rigid than that of the Diva cup. Many women find it a more comfortable cup to wear, particularly if they’re a beginner, new to wearing menstrual cups or have just started their period.

The Lunette Cup comes in two sizes:

  •  Size 1 is for women who are very active physically and need flexibility, who have a lighter flow or who are not sexually active. This makes it a great cup for teens.
  • Size 2 is made of a slightly firmer silicone for women with weaker vaginal muscles. It also has a larger capacity so works better for a heavy flow.

WHAT WE LIKE:

  • Softer silicone – The Lunette Size 1 is made of a softer silicone than the Size 2 (and many other cups) so it feels more comfortable and is great for women with particularly tense vaginal muscles i.e. teenagers, women who are virgins and women who are very active.
  • Easy to clean – The Lunette has a solid stem which makes it a bit easier to clean out.

WHAT WE DON’T LIKE:

  • Price – The Lunette is a more expensive cup. Roughly $10 more than the Diva Cup.

Why Choose a Lunette Cup Over Any Other Menstrual Cup

Choose a Lunette cup if you value both comfort and capacity.

If you want a less rigid cup, then the Lunette is a great choice. If you are sensitive “down there” then you’ll definitely prefer a Lunette Size 1 over the Diva cup in particular. (If you want a really soft cup, you should go for the Sckoon though. Read my Sckooncup review here.)

If you’ve got a standard cervix height, the Lunette Cup Size 1 is a great choice for you because it’s not a terribly long menstrual cup. The Lunette Size 2 is 0.5 cm longer than Size 1 so isn’t ideal for a lower cervix woman.

If you have a heavy flow, the Lunette Cup Size 2 offers a full 30 mL capacity and this comes without having to be as long as the Diva cup too. Note that the Lunette Size 2 is a more rigid cup than the Size 1.

What Women Say About the Lunette Cup

Lunette is easier to keep clean and insert.

High quality silicone increases the comfort level. Most cups you have to cut/trim the stem b/c it irritates the labia skin, but this one isn’t a problem. I’ve heard of people who have a whole collection of cups w/removed stems where the Lunette is the only one they never bothered to cut.

The stem is SOLID (not hollow, unlike other cups) making it very easy to clean

After trimming the stem of the Lunette I could not even feel it when using. The Diva Cup caused me a lot of pain when wearing because of it’s length and inflexibility. I forgot a few times I was even on my period when I used my Lunette!

The model 2 is typically for women who have already given birth, however, it’s also for women with heavy flows. I have never had children, but am glad I have the model 2, definitely perfect for those of us with a full week 🙁 No leaking and can’t feel it at all.

I’m so glad I gave the lunette a chance! I could find the cup easily AND removal is so much easier and better than the lily cup!

This is easy to use and clean but most importantly very comfortable.

How to Check Your Own Cervix Position (Low Cervix)

measuring your cervix

You’ve probably hear the term “low cervix” bandied about before. But what do it mean to have a low cervix? To start, you should really know what a cervix is and where it’s located. Your cervix is at the inside end of your vagina and is a small opening that leads to your uterus.

 

How do I tell if I have a low cervix?

Here’s how to measure your own cervix. It’s pretty easy actually!

  • Measure at the beginning of your period. Your cervical height changes throughout your cycle.
  • Using clean hands, either sitting on the edge of the bath or a closed toilet or standing with one leg up, insert your middle finger into your vagina.
  • Some people people say the cervix feels like the end of your nose, others like a small squishy donut. You’ll know you’ve reached your cervix because your finger will not go any further up.
  • Using your finger as a guide, measure how far you can reach inside before feeling the cervix. You can judge this by using your knuckles as a ruler. If you only get as far as your middle knuckle, you have a low cervix. If you can get your finger all the way in or can’t reach your cervix using your finger then you have a high cervix.

I have a low cervix. Can I use a menstrual cup?

In order to use a menstrual cup you need at least two inches between the opening of your vagina and your cervix. If you can get your finger in as far as you’re middle knuckle then you’re probably ok. Most women can use a menstrual cup successfully.

 

What are the best menstrual cups for a low cervix?

If you’ve got a low cervix you need to choose a menstrual cup to suit your vagina. You’ll need a shorter cup length for sure. Here are a couple of menstrual cups suitable for a low cervix:

FemmyCycle Menstrual Cup Low Cervix Size

The FemmyCycle Menstrual Cup Low Cervix Size is one of the best menstrual cups for low cervix vaginas. It’s the shortest menstrual cup on the market so perfect to try out if you’ve struggled with other menstrual cups.

 

Lena Cup Small

The Lena Cup Small is a good option for women with a low cervix. The bell-shaped cup is comfortable and the small size cup is only 4.6 cm in length which is one of the smallest cup lengths. Just make sure you buy the small Lena cup, not the large.

 

Lunette Size 1

The Lunette Size 1 is another good choose for women with a low cervix as it’s a shorter cup and is soft a comfortable.
