My Favorite Menstrual Cup for Beginners - #LunetteCupIf you are squeamish about the topic of menstruation then you may want to stop reading now. 

I have tried several menstrual cups over the years and despite being generally the same, they all have their differences. While most cups will work for most women slight differences in shape or materials means that menstrual cups aren’t one size fits all. When it comes to a cup that I would recommend to someone just starting out, it would be the Lunette cup

The Lunette cup is a little more stiff than the other cups I have tried so they are easier to insert and easier to get the placement correct on the first try. Unlike some other cups the Lunette opens up all the way when inserted so it is easier to tell that it is inserted correctly. Lunette has great instructions on how to insert and remove a menstrual cup along with several ways to fold a cup. I use the basic C fold or heart fold method.

The stiffer silicone also makes the Lunette easier to remove. Give the bottom a pinch and gently pull it out to empty the contents. The easier time you have removing your cup the cleaner the process is. 

I have been using menstrual cups for at least seven years now and I will never go back to tampons again. At first a cup may sound intimidating or even gross but really, they are so simple and convenient to use. 

Why should you use a menstrual cup instead of tampons?

  • Never worry about emergency runs to the drugstore for tampons again
  • No more bringing your purse to the bathroom with you while out in public (you may as well have a big red P on your forehead)
  • Less trash in landfills or worse, your sewer or septic tank (did you know that you shouldn’t flush tampons?)
  • If you did know that you shouldn’t flush now you won’t have them sitting in your bathroom trash can
  • Save money. Lots and lots of money
  • No risk of Toxic Shock
  • No chemicals in your most intimate areas

If you’re on the fence about trying a menstrual cup, give the Lunette cup a try. You can buy one for $39.99 and since menstrual cups last several years, think of all of the money you are saving. You have absolutely nothing to lose.

  1. I have been using a Lunette cup (my first cup) for 3 cycles and I don’t think it’s the right cup for me…but I hope to try something else when I have a little extra to spare.

    1. They are all shaped slightly differently so there probably is one out there for you. Have you tried trimming the stem? I have had to trim the stem on all of my cups or they’re very uncomfortable.

  2. I’ve been reading a lot about these lately and they seem like they work really well! I have used a cup, not Lunette, before and I really did like it a lot better than tampons. They didn’t have the right stiffness though, and it sounds like these do! They seem like a must have for every woman who is still getting their Aunt Flow! Thanks so much for the review!

  3. Thanks for the post. I have been on the fence about trying this company would be great to win and try.

  4. I’ve always used cloth pads, but this sounds like it may be easier… Glad to hear that it’s a good cup for a beginner.

  5. I’ve never used a menstrual cup, so would definitely prefer one well-suited to beginners. Lunette sounds like the way to go!

  6. Thanks for the review! It’s helpful to read comparisons; I’ve been wanting to try one of these, but given the initial cost it’s helpful to see how different brands compare before making a decision. this sounds like it would be a great beginner option.
