Lena Turquoise Small Menstrual Cup
The Lena Cup is a relatively new menstrual cup which has already received many plaudits for its design, ease of use and suitability for beginners!
It is a bell-shaped menstrual cup that collects your monthly menstrual blood. Inserted like a tampon, Lena sits comfortably in your vagina and offers a leak and sensation-free period.
Lena Cup is ideal for teens and adult users and offers complete protection during rest, sleep and physical activities.
Each Lena Cup is made from 100% premium medical-grade silicone and dyes. All silicon and dyes used in the making of Lena are made and tested in the USA.

We recommend that you first use the Luxury Moon guideline to choose what size of cup suits you. You may then use these Lena Cup guidelines to further refine this:
LENA FIT GUIDELINES:
Most people can wear either size Lena Cup but choose one over the other primarily based on flow amount, cervix height, and general physique. Unlike other brands, at Lena we do not believe that age and birthing history play a significant role in choosing a menstrual cup. Mothers with multiple births are happily using Lena Small while teenagers with a heavy flow choose LENA Large.
BLOOD FLOW AMOUNT
Lena Small is ideal for people with a Normal flow.
Lena Large is suited for people with a Heavy Flow.
Each user’s cervix is positioned differently during her period. For some, the cervix descends low into the vaginal canal while for others it sits high. If your cervix is positioned at a low to medium height in your vagina, Lena Small will work great for you. If your cervix is at a medium to high location, you can choose either size Lena Cup.
How your Lena Cup fits inside you will be unique to your body. Your own individual shape, pelvic muscle strength, and vaginal condition can determine which cup works better for you. Active users, whose pelvic floor muscles are strong, are better suited for Lena Small while people whose pelvic floor muscles are not as strong might benefit from using Lena Large.
Please note that if you have ever had Toxic Shock Syndrome, medical recommendation is that you should not use a menstrual cup thereafter.
CARE AND CLEANING
Keeping your Lena Cup clean is essential for your vaginal health as well as for prolonging the cup’s life. During your period, wash your cup with mild soap and warm water whenever emptying it. We advise that you boil your cup between periods*.
Inspect your cup often – if you notice any surface damage, please replace your cup immediately.
BEFORE USING YOUR LENA CUP FOR THE FIRST TIME
- Boil your Lena Cup*
- Wash your hands with mild soap and warm water
- Insert your cup following the instructional manual
*Immerse your Lena Cup in boiling water for 5-7 minutes at a time to sterilize it – try to keep your cup from touching the sides or bottom of the pot by using a pair of tongs to keep it steady and remove it from the boiling water. Let your Lena Cup cool down completely before use.
CARING FOR YOUR LENA CUP DURING YOUR PERIOD
You can clean your Lena Cup using any mild unscented, non antibacterial, water-based, natural if possible soap. Harsh chemicals can potentially compromise your cup’s composition and cause irritation when inserted. Antibacterial hand soaps (such as those in public restrooms) and heavy-duty facial cleansers should never be used to clean your cup.
STORING YOUR LENA CUP
Store your clean and dry cup in its original 100% cotton bag or any breathable container or bag. Do not store your cup in containers that do not allow for air to get in.
Mild silicon discolouration is possible over the lifespan of your cup – mild to moderate discoloration does not affect the way the cup is performing but always inspect your cup for any visible surface or component damage. If your cup gets heavily discoloured, we suggest that you replace it.
To avoid staining, rinse your cup with cold water before washing it with a mild soap and warm water.
