How does it work?
The Lunette menstrual cup fits nice and snug, held in position by the seal formed by the walls of the vagina and the vaginal muscles. Your interior is superior and does all the work — you’ll barely feel a thing!
The cup is placed entirely inside the lower part of the vagina, just behind the pubic bone below the cervix.
Vaginas are tilted backwards, so guiding the cup towards the small of your back, moving it up and down will help you find the correct and comfortable position.
Rotate the cup to check that it has fully opened and doesn’t leak. Your cervix may move during menstruation, so inserting the cup requires practice and knowledge of your own anatomy.

How to Use your Lunette Cup
Check that the air holes at the top of your cup are open. Wash your hands.
Wash your Lunette with Feelbetter Cup Cleanser and rinse it carefully.
Fold + Hold
Get comfy: you can insert the cup while sitting, standing or squatting. Spreading your legs will help with a successful and comfortable insertion. Relax.
Fold the cup in on itself to make flat, then in half to form a C shape.
Keep it rolled up and guide it rim first into the vagina. To check that the cup has fully opened, slide a clean finger up to the cup bottom and feel it – it should be round. Lunette can be used any time in your menstrual cycle, from heavy to light flow days.
Wear + learn
Lunette is emptied about 2–4 times a day, can be used for up to 8 hours, also overnight. The measuring lines on the cup help monitor your flow and easily learn your rhythm.
Remove + empty
Wash your hands and relax your muscles. Grasp the bottom of the cup. To break seal, squeeze the bottom of the cup.
Be sure not to pull it out by holding the stem alone. Tip contents into the toilet. Rinse & Reuse.
Clean + sanitize
Lunette should be cleaned before and after your cycle, and after emptying. To avoid odor and discoloration, rinse first in cold water, and then wash with hot water and Lunette Feelbetter Cup Cleanser designed for silicone cups. You may also wish to submerge in boiling water before and after your cycle and Luxury Moon recommends this for younger folk who are starting out with cups just to be on the safe side.
