Menstrual Cup Size Guide:
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. The appropriate size of Lunette Menstrual Cup size can depend on a few factors, please read the below cup size guide to find the right size for you according to your body and flow!
Flow: Lighter flow? Size 1 might be for you. Heavier flow? Give size 2 a go!
Age: For teens and young users, the smaller size 1 makes for easier ins and outs.
Pregnancy: For our Mums out there, you can use both sizes. Pregnancy changes a few things down there, so firstly take into account your new cervix position (if it's low use a size 1), and secondly your new flow volume post-birth.
Cervix: If you have a low-sitting cervix, try the shorter size 1 for a better fit.
Lifestyle: If you're a fitness goddess with strong vaginal muscles, consider using size 1.
Bladder: Sensitive bladder? The softer size 1 might be a match made in heaven for you.
How does the menstrual cup differ from the tampon?
Both are internal menstrual protection. A menstrual cup collects the blood and the tampon absorbs it. A tampon can be used only once whereas a menstrual cup can be used for many years.
The absorbing capacity of a tampon is given in gram and the capacity of the menstrual cup in millilitres. One ml of menstrual blood is comparable with a gramme, so the capacity of tampons and menstrual cups are comparable. The capacity of the Lunette menstrual cup is 25 ml (size 1) and 30 ml (size 2). The absorbing capacity of a tampon is 6-18 g.
How do I know if my flow is heavy or light?
The dividing line between normal and heavy flow is 80 ml during your periods.
Lunette Size 1:
Spotting: A drop or two of blood, not even requiring a sanitary pad though you may prefer to use one.
Very light bleeding: Needing to change a low-absorbency tampon or pad one or two times per day, though you may prefer to change them more frequently.
Light bleeding: Needing to change a low or regular absorbency tampon or pad two or three times per day, though you may prefer to change more frequently.
Lunette Size 2:
Moderate bleeding: Changing normal absorbency pad or tampon every three to four hours.
Heavy bleeding: Needing to change a high-absorbency tampon or pad every three to four hours, though you may prefer to change more frequently.
Very heavy bleeding or Gushing: Protection hardly works at all. You would need to change the highest absorbency tampon or pad every hour or two.
