Re: Lunette cup

As long as you can't feel it, it should be in correctly

Re: Lunette cup

I used a pantiliner during my first cycle with a cup. I didn't leak, but it was just in case.

Re: Lunette cup

After you insert the cup, try twisting it around. It should twist easily and smoothly. You can also run your finger around the outside of the cup - the cup should be round with no dents in it. If the cup is not in the right spot covering the cervix, you might be able to feel it when you run your finger around as well (depending on where your cervix is).

Re: Lunette cup

when you push it in go more straight back instead of up and that helps I find.
usually when it goes right past the pubic bone I believe, it kind of pops open.
I have trouble with the cup collapsing in on one side pretty frequently now. (If feels round and open and then on one little part its sunken in on itself if that makes sense). I just push out a little and twist the cup around. You may even have to reinsert.
Overall, the cup should feel round and open- you will usually be able to feel this towards the middle or lower portion of the cup as well. Hope this helps!

I have a really low cervix and so I have to cut off the stem. I find it's difficult to rotate it to make sure it's open without any stem (although not impossible) and when I run my finger around it, I seem have a flat spot in my body that always makes the cup feel like its collapsed. Lol - if that makes any sense.

I have learned SO much about vaginas since getting a cup. Anyways....

But I do try to just stick my finger up and feel all around to make sure. Once you've felt it collapsed a few times, it's easier to recognize when it's not. My Lunette 1 collapsed constantly, but my 2 doesn't ever seem to collapse.

Re: Lunette cup

I always have a hard time getting mine to open up properly when fully inside, so what I do is pull it so just the rim is inside and rotate it, and then it opens up fully, and the push it back in.

I got a Lunette for my sister on sale and it was all I could do to not try it. I have a few other brands and just love menstrual cups!
