I switched over to a Luna Cup almost two years back and I can honestly call it one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. It took a few weeks of getting used to, but now I find it quite comfortable to use and I’m completely disgusted by the idea of disposable menstrual products. The idea of leaving them to rot in a bathroom trash really disgust me…
The instructions on the luna cup leaflet are simple and clear. I do not understand how some women have had such disastrous experiences with menstrual cups including leaking and pain. The cup has never been an inconvenience when I have been out to empty and clean it and do not find it messy at all. The Luna cup only needs to be changed approx every 10 – 12 hours. If you are going to be going out shopping or out in general for hours then simply clean the cup out before you leave and when you return home again!
I wish I’d known that this menstrual cup existed years ago. If you’re fed up with leaky tampons then consider this product.

So what are they?, reusable menstrual cups are an alternative to pads and tampons. They are unlike pads and tampons, in that they are reusable, which makes them far better for the environment and for your budget. Think of just how many pads or tampons you might use each month, perhaps 12 times or more a year, for up to 4 years!
The menstrual cup is a small bell-shaped container which is typically made from silicone. A menstrual cup is used by inserting it into the vagina and leaving it there, to collect menstrual fluids. Once it is full, you remove it to dispose of the fluids in the toilet or sink, rinse the cup and reinsert it. The cup can be worn for up to 12 hours at a time, also overnight. When the period is over, the cup should be boiled and can be reused for up to ten years. A menstrual cup is meant to be safer for your body as it does not absorb fluids or contain any unhealthy chemicals like the tampon. Menstrual cups are not for everyone, but they are also not the only reusable alternative to disposable sanitary products.
