Use of La Cup Luneale
Is La Cup Luneale easy to use?
As with lenses, there is a variable grip time from one to the other.
That said, the cup is adopted by 91% of users after 2 cycles of use.
So train outside of your period, and to reassure yourself, you can wear a panty liner during your first cycles with your new La Cup Luneale.
How. long can I keep my menstrual cup in ?
Can I sleep with a menstrual cup ?
Can I play sports with a menstrual cup?
La Cup Luneale will not bother you. Just think of emptying it before your sporting activity to be completely serene, and to have a maximum capacity (because if you do sport intensively, the contractions of the perineum can slightly reduce its capacity)
And at the beach or at the pool, it’s so much more pleasant when your protection doesn’t get wet …
Should I remove my menstrual cup to go to the WC?
There is very little risk that La Cup Luneale will “fall” while you go to the water closets (no more than with a tampon).
If this is the case, we advise you to consult a competent health professional – gynecologist, midwife, physiotherapist – , as it is possible that your perineum is too loose (and perineum is very important)
There is also no risk that the string will get throated with urine, since there is no string …
Remember that the urine comes out of the urethra, and periods of the vagina, as you can see in our article on anatomy.
Can I have sex while wearing a menstrual cup?
Can my menstrual cup go up in my body?
At the end of the vagina is the cervix, which measures between 3mm in women who have not had a child and up to 25 mm in mothers with large families. We explain all this in detail in our article on anatomy.
It is therefore absolutely impossible for La Cup to go beyond the vagina.

Since there is no absorption, you will not be embarrassed and your vaginal flora will be respected. But beware: here again, respect a maximum wearing time of 8 hours!
My Cup Luneale does not always unfold completely. To what is it due and how to solve it?
This is why it is essential to rotate the Cup on itself: it deploys the ring.
The body of La Cup Luneale is flexible, it can be crushed in places to best adapt to the body, unlike what happens with classic menstrual cups which must be fully deployed.

I have an allergic background, can I wear a menstrual cup?
We have also ruled out dyes, which can be allergenic (and which are useless) as well as additives.
Allergies to conventional silicones are often detected with cosmetics or bands of stockings. But the silicone used by Luneale – platinium medical silicone – is different. To date, none of our users have had an allergy to silicone from La Cup Luneale (and even some customers allergic to traditional silicones have told us that in their case, La Cup Luneale had not triggered them allergy)

Almost all allergic reactions can be ruled out, even if you know you are allergic to silicone.
I have just given birth, can I put or put my cup back for my return of diapers?

On Cuplife, we also give you some natural tips against menstrual pain!
I often get UTIs, can I use my cup?
While some rigid cups can press the bladder or urethra and make urination incomplete, the body of La Cup Luneale is flexible enough not to generate this type of discomfort.

You can also remove it before the first urine in the morning to make sure your bladder is completely empty …

In these 2 cases, wait for it to cool before using it (or pass it under cold water for a few moments)
You can also use cold sterilization tablets (as for baby bottles) according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
To go further, see our article on Cuplife: How to clean my cup effectively?
Can I use a mild soap to clean my menstrual cup?
But if you want to use a soap (or other cleaner), pay attention to its pH, which must be between 4 and 6. We wrote a article on cleaning menstrual cups with soap with pH indications of the main brands.
The safest (in our opinion) is to use a product made especially for the cup, such as La Mousse Culottée Luneale , which is cupfriendly (and natural) (and super nice).
How to clean my cup in public places?
In the absence of a sink in the toilet, several solutions:
- go to the toilet with a small bottle of water (with a sports cap, it’s even more convenient!) to rinse the cup
- use our cupfriendly wipes which are specially created for this.
- And in the extreme case and in an exceptional way, it is possible to empty the cup and wipe it with paper to rinse it then as soon as you will have access to a water point.
I will not be able to sterilize my menstrual cup before my periods, what do you recommend?
- Either you use effervescent cold sterilization tablets, which have the same effect as immersing the cup in boiling water.
- Or, exceptionally, you can wash the cup with gynecological Betadine (blue bottle). But beware, Betadine will color the cup irreversibly (but without effect on its efficacy and safety, of course)
Why don't you advise sterilizing the cup during menstruation?
The smooth surface of the Luneale Cup does not stick and the medical silicone does not allow bacterial growth.
So during menstruation, it is sufficient to rinse the cup with fresh drinking water before reintroducing it. You can also use La Mousse Culottée or, if you do not have temporary access with water, cupfriendly wipes .
My Cup is tinted, how can I restore its transparent appearance?

To unblock them, simply fill the Cup to the brim with water, place the palm of your hand flat on the upper ring to plug it and press the body: the water will come out through the holes and evacuate the blood which would have been there.
Je suis un homme et j'ai mes règles, pourquoi vous parlez toujours de "femmes " sur votre site ? Vous nous oubliez ?
Nous avons fait le choix d’écrire le plus possible en inclusif sur la nouvelle version du site car cela correspond à notre sensibilité. Mais nous avons aussi besoin de référencement, et les moteurs de recherche n’aiment pas beaucoup l’écriture inclusive.
Alors comme l’écriture inclusive permet d’utiliser la règle de la majorité, de temps en temps, on se permet d’écrire au féminin.
Cela dit, si une phrase vous choque vraiment dans sa tournure (on a essayé de les éliminer), n’hésitez pas à nous écrire pour nous le signaler.
