I just need to talk about this life changing product! The Luna cup is a menstruation cup! I wish I had this product when I first got my period. That’s how amazing it is. TMI, but when I first menstruated, my mother gave me pads. I hated them with a passion. I just hated the feeling and experienced more leaks in those. When I got to college, my roommate told me about tampons. Those were a little better but it was still a hassle carrying a handful of tampons with me wherever I went and having to change it often. Finally after having my third child and knowing I’d be getting my period again, I did some research.
On Amazon, I found many different brands of menstruation cups. I decided to go with the Luna Cups for $22.95. There are two sizes to choose from: Small and Large. It’s recommended to get the Large if you have given vaginal childbirth or a heavy menstrual flow. It also came with two different pouches to keep your cups in.
At first glance these cups may seem intimidating and scary especially since you need to put it in your body, but all I gotta say is don’t knock it till you try it. These cups are made of soft silicone. It also comes with instructions on how to clean and use your cup.
It is so easy and convenient to use! I can’t say it enough how much I am so happy to have started using these. I no longer have to worry about leaking through my clothes or having to change every several hours and can sleep through the night comfortably.
With the cup, I honestly forget I even have my period. I change my cup every 12 hours (8am and 8pm). If I’m out past 8pm, I just need to take it out, clean it, and put it back in. You may think clean up must be very messy but it really isn’t. No more carrying spare pads or tampons in my purse.
I will never go back to pads and tampons again. If you’ve been debating whether or not to try menstruation cups, I say go for it!
