Today I'm writing you about my first try with a menstrual cup: Me Luna Sport (size M).
Why did I choose to buy a menstrual cup?
Why did I choose Me Luna?
-Price: 15.90 euro excluded shipping
The price of the menstrual cup is very convenient if considering the years of use that it can bear! Great saving compared to tampons and sanitary pads.
-Materials: All Me Luna® cups are made in Germany and consist of medical compliant thermoplastic elastomers (TPE). The cups are also made of a phthalate-, PVC-, silicone- and latex-free material.
-Different choices in color, length, size, firmness, handle:
With MeLuna you are spoiled by choices as for colors, length, size, firmness and handles
About my choice: MeLuna Sport Size M
-Color I chose: gold/glittery
-Handle I chose: ball
Who is Me Luna® Sport suitable for?
Me Luna® Sport was initially developed specifically for women with especially strong pelvic floor muscles and who are physically active. But this cup also offers clear benefits for women who are not into sport.
Especially recommended for:
- women whose athletic fitness is above average, or who have well-toned pelvic floor muscles.
-Women practicing yoga, horse riding, pilates, weight training, kegel exercises, pole dancing, brazilian jiu jitsu (stronger pelvic floor muscles than average)
-Women under 25 and have not given birth (generally having strong pelvic floor muscles)
-Any woman with normal muscle tone who likes a menstrual cup to unfold easily and quickly.
Receiving the menstrual cup:
What's inside and size comparison:
First use and before the first use at each menstruation: sterilize for 2-3 minutes in boiling water or in microwave (inside a container with water)
During usage: rinse it under running water, or wipe it with toilet paper or paper towels. After draining and cleaning, it can be placed inside again.
After the end of menstruation: thoroughly clean and sterilize. Store in the supplied microfibre bag or any well ventilated container.
How to insert:
Simply fold and then insert the cup into the vagina like a tampon, where it will then unfold itself and collect the menstrual flow.
First menstrual cycle with MeLuna Sport: Opinion
My initial doubts about using a menstrual cup were the following:
The menstrual cup was easy to sterilize, quick and easy in 2 minutes.
The C-fold in order to insert the cup was easy since the first try and thanks to the firmness of the sport cup, it was also easy to insert and unfold inside.
I found more difficult initially to remove the cup. If I could change something I would opt for a stem hold for a first cup. It became easier and easier to remove the cup anyway!
Between each emptying the cup was very easy to clean because of its material!
The cup itself NEVER leaked during sport and by night and felt way more comfortable than using a tampon that dries up your vaginal area.
All things considered, I will never regret having started using MeLuna menstrual cup and I highly recommend it to all women.
Save money, choose a product that finally meets women different needs and comforts, which also protects our health!
