How long can I keep the menstrual cup in?

The Lunette menstrual cup can be used for up to 12 straight hours. Of course everyone is different and those with a heavier flow may need to empty their cup more often (more on that below).

WHY 12 HOURS?

The Lunette menstrual cup is made from high-quality medical grade silicone which means it safe inside of you and stays fresh too. However, no period product (or most other items for that matter!), no matter how high quality, should be kept inside your vagina for extended periods of time without checking and cleaning properly.

WHAT ABOUT IF I HAVE A HEAVY FLOW?

All of us experience different periods and there’s certainly no “one size fits all” guidance. The important thing is to get to know your own flow and adjust to what suits you.

Firstly, make sure you get the right size cup. Lunette menstrual cups come in 2 sizes, one of which is better for those who have heavier flows.

Those with a heavier flow may also need to empty their cup more frequently. If you’re new to menstrual cups try emptying it every 2 to 4 hours until you get a good sense of how full your cup gets.

CAN I KEEP MY MENSTRUAL CUP IN OVERNIGHT?

Yes! You can sleep soundly with your Lunette menstrual cup all night long.
