How does the Me Luna® work?
The Me Luna® is a small, pliable, soft cup that is inserted in the vagina to collect the menstrual flow and is effortlessly and securely kept in place by the pelvic muscles. After a few hours you simply remove the cup and empty it, then rinse and reinsert it. Unlike tampons and sanitary towels, the menstrual cup does not absorb the fluid, it collects it in the cup.
- To insert the cup, simply fold the Me Luna® using your preferred method.
- Hold the Me Luna® firmly folded and insert it, with the folded side first, into the vagina. You will quickly find out by trial and error what optimal positioning of the Me Luna® is for you. Some women prefer to place it close to the cervix, while others prefer it to sit closer to the vaginal entrance.
- Usually it is sufficient to empty your Me Luna® 3 to 4 times a day. Since the menstrual flow varies from woman to woman and also during the cycle, the frequency in which you need to empty the cup will also vary.
- To remove the Me Luna®, put yourself in a comfortable position, preferably a squatting position, then relax and carefully remove the Me Luna® by gently pulling the handle on the bottom of the cup. At the same time, use your pelvic floor muscles to push the cup down and out. Turning the Me Luna® can also be helpful.
