Lune GroupMenstrual Cup Lunette Selene (size 1)
The Lunette Selene menstrual cup, sometimes also called period cup, is an innovative menstruation barrier made in Finland. It is an easy-to-use, safe and sanitary alternative to disposable sanitary napkins and tampons. By using the menstrual cup, you protect the environment, save money and can enjoy peace of mind.
The cup is inserted in the vagina where it is kept in place by a vacuum and the vaginal muscles. By its shape and flexibility, it prevents leaks and protects against odours. On average you will need to empty the cup 2-4 times per 24 hours. After emptying, wash the cup carefully with water and mild soap. Alternatively you can boil the cup briefly in plenty of water.
Size 1 is usually recommended for girls and young women who have never given birth.
Size 2 is recommended for women above 30 and for those who have already given birth.
