Lunette Cup

We know your perfect menstrual cup based on 9 questions!

Combining our extensive menstrual cup knowledge and our infamous Menstrual Cup Comparison Chart we have created a quick quiz that will point you to the right menstrual cup for your body, age, history, activity level, and more!

We invite you to take this quiz, even if you’re a cup user but especially if you aren’t!  We were sure to include questions that address pain points that many cuppers complain about in the hopes that the answers will lead you to a better cup if you’re in need.

Before you take the quiz please keep a few things in mind:

1.  We are NOT doctors.  We have many years of experience as cup users and we have spent many hours talking with other cup users and we have learned from their experiences.

2.  Answer questions based on your average – not doing so will cause your answers to be less accurate, resulting in a less than perfect cup. Keep in mind that It’s not abnormal to empty your cup more often on heavier days.

3.  We can help!  If you take the quiz and only receive a suggestion for a cup you use/have used and didn’t love send us a message or ask in our Facebook group! We have a lot of tricks up our sleeves — some we even use ourselves to make our own cups leakproof, and would love to help you make your cup work.

We are open to suggestions on future edits based on your experience.  Please email us admin@putacupinit.com.

This is a passion project that we hope will help thousands find their ideal menstrual cup to make the switch successfully from Day 1 or improve their current cup experience.  We have used affiliate links in our quiz so if you purchase one we will receive a small percentage, so thank you!Take our Put a Cup In It quiz to figure out what menstrual cup is best suited for your age, activity level, and build.

    Okay, so I got Lunette size 2 or Lena Large. LOVE my Lunette! I’m curious about the Lena. It looks very similar to my Sckoon. Can you compare them for me?

      Jenny, those were the 2 cups that were recommended to me. I have now tried both and I personally like the Lunette better. It’s more flexible, so it’s easier to fold and keep the fold while inserting. With the LENA, I was always “aware” that it was in, whereas w the Lunette hat was definitely not the case. Neither of them leaked. I also didn’t notice a difference in how well they captured my menstrual flow. (I’m a heavy flow throughput my entire cycle.) Hope I helped some.

    When you ask about incontinence, does it apply to bladder prolapse? I have no incontinence, but have all types of prolapse.

    Reply
    • Vaginista Amanda

      We ask this to help determine if a softer cup is needed to prevent further pressing on the bladder to cause discomfort, the feeling of needing to pee, etc. Any type of prolapse can change the way a cup will fit. You may want to go with a cup that is a bit on the shorter side depending on your other answers.

    I currently use the diva cup size 2 (have had two babies) but when inserted and I feel the urge to pee, I cannot go, I have to remove the cup. Do I need to try a different kind? I have tried repositioning it but it doesn’t stay when I try to move it down. I love using a cup because I have super heavy periods that last seven days and it’s been a life changer! Help?!

      Not sure if this comment is timely because you saw our video or not BUT we JUST posted a new video about this issue. Usually that blockage or slight blockage of the urethra can be helped by using a softer cup. Before you buy one though, try flipping the DivaCup inside out first and see if that helps. Here’s the video and post for more guidance and advice: http://putacupinit.com/peeing-with-a-menstrual-cup/

    I’ve tried a menstrual cup before and I’m under the age of 18, but in one of the questions it was bout the experience on the cup and I don’t know if it counts a lot on that question, but I couldn’t even get my cup in it was an Eva Cup, I swear that cup made me cry from being so stressed out because I had the smaller size and I couldn’t use it. But , Is the Lunette like it at all? I think the Eva cup was a firm cup so is the Lunette firm or soft? I mean like the Model 1. Also Can someone give me tips on how to insert it Like folds for teens?

    • Sara

      This is the fold I use, just try to relax while you’re inserting it. If you are tense and nervous it will be harder and uncomfortable to insert. I’d also suggest getting it wet so it slides in more easily. Also once it is inside, make sure you relax all of your muscles fully and push it up a bit higher, that’ll make sure it’s in a good position. Best of luck! Watch some videos on YouTube of women folding it and different tips.

      The 7-fold is the best! It makes it so easy to insert a cup. When I got my first (and perfect-for-me) cup, a Lunette model 1, I had trouble with the suggested C-/U-fold. But I did some research on different folds and found that the 7 fold worked for me. Lunette even has a video of some different types of folds to try on YouTube. The Lunette is medium firmness I think and the lip isn’t that much stiffer than the rest of the cup. A stiffer lip helps your cup to open inside.

      I also recommend doing some kegel exercises. They are really helpful in being able to push down your cup if you don’t want to reach inside as well as being able to relax your muscles down there so insertion is easier.

      Best of luck to you! My menstrual cup was a life changer.

      I’m a 1st time user. I’m also planning to introduce my teenage daughters to the menstrual cup after I tried it for a full cycle. One of the cups I tried was the Lunette. (Mine is a size 2, but I don’t think that changes the firmness of the cup.) I personally think the Lunette is more on the softer/more flexible side, (I’m comparing it to a LENA.) I see that there have been others suggesting different folds. I’m finding the 7 fold works amazing with the Lunette cup. Hope I helped a little.

    The “Inside Stuff” question doesn’t have enough answers. I HAVE checked, but my cervix is all over the place, not particularly dependent on where I am in my cycle.

    I love my sckooncup! Even though I have a heavy flow, I would not prefer a large or size 2 like they suggested because I don’t like the pressure on my bladder/bowels, this was a fun quiz though 🙂

      Heather, I’m not sure if tour question got answered or not, but I thought I’d go ahead and answer. Once you’ve selected the answers that fit you to the question, for example #4, there will be a button saying “submit” by one of the choices you made. Select that and you should move on to the next question. Hope this helped.

    Hey! I’m 19 years old, with regular flow, bit heavy the first 3 days. I’ve never used tampons, only pads. I exercise frequently, swim, and do martial arts. The quiz recommended me Size 2 Lena Cup. I’m a bit sceptical because I’ve heard size 2 is recommended for women that’ve given birth. I’ve never given birth. Is it the right size.

    So I’m stuck with my diva cup size 2 right now. It was awesome first 2-3 cycles but I’m about 6ish cycles in and I’m having such a hard time getting a seal. It’s ok the first two lighter days of my cycle and the last two, but the 3 heavy days are hard to get the seal and or to get it to open completely. What am I doing wrong? Is there any way to make this work? Took the quiz just now and it said Lunette 2 or Lena large. Can’t buy Lunette here in Canada ( just did a quick search, and I mean in stores. Not a fan of online shopping just getting)

I’m still having leaking problems. Myluna said that it seems like I need a larger cup. Ur quiz suggested diva 2 or Lena 2. Do u think these are a good suggestion? I’m starting to get very frustrated with the results. The cups open. No problems with insertion. Just leaking. Thanks for ur help.

    Hi, I’m 16 and I really want to try a mensrual cup. I’m not sure which cup to get because sometimes my cervix is low and sometimes my cervix is average. I don’t want to get a cup for a low cervix and then it goes up too far because my cervix has gone up. What mensrual cup should I get ?

    For many years I always used natural sea sponges & loved them. I tried cups, but they tended to pop open whenever I moved a certain way! I had no trouble using sponges, even right after birth! I cut them into different sizes, to match my flow, & sewed dental floss on for retrieval. Much cheaper than cups too!

    Hi, thanks for putting this lovely quiz together. I only have one tiny concern though… I took this quiz a few days ago and it recommended the Lunette model 1 or Diva model 1 as an alternative. I looked at the comparison chart and thought that I might be able to work with Sckoon instead (I wanted it at first cuz the Youtuber who got me into thinking about cups recommended it), but I decided to sleep on it. A few days later, I retook the quiz and it still recommended the Lunette as my top choice and I found very good reviews on it, so I ordered the Lunette model 1. But I took this quiz again today just for fun and suddenly it’s recommending me Meluna or other size 1s in other brands *with the exception of Diva model 1* so that kinda makes me concerned about my decision to go with Lunette. I retook the quiz just in case I clicked something wrong but the results are still Meluna and I honestly don’t know what I did wrong. Could you please help me out? Thank you 🙂

      Hi Sofia, we have actually be making small tweaks to the quiz and the results it gives based on a number of things (including feedback from dozens of people who have taken the quiz that are experience cup users) so it looks like you took before and after those changes. We still stand behind the previous results and Lunette is a wonderful cup, it’s actually the one I have used the most with best results. If you’d like you can email admin@putacupinit.com with a few more details so that we can help. We like the Lunette because it’s shorter than the Diva Cup. You may have answered questions that lead us to think you have a very low cervix which is why you got Meluna this time around.

    On a Mac using Chrome and the page does not load correctly. After number three pointer/rule/suggestion/whatever there is a big white space where I am sure for others there is something to click which loads the quiz. It would be helpful to let people know which browsers will/will not work, maybe add a number four with a warning. Suggestions that I download another browser are not helpful since even a child could figure that out, I use the browser I feel safe using and use I made sure everything is up to date. I guess your quiz is not for me. Glad others find it helpful.

    I was so excited to do this quiz, and I bought (and tried) a Super Jennie as my recommended cup. I’d used a Diva Cup for years, but having experienced changes since I started (heavier periods since going off the pill, more sensitive after surgery following ectopic pregnancy), I thought this would be a good opportunity to try out a new cup.
    Unfortunately, my experience with the Super Jennie is even worse – difficult to get it to pop open and seal properly upon insertion, and *really* difficult to reach and to remove! I actually think the softness of the cup might be the challenge – comfy while wearing it, but tricky getting it in and out. When I retook the quiz, though, it recommended it to me again… help! Any other advice?

    I’ve tried my Pinkcup (South African brand) for about 4 cycles now and it’s leaking every single time! Its not a lot, but its still leaking. Its so frustrating because I just want it to work. Im 24 years old and a very active scuba diver. I’ve 0 children. I’ve discovered that I have a normal cervix (maybe a little high cervix as I’m able to touch it with a little bit of effort). It open properly (I make sure of this) and I’ve inserted it on every angle possible. My flow is normal. Please please please help…

    After I had a baby, I wasn’t loving my size 2 divacup like I loved my size 1. This year suggested a Lena Cup and I was stoked. They have the pretty turquoise cup I’ve been wanting! Just finished my first day with Lena and I am in love! Fits like a glove and none of the issues I was having with the Diva. Thank you for the awesome quiz!

    Is there a good recommendation for someone who has uterine fibroids that are outside of the uterus? I’ve been looking around, and there’s very little info out there for anyone with this condition. The most I have seen is an acknowledgement that fibroids within the uterus may cause heavier flow (true); but nothing mentioned out the kind that grow outside the uterus. These can press on the wall of the vagina or on other organs, which I would think might impact cup comfort?

    Hi! I took your quiz and it suggested I use either the Lena sensitive or the si-bel large. I am currently a cup user and will have to still wear a panty liner even though my cup is not full I still get leaking. Your quiz did not ask any questions about this, so I wanted to make sure one of these cups would fix the problem. Thank you for your time. Laura

    • Karen

      Laura, do you have a guess as to why you’re leaking? It took me asking my doctor questions regarding where my cervix is, etc. I had been using the cup for months prior to seeing my doctor. I thought I had the right placement & a good seal. Like you, I also had leakage even when the cup wasn’t full. (Sometimes it wasn’t even close to being full.) I found out that not only was my cervix very high, but it also tilted at a certain angle. (After 25+ years of paps, etc. & having children, not a single doctor has ever told me this.) Once I heard this, I realized that the cup wasn’t sealed at all with the cervix, it was just sort of sitting in my canal. It was working fine for the most part with the exception of the leaks. Once I figured out where my cervix is and the angle it tilted, I have had zero leaks. So my suggestion would be to to ask your doctor the next time you have a pap where your cervix is and if it’s tilted, etc.

    • roisindubh211

      I have a similar problem & I think its because my cervix sits farther inside the cup and there is less room than their should be. Not sure how to solve it but that may be another reason for the leaking.

    I’ve been trying to use menstrual cups off and on for a year now and can’t seem to find one that doesn’t leak. The quiz suggested a Diva Cup, Lena, and Super Jenny (all large/size 2) and I while I’m certain that the cup is opening, they all leak, A LOT. I’ve never actually seen anything accumulate in the cup, just along the sides. (i’m over 35, baby via c-section, high cervix, regular/medium flow, no allergies). I’ve read all the my cup is leaking tips I can find and can’t find a solution. Help!

I took the quiz & bought the cup they suggested was best for me, and it was seriously the best decision I’ve made! I absolutely love it and will never go back to tampons! Don’t be intimidated by the thought of trying something that’s different (and weird for some). I am completely comfortable with my body so it was no big deal to me to have to insert & take it out to empty. I truly recommend taking the quiz, and taking the plunge of buying one! Love my cup.
