The Luna cup is a reusable menstrual cup worn internally just as you would a tampon, the difference being that it collects menstrual flow instead of absorbing it. It forms a seal with the vagina wall and the flow is collected in the cup. It is made from soft durable Hypo-allergenic Medical Grade Silicone (SGS/ROHS/FDA and ISO Certified) and is a healthy and environmentally friendly alternative to tampons and pads. Lunacups are non-absorbent so they can be left in place for up to 12 hours with no risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome. It is then simply removed, emptied into the toilet, rinsed with water, or wiped out with toilet paper and then reinserted. On heavier days, you may want to empty it more than twice, it is your choice, as long as you do not go longer than 12 hours without cleaning it. In between periods you should sterilize the cup by boiling it in water for 3 minutes or rinsing it in a sterilizing product like bleach. Lunacups is easy to insert and remove.
