FAQs

Lunette Period Cup

A period cup can be used with an iud

Yes you can. Below are 6 tips from Lunette to make sure your contraceptive and period power duo work harmoniously together.

  1. It’s important you check the length of the string of your IUD. Also, that the device can move slightly. Be sure to check it regularly and ask your doctor if you’re unsure.
  2. When using a menstrual cup the string ideally sits above or inside of the cup. You can double check this after inserting your menstrual cup by running your finger around the edge and making sure you can’t feel the string.
  3. Your menstrual cup forms a slight suction on the walls of the vagina (which is how it sits nice, snug, and leak-free!). Lunette menstrual cups are designed to be super smooth with a good softness so it shouldn’t pinch your IUD string.
  4. If the string is too long you can also ask your doctor to shorten it a bit for you.
  5. Another thing to be a little more careful of is how you remove your menstrual cup if you do have an IUD. Since the menstrual cup creates that little bit of suction, you don’t want to forcefully remove it and accidentally tug on the IUD string (generally we advise no forceful movements around that area anyway!).
    As this study shows, there isn’t scientific proof that tampons or menstrual cups could increase early IUD expulsion rates.
    Whether you use an IUD or not, but especially if you do, it’s important to break the seal of the cup as you are removing it which removes the suction effect.
    Simply squeeze the base of the cup as you are pulling it out to break the seal.
    For more information on inserting and removing your menstrual cup read our article ‘How to use’.
  6. Generally it’s good to wait a couple of weeks after getting your IUD inserted to start using a menstrual cup. The risks of difficulties are the highest right at the start and it’s good to give yourself time.
    We always recommend having a chat with your doctor too so they can keep you advised and also possibly recommend shortening the IUD string length for you.

No. It is physically impossible for your period cup to mover further up than your cervix. See the pictures and continue reading for tips how to remove the cup.

Taking out your cup
Get comfortable, relax, sit down on the toilet or squat down and do a ‘poop-flex’ (tip from the video by Sarah Tran linked below, it works). Try it out and you will see the cup comes down to the point where you can grab the bottom easily with your fingers. A lot of people, over time, cut the stem shorter and finally cut it off entirely, because the stem may be uncomfortable. So, then you just grip the bottom of the cup itself which is ribbed for easy grip. For more tips see the videos below.

Here are some tips to prevent leaking.
You can also watch the more elaborate YouTube videos linked below.

  • Insert the cup part of the way, then twist. Next, check with your fingers around the rim to ensure there are no folds. Then, push it up from the bottom of the cup.
  • Ensure the little holes in the cup are always unclogged. Wash them out and blow in them.

There are several techniques you can use, hereby referred to as ‘folds’. A lot of people find the punch down fold and the seven fold the easiest, especially at the start, because it makes the front the smallest. Please see below for the different techniques.
