FAQs

There are a number of important differences to consider between discs and cups, starting with their placement in the body. Whereas discs are inserted above the vaginal canal, cups are worn in the vaginal canal itself. As a result:

• Cups are not to be worn during sex. With discs, sex is not a problem.

• Most menstrual cups offer about 0.5 oz (20 ml) of capacity. Discs can hold up to 2 oz (60 ml).

• Cups require suction to remain in place. Discs stay put with no suction needed.

• Cups can be used for up to eight hours. Discs can be used for up to twelve.

Quite simply, you can expect a better period. Greater comfort, higher capacity, no additives and, yes, no smell. Did we mention that discs can be worn during sex? It's a game-changer.

Quite simply, you can expect a better period. Greater comfort, higher capacity, no additives and, yes, no smell. Did we mention that discs can be worn during sex? It's a game-changer.

For starters, discs and cups are sustainable and made of medical-grade silicone, without any added chemicals. The additives in tampons and pads, on the other hand, can reduce your body's natural flora, reducing the natural lubrication that protects the health of your vagina, and creating an unpleasant smell as soon as you bleed.

In addition, the average user of tampons or pads will wear about 540 every three years. In that same amount of time, you'll go through just one menstrual cup or disc. That's a lot of money and landfill space saved.

The position of the cervix can vary widely from period to period and from day to day, so the same person may need different sizes at different times. That's why we offer a "buy one, get one" deal, so you get a free cup with every cup you buy or a free disc with every disc you buy. Picking two sizes will help keep you covered through every cycle.

The process starts with finding the right size for you. To get started, see our guide here.

Unlike our competitors, our menstrual discs include a silicone string that makes the removal process simple. To remove menstrual cups, just squeeze to release the suction, then pull out. More detailed instructions can be found here.

Three years. Yes, you read that right.

No doubt. Our discs and cups are designed to handle the lightest to the heaviest flow.

Simply boil it in water for three minutes. Your disc or cup will be sterile, clean and good to go.

If you're wearing a disc, go right ahead. Since discs are worn above the vaginal canal, your partner won't even notice. Menstrual cups, on the other hand, are worn inside the vaginal canal and should not be worn during sex.

Yes and yes. Our products are so effective that swimming and workouts are no sweat. Your period should never get in the way of your health.

All insertable menstrual products carry a small risk of complications with an IUD. Anyone using an IUD should consult with their doctor to make sure that cups and discs are right for them.

Yes, menstrual discs and cups are completely safe for use following childbirth.

Yes, our products are safe for anyone who's begun to have menstrual cycles.

Aside from our ten sizes of menstrual cups, we're the only company whose discs come in three sizes, ensuring the ideal fit for every day of your cycle.

In addition, our cups feature our patented technology that allows you to grip them for easy removal. Our discs are the only ones on the market to feature a string to help with removal, not to mention three unique colorful designs. No two products are quite the same.

Our products are 100% safe for use as directed. All of our menstrual cups and discs are registered by the federal Brazilian Health Regulatory Agency as well as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Absolutely. Our products are made of reusable, medical-grade silicone, and unlike tampons and pads, they contain no harsh chemicals that can harm you and the environment. Also, our products are made to last. The average person who uses tampons or pads goes through about 540 every three years. One Lumma cup or disc lasts just as long. That's a lot of landfill space (and money) saved.
