High cervix, low cervix and your menstrual cup

What the heck is a cervix? Do you know what a cervix looks like? If you haven’t already searched Google images for it (which we highly recommend you do), we’re here to break it down for ya. During menstruation, the cervix plays a key role in this process. Knowing where your period comes from not only helps you understand your body more, but it empowers you!

 Ok, but what even is a cervix?
 It’s basically the “neck” of the uterus. Wait...my uterus has a neck….? Sort of. It’s a narrow neck-like passage that lies below the uterus and above the vagina....

Four Period Activists You’ll Want To Be Bffs With

Although 2015 was the year of the period, we think EVERY year should be a time to bring menstruation to the public eye. Not only is it important to break the period taboo, but it’s crucial to be able to talk about menstruation without feeling uncomfortable, judgmental, or shameful.  Unfortunately there are some people who still hide tampons under their sleeves, skip fun activities due to their periods, and don’t know how to talk about menstruation without expressing some awkwardness. We’ve put together a list of four period activists who have inspired the world in some way with their amazing...

PSA: Not All Dads Are Scared Of Period Talk

Does your dad look at his phone or turn his head (ever so slyly) when a tampon or pad commercial comes on? Is there an elephant in the room when you’re sitting at the kitchen table with a heating pad on your lap and a tub of ice cream in front of you? Why are we so afraid to talk to our dads (or father figures) about periods? The answer is simple: they don’t get periods (physically) so they just can't relate. BUT...speaking from personal experience, it’s important to be open with your dad about your period. It is a...

How To Talk About Menstrual Cups When Someone Just Doesn't Get It!

Ever since I started blogging for Lunette I catch myself *strongly* voicing my opinions about taboo topics such as menstruation, sex, and women’s health issues. I mean c’mon, it’s kind of hard not to, especially in this controversial time surrounding overall human rights issues! Don’t get me wrong, not everyone agrees or considers these topics as important as I would like them to, but that’s okay! As long as everyone keeps an open mind, the worst that can happen is an “unfollow” on my social media channels (haha!), or a “this is so weird” comment. So, with that being said,...

New Video: The Power Within

Today we’re releasing our new video, a story we’re excited to share and the kind we would like to see more of, both on camera and in the real world. We’re really passionate about the products we make (like truly, madly, deeply kind of passionate) but products only get us so far. It’s the bigger picture stuff, the ideas behind the products, the stories we tell ourselves in our day to day that really make a difference. Products don’t empower you. We believe you already have the power right there within, but that access to having informed choices, sharing big...

Blood cups and tea parties anyone? Should you talk with your child about periods and sex?

“Mama I got your blood cup!!”My six year old knows I just got my period and is holding up my yellow pouch with my trusty Lunette menstrual cup inside. She calls it a "blood cup." I am the type of mom that is very open about all things relating to the body. I pee in front of her, and I even dump my menstrual cup blood in front of her (I don’t know do other parents get privacy in the bathroom? I don’t.) When she says “ewww” I say, yeah, but remember, it’s natural, and that’s how come I was...

Menstrual cups and toxic shock syndrome: what you need to know.

The short version: Just like tampons, your menstrual cup has no increased risk of TSS (toxic shock syndrome). As with any period care product the most important thing is to keep it clean, don’t leave it in too long and use a trusted brand. The truth behind the science: Every so often a clickbait article headline graces our newsfeeds which admittedly can be difficult to ignore. Recently a French study has been quoted on menstrual cups having increased risk of TSS. A big claim right? Menstrual cups have been a trusted period care product for decades. In fact, globally only...
