Being a female has irreplaceable advantages like intuition, ability to give life and our maternal instincts to name a few. However, on the other hand, females also have unique capabilities that aren’t so glamorous such as menstrual cycles and childbirth. This brings us to the discussion of menstrual cycles and associated complications like cramps and sanitary protection solutions. Because this is a never ending natural process of life as a female; companies and inventors are always trying to create new products and procedures to deal with periods, associated sanitary challenges and pain. Producers of the Lunette Cup believe it’s the “future” method for feminine protection and critiques who have used the product disagree strongly for a bevy of reasons.
The Lunette cup is said to be very user-friendly, odorless, bio-friendly, reusable and a tracking method for females with unpredictable periods. With all these positive features, one would think the Lunette Cup would be a females dream, but this is not necessarily the case with Niki McGloster (Niki). “I must admit that when I first got my hands on the clear, reusable medical-grade Lunette cup, I had pretty high expectations for it I had no idea the bloody chaos that awaited me, though. First of all, it leaks. And it didn’t just happen after my first time using it. I’ve used the menstrual cup for a few periods now, and every time, a panty liner is completely necessary. However, the real fun didn’t begin until I had to dump the discharge. The suction, which is great for when you want the cup to stay in place, becomes a complete nightmare. You’ve basically got to be Brienne of Tarth to get the damn thing out. It was like a bloody massacre trying to wiggle a finger (and a nail extension might I add) between the cup and my cooch, for lack of a better term,” according to Niki McGloster of Madam Noire.
In essence, the creators behind the Lunette Cup were simply trying to find another effective solution for feminine protection in an effort to eliminate sanitary napkins and pads. The decision is still out as to whether or not this innovative cup will be a better solution over traditional methods. As shown through Niki’s review, there are flaws and uneasiness in using the cup that was supposed to be eradicated. Ultimately, this is one of those things that every female has to try for themselves. EGL wants to hear the pro’s and con’s from our lady’s after using the Lunette Cup.
