As the weather warms up, many of us eagerly anticipate outdoor activities, vacations, and basking in the sun. However, managing periods during this season can be challenging. Fortunately, Lumma’s reusable menstrual discs provide a game-changing solution that lets you enjoy every moment without interruption.

Understanding Reusable Menstrual Discs

Reusable menstrual discs, like those made from medical-grade silicone by Lumma, fit snugly at the base of your cervix, collecting menstrual fluid instead of absorbing it. This design brings numerous benefits over traditional menstrual products.

Menstrual Discs vs Tampons:

  1. Longer Wear Time: Unlike tampons, which need to be changed every 4-8 hours, Lumma’s reusable menstrual discs can be worn for up to 12 hours. This extended wear time is ideal for long days at the beach or adventurous excursions.
  2. No Risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS): Tampons carry a risk of TSS, a rare but serious condition. Silicone menstrual discs eliminate this risk, providing peace of mind.
  3. Higher Capacity: Menstrual discs can hold more fluid than tampons, making them suitable for heavy flow days.

Menstrual Discs vs Menstrual Cups:

  1. Ease of Insertion and Removal: Menstrual discs can be easier to insert and remove compared to cups, as they don’t require precise placement or suction.
  2. Comfort During Intimacy: One unique advantage of menstrual discs is that they can be worn during sexual intercourse, something not possible with menstrual cups or tampons.
  3. More Comfortable Fit: Some users find menstrual discs more comfortable than cups, especially during physical activities like yoga or swimming.

Finding Your Perfect Menstrual Disc Size

Choosing the right size is crucial for comfort and effectiveness. Lumma offers a variety of sizes to ensure a perfect fit for everyone. Here’s a quick guide on how to find your size:

  1. Measure Your Cervix Height: During your period, insert a clean finger into your vagina to feel for your cervix. The length of your finger that can fit before touching the cervix will determine whether you have a high, medium, or low cervix.
  2. Refer to Lumma’s Size Chart: Use the measurements to consult Lumma’s size chart on their website. This chart provides guidance on which size will work best based on your cervix height.
  3. Trial and Comfort: Sometimes, it may take trying out one or two sizes to find the perfect fit. Lumma’s customer service team is always available to assist with any sizing concerns.

How to Use Lumma Menstrual Discs

Using Lumma’s reusable menstrual discs is simple and straightforward:

  1. Wash Your Hands: Always start with clean hands to prevent infections.
  2. Fold and Insert: Pinch the disc in the middle to form a figure-eight shape. Insert the disc into your vagina, pushing it back and down toward your tailbone. The disc will then tuck behind your pubic bone.
  3. Check Placement: Make sure the disc is fully unfolded and covers the cervix. You shouldn’t feel the disc if it’s placed correctly.
  4. Remove and Clean: To remove, hook a finger under the rim of the disc and pull gently. Empty the contents into the toilet, rinse the disc with water, and reinsert. At the end of your cycle, sterilize the disc by boiling it in water for a few minutes.
