Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude, family, and, of course, a lavish feast that lasts all day. However, if you're on your period, the holiday can be less than comfortable. That's where Lummacups, a leading menstrual disc, come into play, ensuring you can indulge in the celebrations without worrying about leaks or discomfort. This post will guide you on how to insert a menstrual disc and explain why a reusable disc is your best companion for the Thanksgiving feast.

Inserting Your Menstrual Disc

Inserting a menstrual disc may seem daunting, but with Lummacups, it's as simple as pie. Here's a step-by-step guide to ensure your disc is in place so you can focus on the more important parts of your day: 

  1. Wash Your Hands: Always start with clean hands to prevent introducing bacteria to your vaginal area.
  2. Fold and Hold: Pinch the sides of the Lumma disc together to fold it in half, holding it in a way that's comfortable for you.
  3. Insert: With one leg elevated or in a squatting position, gently slide the disc into your vaginal canal, aiming it back and down towards the tailbone.
  4. Ensure Comfort: The disc should tuck neatly behind your pubic bone. You shouldn't feel it if it's inserted correctly – similar to setting the table just right, it should fit in place seamlessly.
  5. Check: Feel around the base to ensure it is fully opened. If you feel any folds or discomfort, gently adjust until it feels right.


The Benefits of a Reusable Disc During Thanksgiving

Menstrual discs are not only practical but also an eco-friendly solution to your period care. Here are some reasons why Lumma cups make your holiday more enjoyable: 

  • Long-lasting Wear: Lumma cups can be worn for up to 12 hours, meaning you can get through the entire feast without needing a bathroom break for changes.
  • Less Bulky: Unlike traditional menstrual products, a disc lies flat and can’t be felt when correctly inserted, allowing you to move freely, whether you're basting the turkey or playing touch football.
  • Leak-proof Confidence: Menstrual discs are designed for a perfect fit, so you can laugh, cough, or sneeze without fear of leaks.
  • Eco-Friendly: As a reusable disc, Lumma cups reduce waste, making your Thanksgiving green in more ways than one.
  • Inclusive Size Range: Lumma offers a variety of sizes to fit every body type, ensuring everyone has a comfortable fit.


Thanksgiving should be about comfort, joy, and giving thanks, not about period worries. With Lumma cups, you can enjoy the holiday to the fullest. They're easy to insert, comfortable to wear, and environmentally friendly. Now that you know how to insert a menstrual disc, you're all set for a worry-free holiday. 

As you sit down to give thanks this year, you can be grateful for the freedom and comfort that Lumma cups bring to your celebration. Here's to a comfortable, carefree Thanksgiving!
