Winter sports enthusiasts know the struggle of managing periods while hitting the slopes. The cold weather, the bulky layers, and the intense activity make traditional menstrual products less than ideal. Enter the menstrual disc, a game-changing innovation that’s revolutionizing period care for athletes and outdoor adventurers alike. Lumma cups, in particular, have emerged as a favorite, offering freedom and confidence to those who don't want their period to slow them down. Let’s dive into why the menstrual disc is the ultimate companion for winter sports enthusiasts.

The Downhill Dilemma: Periods and Winter Sports

Engaging in winter sports requires agility, comfort, and protection from the elements. Traditional period products like pads and tampons often fall short in these environments. They can shift, cause discomfort, and require frequent changes – not what you want when you’re at the top of a mountain or in the middle of a cross-country trail.

Enter the Menstrual Disc: A Solution as Reliable as Your Skis

A menstrual disc like Lumma cups is designed to fit snugly at the base of your cervix, collecting rather than absorbing menstrual flow. This means less bulk, no string, and no worries about leaks during even the most rigorous physical activity.

How to Use a Menstrual Disc on the Slopes:

  • Before you gear up, wash your hands and the disc with warm water.
  • Simply fold the Lumma cup and insert it into your vagina, pushing it back and down toward the tailbone.
  • Once it's in place, it'll stay put for up to 12 hours, ensuring that your focus remains on your winter sport, not your period.

The beauty of a reusable disc is that it’s perfect for long days out in the cold. You can set it before you head out and forget about it until you’re back in the warmth of your lodge.

Why Lumma Cups are a Winter Sport Game-Changer

  1. Long-Lasting Protection: Lumma cups offer up to 12 hours of protection, ideal for those long days on the mountain when a bathroom break is inconvenient.
  2. Comfort in Motion: With no strings attached and a flat fit against the cervix, Lumma cups allow for full range of motion – crucial when you’re carving down the slopes or gliding over the ice.
  3. Reduced Bulk: Forget about the bulky feeling of pads or the risk of tampon strings peeking out. A menstrual disc is discreet and compatible with tight-fitting thermal wear.
  4. Eco-Friendly: With a reusable disc, you’re not only doing your body a favor but also the environment. There’s no need to pack out used products from the backcountry.
