How to know when your Cup is full! 

Us ladies go through a lot without having to worry about spillages or mess during our periods.  

Menstrual cups are pure gold when it comes to that time of the month, BUT how do you know when your cup is full and needs emptying?  

Here are five tricks so you never have an uh oh moment with your cup.  

1. Keep track of time: When using a menstrual cup, it's important to empty it every 6-8 hours, depending on your flow. Keeping track of the time when you insert the cup can help you determine when it's time to empty it.

2. Check the capacity of your cup: Different menstrual cups have different capacities, and it's important to choose a cup that can hold enough fluid for your flow. Check the capacity of your cup and compare it to the amount of menstrual fluid you usually experience. 

3. Monitor the feeling: When the menstrual cup is starting to fill up, you may feel a slight pressure or discomfort. It's important to listen to your body and empty the cup before it becomes too full. 

4. Check for leaks: If you start to experience leaks, it may be a sign that your cup is full or not positioned correctly. Check your cup and adjust it as needed. 

5. Use some Love Luna underwear as a back-up in case a leak does happen. Double your protection!  

Practice makes perfect! It can take some time to get used to using a menstrual cup, and learning when your cup is full is part of the process. With practice, you'll become more familiar with your body and your flow, and you'll be able to anticipate when it's time to empty your cup
