About Lena Cup

Voted as the #1 Best Beginner Cup the Lena Cup has a reputation to live up to. Thankfully it more than lives up to those claims and it's all thanks to the small details.

One of the main concerns that Lena had when designing their very own menstrual cup was the idea of "Period Poverty". In short period poverty refers to the extra cost that period products incur on our budget and how it can affect our possibilities to buy them. That's why the cost is a huge factor when it comes to the Lena Cup, and to this day it stands as one of the most affordable cups in the market.

However, the Lena Cup is about more than just its price. Its softness and flexible rim make it easy to insert and pull out, making it comfortable to wear and a great option for first-time users. Their website also offers countless tutorials on how to use the cup; as well as the proper measurements for each model. When it comes to the Lena Cup it's all about ease of use and that's what has helped it build its reputation.

    I love my Lena small sensitive cup. I am very sensitive to everything so I thought the sensitive version would be right for me. It was! I also don’t have an unusually heavy flow. I have like 1.5 heavy days and the rest I could get away with wearing a cup and not collecting much blood.

    I can’t tell you how many vacations have been ruined due to my period. Not anymore! When I wear my cup on vacation, I forget I even have my period. I actually am lazy and totally forget that I have to change my cup unless it’s been more than 8-12 hours and I forgot to change it. It has been so amazing that I am a total convert. I can’t stand the feel of pads or tampons anymore. They dried me out and were gross disposable. I left my Lena cup at home once got my period and then bought another menstrual cup at target. I still like Lena sensitive better. It does sort of occasionally make me feel like I have to pee.

    I leaked once and that’s because I didn’t change my cup after 8+ hours. This cup is awesome because I barely feel it.
    Pros
    • Soft so it’s not so firm you notice it
    • Very flexible but holds it shape. No seams that could cause irritation
    • Convenient AF
    Cons
    • It’s clear and I wish they had made it a different color

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    I love Lena!!!
    I’m a 17 years old and have always wanted a menstrual cup. When I finally saved enough money to buy a menstrual cup I went on Amazon and researched so much. Finally I found the Lena cup and to find out they have a large cup and sensitive!? I was sold I bought the cup and have never looked back. I have saved money on pads and tampons and I love my Lena cup. 10/10 would recommend to a friend.
    Pros
    • Sensitive
    • Bell shaped
    • Can’t feel a thing

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    This is a great first cup for anyone with a heavy flow. It was my first cup and its softness made it easy to navigate and insert. I didn’t have any problems for almost a year (when the bottom part of the stem broke but it was still usable!)

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    It will change your life.
    I love the Lena Cup. It takes practice and perhaps trying a couple of different fits, but it's more than worth it.

    Okay, now here's the nitty gritty.

    First, let me summarize my body type and cycle:

    - I am a virgin.
    - I am a heavy bleeder.
    - I am VERY sensitive to any pain in my lower extremities.
    - Previously, I was using extra-large tampons in conjunction with pads that were pretty much diapers.

    Now, onto the Lena Cup.
    I started out using the Lena cup small. The first time I tried to take it out...I didn't know what I was doing, and I yanked on the stem to drag it out. When I say I yelped, I YELPED. I howled. I gasped for air like a fish out of water. You know that feeling you get when you hit your tailbone just right? Yeah. That's what it was. I almost gave up after that, but then I thought, there's got to be a reason so many women love this thing. So I did some research.

    Come to find out, you are NOT suppose to yank on the stem. First, you need to break the cup's seal.

    Once I learned how to use it properly, it took some finagling and some time practicing inserting and removing it. To be quite honest, if you are unfamiliar with your girly goods, prepare to become bffs with them. It took me about three cycles of consistent and patient use to feel comfortable removing my cup outside my personal bathroom. I even dropped it in the toilet once (gag). I also discovered that I needed a larger cup--enter Lena Cup Large Sensitive. I wish I had started on it. It's SO flexible and SO easy to use.

    If you are even the least bit sensitive and have not had a vaginal birth, I would recommend starting on it.

    Here's the deal, the Lena Cup changed my life.

    We all know the struggle of awkwardly getting up from dinner at a restaurant and having to drag our purse along with us. Wearing tampons and pads, I had to get up and change my business every 2-3 hours. And don't even get me started on accidentally dropping tampons in public. I'm clumsy as heck, and this was inevitable for me.

    And the smell. GAG ME. You KNOW what I'm talking about.

    With the Lena Cup, all of those struggles are nonexistent. I can go for almost 6 hours without a leak, and I don't have to buy tampons, though I do use pads still because my cycle is so heavy that leaks are inevitable. By day three of my cycle, when things are lighter, I can last all day without emptying my cup. Oh, and I don't have to use the diaper pads. Just regular ol' liners.

    And the smell? Mild at the very worst and easily manageable.

    The weirdest part is that my cramps are much, much lighter. I have NO idea why, but I attribute it to the Lena Cup.

    Pros:
    - Cleaner
    - Longer lasting
    - More comfortable
    - Less expensive
    - Better for the environment
    - Sustainable

    Cons:
    - Takes practice
    - Can be painful (but it's no worse than the pain of a tampon slipping out)
    - It feels weird and is surprising when it pops open inside you.
    - You gotta get comfortable with yourself

    To me, half of the cons are easily overcome. All in all, I would 100% recommend the Lena Cup. It takes practice, and in my case, trying a different cup fit, but it has ultimately freed me of the monthly dread I felt towards my period. I ALMOST feel amicable towards dear Aunt Flo.


    Pros
    • Flexible
    • Freeing
    • Better than a tampon
    • Sustainable
    Cons
    • Takes practice
    • Can be painful if you rush things
    • If it pops open, it's a bit startling.

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    Excellent for small framed women
    I have tried numerous cups that either leaked, felt like they were falling out, or just extremely uncomfortable. I am a petite woman in my late 30's, but was looking around for something way more comfortable. I finally found the Lena. I was unsure at first, but after the first use, I loved it. I do have to trim the stem on my 2 cups, but absolutely love them. I ended up throwing my other cups away, since they would leak and have to be pushed back in due to being too big. Excellent cup and highly recommend.
    Pros
    • No leaks
    • Fits comfortably
    • Shorter than the diva and Luna
    Cons
    • Sometimes hard to clean the vent holes

    Yes, I recommend this product.
