Pro Good for vaginas wider than average
The Lena cup is wider than most other cups on the market making it a better fit for women who find other menstrual cups a bit loose. It's important to use the appropriate size, since the cup needs to be snug against the vaginal walls in order to prevent leaks.
Pro Has an easier-to-clean solid stem
This cup has a solid stem, that does not let blood and gunk build up inside of it. This makes this cup easier to clean than cups with hollow stems.
Pro One of the easiest to clean and insert
The Lena cup is one of the smoothest cups out there, so cleaning and inserting it is even easier than other cups.
If taken care of properly, menstrual cups can last for years. You won’t need to spend money every month, which has a good impact on your wallet, and you won’t be contributing to extra waste, which has a good impact on the environment.
Con May become discolored over time
It will become stained or discolored lightly over time, but this can be remedied by boiling it after the end of the cycle each month.
Con Needs rinsing after each use
You need to rinse it out after emptying, and most public bathrooms do not have a sink in the stall. This makes it awkward to clean in any place that doesn't have a sink right beside the toilet, and can lead to awkward situations in public restrooms. This is common for all menstrual cups.
Con Temporary leaking
Many women report leaking a short while after inserting the cup. This is due to residual blood from the walls of the vagina. This can only be fixed by washing straight after inserting the cup, and is common for all menstrual cups.
Con Steep learning curve
You need to get used to the insertion and removal to avoid uncomfortable spills and leakage.
