Pro Excellent for first-time users
Because everyone's body is different, finding the perfect menstrual cup is a trial-and-error process. MeLuna has many options when it comes to choosing the shape, size and firmness of your cup. This lets you change only one variable at a time within the same brand, instead of having to go through the choosing process all over again.
Pro Comfortable for most people
The MeLuna Classic is a happy medium in terms of firmness - the average person won't feel it once it is inserted, and it's not too soft to cause more leaking than usual. For people with a very active lifestyle, there's the Meluna Sport cup, which is much more firm.
Pro Versatile folding design
This cup stands out with its ability to be folded the most number of ways, so you can try out multiple methods and find one that's most comfortable for you.
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 Steep learning curve
You need to get used to the insertion and removal to avoid uncomfortable spills and leakage. On top of that, this cup can be folded in many ways, and it might take some trial and error before you figure out what works best for you.
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.
