Yes. Lunette and My Cup brands of menstrual cups are made from the highest quality of medical grade silicone. That means that the material is perfectly safe to be inside your body for prolonged periods of time. Medical grade silicone is a non-porous material, it does not shed fibres (like tampons do) and does not feed bacteria so it doesn't grow.
Before using for the first time, boil your cup in a pan for 15 mins.
You can also put it into the microwave for 5 mins. Put it into a microwavable bowl that is filled with water. Whatever method you use, be sure to keep an eye on the level of water. You may need to add more if it evaporates.
Before and after each period boil your Lunette cup for 3-5 minutes. Again you can use a pan or the microwave.
During your period simply empty any blood into the toilet, rinse the cup in cold water first, then wash in warm water, then re-insert. Easy!
If you’re out and about and don’t have access to water, try Lunette’s specially designed Cup Wipes. Empty your cup into the toilet and then wipe clean with a wipe before reinserting.

Flow - Have a light flow, then choose size 1. If you have a heavier flow, give size 2 a go!
Age - For teens and young users, then the smaller size 1 is recommended.
Mums - We recommend size 2.
Cervix - If you have a low-sitting cervix, try the shorter size 1 for a better fit.
Lifestyle - If you’re a fitness goddess with strong vaginal muscles, consider using the softer size 1.
Bladder - If you have a sensitive bladder, the softer size 1 cup might be better suited to your needs.

A menstrual cup will replace your use of simple-use tampons. On average a woman uses approx 4kg of disposable menstrual products each year. That's 40kg over the life of a menstrual cup. 40kg compared to a 16g menstrual cup... how amazing is that?
Each year a woman spends on average $240 on menstrual products. Over 10 years that's $2400. Compare that to the price of a menstrual cup. You could save yourself $2350!
