Shorty MeLuna Classic
Shorty MeLuna Classic
SHORTY version for women with a low cervix
There is a reason why MeLuna is offered in so many different versions: The needs of our customers are ultimately very different, because every woman is different.
The right degree of firmness for you:
CLASSIC The firmness level Classic is medium soft and suitable for most women. MeLuna Classic is still soft and at the same time firm enough so that your menstrual cup can easily unfold after insertion. MeLuna Classic is perceived by our customers as very comfortable. Women involved in very active physical activities may prefer the Sport version. For some customers a too soft cup may become more easily dislodged or unsealed than a firmer cup.
The right fit is important.
The most important part about comfort and functionality in a menstrual cup is to choose the perfect fit for your body.
Many manufacturers offer only one or two sizes of cups. To make up for poor fit, a very soft material is necessary to limit the wearer's discomfort.
For a menstrual cup to work well, it is important that the size fits.
The cup is too small when:
- a seal can not be properly formed
- the cup slides or twists
- the cup may be difficult to remove because it sites very deep
The cup is too large when:
- the cup can not completely unfold
- the cup can be felt while wearing creating a feeling of pressure or is even painful
Please consider these other criteria before making a decision:
BIRTHS After vaginal birth you may need to adjust size of menstrual cup to accommodate the change in your body. In most cases you may need a larger size having given birth. Women who have never had sexual intercourse - who are still a virgin - usually are advised to use the size S or M.
PHYSIQUE Small, petite women are more likely to choose size S or M. Women who are tall or women with a broad built mostly prefer larger menstrual cup sizes. Body size and stature seem to have an influence on the required size of a menstrual cup.
FITNESS Physical activities affect the overall stability of your connective tissue and your muscles. For this reason it is sometimes possible for very fit women to choose a smaller cup size. Different sports or exercises have a strong effect on the pelvic floor muscles. Particularly noteworthy are: Horseback riding, yoga, pilates, Kegel exercises, pole dancing, etc.
AGE It is sometimes assumed that the choice for menstrual cup size can also vary by age of the customer. This theory can be justified by the fact that as the muscle decreases with age a woman may require a larger menstrual cup. This has not been confirmed for us. There seems to be no proven link. Women with a petite built, whose stature has not changed and who had no vaginal births may well use the size S into menopause. Just as a young woman can be built large, have weak connective tissue and may get a better fit from the beginning in the MeLuna size L. You may take the age into consideration if you are in between sizes.
In addition to our standard MeLuna cups we are also offering the MeLuna Shorty. MeLuna Shorty differs from the standard model by its shape; it has a shorter cup length and runs tapered to a point. Due to the short cone shape it pops open more strongly and seals a little more firmly. Removal may require a little more practice under certain circumstances.
We recommend the MeLuna Shorty for women whose vagina is very short for various reasons or the cervix close to the entrance of the vagina. Women who had a prolapsed uterus (uterine descent) may find the Shorty to be a better option than standard cups.
Choosing the right handle option:
RING The ring is easy to grasp and the MeLuna can be removed without a challenge. Beginners often prefer the ring.
BALL The ball is our most frequently requested handle type. It is small and comfortably round. Many women are most comfortable with this type of handle.
STEM The stem is recommended for women whose cervix sits further back/up. Even beginners who are worried that the cup may be difficult for them to grasp for removal may feel more confident with the longer stem. If it is bothersome, the stem can be cut or shortened as required.
