The Lena Menstrual Cup is a healthy and conscious alternative to pads and tampons.
Lena is a bell-shaped menstrual cup that collects your monthly menstrual blood. Inserted like a tampon, Lena sits comfortably in your vagina and offers a leak and sensation-free period.
Lena Cup is ideal for teens and adult users and offers complete protection during rest, sleep and physical activities.
Most people can wear either size Lena Cup but choose one over the other primarily based on flow amount, cervix height and general physique. Unlike other brands, at Lena we do not believe that age and birthing history play a significant role in choosing a menstrual cup. Mothers with multiple births are happily using LENA Small while teenagers, with a heavy flow, choose LENA Large.
Lena Small is ideal for users with a Normal flow and Lena Large is suited for people with a Heavy flow. You can visit our Sizing Guide page for further guidelines.
LENA SMALL IS VOTED #1 BEST BEGINNER CUP
Lena Small is one of the smallest menstrual cups on the market and is equally favored by teenagers and adults alike - Lena Small is ideal for first time cup users and for people with a normal menstrual flow
A CUP FOR EVERYONE
From your first to your last period, Lena Small is ideal for all users regardless of physique, activity level and reproductive history. Inserted like a tampon, Lena Cup sits comfortably in your vagina and lets you stay active and comfortable during your period
CHOOSE A BETTER PERIOD
When positioned correctly, there is no sensation from either the cup or the stem and you can forget you are on your period for 12 hours each time. You can dance, run, swim and sleep with your Lena Cup
LENA LARGE WITH HIGHER COLLECTION CAPACITY
Lena Large has a higher collection capacity than our small cup and is ideal for users with a heavy menstrual flow looking for longer-lasting protection
BASED ON FLOW, NOT BIRTH HISTORY AND AGE
Lena Large is successfully used by teenagers and adults who are looking for added protection – at Lena we do not base our sizing guidelines on age and birthing history but on flow amount and general physique. Read more about Lena’s sizing guidelines on our FAQs page

Lena’s superior patented design offers a leak, odor and sensation-free period. Join thousands of first-time menstruation cup users who say they will never go back to using pads and tampons
I am so so impressed! I was incredibly worried about using a cup because I thought I had a heavy flow... i used to change tampons every 2 hours, but using the Lena cup I only had to rinse 3-4 times a day! WHAT?! It’s comfortable and easy to use as long as you’re comfortable with yourself down there. Taking it out is the hardest part, but still doesn’t hurt like tampons sometimes would. I will never use a tampon again! I’m so glad I decided to give this a try!
This is my second Lena cup purchase! My first one I had for a little over a year...I did not take great care of it, it could have lasted me longer if I followed the care guidelines! This is a great cup for first-time menstrual cup users, it gets the job done and once you get the hang of it, your period week is made so much easier.
I'm going to be completely honest here. The first couple days with this cup were rough. Not because of this particular cup, but just menstrual cups in general. It definitely takes you through a learning curve that makes you want to give up because sometimes it hurts SO bad to put the cup in and pull it out. But after a few days of trying, I honestly ended up loving this cup. It's sooo much easier to use than 100 pads and tampons for 1 period. Seriously, it's awesome, just takes a bit to get used to.
I've been wanting to switch to a cup for ages, and after careful research online + talking to friends I concluded Lena would be best for me. "Soft enough to easily fold for insertion, firm enough to open on its own and create a strong seal."
So far so good in that regard! I definitely had the insertion learning curve, and am far from being a pro with removal, but it's been great to put it in first thing in the morning, and then not have to worry about changing anything for the rest of the day.
Viva la Lena!
I absolutely LOVE my Lena cup! It took me two or so cycles to get the hang of it and feel comfortable and confident using it. I've used o.b. tampons for years, which don't have applicators so the switch wasn't too drastic. With the cup, I don't ever feel it, once you're confident with the removal and insertion it's so much better than a tampon. I'm truly in love with this purchase, definitely never going back to tampons, I would say it's changed my life!
Although I now have great things to say about it, I don't want to minimize the learning curve. For me cups were never talked about, I did a lot of research before I bought my cup and I was still a bit worried if they were safe, if I would be able to make it work, if I could even get it out... I don't know anyone who uses a cup so I couldn't ask how they like it or if it is safe. While I was doing research, i found a huge disparity between, 'this is great!' and 'this is dangerous and will cause walls to collapse.' If you're looking for a source of information to know what cup would work for you, I found the PutACupInIt ladies extremely helpful!
