- Includes One Small and One Large Lena Cups
- Take the Guesswork out of Cup Sizing
- Each 2-Pack comes with two cotton storage bags
Each Lena 2-Pack comes with one Lena Small and one Lena Large cups so you can take the guesswork out of cup sizing.
Lena Small is ideal to learn on and for your lighter flow days. Lena Large has a higher collection capacity and offers added protection during your heavy flow days.
Each Lena Cup comes with its own cotton storage bag.
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.
COMPLETE PERIOD COVERAGE
The Lena Mixed 2-Pack comes with one Lena Small Cup and one Lena Large Cup and two 100% cotton storage bags. Lena Small is an ideal beginner cup and for your lighter flow days. Lena Large is perfect for overnight use and for your heavier flow days

I have been using a Lena cup for 1 year now; and like all things there are pros and cons to it.
My favorite things about it are: not needing to buy or carry tampons with me, being more environmentally friendly and sustainable by having less to create and recycle (tampons, string, cardboard, boxes, transport to stores, etc.), not having to care or behave differently because someone's pipes might clog, not getting physically dry/more dehydrated from using a cotton wad, the ease of cleaning and reinserting it when I'm at home or in a 1 room restroom facility; and have time.
The things that are still cons about this (or all) menstrual cup(s) are: always feeling the need to wear a pad with it in case it leaks and for when it does, not being able to wear it out in public due to the difficulty of and inability to empty and reinsert it in a public restroom, port-a-potty, or outdoors hiking, while having completely sanitary hands and not making a mess on my clothes or the bathroom, the extra time and efforts it can sometimes take to reinsert (especially when my body feels achy, heavy, or just plain crappy and doesn’t want to be touched or meddled with at all).
Overall, the device works as advertised. It holds an amount of menstrualness for a period of time and it’s easy to clean each day and sanitize after your menses ends. Mine is still a clear color after a year and proper cleaning (use cold water first, then warm if you will reinsert. I boil it after each menses cycle as directed). It’s flexible and firm, and once I got the hang of it, it became easier to insert and take out. I am comfortable using the Lena cup now; and it can still be a bit time consuming. Tampons are definitely quicker, easier, and more convenient (especially depending on the type of employment you have), but the Lena cup can be quick, is not always time consuming, is reusable pretty much indefinitely, and is reasonably priced at $20-25. When I first began using Lena cup it was a nightmare. After 5-6 cycles of practice with it, I adjusted and learned how to make it work for me. Now it is another option and tool in my menstrual journey. My secret to preventing it from leaking is to literally maneuver the cup around the tip of my cervix/put my cervix tip inside the cup. This ensures it won’t leak until the cup is full; and it gives me peace of mind to operate/exercise “normally”. I still have a full bloated feeling as the cup fills up, same as I did with tampon use. I still have cramps like I did when using tampons and the severity still depends on the cycle, my stress level, etc. (the cramps do seem less while the cup is first in and has not filled up all the way). Honestly, I usually can’t feel the cup fill up, so will only know it’s full when it starts overflowing onto the pad. The customer service at Lena was good. I received responses and a follow-up to my email inquiries and challenges with the cup in the beginning. They were kind and respectful people; though at the time, I wished I could have spoken to someone on the phone for help. There is only email support with Lena.
A resource I appreciated and learned much from prior to purchasing my Lena cup (which BTW is my first and only cup) was: putacupinit.com. I am a 5’2” tall woman in her late 30s with a petite athletic build. I hope my experience and explanation are helpful to you on your journey. All the best.

I tried this as my first menstrual cup and found it to be pretty good overall. Comfort level was good, but removal was difficult because I had a difficult time grasping it. I ended up dropping it down my toilet unfortunately. I switched to the diva cup and prefer the ease of removal of that one, but find insertion is a little less comfortable than Lena.
This is my second purchase from Lena. I started with Lena small and was amazed at how convenient and comfortable the cup was. Most recently, I purchased the two pack so I could have an additional small cup for travel and the large for heavier days. Could not be happier with this product and have recommended to all my family and friends!
LOVE! I’m always pleased. Insertion is easy!
Much more comfortable than the standard ones.
