Working out with the Lunette Cup!

Three weeks ago I was chosen to be one of ten semi-finalists to compete in a Biggest Loser stylecompetition. All has been going well and normal when my monthly visitor decided to pay me a visit this past Monday. Now, I do a lot of squats, lunges and I basically get my body into various weird positions during my work out. Prior to starting to use the Lunette Cup I’d had different issues with tampons staying in their place during swim practices (ah hem…flip turns) and any kind of squats or lunges. I’d always have to remove my tampon during the middle of the workout. My uterus is really tilted and while I don’t know if this is part of the reason why I’ve had issues I kind of just assume it is.

I inserted my cup in the morning and hoped that it stayed in place as drove myself to the gym to meet with my trainer. Lately we’ve started out on either the elliptical or the treadmill. No worries there with weird positions but as the work out continued the activity level and odd positions became more intense. I really hung on to hope that everything would stay in its place.

An hour passed and my cup stayed firmly where it should be! I had actually forgotten it was there until I was showering. I cannot tell you the relief and freedom I feel using the Lunette Cup. It’s almost like my period’s not a big deal to have any more at all. There’s no inconvenience to my life or the challenges I’m competing in! Thanks Lunette Cup!
