Which size do I need?
First you need to measure the height of your cervix. You can find details on how to do this in our article "how to measure your cervix height". Once you know this, depending on the height of your cervix will dictate the disc you need.
Short - If you feel your cervix with your 1st knuckle inserted (up to 1½ in / 4 cm), you have a short cervix.
Medium - If you can only feel your cervix after inserting 2 knuckles (between 1½ in / 4 cm and 2½ in / 6 cm), you have a medium cervix.
High - If your cervix is more than 2½ inches away, you have a high cervix.

String= 6mm. The string can be shortened with scissors or, for those who prefer not to use a string, it can be cut off altogether. To use the string correctly, you just need to hold it and pull gently until it's untucked from the pubic bone. When it's completely untucked, you can use your fingers to guide the disc outside your vagina. Very important note: The string is only to be used to untuck the disc from the pubic bone.
How To Insert
1.Squeeze the rim in the middle of the menstrual disc to form an “8” shape, maintaining the string in front of the disc.
2.Insert the disc into the vaginal canal.
3. Continue pushing the disc toward the end of the canal until you feel that it’s positioned under your cervix.
4. Push upwards on the front of the rim, securing it behind the pubic bone. Part of the silicone string will remain outside the entrance of the vagina.
How To Remove
Pull lightly and slowly with the front of the string until the rim of the disc slips off the pubic bone and lines up with the entrance to the vagina, then pull out gently with your fingers.

Mess Free Period Sex
So how do Lumma menstrual discs make “period sex” possible? Unlike tampons, pads and menstrual cups, the disc doesn't stay in the middle of the vagina canal instead they fit above the vaginal canal, right below the cervix. This higher position keeps the canal free for penetration. As you can imagine, that makes all the difference. Your partner won’t even notice the disc is there. No more worrying about “that time of the month” getting in the way of romance. Wave goodbye to the old days, and say hello to a better sex life.
