Mooncup

The Mooncup is a reusable menstrual cup around two inches long and made from soft silicone rubber. It is worn internally like a tampon but collects menstrual fluid rather than absorbing. Unlike tampons the Mooncup is not a disposable product, so you only need to buy one.

The Mooncup will hold 30ml of fluid, which is roughly one third of the average total produced each period. A light seal is formed with your vaginal walls allowing your menstrual fluid to pass into the Mooncup without leakage or odour. You will probably find that you need to empty your Mooncup less frequently than you currently replace towels or tampons.

The Mooncup menstrual cup contains no bleaches, deodorisers or absorbency gels. It does not interfere with your healthy vaginal environment, nor has it been associated with toxic shock syndrome.

The smooth surface of the Mooncup allows the mucus membranes of your vaginal wall to continue their essential cleansing and protective functions. The Mooncup does not absorb your body's natural defence mechanisms and will not deposit fibres in your vaginal wall.

The Mooncup will not cause irritation and is suitable for women with sensitive skin, thrush, eczema or allergy.

For your safety the Mooncup is made from a special medical grade non-allergic silicone. Silicone is derived from silica which is one of the most abundant minerals on earth. The Mooncup is manufactured in the UK.

The Mooncup can be cleaned in the same way as baby equipment: with sterilising fluid, or by boiling for five minutes in an open pan of water.

Unlike pads and tampons the Mooncup menstrual cup is reusable, eliminating the need to carry bulky spares. With proper care your Mooncup will last for several years.

Imagine the towels and tampons that you will be disposing of in landfill sites during those years!

"I've been using the Mooncup for three years and it has been fantastic. I have a very heavy flow and used to use 2 x super plus tampons at a time, and a pad as well, and I would still be in a mess in an hour for the first 2 days of my period. Apart from saving me a fortune, and not supporting pharmaceutical giants, it is much gentler on your body than tampons. Try it, it is really worth it."

Size B is recommended for women who have not given birth or who have had a caesarean section and are aged below 30.

How easy is it to use the Mooncup menstrual cup ?

Correctly inserted, the Mooncup is so comfortable that you will forget it exists. It may take a little practice at first as you need to find the angle and position that is right for you.

Once you have perfected it you will be amazed at how simple the Mooncup is to use. You will need to empty, rinse or wipe and reinsert your Mooncup every four to eight hours depending on your flow. The fluid remains inside the cup, and the process is not messy or uncomfortable.

The Mooncup can safely be used overnight and is great for all sports, swimming and travelling.

Each Mooncup comes boxed, with one Mooncup, an organic cotton storage pouch and a detailed user guide.

Good for swimming on lighter days, but I just don't trust it on heavier days. Maybe it's me (I have also tried the Diva Cup which was the same) but it seems very hit and miss as to whether it is fitted correctly and I have persevered for months

Having never used tampons at all I was really nervous. Surprisingly I came on the day my mooncup arrived so I've had some time to give it a try. I have to say I completely and utterly love it and won't go back. I've not felt so clean and free to whatever I want before. I'd highly recommend it.
