The Mooncup - known in the USA as MCUK - is the original silicone menstrual cup designed by women to be a convenient, safe and eco-friendly alternative to tampons and sanitary pads. Loved by women all around the world, and made in the UK by a multi-award winning ethical business, the Mooncup menstrual cup offers an end to the waste, discomfort and expense of disposable sanitary protection.


Made from soft medical grade silicone, the Mooncup is latex-free and contains no dyes, BPA, toxins or bleaches. It’s also great for women with sensitive skin.

Tampons can cause dryness and leave fibres behind. The Mooncup is designed to respect your natural balance.


On average, one woman will use over 11,000 tampons or pads in their lifetime, which will end up in landfill or in the sea.


One woman uses up to 22 items of sanitary protection every period. Regardless of your flow, you only need one Mooncup, and it lasts for years and years, making it the most economical sanitary product you can buy.

How to use the Mooncup


I can't find my words to express how happy I am right now! It's the first time I have used the Mooncup. I opted for a size A and B - I am 31 and gave birth 10 months ago via a C-section. I know, I should have started with the A , but I said: why not the B? the first two days were perfect - but then again it was the light period of my period. In the third and fourth day I had the chance to understand that "low" means "low". It was quite odd for me , a FORMER ;) heavy user of OBs and Tampax and other internal tampons. I could not understand what LOW really meant. I trimmed the stem by half and , really, I can remove it entirely! Low means low, I can still grab it (yes, I have long fingers, but they do not need to be that long :-). and if we place it too high, a little bit of exercise to push it down is beneficial for the muscles. SO, now that I have mastered the art of placing the mooncup where it should be (it's really strange in the beginning, even after reading the manual and looking at the pictures, I still felt like it should be up - lucky me, the leakage taught me otherwise), I am 100% happy! Not a single cramp these days, but I cannot say for sure that it's because of hte cup or not, I do not understand what's the connection between the two. I definitely felt lighter and full of energy. Of course, staying at home with my daughter was helpful - all the changing and cleaning was done at home, plenty of hot water and soap and fresh towels :D. But, God, why haven't I heard about this MIRACLE years ago? Why was I using those creepy internal tampons or the external pads, always worrying about leakage, spots, thrush, itchiness? I even went to my usual pilates hours and felt great (even though for a moment or two I thought I felt the blood going back up because of my position :)) ). Not to mention the respect we show Mother Earth by not buying disposable tampons. If I had the money, I would buy such a gift to all my friends! some of the smartest investments in my whole life! I will keep the other A cup for travelling, just in case I get stuck somewhere and I have no clean water to wash the B cup. And, you know, for the first time in my life I was looking forward to have my period and test the cup :). Good job in connecting us with our Feminine side ! Thanks Mooncup!
