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.

I first read about the Mooncup and thought yuck! Within thirty minutes of reading through the testimonials and watching the video, my Mooncup was on the way. The great thing I found was that because it doesn't have to be avoided between periods like tampons do, I could practice inserting and removing for a few weeks before the "real test". I had to remove the stem completely, but being able to do this before I needed it helped immensely. As my periods start irregularly, I was also able to insert it over night the evening before I thought I may start, and clean and reinsert as needed. Now I am on my first Real day of using it, I am already so comfortable with it I do not feel it's presence, and instead of irritation and dread, I am bouncing about telling all my female friends about it. I am never going back :)
