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 have just started using a mooncup, picked it up at boots while stocking up on tampons. I have to say, despite ignoring most of the tips, I have had no trouble whatsoever using it, folding method 2 all the way, and trimmed the stem right back. No leaks, no discomfort, no hassle. What a fantastic idea, too! It's the end of taking my handbag to the loo, or trying to subtly hide a tampon in my hand, the end of worrying that I haven't enough tampons to last me through an evening (my periods are short but very heavy for the first 2 days), the end of dashing into shops trying to find tampons when I've been caught short... just ingenious! Not to mention the savings... Love it!
