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.


When I first looked into menstrual cups, all I could find were (to me) weirdo hippies going on about being more in touch with the Moon and using the blood to fertilize their houseplants. NO thank you! But then I met some "normal" people who used them and figured I'd try it. I've spent more on dumb experiments than this, how bad could it be? Well, I've been using mine for a year and a half (ish) and I can't imagine going back. I dread when my period comes unexpectedly and I have to use a pad or tampon for a few hours. I didn't think I'd be that person to preach Mooncups to the masses, but everything they say about these things is true! It never leaks, so I can wear my normal underwear (hallelujah!), I only have to check it in the morning and before bed, it's a one-time purchase that pays itself off in a couple months ... yeah, I'm a crazy Mooncup lover! Try it. Seriously, do it. Even if you've tried the disposable cups and didn't like them, get a Mooncup. Save the environment, save some money, get to wear your favorite undies, whatever you want. Just try it.
