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.

My mooncup has truly changed my life. Since I was little I was always just 'one of the boys'. I never had girly things, preferring to play with the boys in my class instead of doing stuff with the girls. When my periods started, I was absolutely disgusted. With pads, with the mess, and with myself, that I had a body that made me go through this every month. My period occupied my every waking minute, dreading when it would happen again. Wearing pads and tampons made me feel dirty, so much that I would hold off as long as possible, and end up having to throw away half my underwear drawer each month. I became very depressed, and even suicidal. Counselling and anti-depressants didn't help, and as soon as I was old enough, I went to my local family planning clinic and asked for the Implanon implant, as I had heard that it stopped periods in some cases. This happened, and I enjoyed 3 blissful years of being period-free. 3 years came to an end, and around that time I heard about mooncup. I decided to give it a try, and right from the word go, I felt new. Reborn, even. For the first time in my entire life, I actually feel like the woman I am. I enjoy having my period, as it gives me a link to other women I had never felt before. I feel comfortable with my body, and even don't mind talking about periods anymore. I even recommended mooncup to a friend when she told me she was allergic to tampons. She bought one that afternoon, and took me out for drinks to say thank you! It's been a year since I bought my mooncup. Life is good, and I have you to thank. Thank you.
