About the Mooncup

The Mooncup is a reusable menstrual cup, around two inches long and made from soft medical grade silicone. It is worn internally a lot lower than a tampon but, while tampons and pads absorb menstrual fluid, the Mooncup collects it. This means it doesn’t cause dryness or irritation, and also that it collects far more (three times as much as a tampon!). Because the Mooncup is reusable, you only need one so it saves you money and helps the environment, too.

The Mooncup is designed to be folded and inserted into the vagina, then removed, rinsed and reinserted up to every 8 hours. A light seal is formed with your vaginal walls, allowing menstrual fluid to pass into the Mooncup without leakage or odour. This seal is released for removal, allowing you to empty the contents, rinse or wipe and reinsert. Comfortable, convenient and safe: the Mooncup can be used overnight and when travelling, swimming or exercising.

I first saw Mooncups on the shelf at Boots when shopping with a friend, we both looked curiously at it, then decided it was far too big to fit "in there" and was quite scary. Fast forward a few years and I was reading through some travel blogs where one lady swore by her Mooncup, stating how amazing it was. I scoured the testimonials on the website and decided to give it a go. How I wish I had picked one up when I first saw them! I was hooked after the first month so promptly bought my friend one. To say she was a little surprised with my wonderful gift is a massive understatement, but, she too got hooked and has already converted a few of her friends. I have been singing the praises of Mooncups now for 9 months, I will never go back to tampons, the smell and that horrid swollen feeling I used to get "down there" every month. I love feeling clean, comfortable, (and very smug each time I walk past the tampax aisle in Tesco). I have been deploying stickers on toilet doors and handing out leaflets to anybody that will listen. A few of my work mates (and my sister) are getting a bit sick of my constant advertising, but I won't give up until they are all converted!!
