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.

Testimonials

I chose the menstrual cup for environmental reasons, and I chose mooncup in particular because of how accessible they made the switch from tampons seem. Yes, I was dubious, I had my doubts if it was 'for me', but now - like many women seem to suggest - the idea of going back to any other method seems unthinkable. I had resort to tampons for one day during my last period, and the difference was huge - I had forgotten the discomfort (that 'dragging' feeling) of tampons, and by the end of the day I was relieved to get home and switch back to mooncup. I wore a pantyliner for the first couple of cycles until I was comfortable with the cup, but now I am confident in my own insertion technique and never use one. 9 months on, I can hand-on-heart say I would never go back! I've saved about £30 on tampons already, so the mooncup has more than paid of itself, too. Bonus!
