How to use the Mooncup


A friend told me about it and I was meaning to give it a go, although was put off by it's 'hippy' image i guess, until she said she hadn't looked back and the thought of using a tampon seemed really unhygienic now, so i gave it a go. Brilliant! Took a month to get used to it. Can't feel it, never leak, don't have to worry about carrying stuff, no money on tampons, environmental, less 'dragging' period pain, more comfort. Thank you!
