How to use the Mooncup

Testimonials

I've had my mooncup for three years so I can say I've truly tried and tested it! It took me a good three months to get to grips with it, my main issue was trying to insert it too high (like a tampon) and the length of the stem. I've since removed the whole of the stem as I found that personally I don't need it. My advice for other women is to stick with it till you get used it, remember the difficulties you may have had first using a tampon and how they are second nature to insert now! The main benefits for me is that it really does reduce the amount of pain my period gives me, bizarre but true! During my period, I am often very dry "down there", and found that tampons made this worse. I prefer the mooncup as it does not absorb any moisture, but I find I need to use a little bit of lube (just once a day) to aid me inserting and removing it. As it holds so much more than a tampon I don't need to rush and change/empty it as often, in fact I often go to the loo and forget all about it as you really can't feel it! I've recommended it to all of my friends and family, a brilliant investment, saves money and the environment too.
