How to use the Mooncup


I have had mine for about 2 years now and i love it!!! i wish someone had told me about this earlier and i want to get all my friends to use one too but it is difficult to try to convince them because it is something new and it does take alittle getting used to, but once you have cracked it it is soo worth it!! so comfortable i forget i am on my period alot because i cant feel it. it is sooo much more convenient for traveling or just to keep in your bag incase, and ive only spent £20 since i bought it 2 years ago an im sure it will last me for many years to come saving me hundreds of pounds and more importantly to me saving all that waste and impact on the environment, there is nothing worse than seeing a tampon or sanitary towel on the beach when your trying to enjoy your hols once i got used to using it i have never had a problem with it, i use it while swimming and doing sports and even my boyfriend isnt aware i am on my period unless i tell him. I wont look back!!. Towels and tampons are horrible and smelly and so wasteful and uncomfortable,.. who wants to walk around wearing what feels like a nappy all day sticking to your leggs an crinkling, horrible!! because the blood is still inside you before you empty it it doesnt come into contact with the air so it doesnt smell at all and you simply empty it away and rinse the mooncup what could be simpler! if you have been umming and arring just go out and get one you will wonder why you didnt do it sooner!! :D Anna
