How long does the Mooncup last?

How long will my Mooncup last?
With the advised cleaning and storage, the Mooncup® will last for years and years, if there is any change in the material of your Mooncup if it splits or becomes sticky, or there is any change in the shape of your Mooncup then it will need replacing. There may be some natural staining that occurs over time which does not affect the hygiene or effectiveness of the Mooncup. If you choose to remove the staining, soak the Mooncup in diluted sterilising fluid (used for sterilizing baby equipment and available in chemists), follow the manufacturer’s dilution guidelines, and soak for the minimum recommended time, then rinse thoroughly with clean water.

I've been using a mooncup for about 4 years. It made life sooooo much easier - I could forget about changing tampons every 2hrs during the first two nights of my period, and finally got a good 8 hrs sleep! It took a bit of practice to get it inserted comfortably, and getting it out can sometimes be a fight against suction, but no biggie. I travel a lot on business, and it's so much easier to pack my mooncup every trip, instead of taking 2 boxes of tampons if my period is due. Now I'm into menopause (10 years early, thanks for nothing, body!) so I'm really irregular, but I never worry about being caught without tampons. I think all girls should be told about this at school, instead of all that nonsense with towels and tampons.
