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.

Testimonials

I have been using a mooncup for 2 years now and love it. It stays in place through everyday activities including cycling, tennis and yoga. During my heaviest days it lasts around 6 hours, twice as long as super tampons. Inserting and removing did require practice and is not easy if your fingernails are very long. I also cut the entire stem off the mooncup because it is more comfortable, but it makes removal a bit more difficult. There is a tiny bit of leakage or spotting during heavy days so I now wear a slim cloth pad as backup. Since switching to the mooncup and cloth pads, I have very little discomfort and irritation during my period. No more disposable menstrual products for me!
