Which size?

How do I know which size Mooncup to buy?
The Mooncup is available in two sizes: size ‘A’ and size ‘B’. Sizing is based on pelvic floor tone, not menstrual flow, and it’s important to get the sizing right to get the best from your Mooncup.

Pelvic floor tone will vary according to your age, childbearing history and what sort of exercise you do. Corrective surgery to the vagina will also have implications. Check the guidelines to see which size you need:

Size Table

Size Size A

Because vaginal and pelvic floor tones naturally reduce with age, the size ‘A’ Mooncup is recommended for women aged 30 or over. The difference between the ‘A’ and the ‘B’ is only small (3mm), but it is crucial!

Size ‘A’ is also recommended for all women who have given birth vaginally, regardless of age.

Size Size A

Designed for young girls and women under the age of 30 who have not given birth vaginally. It may also be suitable for women over the age of 30 who have had corrective surgery to the vagina, or who are advanced in tone-maintaining activities such as yoga, dance or pilates.

It's important to buy the right size, as we cannot exchange once the Mooncup is dispatched.

I finally bought a moon cup, 9 years after I first heard about it and wanted one!!! When I was 12 I saw an advert and thought- this is amazing! Seems so easy and environmentally friendly! But alas my mum wasn't keen so i left it and forgot about it. I recently saw another advert so did some more research. I think women in this day and age are made to feel like periods are gross and something to keep hidden- even away from yourself, so at first I thought it was really disgusting to tip out your own period blood. Then after some research I thought it's no more 'disgusting' than using tampons or disposable sanitary towels. Its better for the environment and cheaper in the long run! I also am paranoid about leaking and having something to collect flow rather than absorb does a better job I think. Anyway, my moon cup arrived literally on the last day of my period so I practiced getting it in and out- it was harder than I expected (But I did expect it to be like a tampon). Now I'm on my next period and used it straight away, I have not leaked and it's been in place longer than I would leave a tampon in. Putting it in is much easier, still perfecting my removal technique but it's still only technically my second/third day of using it. I would recommend this product, its not drying like tampons, although I suspect you may get sore if you are removing/adjusting it all the time- the key is relaxing! Going to try it swimming and overnight on a heavy flow and then I will repost if it's done the job, because it's safe to say that I think I've been converted!
