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.

If you’re unsure of what size you need, please contact our Advice Team

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

Testimonials

I'm from Australia and a friend's sister told me about mooncups when we were about 14 -tho her terminology was somewhat cruder! I had a few hippyish friends and many of them had heard about them, but none of us really knew where to get them from back in the dark ages BI (before the internet)! FF a few years until after I'd moved to the UK, I finally discovered them on the internet... when I was pregnant!! Ah the irony! Then, thanks to lactational amhenorrea I didn't get a period for nearly 2 years, but after that, I was browsing through Boots one freezing morning and came across a moon cup! YAY! I was trepidatious -£20 is a lot to shell out for something that you're not sure about (I think it must've been in the first release), but I bought it and have never used a tampon since -sometimes I have resorted to pads, especially as after 7years, during my last pregnancy my Mooncup was thrown away, and now, 2 years on I have to get organised and order a new one from OS, which seems like effort, but I'll be oh so happy when it gets here and I can swim etc. I find that showering twice/day and inserting it then solves any dramas with mess & public loos, tho' it's not too bad when the toilet is in the bathroom and you can use a flannel (never felt too comfy with the idea of flush water). The cup is sooo comfy (or more to the point unnoticable)! and less dangerous than 2 tampons!!! (which I saw recommended elsewhere for heavy flow) My daughter is getting one for her menstruation onset celebration, whenever that be! And I recommend them to anyone who brings up tampon discomfort -tho it's tricky to know who will give you the blank "crazy loon" look! It did take a couple of months to get used to it and ocasionally there were issues when I mis-inserted it, but nothing more than when tampons were new, and it's sooooooo much comfier & more convenient (especially when camping/travelling) when it is right! & to the teen girls reading this, don't have sex when it's up your vagina, but you shouldn't be doing that with tampons either!! (from a mum)
