Love Your Vagina

5000 mile project          especially when you think how much love and attention you          lavish on your hair, nails, teeth and skin

         That's why we've created an alternative type of sanitary          protection that's attracting more and more women every year.           It's called Mooncup, and here it is...


         We bet you winced when you saw this, everyone does. But there          are three reasons why we think it's important that you get to          know it.

         Most sanitary products can dry it out and leave fibres behind.          The Mooncup is designed to respect your natural balance.

         unlike the cotton in other sanitary products, which often contains          bleaches and pesticides.

         every woman will use an average of 11,000 sanitary products in          her life, which can be replaced by one reusable Mooncup          

         why not find out what other women who've tried it have to say at

We asked you what you lovingly called yours, and over 47,000
of you told us...

A friend told me about mooncup a few years ago and I thought it was revolting! Honestly I just couldn't get my head around it and didn't even consider giving it a try! By the way I'm a midwife so really should have been more accepting of it... Lol! Recently in my quest to start trying for a baby I've made some lifestyle changes to improve my health! For a long time now Tampons left me feel sore and dry especially on my lighter days and I hate using pads! I hate feeling like I'm wearing a nappy, the smell when changing them and having my waste bin filled with them! I also feel unclean during my time of month and just want to stay in bed till it's all over! Recently I went into boots to stock up on more tampons and Pads! I spotted the mooncup on the shelf picked it up and never turned back! I didn't even give myself the chance to think about it! The pack recommends to start using on day 2/3 of your period however once I'd bought it I went home and after contending with another Pad (I started that very day) I decided why wait! I boiled the mooncup and stuck it in! It took a few attempts before I more or less removed the whole stem before it was comfortable! But once it was in I forgot it was there! The problem came when it come to removing it! I couldn't find or reach the bloody thing and had no idea it would creep up so high! I tried with all my might to no avail... In the end called my husband who obviously wanted no part in my disaster and simple passed me the instruction booklet! So the instructions say relax don't panic... Blah blah blah! I was already tense and yes panicking! I honestly believed i'd have to go to A&E and have it surgically removed! Did I mention I'm a midwife!!!! Chances are I would know the gynaecology doctor called to assist at the local unit so this was not an option! I calmed down took some deep breaths did some little pushes and the moon cup materialised! I won't lie was a bit messy, and the floor, my god the floor! But the cup was out! I rinsed it of and popped it back in! After spending £20 I was not going to be defeated on my first use! 3days later and I love it! Wish I tried it before, I can almost forget I'm even on! No cramps at all, no leaks at all and in never ever going back to tampons or pads! I want to tell everybody and anybody about mooncup! Unfortunately my friends don't seem to share my enthusiasm! A little disappointed I didn't receive any stickers with my box otherwise I would have used them in the loos at work and try convert a few more!
