The Mooncup - known in the USA as MCUK - is the original silicone menstrual cup designed by women to be a convenient, safe and eco-friendly alternative to tampons and sanitary pads. Loved by women all around the world, and made in the UK by a multi-award winning ethical business, the Mooncup menstrual cup offers an end to the waste, discomfort and expense of disposable sanitary protection.


Made from soft medical grade silicone, the Mooncup is latex-free and contains no dyes, BPA, toxins or bleaches. It’s also great for women with sensitive skin.

Tampons can cause dryness and leave fibres behind. The Mooncup is designed to respect your natural balance.


On average, one woman will use over 11,000 tampons or pads in their lifetime, which will end up in landfill or in the sea.


One woman uses up to 22 items of sanitary protection every period. Regardless of your flow, you only need one Mooncup, and it lasts for years and years, making it the most economical sanitary product you can buy.


I recently graduated from university where, living in a women's college as I did, I used to see little stickers and flyers about the place occasionally recommending the Mooncup. I never paid particular attention to them. However, about six months ago, something I've now forgotten reminded me of those little stickers, and it occurred to me that I might as well give it a try. I spent a little time on the website looking up whether it would be suitable for me (I have extremely heavy periods, severe cramps, and use an IUD), concluded that it probably was, and ordered one. I will never go back. My Mooncup has made my life so much easier, and so much more pleasant. No leaking, no fuss, no discomfort. Although I would never have believed that it could happen, even my previously-crippling period pains have become much more bearable. It's comfortable and hygenic. I didn't even have any problems with using it during a festival. I couldn't be happier or recommend it more highly.
