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 couldn't believe it could really be as life changing as the testimonials I'd read/rave reviews from friends but IT IS THAT GOOD. It took me one period to get used to it- I would really advise testing out inserting and removing it when you're not on your period so you get used to it (if you rinse it with a bit of water its easier to insert). Tricky at first but definitely definitely worth persevering and so easy when you get used to it. I suffer from really heavy periods and Mooncup is so much better than so called super extra absorbant tampons. I can actually rely on it and I don't have to worry about changing it when I'm out either, so I can forget about my period and just get on with stuff! It's just so much cleaner. I don't worry about staining my underwear any more and there's something about not needing to break out the Bridget Jones pants that makes being on my period less of an ordeal!
