The MCUK - known in the UK as Mooncup - 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, MCUK offers an end to the waste, discomfort and expense of disposable sanitary protection.


Made from soft medical grade silicone, MCUK 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. MCUK 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 MCUK, and it lasts for years and years, making it the most economical sanitary product you can buy.

How to use the Mooncup


Just bought my mooncup today after a lot of reading up on the net, I have awful trouble with tampons and hate towels so I though it can't be any worse than the monthly struggles I suffer... I got home and tried it straight away and I have to say I'm just totally amazed! I thought I'd leak until I got the hang of it, but not a single drop! I jumped around, as I cycle and swim I needed to be sure it was secure, and I didn't even know it was there. I'm almost at the end of this period, but I'm actually looking forward to nxt month when I can really feel liberated and get on with my life without worries or sore lady parts from bleached uncomfortable towels or awful leaks from tampons. I wish this was advertised more openly and that I'd discovered it 20 years ago when I first started my periods. Thankyou mooncup!!
