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


As people say there is a new start for every thing... and for me it was a new country (!LOVE UK!) and - Mooncup! I've used it for only a month now but am totally in love with it and will never-ever now be on tampons or pads again, and it is such a relief, a liberation of a very intimate and pleasant sort. I've known about menstrual cups for some time now but in my home country LATVIA they are hard to get, expencive and as funny as it may be, portraited as "dangerous" by some people:) But from the time I've moved to UK now I could find them in Boots with no problem at all! Yes 22£ is a lot but think about the nature and about your health - isn't it worth it? I am so happy, no words can express it!!!
