Testimonials

I had a Mirena coil inserted at the beginning of September this year- it was awful. The continuous trickle of bleeding meant I was having to either use pads which I loathe, or risk using tanpons which were incredibly painful to remove as they never absorbed much! I bought my mooncup just over a month ago and cannot believe the improvement in my quality of life. I'm so much more comfortable and happy- no more ruined underwear or waiting for the worst to happen. I only found out about them through research and I'm so glad I did. I think if you can- everyone should use them!
