Mooncup Review Archives – 9 Questions about the Mooncup, answered!

The ‘Mooncup Review Archives’ will answer every question you’ve ever thought of!

At Mooncup HQ we may well have heard every question in the period book. No matter how “TMI” you may think it is, chances are we’ve probably heard it. In fact maybe we could compile the “Period Book” if we needed to. We like to take pride in our menstrual geekiness in this business! 😉

Basically, there’s no topic off-limits for us when it comes to menstrual fluid and its collection. And even though the conversation and knowledge about menstrual cups is growing year by year, there are still those tricksy questions that continue to puzzle the uninitiated.

From the thoughtful and more obscure:
“Can you use the Mooncup whilst deep sea diving?”

…to the commonly pondered and practical:
“How the heck do I clean it in a public loo?”

We could easily wax lyrical about why the Mooncup menstrual cup is the best period option out there, but we thought we’d dig into the Mooncup® Review Archives to see how users themselves discovered all the answers to the very questions you’re thinking of.  🙂 We have reviews sent to us each week which live on the testimonials section of our site. You can also find loads more reviews on the Boots website, so do take a look if you’re thinking of making the switch.
