How to use your


While many get the knack of using the Mooncup straight away, it can take up to 3 cycles.
Remember, your reusable menstrual cup should last for years and years. Once you’ve got it, you won’t look back.


As you would when using tampons, always wash your hands
before inserting and removing your Mooncup®.

Trim (first use)

  • The base of the cup should sit as low as possible in the vagina.  As vaginal length varies, the first time you use your Mooncup you may need to trim the stem to get the best fit for you.
