I’d heard about mooncup through a friend years ago, and I thought the idea sounded crazy! I didn’t understand how it could possibly work and I forgot about it. More recently I stumbled across an article online that talked about the environmental benefits and the money that could be saved and, intrigued, and I finally took the time to find out about mooncups.
I couldn’t believe the raving reviews for mooncups – pages and pages of them! These women were so excited about a sanitary product, and I didn’t know that was possible!
I bought one, and now I understand all those great reviews – it has genuinely changed my life! The mooncup is so comfortable and discreet, none of the nappy-like crunch of a pad or the discomfort of a tampon. Gone was the fear of wearing a bikini or going to the beach on my period. I no longer had to take an army of pads and spare underwear if I was staying at someone’s house, or worry about any unfortunate leaks.
I honestly cannot recommend the mooncup enough to anyone whose thinking of trying one. It took me a cycle of two to completely get the hang of what I was doing, but it was totally worth it! Within a few days of using it I even tested it like the girls in tampon commercials – I wore my mooncup and white underwear and it didn’t let me down! My sister has a mooncup too and loves it, and we’ve raved so much about how great it is that a friend has just gone out and bought one too!

The thought of pulling out another dry tampon made me shudder. Or being half way through my working day feeling like the blasted tampon was full, only to go to the bathroom to realise I’d acidentally peed on the string at my previous visit and it had soaked up the urine and expanded. I’d had enough of them. I found them gross.
I’d heard about the mooncup years ago and naively dismissed the idea, thinking there was no way I’d be pulling out a cup full of blood to tip away. But now I’m doing it and it’s SO much more comfortable than tampons.
When it first arrived I inspected the size of it and throught “no way is this going to work for me”. And in all honesty it didn’t for the first couple of cycles. It’s taken a while to figure out the correct angle and positioning but now I’ve nailed it and it’s changed my life. I actually find it…. interesting….! (P.s whoever made up the fact that we only bleed an egg cup full per month is a liar).
What’s even better is that it is SO much better for the environment. Did you know the plastic applicator of a tampon can take like 500 years to decompose?! Mental. With the mooncup I give it a wash between uses, and at the end of my cycle a boil ready for the next time I need it. Easy peasy and the environment is not harmed. Perfect!
Give it a try, give it several trys and don’t give up. Once you’ve got it, you’ll be trying to persuade all your mates to get one.

Hello! I always wanted to try this cup since I discovered it! I finally got one and loved since the first use! I was scared at the beginning and took a while to get use to put and take out, but now it’s perfection! No messy periods, no stress with clothes and a HUGE plus: no harm for the environment! 😉

When I first heard of the idea of a menstrual cup, I imagined it being rather similar to what tampons were to me at the time which is annoying things to put up with whilst you on your period. But I have been truly contradicted, I mean like most of us the first couple of days of your period is a bit of an uphill struggle most of the time, involving not only the possible loss of some pretty panties but also stress that goes with it all. But the Mooncup changes all that I feel, there’s no worries of if it all gushes out spontaneously or anything like that, you know that with the Mooncup you feel like you can concentrate on what’s important. On top of that your helping the planet a pad/tampon at a time. All in all I think it’s something every person with a period should have access to.

I just ordered my third Mooncup. I first heard of cups thanks to a sticker which someone had left in the girls’ bathroom at Warwick university, in 2006, I think – it was quite a few years ago. I never ever thought of using anything else after I bought my very first cup. I moved to a tropical country and it was so convenient (think of what happens with pads when you’re sweating and suffering from the heat). Now I live in Canada and I’ve had my cup for years and years, it’s time to get a new one!

I can’t believe how good the mooncup is. I dreaded getting my period because I hated the nighttime pads experience. Now, I pop the mooncup in and FORGET IT’S THERE. It is truly magic. I feel fine about getting my period now, which feels so freeing. Genuinely life changing!

I’m on the Mooncup website to buy myself a new one, because my current cup is… a decade old already! Initially I was slightly nervous, and the Mooncup support team were of amazing assistance. Now we’re 10 years on, and I would never consider using anything else.
Thanks for a great decade!

Why, oh why, didn’t I make the switch sooner?! Honestly, the mooncup is THE BEST purchase I have ever made. I’ve been using mine for three days now and I am totally in love. I can’t explain how bizarrely empowering it is to wear a Mooncup. It feels fantastic and is great for keeping track of what’s happening with your period. I’ve been lucky that me and my mooncup have just sort of clicked – I did have to trim the stem (no drama) but since then, it’s so comfortable!! I’ve had THE BEST nights sleep on a period that I have ever had! Just try it, you won’t be sorry. I’ll never never go back to tampons. The difference is just remarkable – I can’t stop telling people about my mooncup and how amazingly brilliant it is! I’m actually enjoying my period and I can’t wait for the next! Big smiles all round – thanks Mooncup!! ❤️

Hi, I started using a mooncup about four years ago and it’s really changed my relationship with my period.
Initially I saw them in the shops and would tentatively pick one up and wonder how it would fit and what the logistics would be – it just seemed a bit daunting. A while later a friend spoke to me about how great they were and I think this is all I needed to tip me into buying one!
It took a couple of cycles to get used to fully but it was pretty straight forward for me. Instead of seeing my blood as a waste product and something that must be hidden at all costs, I now monitor my period and body in a different way as you can see the subtle changes that go on throughout.
I think every young girl should be given them in schools and that they are the future!

I got you mooncup when I was 14 and I’m 20 now. It has been a really stable support through all of my periods for the past 6 years. Starting from quite an early age meant that I soon became familiar with my cycle and any squeamishness went immediately. I started off by using some water based lubricant to help insertion but as soon as you get used to it, water works just fine. Two notches on my cup stem and that works well for me. I find I rarely get any cramps at all and I can see my menstrual cycle take place by observing what is emptied from the cup. I can insert the mooncup if I know I am about to start my period and be comfortable in the knowledge that is isn’t drying me out. Cannot recommend mooncup enough.
