I bought a Mooncup a few months ago after a ton of research and I’ll never look back. It is so comfortable and easy to use once you’re used to it (which for me was within a few days). Now when I have my period I nearly always forget I’m even on because it’s such a hassle free experience! Also it is so nice knowing I am no long contributing to the detrimental amount of waste sanitary products unnecessary cause. Could not recommend this company and product more.

As a virgin when I first used a mooncup I was a bit shocked when I saw the size of even the small one and wondered how on earth I was going to get it inside me! I’m not going to lie…I really struggled to insert it. It took me weeks of practice and numerous emails to the mooncup nurse, who was so helpful and supportive and told me to take my time and not to rush and reassured me. When I finally got my mooncup in, it really changed my life. Before when I had my period I was always watching the clock so as not to miss the time I next needed to change. With my mooncup even on my heaviest days I don’t need to clock watch. Emptying it once or twice during the day (as well as an am and pm shower) is fine, often just in the shower is plenty. I’ve found this the easiest way because over the toilet sometimes I fumble the cup and little splashes over my clothes isn’t the best look. I’m not very nimble fingered so I make it easy on myself when I can. Having said that emptying over the toilet isn’t a big deal really, I just prefer the shower. I can’t imagine my life without my mooncup. I think I’ll even miss it when I’ve gone through the menopause!

I’ll admit I was a little skeptical when I first started using the Mooncup. As someone who’s always suffered with heavy periods I was worried this little cup simply couldn’t cope with what my body had to throw at it, so much so I used precautionary sanitary pads alongside it, such was my confidence. I need not bother! Not once have I leaked whilst using the Mooncup, even when i’ve gone running and swimming, it’s never let me down. It’s such a relief going to sleep and knowing I’ll wake up clean – I have far more restful nights now, which no doubt helps with the PMS!
I’ve saved money and worry on not having to buy a range of different products to get me through my period – this one cup covers me throughout! And it’s great that you can use it before you’ve actually started, unlike tampons, so you’re never caught short!
I would recommend anyone try the Mooncup if you’re looking to take control of your periods.

I’ve been contemplating using a menstrual cup for a long time… And it was only when my sister told me that she’s been using one for about a year that I finally took the plunge and bought a mooncup for myself. Oh my lord, why did I not do this sooner?? I was really quite nervous about using one… “what if I can’t get it out!!” was the main thing that ran through my head… But reading all the testimonials and the information leaflet that comes with it… I did it! I did a couple of “dry runs” before leaving it in for the day so that I could practice removing the cup and I scared myself – I couldn’t reach it!! Absolute nigthmare and exactly what I was worried about! But, I relaxed, and gently pushed the cup down like the information leaflet says to and… Hey Presto, it was easy as that!! So I did it again to make sure, and it was fine! All that worrying and wasting sanitary products for nothing!
Ladies, this is immense… The environmental impact alone is worth doing this! I’m an adventurous person, and going camping/on holiday/long kayak trips/everything, is made so much easier and simpler by this one little cup. No more over packing sanitary products and wondering what to do with the used ones whilst you’re out in the middle of nowhere! Genius! People need to spread this, not just on these testimonials, but EVERYWHERE! It shouldn’t be a taboo topic to talk about – I’ve shared it with my other sister and friends now and they’re trying it also!!
No reports of leakage so far… But I’m willing to accept small leakages and take a reusable pantyliner just in case.
If you didn’t guess… I’m so happy with this product! 😀

After being initially dubious about the mooncup, having concern with possible leakage & comfort, I can now say I’d never go back to tampons! With an ever growing concern for the environment and not to mention the health risks with tampons, the mooncup is the way to go. It’s comfortable, there’s no leakage and there’s no dryness that I used to get from tampons when coming to the end of my menstrual cycle!

I received my Mooncup today and I’m in my last two days of my period, ok initially I was a little nervous bet yet so excited to try it out. I’ve researched so much about the product and how it has changed peoples lives… I can definitely see why!! I LOVE IT! I am so surprised that I seem to have mastered it from the 1st time and I cannot fault it. Had no leaks, although I am still wearing pads just in case as it’s my first cycle using it and I’m also using them up. So far so good and I’m amazed that I can’t even feel it. I’m a fairly active person and been to the gym today, not felt it once! It’s amazing that I will never have to buy those expensive tampons or those gastly pads ever again!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE, thank you Mooncup 💕

Wow – I was hesitant to swap to a Mooncup to start with, but after a couple of practises it is easily the best thing I’ve ever bought! Saving the planet and saving money! 10/10

i am a full day into using a cup for the first time, it was an impulse buy i must admit. but instantly felt so much cleaner and comfy. it was so simple. cant believe after a day i never want to go back! thank you Mooncup xx

I recently purchased my second Mooncup after using my first one for about 10 years. I have always had extremely heavy periods. On my heavier days I use my cup with a cotton pad and I’m good to go. Traveling with my mooncup has been so convenient. I don’t have to carry a bunch of supplies with me or go on the hunt for stuff because I’ve been surprised by my period. I love this product and the new design has made it even better. It is so much easier to insert and remove. Thank you for such a great product.

Chanthou – 19th January 2018

I’ve been using my mooncup for the past 4 months and I couldn’t be more satisfied and happier! Every time I have my period I think about the times I didn’t know about its existence and how I wish I had known it before. It’s practical, easy to use and comfortable. A money saver and clean. If you’re comfortable with your body then its the best option for the terrible period days.
