Without sounding dramatic, using a mooncup has actually changed my life! 1 year after first using one, I can’t imagine ever going back to tampons and pads. It took a couple of uses to get used to but now I find it so comfortable and easy to use. Being better for the environment is a huge bonus. I recommend a mooncup to everyone now!!

Back in 2007 I saw an advert for a mooncup on the back of a toilet door in a youth hostel in Canada, I was intrigued but didn’t go any further than that.

Last year I decided I had had enough of pads and tampons, firstly due to the crazy amount of waste they produce with chemical processes and plastics and secondly I always felt a bit dirty and uncomfortable.

WHY oh WHY did I not try this sooner. Yes its a bit of a faff and takes some time to get use to it but this small fry in comparison with the benefits, its blooming brilliant. Have a go its a game changer.

The best change I’ve ever made!
So comfortable, it’s so strange when you 1st use it because it’s different but in a great way. After using tampons for years you realised just type uncomfortable they where. Never going back. There is never a worry when wearing one. Please get one you will never be disappointed ❤️

Having had my mooncup for almost a year, I put it to the ultimate test last night when I went to a white themed party… I wore my mooncup and warned my girlfriends to keep a lookout for the slightest discolouration in my white jumpsuit. I checked a couple of times throughout the night to find absolutely nothing! Not even a leak. The mooncup is a lifesaver, I felt so comfortable and confident and by the end of the night had forgotten I was even on my period!

I bought my mooncup over 2 years ago when I moved into a house of boys and didn’t want to leave used tampons in the bathroom bins, and I can honestly say I’ve never looked back. I didn’t believe the hype but it was so true – no more leaks, no more tampons, no more anxiety about whether or not I’ve bled through my tampon already. Every woman should own a mooncup.

I have been using the same mooncup for about 15 years, through the the birth of two children, and am so pleased to see menstrual cups being talked bout more these days.
I recently misplaced mine following a trip abroad and when my period came I I couldn’t locate.it I had to return to tampons. It was dreadful! I remember tampons only needing changing every 6-8 hours but this time I was changing (and leaking) every 2-3 hours. The fussy packaging and discomfort was annoying and I was so pleased two days later to find my mooncup.
As long as I change.my cup every morning and evening, usually in the shower, there.is no mess, no fuss and I forget I even have my period.
I will never go back to tampons again!!

I am 16 years old and I started using the Mooncup on my 13th birthday. I thought it would be difficult but it was very easy to use and did not hurt a bit.
My favourite way of emptying is in the shower. I empty it down the plughole and wash it in warm water with Dettol soap or just a little anti-dandruff shampoo which keeps it sweet. Being wet, it is very easy to put back in.
A friend tried a cheap one from China. Because the silicone was soft it collapsed inside her and leaked. Also the sizes can be different and the cup may not fit as well. There really is no substitute for the UKs own Mooncup!
The Mooncup is always a perfect fit and I cannot even tell if it is there, it is just as if it is a natural part of my body.
Ideal for sport, no string to show in changing rooms or communal showers! And long-lasting and leak-free, it lasts me all day whatever I am doing!.
Now my 10-yr-old sister wants one but Mum is not so keen on that idea!

Suzie- 20th December 2017

I’ve always suffered from extremely heavy periods ever since I started menstruating age 9. I was always terrified of tampons, so made do with sanitary towels until six months ago when I discovered I was getting sores “down there” whenever I wore one! My cousin showed me her mooncup and how to use it, and afterwards I went online and bought it.

It was very awkward to put in at first, but after cutting the stem and doing a few “dry runs”, I’ve figured out – mostly! – the angle to put it in.

The difference has been amazing. I no longer feel uncomfortable on my period, unless I haven’t inserted the cup properly, and I forget it’s there! It’s so easy to clean between insertions, and very easy to sterilise. I worked out I have saved about £50 already, and it’s so unobtrusive – I can still wear my pretty pants if I don’t want to wear my granny knickers.

Definitely recommend the mooncup: it’s cheap in the long run, requires minimum effort and the amount of mess isn’t at all bad so long as you don’t mind a little bit of blood on your fingers when you’re first figuring out what angle works best!

After about a decade on the mini pill with no periods whatsoever, I was dreading the inevitably horrifically painful ‘first period’ after switching up my contraceptive methods. I did a LOT of reading about what to expect and stumbled across the many positive testimonials about the Mooncup. I thought I’d give it a go. I am SO pleased I did. It is super easy to use – I can’t feel it at all. No leaks. No drama. And much less period pain than I used to get many years ago with tampons. It really is strangely empowering and I feel like I’m more in tune with my body than I have been in years. Best decision I’ve made.

I have just my Mooncup about a year and it has genuinely revolutionised my period. Its so much easier than using tampons and pads which for one I always found horribly uncomfortable but also I had to change mine ever 2-3 hours but the mooncup lasts most of the day. I wear my cup at night too as I always used to find my flow quite light when sleeping meaning I would often be wasting a pad overnight and my period would resume in the morning. Not only this but I swim regularly and forgot I am on my period but a tampon used to be very soggy and start falling out. Thanks for being a life changing product that I can use for years to come! I only started using this at 16 and I am glad I didnt wait any longer.
