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’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.

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!

Today is my second day of using mooncup . I’m 41 , and my periods are perfect to live with . No pain , medium bleeding, 3 days only . But the comfort with mooncup cannot compare with pads or tampons. I can’t use second one . I feel pain and big discomfort.
First day was a struggle, because of “installation ” problems . But after many times I’ve tried, I’ve learned to do it with one attempt. At night was feeling really relaxed . Can’t even feel it no more .
Ladies really you should get your own mooncup! It’s cleaner, more comfortable and better for your pocket and most important, good for our planet . Just a thought on the end , why you should have one those dangerous days . Climate change , wars … testimonials of women of war , homeless women about big suffer involving those days because of lack of higene product should make us think. I feel like if anything will happen tomorrow, with mooncup I’m safe .
Let’s change the world of women period.
We safe a lot of money using mooncup . Maybe a promise to yourself buy second one for homeless lady in your town ?
I’m buying one next month .
With menstruation cups we can help girls which are forced to stay at home for few days in a month and can’t attend school. We can make a big difference!
Thank you mooncup !

I always got caught off on my period and never had any pads to spare and always had to run to the shop for them. I had heard of the Mooncup before but was always skeptical if it would work for me as I never really even liked the idea of Tampons. I saw it was being sold in Boots but kept putting off buying it until I went in when I was on my period and decided why the hell not. And I am so glad I did. I no longer am caught off gaurd as I take the little thing with me everywhere so always have it on me in case I start when I’m not expecting to. And saves me lots of money instead of having to buy pads every month. I have been using it for about 4 months now and won’t ever think of going back to pads

Like many others I was a little skeptical about using the Mooncup, but after reading so many rave reviews, I decided to give it a go. I have only been using it for three days but I am never going back to pads or tampons again!
The first couple of times inserting/removing it were a little awkward, but after a few goes I felt like a pro! The Mooncup is comfortable, so much so that I forget I’m wearing it! In the past few days I’ve worn it at the gym and whilst sleeping and have had absolutely no problems! No leaks, no discomfort!
It’s going to save me so much time and money in the long run, no more last minute dashes to the shop for tampons! I also love that is reusable and environmentally friendly. I highly recommend the Mooncup to anyone who has to deal with periods, I wish I’d started using it sooner!

I just switched to a moon cup and I’m glad I did! I feel so much freer! And my bin will be much emptier from now on. I do leak a little, but I’ve only had one period with it so it might be that I have to get used to it, or that I went too long without emptying (but that’s what cloth pads are for!).
It’s interesting to get to know your body more as well. I always thought I bled more than that (TMI?), but it must just look more on a pad. And once I cut three notches off the stem and finally learned how to insert it properly, I couldn’t feel it at all! I could forget I had it in, if I didn’t remind myself!
I like knowing that I’ll never have to buy another pad again, and that I won’t run out :). I worked it out: in a year my mooncup will pay for itself twice. I might donate my stock of disposable pads to a homeless hostel.
They should really be teaching about these and cloth pads in schools, instead of just tampons and disposable pads. 🙂

This product is absolutely fantastic. It’s comfortable, excellent for environment and reusable. You save money, dashing to the shops and emptying the oh-so-gross bathroom bin. I feel ‘cleaner’ and less guilt about adding to landfill ! I completely recommend – 100% – and I hope someone reading this makes the same right choice I did !!

I literally adore this product, I wish I had known about it when I was younger and I could have saved so much money! Its changed my life – I forget I’m on my period 🙂
This is something that needs to be explained in schools – it is the future and is encouraging the world to move forward to a more sustainable future.

I am immensely sorry that I have had decades of tampon and towel use when I could have had a mooncup instead! I’m 43 so hopefully I’ll still get my money’s worth out of it but what a revelation. No hassle to insert (I’ve had kids so that’s probably why), a little trickier to master removing it but after a couple of days I was getting good at it. It is brilliant, I couldn’t feel it, no leaks and miraculously – hugely reduced cramping – I keep waiting for it to really start but it didn’t. It’s also kind of fascinating coming face to face with your period, but nothing worse than you would with tampons or towels so don’t let that put you off.
The absolute best thing for me though was the total lack of landfill waste. My bathroom bin remains empty instead of filling up with discarded products in nappy bags.
I want to tell every woman I know that they need to get one of these, I’m already evangelical about it! It has such potential for women on limited incomes too, would save a fortune over just a few months and never mind the environmental costs. They should be given out free by the NHS – although I’m sure the sanitary product industry wouldn’t like that.
Anyway – thank you Mooncup! You’ve made me a very happy menstruater!
