Is the Mooncup Comfortable?
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.

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.

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 💕

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.

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.

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!

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!
