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 💕

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!

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 am 41 and just started using a Mooncup 6 months ago. All I can say is wow what a difference! I suffer with heavy periods for a few days of my period and have never had a leak with it. I had cut the stem a bit too short since it was sticking in me originally but have worked out a way to still remove it. In the past I suffered with sores on my ‘bits’ from being sensitive to sanitary towels and dried out from tampons so always dreaded my periods. I didn’t realise this was another option until I saw someone recommend it on Facebook so thought it was worth a try.
I have just started Uni (slightly mature student) and surprised that it’s not advertised there better – and NUS are sending emails about tampons but not these. I guess people may think it’s a hippy thing that’s difficult to use but that’s completely wrong. All periods are messy but this is the most comfortable way to deal with them. My tip is to roll some toilet roll up before removing it to then slowly pour the contents in once you’ve removed it to avoid mess. I am now confident removing it in public toilets.
People find it hard to talk about their periods publicly but really think this should be part of school education to give all options at a young age. I wish I knew when I was younger!

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!

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.
