Hi, I started using a mooncup about four years ago and it’s really changed my relationship with my period.
Initially I saw them in the shops and would tentatively pick one up and wonder how it would fit and what the logistics would be – it just seemed a bit daunting. A while later a friend spoke to me about how great they were and I think this is all I needed to tip me into buying one!
It took a couple of cycles to get used to fully but it was pretty straight forward for me. Instead of seeing my blood as a waste product and something that must be hidden at all costs, I now monitor my period and body in a different way as you can see the subtle changes that go on throughout.
I think every young girl should be given them in schools and that they are the future!

I got you mooncup when I was 14 and I’m 20 now. It has been a really stable support through all of my periods for the past 6 years. Starting from quite an early age meant that I soon became familiar with my cycle and any squeamishness went immediately. I started off by using some water based lubricant to help insertion but as soon as you get used to it, water works just fine. Two notches on my cup stem and that works well for me. I find I rarely get any cramps at all and I can see my menstrual cycle take place by observing what is emptied from the cup. I can insert the mooncup if I know I am about to start my period and be comfortable in the knowledge that is isn’t drying me out. Cannot recommend mooncup enough.

I really can’t thank you enough for such a fantastic product. It took a couple of tries to get used to inserting and removing, but now I will never go back! My period pain is reduced and I feel so much cleaner and more comfortable during my period. I honestly forget I am wearing the mooncup because it is so comfortable! Really glad that it’s good for the environment and now I don’t dread my period like I used to!

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. 🙂

I have been known to exaggerate at times, but not this time. Having just used my Mooncup for the first time I can say without a shadow of a doubt that this product is a game changer in the world of menstruation!
I am also soooo annoyed that I didn’t start using it 10 or more years ago, I could have saved a lot of pain and misery as well as do my bit for the environment.
I think I had the same reservations that possibly many people do about using it but to be honest as soon as I mastered it and realised it is not at all as messy and uncomfortable as I had anticipated it being, I knew I would never be going back to tampons and pads. At times I genuinely forgot I was wearing it and I could never have said that before.
Thank you Mooncup for making my monthly misery much more bearable and I’m just sorry I didn’t do this a long time ago.

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 heard of the Mooncup about 4 or 5 years ago but I was a little put off in my somewhat immature schoolgirl mindset. I’ve never liked using pads because I find them uncomfortable, and I was always terrified of leaking whenever I used a tampon. Coming to university I thought it was about time I actually did something about how much I hated tampons, so I ordered a Mooncup on a whim, just to try it out. The first time I used it typically did not go too smoothly but I persevered and I’m so glad I did! I have never worried about leaking since using the Mooncup. I’ve not been embarrassed to be on my period since, taking a bag or a tampon stuffed up my sleeve to the loo every time I’ve gone, just in case. And only now since not using disposable sanitary products do I realise how many I threw away! I have recommended it to so many friends, and genuinely tell them the Mooncup changed my life: my heart no longer sinks when I get my period because I know I can just carry on as normal.

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.
