Can I use the Mooncup when I have thrush (Candida)?

We do not advise that you use your Mooncup menstrual cup during a Candida (thrush) infection, or while you’re being treated. You can start to use your Mooncup again once all treatment is completed and you are clear of symptoms.

Before you use your Mooncup again, make sure you thoroughly clean it by soaking it in sterilising solution. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for dilution, and soak for the minimum recommended time, then rinse thoroughly with clean water.

It is important to always ensure that the Mooncup is free from any cleaning product or soap residue before you insert it, as traces of these left on the Mooncup may trigger an imbalance of the vaginal flora or change the Ph level of your vagina.

Rinse your Mooncup thoroughly under water after cleaning, and if you need to use soap, use simple, non-perfumed soaps.
