Will the Mooncup work for heavy periods?

Yes, the Mooncup can work very well for heavy periods (or menorrhagia) because it collects up to three times more menstrual blood than a regular tampon (see Does the Mooncup hold more than a tampon?).

This means that you may not need to empty and reinsert the Mooncup menstrual cup as often as you would have to change a tampon or pad.

If you are concerned that your periods are too heavy then you should talk about this with your doctor or gynaecologist. Remember that the markings on the Mooncup can be used to roughly monitor your flow, which may be helpful information to share at your appointment.
