The Mooncup Reusable Menstrual Cup is an innovative and eco-friendly alternative to tampons. Made from a soft silicone, it is designed by women, for women. Reusable, portable, and cost-saving. Suitable for women with allergies.

It is worn internally like a tampon, but collects menstrual fluid rather than absorbing it. Unlike a tampon, the Mooncup is not disposable, so you only need to buy one making the Mooncup a great alternative to disposable sanitary products.

Why is it better?

The Mooncup menstrual cup contains no bleaches, deodorisers or absorbency gels. It does not interfere with your healthy vaginal environment, nor has it been associated with toxic shock syndrome.

The smooth surface of the Mooncup allows the mucus membranes of your vaginal wall to continue their essential cleansing and protective functions. The Mooncup does not absorb your body's natural defence mechanisms and will not deposit fibres in your vaginal wall.

For your safety the Mooncup is made from a special medical grade non-allergic silicone. Silicone is derived from silica which is one of the most abundant minerals on earth.

It will not cause irritation and is suitable for women with sensitive skin, thrush, eczema or allergy. The Mooncup can be cleaned in the same way as baby equipment: with sterilising fluid, or by boiling for five minutes in an open pan of water. Unlike pads and tampons the Mooncup menstrual cup is reusable, eliminating the need to carry bulky spares. With proper care your Mooncup will last for several years.

Imagine the towels and tampons that you will be disposing of in landfill sites during those years!

Sizes

The Mooncup is available in two sizes.

Size A measures 46mm in diameter and 50mm in length. Size A is recommended for women who have given birth vaginally or are aged 30 or above.

Size B measures 43 mm in diameter and 50mm in length. Size B is recommended for women who have not given birth, or have given birth by caesarean section, and are aged below 30.

Both sizes have a pull stem 21mm long, which you can trim to the length that is right for you.

I can't praise the mooncup enough. This feels like a much healthier way to deal with periods, and i feel very smug when i come to the end of a period and haven't had to use any tampons. Now to convert my daughters...

I have used mooncup for over 7 years and have introduced 3 sisters as well. It can take a bit of getting your head round at first, especially for the more squeamish, but it is worth it. Not only is it healthier (tampons and pads are not sterile, they're bleached) and cleaner, but it also made me appreciate my body's monthly cycle and become a part of it and accept it rather than view it as inconvenience.

I have been using a mooncup for about 5 years. my partner drew my attention to it as an option when I was complaining about tampons! I was very sceptical, not least because it meant paying out £17 plus before I even knew what it be like for me. BUT it's great. I highly recommend it, I have saved saved money, reduced my impact on the environment AND it feels so much more comfortable and healthier. I was susceptible to thrush in the past but have had no problems since I've been using a mooncup. Take the plunge! Get one, you won't regret it!
