WINNER: Ethical Consumer Best Buy Award
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!
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 have used a Mooncup in the past but sadly it became too difficult to use due to my health. Having sorted out some of those issues I had no hesitation when I replaced this.
It may seem like a lot of fuss and maybe seem more messy than alternatives but I have found this not to be true.
Made the change about two years ago now and really don´t know why I feared it before! It is easy and for a person like me who travels a lot a big help as it is more conveniend! And no stress about having not enough tampons and need to look for a shop- and know my body better. Very trustworthy even for sports and swimming and no string in the gym showers!
Not to think about all the chemicals that are in tampons to collect all that blood and about all that waste I would produce otherwise...
worth reading through their webpage if considering, or if hesitating!
And if you are sporty but above 30 and had no kids, still have the small size!!
