Mooncup - A healthy alternative to tampons

The Mooncup is a reusable menstrual cup around two inches long and made from soft silicone rubber. It is worn internally like a tampon but collects menstrual fluid rather than absorbing. Unlike tampons the Mooncup is not a disposable product, so you only need to buy one.

The Mooncup will hold 30ml of fluid, which is roughly one third of the average total produced each period. A light seal is formed with your vaginal walls allowing your menstrual fluid to pass into the Mooncup without leakage or odour. You will probably find that you need to empty your Mooncup less frequently than you currently replace towels or tampons.

Why is mooncup better for you and the environment?

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 an 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!

How easy is it to use the Mooncup menstrual cup?

Correctly inserted, the Mooncup is so comfortable that you will forget it exists. It may take a little practice at first as you need to find the angle and position that is right for you.

Once you have perfected it you will be amazed at how simple the Mooncup is to use. You will need to empty, rinse or wipe and reinsert your Mooncup every four to eight hours depending on your flow. The fluid remains inside the cup, and the process is not messy or uncomfortable.

The Mooncup can safely be used overnight and is great for all sports, swimming and travelling.


New & Improved Mooncup

Firstly, and most noticeably, the new Mooncup is whiter in colour. This is a result of the new production process – the Mooncup is still free from any dyes or bleaches, and is still made from the same high quality medical grade silicone.

  • The new Mooncup is produced to ISO 13485:2003 quality standards
  • All lettering and markings in the cup have been smoothed for easier cleaning
  • Extended coverage of the grips to the full length of the stem

Q.
Is it possible/comfortable/safe to have penetrative sex whilst using a mooncup?
A.
We would not advise you have intercourse while your Mooncup is in place.

Q.
How old do you have to be to use the Mooncup? My daughter is 11yrs old. is this too young?
A.
Young girls are physically able to use the Mooncup. It is possible to use the Mooncup from the very first period as our bodies are designed to give birth to full size babies at this time. The more confident that your daughter is about her body the easier

Q.
As the menstrual blood is just collected rather than absorbed, what would happen if you were to go upside down or lay down with your pelvis raised above your body such as doing sports or other activities?
A.
The Mooncup is suitable for night-time use and all forms of sports so there is no need for concern in the doing these activities. Using the Mooncup as a collective device will not create any additional risk than these kind of activities may be associated

Q.
I have very heavy periods, will mooncup be suitable for me?
A.
Yes, the Mooncup works very well with heavy periods. It holds 30mls of menstrual blood, approximately 3 times more than a tampon or sanitary towel.This means you will need to attend to your mooncup less often than when wearing conventional sanitary protec

Q.
I have always suffered with thrush and I find that using the diaphragm contraceptive cap makes this worse. Do you think that the Mooncup will aggravate the thrush too?
A.
Women who have suffered from thrush with tampons have reported an improvement with the Mooncup. The diaphragm is made from latex rubber, and many women have an allergy to latex, even a minor allergy, which may have contributed towards the infections. The

Q.
I'm 17 and am intrested in the mooncup...it sounds really eco friendly and seems a good idea...but isn't it messy to remove it?
A.
The Mooncup forms a seal with the walls of your vagina, so any blood flow is captured in the cup and removing usually means a minimum of mess. The cup should be rinsed once emptied and before replacing it. And boiled between periods.

Q.
Can the Mooncup be safely used with a Coil (IUD)?
A.
There should be no problem with an IUD (coil). Many women have used the 2 together with no problems. Its a good idea to ask your GP/clinic if they can trim the IUD strings to keep them short. You may also like to check your IUD strings periodically to mak

Absolutely fantastic! I had been a bit sceptical because I know someone who tried them and didn't get on but I thought it was worth a try - boy was I right! Why wasn't I told about this option before? I personally found no negatives apart from the noise it makes being inserted and pulled out again, but even then after a couple of goes I managed to avoid this. Despite having to use your hands to insert it I found the whole thing a very clean process as the blood was well contained. I would suggest first time users read as many reviews as possible for tips though as I found that the guidance I found online was much better than that in the booklet provided. For example, the booklet said to tilt the cup to the sides to pull out, but gently wiggling and pulling I found to be a better method with less risk of spillage. The best thing about the Mooncup is its discreetness. I could carry it around in its little bag and no one was any the wiser. Also no need to take up precious handbag space with disposable protection! Overall I am delighted with my Mooncup and look forward to many happy periods together!

I looked into getting the Mooncup for diving, whilst I'm yet to test it in this environment, so far very impressed! Plan to try the local swimming pool to see how it goes but I'm confident after just 24 hours wear that it will be fine.

Instructions were clear, didn't feel the need to look anywhere else online for tips. I can't believe how comfortable and easy it is to use. It looks so much bigger than a tampon but using the folding techniques described, I was fine. I have found the removal fairly easy.

I'm 28, wish I'd started using this years ago! I've not had children so using cup B size.

Really impressed!
