The original vegan silicone menstrual cup.

The Mooncup is a soft, menstrual cup that you can reuse every time you get your period. The Mooncup is a cost-effective, convenient, safe and eco-friendly alternative to disposable tampons and sanitary pads.

Size A is for use by women over 30 and all who have had a vaginal birth.

Made from medical grade silicone; a hypoallergenic alternative to rubber, the Mooncup is suitable for women with sensitive skin or latex allergy.

The Mooncup comes with its own organic fairtrade cotton storage pouch so you can carry it discreetly and hygienically in your handbag.

How to choose your size

There are two Mooncup sizes available. The size you need depends on your age and childbirth history.

Have I given birth? Under 30 yrs 30+ yrs
No B A
Yes, a vaginal birth A A
Yes, by caesarean B A

Mooncup Size A

The Mooncup Size A is 5cm long and has a `stem` to help with removal which can be trimmed if needed.

  • Product dimensions: 111 x 62 x 50mm

How does the Mooncup Menstrual Cup work?

Once the Mooncup is inside, it opens up and forms a light seal with the vaginal wall which holds it in place. It sits lower than a tampon and works by collecting the menstrual blood instead of absorbing it.

The Mooncup can be emptied, rinsed and reinserted every four to eight hours. It can be used safely overnight, when travelling, swimming or exercising. It holds three times more than a regular tampon, so you may find that you need to empty your Mooncup less frequently than you usually replace pads and tampons.

Can you feel the Mooncup Menstrual Cup?

It`s normal to take a few attempts to get used to using the Mooncup, but once inserted correctly, you shouldn`t be able to feel it at all.

  • Mooncup Menstrual Cup - Size A

A reusable, long-lasting 100% silicone menstrual cup that comes with an organic cotton pouch.

Mooncup Size A Usage:

It may take up to 3 cycles to get used to using the Mooncup straight away.

Follow these simple steps:

  • First Use: Make sure to trim the cup

The base of the cup should sit as low as possible in the vagina. As vaginal length varies, the first time you use the Mooncup, you may need to trim the stem to get the best fit for you.

  • Always wash your hands before inserting and removing the Mooncup

Fold the Mooncup and insert the Mooncup by parting the labia and place the cup as low down in the vagina as it will be comfortable sitting. (Lower down than a tampon)

  • Remove and empty

With clean hands, gently squeeze the bottom of the cup to release the seal then slide the cup out. Empty the contents into the toilet. It is recommended to empty it every 4-8 hours.

  • Rinse or wipe and reinsert

Rinse the Mooncup with water or wipe it with a tissue. Fold and reinsert.

Remember, your reusable menstrual cup should last for years. Once youve got it, you wont look back!

How to clean the Mooncup menstrual cup

Always wash hands with soap, before and after handling your Mooncup.

During Period

Wash with water, or mild, non-perfumed soap. Always rinse the Mooncup with water after using soaps as any traces left on the Mooncup may cause irritation.

Changing in public toilets

Try to take a small bottle of water into the toilet cubicle with you. Remove the Mooncup, tip the contents into the toilet bowl and rinse with a small amount of water and re-insert.

If you have not got a bottle of water, then wipe the Mooncup with toilet paper and re-insert.

Clean Mooncup before first use/deep cleaning

Boil it immersed in water for 5-7 minutes (in a pan put aside for this purpose)

Use sterilising solution/tablets. These are commonly used to sterilise baby equipment. Follow the manufacturers guidelines for dilution and soak for the minimum recommended time. Then rinse thoroughly with clean water.

Mooncup whilst travelling

Make sure to use drinking water to clean Mooncup.

Storing Mooncup between periods:

Dry your Mooncup thoroughly and store in the breathable cotton bag provided.

Do not store in a plastic bag or sealed container.

Remove staining on the Mooncup

Soak the Mooncup in sterilising solution/tablets, following the manufacturers guidelines for dilution and soaking for the minimum time.

Use a clean damp cloth or a toothbrush with plenty of sodium bicarbonate and rub it on to the stained area. Once you have cleaned your Mooncup rinse it thoroughly with clean water.


Do not clean the Mooncup in a microwave as doing this may damage the material.

Do not clean the Mooncup in a dishwasher because the detergent may adversely affect the material and/or your vaginal flora.

Do not clean the holes of the Mooncup with a pin.This can tear and damage the material.

Using an IUD/IUS alongside the Mooncup

We know that there are Mooncup users who are happily using their Mooncup alongside an IUD/IUS. However, there have been some instances where an IUD/IUS has become dislodged when using the devices together, possibly due to anatomical factors (e.g. a low cervix), usage issues (e.g. wearing the Mooncup too high) or simply that the IUD/IUS has been naturally rejected by the body; one in twenty IUD/IUS will be expelled, most commonly, in the first 3 months after the IUD/IUS has been inserted. IUD/IUS expulsions happen most frequently during menstruation.

If you are considering using the Mooncup alongside an IUD/IUS you may wish to discuss this with your doctor/nurse/gynaecologist first. If you have decided to use both devices together then please consider the following information:

  • There should always be a space between the Mooncup and the cervix. If you have a low sitting cervix then there may not be enough room for your Mooncup to sit safely and work effectively alongside your IUD/IUS.
  • Remember to place the Mooncup low in the vagina and ensure you have an adequate seal (read more about Mooncup positioning.) It is important to always release the seal before removing a Mooncup.
  • It is important to always release the seal before removing a Mooncup.
  • After each period, check you can still feel the IUD/IUS strings. If you cannot feel them or think that your IUD/IUS has moved or is causing/has caused you pain, use another form of contraception such as a condom until you have had your IUD/IUS checked by a doctor/medical professional.

Mooncup Menstrual Cup - Size A

I got a size A because I`m 34 and have just had a baby. It worked really well. I like that you can cut the grabby thingy off shorter as I need it quite short. I also can`t really comprehend how it makes my periods shorter but it does! I like that I`m saving the planet and my wallet in the long term. Very pleased.

Mooncup Menstrual Cup - Size A

Brilliant product. I decided to try the mooncup after years of the usual sanitary towels but hated the feeling of leaking and sweatiness. I tried tampax for many years but hated the feeling of inserting and removing them if you weren`t in full flow. I can honestly say that I am sooo glad I tried the moon cup. What a difference. After lots of research I decided to but the mooncup. The site is great, it gives lots of advice about the product and how to select the correct size which was spot on. I have been using it for a few years now and I will admit, even though they are great and can be worn even when you think you are about to start right through to the very end, it does take a little while to get used to putting in and taking out. Love it....I now have 2 and looking to buy a third. Saves storage space as I don`t have any products in the box I used to use. Definitely not going back.
So many reasons to try this from environmental to personal. You would be mad not to at least try this product

Mooncup Menstrual Cup - Size A

I`ve been using menstrual cups for just over a year and have been really impressed with them. Needing a larger size cup, I decided to change brand and buy a Mooncup. I`m really happy with my purchase and actually prefer the Mooncup to the previous brand of menstrual cup that I was using.

There is plenty of helpful advice and information on the Mooncup website if you are having any difficulties using it. You could even buy some reusable/washable sanitary pads to wear if you want that extra bit of security.

An excellent environmentally friendly alternative to sanitary towels and tampons.

Mooncup Menstrual Cup - Size A

This is the second Moon Cup I have purchased. So glad I gave it a try the first time, just wish I`d started using one years ago. So much easier especially on my lighter days when I can pretty much forget about it all day. On heavy days, which for me are very heavy, it can be a little trickier so I will wear a pad for peace of mind but this would be the same if I was using tampoms or the moon cup. Easy to use with a bit of practise and I would recommend practising using it before your period to get the technique right!

Mooncup Menstrual Cup - Size A

I LOVE it. Cant believe it has taken me this long to both realise it existed and to build up the courage to try it. There are so many benefits - no waste, no annoying string, no need to carry tampons / pads around, no discomfort inserting dry tampons and most importantly no more leaks! Strangely I feel like I have been liberated, and it is only my second day of using it. I was nervous beforehand, but it is so easy to use; as long as you are not timid about getting anything on your fingers, there is no need to worry. Also feel good for reducing my non-biodegradable waste. Couldnt recommend it more highly, it really has been my best purchase for a very long time!

Mooncup Menstrual Cup - Size A

I really wish I`d started using one of these years ago. I`ve never been able to use tampons but I wanted to find a solution so I could swim while on my period so I thought I`d give a Mooncup a go and I`m honestly kicking myself that it`s taken me to my mid 30s to try it. I`ve had no discomfort and have found it easy to use from start. It`s so much more convenient, no more having to carry spare pads, finding a sanitary bin, no worry about leaks, no more discomfort with pads in warm weather... the list could go on!

Can`t believe I left it so long to try the the mooncup. Went with the advice on the size hoing on my age and method of birth of my daughter and it fits perfectly. I took the chance before my period started to get used to putting it in and removing it to see what works for me. So pleased with it. No more feeling like I`m wetting myself when using towels and no more dry dragging Feeling with tampax. No more worrying if I need to change yet either, or having to carry around products everywhere incase!! Honestly wish I`d done this years ago. And to think I`m helping the environment too!!!!

Mooncup Menstrual Cup - Size A

Be wary of the size advice. I`d start small and go up if needed, unless you`ve had babies, with natural births. This is not easy to use at all to start with. I`ve tried lots of times to put it on, and I`ve come to the conclusion that despite having had a baby (though via a C section) and being over 30, I need the size under. I`ve since seen a friend`s cup, from another brand, and it is smaller. Having said this, another friend had a mooncup and is perfectly happy. As a conclusion, I`d say be prepared for the fact that the first cup you buy may not be the right one for you.

Mooncup Menstrual Cup - Size A

I wanted to give this a try as I found tampons difficult to use after having my children. I was a bit worried it would be messy and fiddly but I love my mooncup. After trimming the stem I found it quite comfortable and easy to put in and take out. It didn`t leave me feeling dry like a tampon and at the end of my period I realised I hadn`t created one bit of waste. Really pleased.

Mooncup Menstrual Cup - Size A

Took a while to get used to, but I wouldn`t go back to tampons! I choose an A as I`m 30+ and have had a vaginal birth but I`m still quite small - when it arrived it looked massive and I could feel it the first couple of times I used it but it just took a few goes to get right - don`t give up - its just like using tampons for the first time. I found the punchdown fold the easiest way to insert. It was tricky to remove at first but you just need to push down and make sure to release the suction.

I had been wanting to try a mooncup for some time. Then after reading how bad for the environment tampons are I decided it was time! So I purchased this one and I can honestly say I will never look back! It is truly amazing. Havent had one leak. Whereas I would always leak with
Tampons (even the super plus flow ones). This for me is the best thing ever! I now weirdly look forward to my period as get to use this. Its worth every penny. Its so comfy when using and cant even feel it there!

I tried another menstrual cup and had nothing but leakage no matter what I tried. I was recommended moon cup by a friend and could actually say its a life changer! The whole of my period there was no leakage and I could even just forget I was on my period. Even survived the intense gym workout with no leaks. I love the fact I can leave it in overnight with out worrying about TSS! Highly recommend

Mooncup Menstrual Cup - Size A

Very honest review here. I wish I`d heard of these years ago. Two reasons for my purchase, environmental and I was looking for a tampon alternative. I have suffered for years with heavy periods, using tampons and pads at the same time and not uncommon for me to change almost every 1&1/2 hour over the first couple of days. I ordered the right size based on very good customer service help at Mooncup. I have had 2 c-sections and am over 30. First attempt was a little fiddly but once relaxed was to easy insert, again same for removal, just getting the knack and relaxing, except when using your pelvic muscles! After a couple of times I`d figured it out. My biggest worry was leakage, which only happened slightly once but after working out how often to empty the cup I had no issues, around every 3&1/2 hours, which for me is a huge improvement. I didn`t use a single tampon this cycle and even used the cup at nightime, and I hardly used any pads. Personally I found the bleeding was over quicker, nowhere near as bad cramping as with a full tampon and no dry/dragging feeling. Absolute life changer for me and definitely recommend trying it. Bodykind was competitively priced and quick service.

Im a convert, was a little worried but mainly got the hang of it for second period. Once youve trimmed the stem you cant feel it and can leave it be for a long time (I realised I didnt need to remove and empty as much as I thought I would). Yes its a bit fiddly to start with but once youve got the knack for insertion, how low to put it and removal its great. Would recommend you have a try if youre considering it, the price here is great too.

Mooncup Menstrual Cup - Size A

This is my second Mooncup, bodykind being the most competitive in price. My reason for first using this was heavy periods, being able to monitor my blood flow and not having embarrassing incidents was great. I have since saved so much money as I was using tampons along with sanitary towels. My friends thought it sounded disgusting,but now a few have purchased themselves after realising the ease and convenience. I have also tried cheaper versions,but they leaked and were a waste of money, will always stick with the Mooncup now.
