Description

New and improved Menstrual cup

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 B is for use by women under 30 who have not 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 B

The Mooncup Size B is 3mm smaller than size A (5cm) and has a `stem` to help with removal which can be trimmed if needed.

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.

Why is Mooncup better for you and the environment?

Contents

  • Mooncup Menstrual Cup - Size B

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

Ingredients

100% medical grade silicone.

Usage

Mooncup Size B 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 you’ve got it, you won’t look back!

Notes

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 manufacturer’s 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 manufacturer’s 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.

Contraindications

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.

I thought it would be painful and a bit of a nuisance to place and remove. I couldn’t have been more wrong. It is really easy to use, you can’t feel it at all when it is in place. It is easy to remove and the best part is it’s great for the environment. It also saves you so much money. I don’t have any negatives to say about this at all.

So when I first came across this cup I thought why and how on earth would anyone use this. A couple of months ago I started a new journey in my life of trying to be more eco friendly, sustainable, vegan, cruelty free and try to help the world and its condition. When I first brought it I was a bit scared as I never used a tampon and always a pad. I tried it a few times over a couple of weeks when I wasn’t on my period. It was very difficult at first and painful, it took time, I waddled around and felt frightened that it would be sunk in haha! Then a month ago when I started my period I tried it properly. I did it in the morning and took it out at night. I didn’t have to worry about it as I knew I wouldn’t be heavy because I have an implant in at the moment. I have pads that I’m not even using because I much prefer the cup. The cup is more eco friendly, sustainable, less maintenance, painful when inserting then after is a breeze and just brilliant!

I went for the smaller size even though I am over 30. I've never had a vaginal birth and have strong core muscles due to yoga and swimming. Takes a bit of getting used to, but I would not go back to disposable sanitary products. Mooncup feels much cleaner and more convenient, as well as being better for the environment. Highly recommend every woman try this!

I went straight for the smaller size even though I'm over 30 and have not had a vaginal birth, it fit easily, was comfortable to use all day at work, removing it takes a bit of practice as it wants to stay open so you have to try to go slow and keep it folded to make it easier, after 2 days I got a technique down and am very suprisingly happy with the product.

I was excited to try this after reading all the good reviews but what a disappointment!! I've used it for 2 days and it has leaked so badly I may as well have not been using it. I tried all the tips in the instructions to ensure it was in the right place and fully open but it has been useless at containing my period.
Only plus is that you can't feel it once it's in but if you have heavy periods then this is no use whatsoever.

One of the best products I've ever bought. It's so much easier to use and get used to than I thought. I no longer dread having my period because I don't even notice that its my time of the month when I'm using my Mooncup. I could never go back to using tampons or pads after using it. I couldn't recommend it enough!

I wanted to find something that I could use comfortably for sport and even though I felt very skeptical because I never used tampons I hated them. But I gave it a try and it made such a huge difference! I did yoga, pole dance, aerial hoop and running and it never leaked and felt super safe and comfortable, yay!

I was skeptical about this product but after using it i am 100% converted and have been recommending it to my friends. It was easy to insert and my period was shorter (perhaps due to the chemicals present in regular tampons which apparently lengthen the duration of your bleed??). For those thinking about converting I highly recommend it

Took no time at all to get used to this little thing, so so easy to use. Can easily leave it in all day meaning you barely even feel like you are on your period. Amazing. I would recommend to anyone, it isn't gross and its so easy, you don't notice that its in after a minute. So glad I decided to give it a go, I don't think I would ever use tampons or pads again. Oh that's the other bonus once you've got the positioning of this cup sorted you don't need to use pads either, I tested how secure it was by running, climbing and swimming with it... not a problem at all!

Everyone needs this cup. Granted, everyone's sizes will vary but the quality of this cup is the best I have ever seen. The silicone is top grade and the suction seal is perfect. Slightly harder to remove than my Me Luna due to the lack of a ring, but it does have some very good grips on. As stemmed cups go it's by far the best for grip on removal. However I would only recommend this for more experienced users as it is a powerful suction and can be tricky to remove.

Wow. I have never before felt so free from the burden of having a period. I can swim, run, climb, dance naked..., all without worry of bleeding or anything showing.

It took me four periods before I felt confident, but I am now so confident that I don't even bother carrying any other 'equipment'. Even if it takes some getting used to, do persevere, as once it clicks it will just be amazing. You'll never look back. I call mine Mrs Moony, and she and I have been on many adventures together. The most messy, clean-feeling product I have ever used. When away recently and my period came unexpectedly I was gutted to use tampons - even more gutted to realise how icky they make you feel. I feel so much cleaner wearing my mooncup than I ever have on a period before, and now I don't even mind being on one because it affects me now in no negative way!

Revolutionary, every girl should be taught about this in school.

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!

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!
