The Mooncup

About the Mooncup

The Mooncup is a reusable menstrual cup, around two inches long and made from soft medical grade silicone. It is worn internally a lot lower than a tampon but, while tampons and pads absorb menstrual fluid, the Mooncup collects it. This means it doesn’t cause dryness or irritation, and also that it collects far more (three times as much as a ‘super-absorbent’ tampon’!). Because the Mooncup is reusable, you only need one so it saves you money and helps the environment, too.

The Mooncup is designed to be folded and inserted into the vagina, then removed, rinsed and reinserted up to every 8 hours. A light seal is formed with your vaginal walls, allowing menstrual fluid to pass into the Mooncup without leakage or odour. This seal is released for removal, allowing you to empty the contents, rinse or wipe and reinsert. Comfortable, convenient and safe: the Mooncup can be used overnight and when travelling, swimming or exercising.

I tried Mooncup after seeing an advert on a toilet door advertising space. It is without a doubt one of the best things I have ever done. At first I did have reservations, but decided to give it a go… the first day I used Mooncup, I went out for the day to a Go Ape centre (aerial obstacle courses, tree climbing, crawling around, zipwires etc). I had no problems whatsoever. No leakage, no discomfort at all – it was simply brilliant. I did wear a sanitary towel as well, to be safe, but it was completely dry and clean when I went to the bathroom several hours later! I’ve been using it ever since. I can’t recommend this product enough – I don’t understand why it isn’t available more in supermarkets or advertised more. It’s so clean, safe, environmentally friendly, comfortable and generally brilliant! I would recommend it to anyone. N.B. I would say you need to be comfortbable with your own body and willing to insert the Mooncup manually – maybe people who are virgins or slightly more reserved may not feel comfortable with this. But anyone who has had sex or is comfortable with their own body and willing to give it a go – I say go for it. Best. Decision. Ever.
