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. A light seal is formed with your vaginal walls allowing your menstrual fluid to pass into the mooncup without leakage or odour. 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.
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.See all Product Description

Going forward, I'm going to refer to any menstrual cup - because there are tons out there (which I hadn't realised when I picked up my first Mooncup at Boots). So if one type doesn't suit you, another might. The reason I'm giving the Mooncup a 3 (any cup for that matter) is because they take time for a lot of people to adjust to. But if you can get used to them, the benefits are huge - putting them up to a 5. They work out a lot cheaper in the long run because they can be re-used for years (some of you will hit the menopause having not needed to buy a replacement!); they avoid the risk of toxic shock; they're environmentally friendly (if that's something you're concerned about); unlike tampons, they can be used before your period starts - so are a great safety barrier; they fantastic if you're travelling; and they do work. The reason I started using one (and stop reading if you aren't ready for a TMI moment!) is because my periods had become heavier for some reason and, of a night, I had had a bit of fallout. Since using a cup, this has never happened. So those are just some of the plus-points.Read more ›
I want to preface this review by saying that I was driven to write this review to help women like me make an objective choice.
Most reviews I read for the Mooncup wax lyrical about how environmentally friendly they are and how they prevent sanitary waste in landfill and blah blah eco-warrior type comments.
There is a perception that the Mooncup is a 'hippy' thing that only eco-warriors and activist Vegans wear. As it happens, the only woman I felt confident enough to discuss my choice with was, in fact, an Activist Vegan, and this made me sad: Sad that in this modern age, something that happens every single month is so scarcely discussed and so few women have possession of all the facts and know all of their options!
I wanted to write this review from the perspective of your average, everyday woman. Whilst I care about the environment and recycle diligently, I'm by no stretch of the imagination any kind of eco-warrior, 'hippy', or free-bleeding feminist activist. I'm an average woman who loves leather handbags, works in an office, loves IT, gaming, gardening and my pets.
When I was a teenager, the mooncup was mentioned, briefly, in passing. Our sanitary options were presented as 'Pads and Tampons'. Many MANY women I know have no idea what a menstrual cup even IS, let alone even CONSIDER using one. So if, like me, you are trying to find actual USEFUL reviews, I hope this will help you.
So what prompted me to start looking at the Mooncup in the first place? Comfort. I've reached my 30's - that's over 15 years of monthly menstruation - having never comfortably been able to use Tampons. I can literally count the number of times I have successfully and comfortably used a Tampon on one hand.Read more ›
-You don't feel it. It's the truth, you forget you're with your period!
-More ecological and educated choice.
-One-time purchase and you're good for years of sanitary protection, so more economic choice.
-You get more familiarized with your own body and fluids, so it can contribute in a positive way for your self-esteem.
-If well inserted (i.e., if there is a seal) there are absolutely no leaks. Yay for white pants with your period!
-Totally safe material, no risks for your health.
-You have to be "at ease" and to know your body to be comfortable enough to try this. For the first times, you'll have to insert, remove and re-insert a couple of times just to be sure the stem is the right length, so you'll need to "feel" with your finger, well, inside you. And this I know it's not everyone who is comfortable enough to do so. Not a problem, but maybe you should rethink your choice. If (like me) your vaginal canal is long, this can mean you'll have to insert your fingers well up high to grab the base of the cup, and this is something to consider.
-The removal process can be kind of awkward. You'll have to press the base of the cup while you pull from one side, and then the other. And you'll have to be relaxed.Read more ›
