The Mooncup is a reusable menstrual cup made from soft silicone. The Mooncup is worn internally and collects menstrual fluid, rather than absorbing it like a tampon. Unlike tampons, the Mooncup is fully re-usable and with the correct use, can last for years.
The Mooncup holds around 30ml of fluid, which is roughly one third of the average total fluid produced each period. The Mooncup creates a light seal around your vaginal walls, allowing the menstrual fluid to pass into the Mooncup without leaking.
Because it contains no bleaches, deoderants or gels, the Mooncup does not interfere with your vaginal health, and has no link with toxic shock syndrome. The Mooncup is made from a special medical grade non-allergic silicone. It will not cause irritation and is suitable for women with sensitive skin or allergies.
Easy to use:
The Mooncup is so comfortable that you will forget it is there. It may take a little practice in using at first, but once you have perfected it you will be amazed at how simple the Mooncup is to use. The Mooncup requires to be emptied, rinsed and reinserted every 4 to 8 hours, depending on your flow. The Mooncup can be used safely overnight and is ideal for all sports.
The Mooncup is available in two sizes:
- Size A is recommended for women who have given birth vaginally or who have had a caesarean section and are aged 30 years or over
- Size B is recommended for women who have not given birth or who have had a caesarean section and are aged below 30 years
Please ensure that you select the correct size, as Mooncups cannot be exchanged for hygiene reasons.
Mooncups come with a handy drawstring storage pouch and full instructions for use.
