The Mooncup is a reusable menstrual cup made from soft medical grade silicone. It is worn internally like a tampon but collects menstrual fluid rather than absorbing it. Unlike tampons the Mooncup is not a disposable product, so you only need to buy one.
Size A is recommended for women who have given birth vaginally or who have had a caesarean section and are aged 30 or above. Size A measures 46mm in diameter and 50mm in length. Both sizes have a pull stem 21mm long, which you can trim to the length that is right for you.
Size B is recommended for women who have not given birth or who have had a caesarean section and are aged below 30. Size B measures 43 mm in diameter and 50mm in length. Both sizes have a pull stem 21mm long, which you can trim to a comfortable length.
The Mooncup is packaged in a box and comes with a drawstring cotton pouch and an instruction book.
The Mooncup company headquarters has been successfully assessed and certified as meeting the requirements of the ISO 13485:2003 and EN ISO 13485:2012 standard for the manufacture and distribution of menstrual cups.

The mooncup size B was my first ever cup (I managed to use it while still a virgin by the way). But overall I wouldn't recommend it as the rim is quite firm and pops open with lots of force so I always found insertion and removal uncomfortable. I experienced some leakage after giving birth so went up to size A as recommended but found it too big and felt pressure on my bladder and even though I'd had a baby, insertion and removal were still uncomfortable. This cup forms a strong seal.Reviewer: Lois from Doncaster
I love this cup. It feels top quality. The feel of the silicon, the holes that are higher on the inside of the cup than the outside to maximise capacity, the finish and the shape make this cup feel premium. I find it very easy to use and if it had higher capacity it would be the cup I use the most. However, because of its comparatively low capacity, I don't use this on my heavy days. For light to moderate flow it works really well and only ever leaks if it over fills. I find some cups with 46mm rims uncomfortable but I can't feel my Mooncup at all. I had to trim a few mm off the stem but I do that with most of my cups. It arrived very quickly and I'm happy with it. I would have given it 5 stars if the capacity was higher.Reviewer: Lizzie from London
I can see why so many people consider this their least favourite menstrual cup - it's pretty brutal in terms of insertion and general comfort. If you're a beginner, I'd definitely avoid this cup.Reviewer: jacinnz from new zealand
it's cheap, clean and easy to use.Reviewer: lynsey from somerset
what i love about my mooncup:
it's cleaner - despite being nice and white tampons aren't actually sterile. the mooncup can be sterilised and i've had messier hands using tampons, when the previous one was full or my period has just started, with the mooncup - i can pre-empt it and put it in before i start bleeding making my vaginal walls clean and free from blood.
it's healthier - it's made from medical grade silicone (like what's used for heart valve replacements, not breast implants) and doesn't contain any chemicals or cancer-causing by-products, nor does it leave anything behind (fibres) nor is there and risk (or if there is it's miniscule) of TSS.
it's "greener" - one cup can last up to 10 years (and actually probably longer than that but that's what they say) and saves thousands of disposable items ending up in landfill or our oceans.
it's cheaper - 1 mooncup costs around £20, even with a light flow using only 1 cheap £1 pack of disposable san pro per cycle, you would get your money back in about a year and a half, of course using more expensive brands more of them means you'd be saving much quicker.
it feels nicer - tampons hurt me, my cervix sits too low during my period or something so once they got too "full" and slippery they'd feel like they were being pushed out, super ones were never fully comfortable anyway and they hurt if i tried to take them out too soon too. with the mooncup, if my cervix is particularly low, it can sit inside the cup and there's no such thing as too soon to take it out, it can be taken out empty with no pain. and i'm not all slippery and yucky feeling like with pads. plus i can't even feel it when it's in.
i can be prepared - i can put my mooncup in if i even think my period is due, i can use it whenever i want to with no worries of pain on taking it out empty or risk of tss (there is none, or next to no risk of tss with menstrual cups)
it last longer per use - i don't need to empty it as often as i would have had to change a tampon, partly because it isn't absorbing all my normal moisture and secretions but also because it actually holds a fair amount (the larger one, size A holds up to 30ml), i manage perfectly fine with a heavy flow (i had one cycle of 155ml in 3-4 days of proper loss)
i know how much i'm losing - i always suspected i had heavy periods but with my cup i can look and actually see how many ml i've lost, there are measurement markings on the cup.
i feel better - i have almost no period pain, even before i had my first baby, switching to my mooncup gave me less period pain than i had with tampons, with tampons i would have needed feminax and ibuprofen as well as some heat just to manage the pain, now i'm sometimes ok with nothing at all, sometimes some heat and occasionally a paracetamol or 2.
Buying my mooncup was the best decision i ever made, and i will be buying my daughter a cup when she reaches the age of needing one - it folds the same size of a tampon (not a small one admittedly) for insertion so teens can easily use one also.Reviewer: Valerie from FRANCE
The mooncup has been my first menstrual cup 15 years ago. I still use it. It is durable, very soft, easy to insert, confortable.. but it's not for very heavy flows. I like it. It's a good value.
Valérie (France)Reviewer: Francesca from Italy
I use it since almost 2 years, in many circumstances I found it really useful, for example when you are outside for many hours or on the beach. But not only, my "period" has got better during the night too, now is more safe and "dry". Besides it seems that che cycle lasts less. The reasons that brought me to use the mooncup is the environmental and money saving. The only problem I had at the begin it was learn how to insert, but practicing everyone can do it ;) .
