I have been using the Mooncup for a 1 1/2 years and it is probably one of the best purchases I have ever made. No more worrying about buying and carrying tampons and pads, as long as I have my cup I am all set for my entire period! I have always dreaded that ‘time of the month’ but the Mooncup has made it a lot less hassle. I will never enjoy being on my period, but using a Mooncup means I hardly ever think about it now!

I was so nervous about using my mooncup for the first time. I won’t lie I struggled with removing it the first few times and had some slightly uncomfortable experiences, nothing too horrific though, but now I realise it was worth it. It got easier and easier and now I use it without worry. Although some of my experiences with getting used to it weren’t ideal they weren’t enough to put me off. I agree with another user that it should be stocked in supermarkets alongside the tampons to let people know there is a grenner way. The only thing that bothers me is the website written on the inside of the cup, it makes it that little bit harder to clean but when all is considered the eco friendly little product is a welcome change.

I am a relatively new mooncup user, although I’ve been using washable sanitary pads for some time. If you are finding it tricky to begin with, relaaaax and bear with it – it does get much easier! I am a great believer in taking only what you need and leaving the land as you would like to find it, so am much happier dealing with my own waste in private than expecting the local council to clear up my most personal items for me. Call me picky…but I do step over a number of ‘escaped’ panty products every bin day on my way to my daughter’s school. It’s happened to me in the past and it’s mortifying!We women should be comfortable with our natural processes and be happy to deal with them ourselves. Great product, so comfortable it even feels nice! I will make sure my daughter is aware of the choices available when her time comes.

I bought my mooncup last month and I thought I would put it in the cupboard for a few months whilst I plucked up the courage to use it. I decided to give it a go a month later and I have to say I’m a fan! Despite being a bit worried about how it looked, fear of mess and how to use it, I am really impressed. Can’t believe I didn’t get one earlier. It’s incredibly comfortable and a lot less messy than I thought it would be. I’ve even recommended it to some of my girlfriends.

Very pleased to be using the Mooncup in conjunction with washable pads. I have found it to be comfortable, reliable, and a way of keeping in touch with my natural rhythms.My only minor criticism is that when my flow is very heavy it leaks a little at night. This is easily solved with a washable pad as well, but I don’t wear it alone at night just in case.
I can’t believe that this product is not better known, and I am so pleased not to be creating more landfill with disgusting used tampons ……
Many thanks for a very good product.

I have been using my mooncup for about 6 months now and cannot express enough just how much I love it! I have told many friends about it and I really hope they take the plunge and give it a go. I love the fact that I am no longer contributing to horrible sanitary products in landfill sites and the sea and that I don’t have to pay exorbitant prices every month for disposable products. I also feel cleaner and that my periods aren’t an issue anymore. I have milder PMT than I’ve had for years, less cramps, shorter periods and generally feel better than I ever used to during a period. I trimmed the stem down to almost nothing and have no problems removing the cup – I just make sure I remove it over the toilet bowl so that nothing spills on the floor. I also carry wipes around with me to wipe my hands if out in public. I just wish I had known about the Mooncup years ago instead of reading about it on a tube ad months ago. I urge anyone who is having doubts to give it a go, you won’t regret it!!

THIS IS TO MORGAN!!!
I purchased one of these and it is actually amazing the only problem I have is that I think the B size is still a little too big for me cos when i take it out it hurts the lower area of my vagina because mine has quite a small entrance.
Hope thats proof that these aren’t fake.

I’ve been using your mooncup for a couple of months now and I can honestly say that it’s a great product. Now that I’ve trimmed the stem, it’s completely comfortable to wear. It feels so much better to be nice and clean down there. I think I’m actually in a better mood during my period now that I don’t sit around in messy pads for a week. Thank you.

Well my mooncup arrived on the second day of my period, so I tried it out as soon as i got home.I began having reactions to tampons a few months ago,so it was easy to make the moon cup choice. Was a little akward the first couple of times but like anything you soon get the hang of it and become a pro.
I went to the gym for a 2 hour session and it was a peice of cake! Couldnt feel a thing and no leaking.
I have convinced 2 friends to try it out and im sure word will spread further after that.
Thanks for such a truly great product!
