I’ve been using a Mooncup for over 10 years now and always loved it. When I went to get it out last night I discovered it was missing (very weird – I think I must have thrown it out by accident!)so had to use emergency sanitary pads I had hanging around. I’ve just spent a very uncomfortable night and morning until I could nip to Boots to buy another one. Now I’m restored, I feel so brilliant that I wanted to write and express my profound gratitude that I don’t have to go around feeling so bad every month as people who usually wear pads must. I just find it’s better in every single way. I never trusted or got on with tampons which used to leak, hurt and cause thrush if you were dry or pads which are so disgusting they just make you feel like you’re wearing a wet nappy. It’s saved me so much money over the years and the embarrassment of buying sanitary products and I don’t feel bad about chucking things away. It’s really a perfect solution so if you’re considering it, please try it.

Best £20 I’ve ever spent! I recently bought the mooncup and have only been using it for 4 days. I have to say that this is the best decision I have ever made. It has changed my life. I’m a broke student so I’m already saving money(happy days) AND I’ve been wearing white panties and white trousers for 4 days without any leakage. Not even a drop. Not even at night. I wish I’d known about this earlier. EVERYBODY WOMAN NEEDS TO INVEST IN A MOONCUP! Don’t hesitate ladies, just buy!

I don’t even know what word to pick about how much I appreciate my mooncup. I was grossed out when I heard about it but decided to give it a try as an alternative. My first day using it and I can’t complain! There was no need to be nervous at all. No leaks, no fuss and no having to run to the bathroom to change every 2 hours. Perfect for my busy day at work and just overall a great buy. Thank you 🙂

I’ve used the Moon Cup overall for around three periods now and I can already say that this is the best decision I’ve made when it comes to periods and my health and financially. For me, once you’ve got a little used to it, it’s much easier and cleaner than pads or tampons. You feel a lot more in tune with your body as you get to know it more and feel more comfortable with it. You save a lot of money also! It feels good to know that I’m not harming my body or the environment!

I’m so sad, since I got my Mooncup I had to forget about all my favourite hobbies:
– worrying about leakage
– feeling unclean and worrying about odour
– spending money on sanitary products
– remembering to take them if I stay over somewhere
– finding ways to dispose of towels
– polluting the environment
– always half thinking about when/where the nearest bathroom will be
– feeling like I want to shower 5 times a day
– enjoying the physical discomfort of tampons and towels
Took less time to get the hang of it than I expected, and now I have, it’s like I don’t even notice my period has come and gone because it was so easy. You spend 2 minutes emptying it and then don’t feel like you’re on your period for the next 8 hours.
I am free!
I hope there is a campaign to get these out to women in need, I would support it 100%.

The last few months I have been plagued with really heavy menstral cycles, so much so I would soak a pad every hour. As I never got on with Tampons I took to sleeping in the bath. Since I discovered Mooncup I have managed to get a good nights sleep! As the cup holds a lot more than a pad and for me has not leaked I can safely say this last 3 days have been the happiest I have been, not to mention well rested. I would recommend this to anyone with heavy periods.

Mooncup changed my life, years of thrush and BV, after changing to using a Mooncup 2 years ago, barely a problem, its so easy to use and my periods are certainly lighter and less painful. The added bonus is obviously the cost saving and the lack of impact on the environment unlike other sanitary items. I am shocked so few women I speak to have ever heard of the Mooncup and I wish I had known about it before I did, its a shame its not more widely available. Great product !!! Love It,

I never review stuff but I feel that, in this case, it’s a necessity: I was very sceptical about the mooncup. I thought it was another one of those things that only ultra-hippies think is great but that the rest of the world is puzzled about. Well, now that I’ve bought one I feel like the dumbest woman on earth for thinking that. The mooncup is the most practical, ingenious invention of our time. In fact, if you opened the dictionary and looked under “Miracle”, there should just be a picture of a mooncup. I don’t understand why they aren’t handed out in schools or by the NHS to EVERY SINGLE WOMAN alive. I thought it was going to be really gross. Instead, I feel like I’ve been given the chance, for the first time in 26 years, to actually learn about my body. As someone interested in waste reduction and ecological approaches to living, I know I’ve found a lifetime solution. But I think the Mooncup would change your life even if you’re not eco-friendly and you hate the environment.
Best £20 I EVER spent. EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve been using my Mooncup for about a year now and I would never, ever go back to using pads and tampons again.During this time I’ve found that my cramps aren’t anywhere near as bad (they were often quite debilitating and I had to take a lot of time off work in the past), I don’t spend any where near as much money, my pants are spot free (gross, yeah, but I haven’t leaked once using a Mooncup), AND my periods are shorter and much less complicated.
All this with the added bonus of knowing that some poor fish isn’t going to end up with the contents of my uterus all over its face.
Nice one Mooncup.
