Loving my mooncup - saving on waste and money and lasts longer. Wish I'd made the change sooner - I didn't realise how awesome they are. From a seriously pleased customer!

I love the fact that it saves you money and that it’s saving the environment too. Really convenient to use as carrying tampons about is a pain, Mooncup makes your period more easy to manage, only thing is cleaning it out when you use it is a bit messy but once you have a routine you get used to it. Love the mooncup!

The first menstrual cup I tried and genuinely the best. I’ve been using it for over a year now and it’s definitely been a game-changer, both in terms of comfort and cleanliness during my period, and reducing my use of disposable menstrual products. As with anything, practise makes perfect of course! It takes a couple of cycles to get into the swing of using it but now I’m a year in I will never go back to disposables. I use in conjunction with absorbent underwear to catch the odd leak on my heavier days. Really satisfied with this product.
Helpful Report
I used pads since my 1st period and was too scared to use tampons. I had so many questions too, as I've never used tampons I've had no experience in putting things in. I bought the mooncup because I'd had enough of having to carry extra pads (or underwear) with me to work, nights out, or even a day somewhere incase the dreaded leak happened. Once I got the mooncup I practiced before my period (as advised) and felt comfortable and couldn't wait to use it for real. The day came and I still had unanswered questions, BUT they was all answered after the 1st day of my period. I didn't bleed as much as I thought with the pads and NO worrying of the leaking or even having to carry extra stuff with me. I was comfortable, confident and had no worries about wearing light coloured jeans. And this is from a person who has never used a tampon.

Absolute game changer. It does take a little while to get the hang of it and find your routine but I would never ever go back to using disposables. The folding videos and advice are really useful and it took me a few attempts to find the easiest option for me. Without a doubt give it a try.

I'll never go back!

Followed all the advice and guidance about how to use but unfortunately this product did not work for me, constantly leaking and therefore have not been able to continue using it. A real shame because I’ve heard they work so well for others.

Unfortunately I found it hard to initially insert when I cut the stem. When I came to use it properly it went so far up it got totally stuck and was VERY hard to remove. Scarred me for life!

Having tried this product over multiple cycles I have given up as it does not work for me. I have a light flow (use reg/lite tampons) but had CONSTANT leaks as the cup would move and blood would flow around. Having followed all the advice on their website, I resorted to wearing a pantyliner to handle this. The cup also put pressure on my waterworks and was too uncomfortable to wear overnight. I am now back to using disposable products, but with added guilt about their impact on the planet.

After 2 babies and the eventual return of my periods I just couldn't bring myself to continuing with the use of disposables. I was abit unsure about how the mooncup would feel and the fiddle of cleaning each change but as I don't have a particulary heavy flow I thought I'd go for it and I'm so pleased I did. Don't know its there to the point I could easily forget! And once accustomed it's easy to remove with minimal mess in order to empty and clean. Granted that is easier to do at home but I've yet to find that an issue. Very happy I made the switch I'd really recommend giving it a go!

Revolutionised how I manage my period! It was a bit tricky to get the hang of it at first but I'm glad I stuck with it! The convenience (never rushing to the shop for tampons!) and how eco friendly it is has me raving to friends!

Well worth the money. I use it every cycle so the cost is completely justified, when you compare it to the cost of disposable sanitary products. It's way comfier than pads, way more environmentally friendly than pads/tampons. I can't feel it in there once it's in correctly so I can get on with my day unhindered. I recommend!

Switching to a Mooncup was the best decision I could of ever made! I feel so much better throughout every cycle, I feel cleaner and more in control of my body. It’s so easy to use, clean & store best of all I am saving the planet as well as reducing toxins in my own body.

I can't recommend Mooncup enough. I made the switch to be more environmentally friendly but have been delighted by how much more comfortable it is to wear than a tampon, and no leaks at all. I was a bit nervous about using it the first time but once you've become used to the way it inserts it's completely fine, and you can almost forget it's there. Thank you Mooncup for creating these - I'll never go back to tampons now!

I'm so happy I started using a Mooncup! I wanted to be kinder to the environment but honestly it's so much more comfortable and cheaper than any alternative I've tried! Easy to use from day one with no leaks or discomfort! Couldn't recommend it more!

I’m so glad i changed over to a moon cup! Can put it in and forget about it all day, no worries of leaks and is much more comfortable than a tampon as it stays in place. Perfect for travel too as no need to worry about buying or bringing a box of tampons. I’d prefer if it was a different colour as mine is becoming discoloured - that is my only negative.

I am evangelical about the moon cup…I just wish I’d switched earlier and eased my impact on the planet! It took me a few cycles to get the hang of it..not because it’s hard but because i had to get used to inserting it. These lead to total period freedom! Never worry about running out of sanitary supplies again!!!
Helpful Report
I had to stop using sanitary towels because they were causing me skin issues but also I wanted something kind to the planet. I had turned my nose up at menstrual cups for years because I couldn’t get my head round using them, the idea made my skin crawl. But with my skin problem I had very limited choices left. So I took the plunge and tried it out. The first time I used it, I found I was checking every five minutes if it was leaking and had I put it in right, and I got a bit stressed. However, I soon built my confidence with it and my next period I used it without any problems. I bought some KY jelly to help with insertion and I’ve been able to get on with my week without even realising I’m on my period. Really wish I’d done this years ago

The best thing that's come out of COVID has been working remotely from home so I can get the hang of using my Mooncup! It definitely takes a bit of practice but there's plenty of support available.
