I bought the recommended size but I think it’s the wrong size for me- too painful. I haven’t bought the other size but I’m thinking about it. I love the idea and all it offers but haven’t been able to put it into practice.

The best thing would be to get in touch directly with our friendly Advice Team, run by medical health professionals, at They will be happy to explore this issue further with you and see how best to help.
I feel so good knowing that I won't be producing anymore waste and benefiting the environment. But to add to that, I wish I had known about this sooner, it's the most comfortable period product I have ever used -win win all round!

It's great to feel you are doing something that really benefits the environment, is safe and clean. Be careful not to cut too much off as I had difficulty getting mine out one morning. After a mini panic, I managed to resolve it. It can take a while to get used to putting it in and getting the position right and then taking it out but it got easier the more I did it.

It took a few tries (and a slightly obsessive weekend messing up my boyfriends YouTube recommendations!) to get the hang of the cup but I can say it is SO WORTH IT! Lockdown is the perfect time to give it a go and I highly recommend doing your research before use. It really helps to have fold options, positioning and removing tips at the ready when needed! Good Luck - you've got this!

Just an incredible product. Like tampons it takes a little getting used to but after the initial difficulties its brilliant! SO much easier to have a period now (although periods so still suck)

I’ve just bought a size B Mooncup, having had my size A since I was 18 - and I’m now 32! This product was really transformative for me, SO much more comfortable, as well as environmentally sustainable and cheaper. It’s the only kind of period product I’ve tried that I can genuinely forget I’m wearing. I recommend it to everyone.

Getting a mooncup has changed my life, no lie. I used to DREAD my period especially on heavy flow days but now I don't have to worry about carrying loads of tampons and pads around. The cup is so so easy to use once you've gotten used to it. Its been about 2 years since I first tried out a moon cup and I have told all my friends to get one as it is a complete game changer! You won't regret it!

Once you go Mooncup you never go back! The first two times putting it in and taking it out is always a little clumsy and uncomfortable but stick with it. Perfect fit and no more uncomfortableness. Easy to clean too! Worth the money.

I discovered moon cup by accident during my transition into a more eco friendly life. It has transformed my periods as it is so comfortable to wear and I also have a clear conscience when it comes to plastics and waste. I also save money! Win win, I would recommend to everyone!

Just the best, what a buy. So happy with this product! I think it’s a little daunting on the first use but that feeling soon goes. After a couple of cycles use I find the cup so comfortable easy to use and clean. I can relax and not worry about leaking on periods, as mine personally are all over the place. Having a light flow one day of the cycle and using heavy flow tampons just isn’t comfortable. With the moon cup you don’t get any dry friction. FAB!

Best period cup on the market. And the customer service was excellent (the first one was lost in the mail, customer service dealt with the matter professionally).

I've wanted to try mooncup for years but always felt like I didn't have 'the time' to get used to it. I finally took the plunge and started using it on a lazy Sunday at home and I honestly don't know why I waited so long. After emptying it a couple of times I soon got the hang of it and now it is the only product I use for my period. I don't even wear a panty liner like I used to do with tampons, no leaks whatsoever!

I have always experienced severe irrational from sanitary towels and tampons. I’ve used the moon cup for over 3 years now. It fits securely and never leaks. Took me a couple of days to get used to inserting and removing. It’s so much easier than any other period protection. I recommend to everyone. I always tell all my friends to try the mooncup. And it’s only £20!! Definitely worth the investment and so environmentally friendly!

It was quite tricky at first but after a couple of periods I'm getting used to it! Love that it's so much more sustainable than tampons. Definitely worth it.

I never though of buying a mooncup and it scared me but it is the best thing I have ever bought. I have been having problems with my periods for almost 3 months they are all over the place I have really heavy ones that stop me leaving the house, I have to change my heavy flow tampon even 10 mins.... That's no lie. It got to the point we're I would have to wear incontinence pants with a tampon just incase. I thought "what could go wrong? It literally can't get any worse" so I bought my first moon cup and omg... It is the best thing I have ever bought was a bit strange at first but with a bit of exploring and finding a comfy space, that was it I had gained a period bestie!! I will never go back to pads, tampons ever again. So comfy, secure, no leaks, easy to put in and take out. I think everyone should get a period bestie. ♻️🚺❤️

I wish I'd bought my Mooncup much earlier. It can be used for light and heavy days and all the time I'm using it I feel I'm doing a little bit for the environment by saving waste. I've bought some "period pants" to go with it but haven't had too much need for them. It took a little while to find the right 'fit' but I usually don't feel it at all, and definitely less than a tampon. If your thinking about trying this then go for it!!

I've been using a mooncup for a few months now and I am very happy with it. In the beginning I was a little worried that it might get stuck but the instructions were really helpful and I never had any issues! I feel like this version is way more hygienic than tampons or pads and it's way more comfortable. Also it is very affordable and sustainable. Great choice when trying to save money, avoid unnecessary trash and/or wanting to feel more comfortable and save during your time of the month.

I really like my mooncup! I tried another brand but mooncup is the most comfortable for me. Just one remark regarding the size advice: I think it is misleading to give the size advice based only on age. There are so many factors that influence your choice of size and I think this should be mentioned on the website. E.g.: I purchased a mooncup size A because I had turned 30 a few years ago and it turned out that the bigger size hurt me a lot, so I had to go back to size B.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We're sorry to hear about the discomfort you experienced when using the size A Mooncup menstrual cup and can appreciate this being disappointing. Our sizing guidelines are based on age and childbearing history, both of which can affect pelvic floor tone. That said, we of course understand that everyone is different. If you wanted to explore this further, please feel free to contact our contact Advice team directly by emailing them at
I'm so happy to own this. No more throwing away used sanitary products! The first month was a little awkward, while I worked out how to put it in, and take it out, but since I chopped off the tail to the correct length, it's been a dream, and so comfortable. I love that it doesn't dry me out, I love that (other than the first day of my period) I only need to worry about it twice a day. It's so freeing not to need to cart around a box of products while I'm on my period. I honestly would recommend getting one so much.

Only wish I had had my moon cup earlier in my life. I’ve raved about to everyone and are buying them as presents for women I know of all ages. No waste, no leaking, and having to change it less. Took a bit of time to get used to but think once you’ve worked out it doesn’t insert as far as a tampon would and trimmed the stem right down it’s great!
