The Moon cup is made in the UK and might just be the product you’re looking for. When it comes to reusable menstrual products, then menstrual cups are fantastic, and this is one of the best.
The Moon Cup
Designed to be reused each, the moon cup is made in the UK from medical grade silicone. You can sterilise the cup by boiling it for five minutes before using. During your period you can rinse it or wash it out each time you empty it during the day. Being easy to use and producing no waste that needs to be thrown away. This makes the cup ideal for everyday use, camping and travelling. Everywhere that you go, your cup can go too.
Easy to use
The moon cup is simple to use, worn inside the body it simply collects your flow, which you can then empty out throughout the day as needed. It will not absorb your natural moisture, as tampons do, and so will not dry you out. To insert you simply fold and then once inside it should spring open, once in, you shouldn’t be able to feel it, and it is ideal for use during everyday activities and sports and swimming.
Choosing your size
Choosing your cup size is simple, the moon cups come in small (size B) and large (size A). Size B is designed for women under 30 who have not given birth. Size A is for women who have given birth and all women over 30. If only choosing the right bra size was so simple. This table should help to make your choice even easier:
By using a Mooncup, you are saving money. With no need to buy disposable pads and tampons each time you have a period, the Mooncup soon pays for itself. The Moon Cup was my first step in using a reusable menstrual product, many many years ago now. I remember hearing about menstrual cups and being intrigued. Years later and although I’ve tried many other menstrual cups and reusable pads, it’s still my moon cup that I go back to. In that time, I have purchased a second cup, because I have had children, but my second cup is now years old and still going strong and working for me every month.
