Mooncup is a reusable femine hygiene product made from
soft silicone rubber. It is worn internally, like a tampon,
but collects menstrual fluid, rather than absorbing it.
Unlike tampons the Mooncup is not a disposable product,
so you only need to buy one. It will hold 30ml of fluid,
which is roughly one third of the average total fluid
produced each period. A light seal is formed with your
vaginal walls allowing your menstrual fluid to pass into
the Mooncup without leakage or odour. You will probably
find that you need to empty your Mooncup less frequently
than you currently replace towels or tampons.
Why is it better?The Mooncup menstrual cup contains no
bleaches, deodorisers or absorbency gels. It does not
interfere with your healthy vaginal environment, nor has
it been associated with toxic shock syndrome. The smooth
surface of the Mooncup allows the mucus membranes of your
vaginal wall to continue their essential cleansing and
protective functions. The Mooncup does not absorb your
body's natural defence mechanisms and will not deposit
fibres in your vaginal wall.
For your safety the Mooncup is made from a special medical
grade non-allergic silicone. Silicone is derived from
silica which is one of the most abundant minerals on earth.
It will not cause irritation and is suitable for women
with sensitive skin, thrush, eczema or allergies.
Unlike pads and tampons the Mooncup
menstrual cup is reusable, eliminating the need to carry
bulky spares. With proper care your Mooncup will last
for several years. The cost of a Mooncup is roughly equivalent
to the cost of six month's worth of disposable feminine
Is it easy to use?
Correctly inserted, the Mooncup is so comfortable that
you will forget it exists. It may take a little practice
at first as you need to find the angle and position that
is right for you. Once you have perfected it you will
be amazed at how simple the Mooncup is to use. You will
need to empty, rinse or wipe and reinsert your Mooncup
every four to eight hours depending on your flow. The
fluid remains inside the cup, and the process is not messy
or uncomfortable. The Mooncup can safely be used overnight
and is great for all sports, swimming and travelling.
