The Mooncup is a reusable menstrual cup, around two inches long and made from soft medical grade silicone.
It is worn internally a lot lower than a tampon but, while tampons and pads absorb menstrual fluid, the Mooncup collects it.
This means it doesn’t cause dryness or irritation, and also that it collects far more (three times as much as a tampon!).
Because the Mooncup is reusable, you only need one so it saves you money and helps the environment, too.
How does the Mooncup work?
The Mooncup is designed to be folded and inserted into the vagina, then removed, rinsed and reinserted up to every 8 hours.
A light seal is formed with your vaginal walls, allowing menstrual fluid to pass into the Mooncup without leakage or odour.
This seal is released for removal, allowing you to empty the contents, rinse or wipe and reinsert.
Comfortable, convenient and safe: the Mooncup can be used overnight and when travelling, swimming or exercising.

Why we love it
There are a number of reasons why we love the Mooncup here at The Nappy Gurus.
One of them being cost! On average a woman will spend roughly between £45 - £88 a year on disposable sanitary wear. Compared to the one-off cost for a cup that will last around 10 years!
The Mooncup considerably reduces the risk of TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome)
No chemicals such as those in disposable tampons, causing vaginal dryness, which can alter the pH levels thus making you more likely to suffer from infections
Also a huge benefit for us, as we are all environmentally conscious is the impact disposables have on the environment. The average woman uses approximately 11,000 disposable pads and tampons throughout her lifetime-menstrual cycle. An estimated 8 billion bleached pads and tampons end up in the UK sewage systems each year and 70% of blockages in the sewage system are caused by sanitary waste.
