WHAT IS A MENSTRUAL CUP?
A menstrual cup is a small, foldable, reusable device made from silicone, rubber or plastic that collects, rather than absorbs, the menstrual blood when inserted into the vagina. Mooncup® is the brand name of a menstrual cup: the first medical grade silicone menstrual cup in the world.
HOW DOES THE MOONCUP MENSTRUAL CUP WORK?
Once the Mooncup is inside it opens up and forms a light seal with the vaginal wall which holds it in place.
It sits lower than a tampon and works by collecting the menstrual blood. The Mooncup is held in place by the vaginal muscles and can be emptied, rinsed and reinserted every four to eight hours. It can be used safely when travelling, swimming or exercising.
WHY USE A MOONCUP?
The Mooncup is a healthy and convenient alternative to tampons and pads which saves you money too. It’s great for swimming, sports and because it’s designed to last for years, it’s an easy way to dramatically reduce the waste you produce.
