Here at Greenbeans, we are an Authorized Mooncup UK Distributor. Buying through us will deliver the full after purchase support that Mooncup offers and delivers upon.
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.
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.
The Mooncup is available in two sizes.
Size "A" is recommended for women who have given birth vaginally - or who are aged 30 years or above; Size A measures 46mm in diameter and 50mm in length.
Size "B" is recommended for women who have not given birth vaginally, and are aged below 30. ; Size B measures 43 mm in diameter and 50mm in length.
Please ensure that you select the correct model. For hygiene reasons we cannot exchange a Mooncup once they have been dispatched.
The Mooncup menstrual cup contains no bleaches, deodorisers or absorbency gels. It does not interfere with your healthy vaginal environment.
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 defense mechanisms and will not deposit fibers in your vaginal wall.
For your safety the Mooncup is made from a special medical grade non-allergic silicone. Silicone is an organic compound which is derived from sandstone. It will not cause irritation and is suitable for women who have an allergy to rubber products.
The Mooncup can be cleaned in the same way as baby equipment: with sterilizing fluid or by putting in boiling water!
Unlike tampons, the Mooncup menstrual cup is reusable, eliminating the need to carry bulky spares. With proper care your Mooncup will last for at least ten years. Imagine the towels and tampons that you will be disposing of in landfill sites during that time! The Mooncup Menstrual Cup is manufactured in the UK.
The Mooncup will hold 30ml of fluid, which is roughly one third of the average total 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 pads or tampons.
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.
