Great Alternative Menstrual Product
If you are just starting out on your menstrual journey or you are currently using Menstrual Pads or Tampons for your Period,
The Menstrual Cup will be a revelation!
The Menstrual Cup is a more comfortable, cleaner and less expensive alternative to Tampons and Menstrual Pads. We know change is sometimes a little scary but have no fear here. We promise you will love your Moon Menstrual Cup and you will wonder why it has taken you so long to try!
Avoid disposable pads and tampons which can include synthetic fibres like rayon which can cause all sorts of health issues including cramping pain, rashes and infections. If you suffer from cramping using a natural pad like menstrual cups may help reduce or even eliminate pain.
Lower Costs and Less Landfill Waste.moon Cups are designed for long-term use – up to 10 years life cycle! Since you can reuse them, there’s less waste to clog up our landfills and fewer trees sacrificed to make the paper-based alternatives.
In fact, you may use 16,000 disposables over your lifetime!
We can help to reduce the 45 billion products disposed of globally each year.
Question is 4 cups or 16,000 disposables?
Less Embarrassing Odour.
You won’t have to worry about embarrassing menstrual odour since the fluid doesn’t get exposed to air as it does with pads and tampons. When you remove the cup the contents will be as if it had just discharged. Simply empty into the toilet and flush! The material used to make our cups means the discharge slips off the cup. A quick rinse in water will clean the cup, ready to be reinserted.
If your out and about don't worry you can use a bit of tissue or a wipe to clean. In-between periods sterilise your cup with our Foldable Microwaveable Menstrual Cup steriliser.
Vaginal PH And Beneficial Bacteria Stay in Place.
Tampons absorb all your vaginal fluid along with the blood, which may disturb the delicate pH and bacterial balance in your vagina. Leaving your vagina dry and tampons uncomfortable.
Insert your Cup before your period starts.
You can use any of our Menstrual Cups before your period starts! Just put the cup in around your due dates and enjoy comfortable protection, no more embarrassing leaks or trying to find someone with a tampon at work!
Fewer Visits To The Pharmacy.
Most customers don't replace their cups for three plus years! Some just like to refresh once a year. Even if you do replace your cup once a year, you’ll still make 11 fewer trips to the pharmacy than you would if you used the disposable paper-based methods.
That's roughly 420 tampons or pads not used each year! (Over 16,000 in our lifetime) just one simple change can have such a positive effect on the environment.
More time between changes
You need to change tampons every two to eight hours, depending on flow. You can have as much as 16 hours leak free with The Moon cup before emptying.
Easy To Use
You should have little trouble learning how to insert a menstrual cup. Just fold it, so it looks like a tampon, aim it toward the back of the vagina and give a little push. You won't need to push back as far as a tampon as it will sit a lot lower. When inserted correctly, you won't feel its presence at all. In fact, a lot of us ladies forget its the time of the month altogether! If you're a teenager or first time user of inserted menstrual products we suggest The Small Moon Cup as it is the shortest and smallest Menstrual Cup. Once you feel comfortable, you can try the larger one if desired.
One of the most positive reported effects of our Menstrual Cups is less cramping. So many women report smother flow and eased if not eliminated menstrual pain! Our Menstrual Cups are particularly useful for people who suffer from severe menstrual cramping.
