    Mooncups are brilliant!!!! I have had one for about 2 years now and wish I had known about them years ago! Very easy to use, comfortable - so comfortable that I can forget I am using one.. A green option as no yeuchy tampons are to be disposed of and a cheap option as you buy once and it will last you for many years.

    Yes they're great - I've used mine for about 10 years now.
    The ability of skinny old ladies to carry huge loads is phenomenal. An ant can carry one hundred times its own weight, but there is no known limit to the lifting power of the average tiny eighty-year-old Spanish peasant grandmother.

    I agree, Mooncups are great! Had mine for over a year, it's really comfortable and 100% reliable (more than I can say for tampons!). One tip - they have a little "stick" on the bottom to help you pull it out, I would suggest cutting this short so that you don't feel it while wearing the cup.

    Hello,

    I've been using a mooncup for just over a year now and I think it's fantastic and very reliable.

    I'd also agree with the tip from aphrodite to cut off the stem.

    I have heard very good things about these, I'm planning to get one hopefully as a birthday present next month.

    I can do nothing but rave about this! I wish I'd known about it years ago, I reckon it's more than paid for itself in the <2 yrs I've used it, and I love it's 'green' credentials

    Must admit, a friend recommended it yonks ago, I went to the website, read about it, thought yeeuk no way and left it ... wasn't til I heard a bunch of converts on another website raving about it that I revisited the idea. Took me a bit of getting used to, but it's *much* more reliable than tampons, esp. good if you're heavy at the start of your cycle, and great to know I'm doing my bit for the environment. HTH - huge for the mooncup!

    It sounds good, but I would be concerned about toxic shock syndrome, I know it says a bit about it on the website, but it would still worry me. What to do? :confused:
    Sometimes I feel like a pelican. Whichever way I turn, I've still got an enormous bill in front of me.
  • jessanna
    Yep, I'm another convert. I've been using it for about 2 years now and it's great - took me a cycle or two to get thoroughly used to it though - so persevere- you'll be glad you did.

    Another One Agrees..
    they're great.

    took me a bit of time to get the knack, but now it's second nature.

    so many advantages...less changes, less cost, no waste I could go on!

    Go for it!

    Much less risk of TSS with mooncup than with tampons as it doesn't absorb, just 'collects'. Just remember to empty and rinse it twice a day and boil/sterilise/dishwash! between cycles and it's more hygenic than tampons.

    I'm sure Mooncups come with a 3 month money-back guarantee if you don't get on with it, so nothing to lose!

    It's great! I've had mine for about six months and I won't go back to tampons. A brilliant money saver and you never have to worry about how many sanitary products to take on holiday ever again.

    Just wanted to add how much I love mine too. It took a couple of cycles to get used to it, but now I am an old pro I cut the stem right off as well, it made it much more comfy.

    I bought one after the recomendations on here and the first time I was a bit worried about leaving the house!! But I would just like to say no problems at all. I would recommend this product to everyone.

    It feels good to be doing something for the environment.
