Size A is recommended for women who are 30 and over or have given birth vaginally whatever your age

Size B is recommended for women who are under 30 & have not given birth vaginally.

Both sizes have a pull stem, which you can trim to the length that is right for you.


How to use Mooncup Menstrual Cup

While many get the knack of using the Mooncup straight away, it can take up to 3 cycles.

Remember, your reusable menstrual cup should last for years and years. Once you’ve got it, you won’t look back.

As you would when using tampons, always wash your hands before inserting and removing your Mooncup®.



See your mooncup. C-fold shown here is the most popular folding method.



Part the labia and place the cup as low down in the vagina as it will comfortably sit (lower down than a tampon).



Trim (first use)

The base of the cup should sit as low as possible in the vagina.  As vaginal length varies, the first time you use your Mooncup you may need to trim the stem to get the best fit for you. Please see Trimming the stem below.

Remove and empty

With clean hands, gently squeeze the bottom of the cup to release the seal then slide the cup out. Empty the contents into the toilet. We recommend emptying it every 4-8 hours.

Rinse or wipe and reinsert

Rinse your Mooncup with water or wipe it with a tissue. Fold and re-insert.

Trimming the stem

Once the Mooncup is positioned as low as it will comfortably sit, the end of the stem should sit just inside your vagina.

If you find that, when positioned correctly, the Mooncup is uncomfortable when sitting or walking, or pinches the vaginal opening, then you probably need to trim the stem a little bit at a time.

Vaginal length varies, so the stem of the Mooncup menstrual cup is designed to be trimmed if needed.

Make sure you feel confident with the position and the removal of your Mooncup before trimming the stem. Practise removing your Mooncup without using the stem before trimming it. Some users find that they need to remove the stem completely.




About Mooncup

It all started in 1999, with one cyclist sharing the too-well-kept secret of a reusable menstrual cup with another at a Critical Mass Bike Ride in the UK. Early menstrual cups were made of tough rubber, hard to come by & strictly for the adventurous.

In 2000, Eileen (the second cyclist from the beginning of our story), met Su who was travelling around Australia with her husband, young daughter, a bucket and stash of washable nappies. Eileen shared the menstrual cup ‘secret’ with Su. The environmental & practical advantages of a reusable menstrual cup struck a perfect chord with Su. The secret had landed in the right hands. Su and Eileen found themselves in a lifelong friendship and with a purpose that they’d eventually work together for.

On her return to the UK, Su started selling an imported rubber cup to friends and friends-of-friends and soon realised that she wasn’t the only one ready for a better menstrual product.

When friends reported some discomfort and the symptoms of latex allergy, Su realised that the rubber cup wasn’t quite the perfect solution. Her childhood with an entrepreneurial Dad got her inventive spark firing. After extensive research, she came up with a hypoallergenic alternative; medical grade silicone; and, in the Spring of 2002, Mooncup®, the world’s first reusable silicone menstrual cup was born.

Today, the Mooncup is available in over 50 countries around the world and Mooncup Ltd continues to pioneer as an employee owned business with an ever-growing, dedicated team.  Thankfully, the Mooncup menstrual cup is no longer a secret, with millions of us freed from using tampons and pads.  Happy Mooncup users continue to spread the word: it seems word-of-mouth has a certain traction with us menstruating folk – especially when we’ve a life-changing story to share!
