Warning: This review is not for the squeamish. It is impossible to write a meaningful review of this product without being graphic and blunt. There will be talk of blood, menstruation, messiness, toilets, pain and other generally unsavoury things. So feel free to move on without reading or rating...

Contramessy and at times awkward

I warn you now, if you are faint hearted or squeamish, you probably don't want to read this review. It's the type of product that necessitates some graphic language, and there are numerous mentions of various body parts and bodily functions throughout. The moon cup is one of those things that I’d...

“Me and my Mooncup”

published 29/09/2006

ProSafer, more comfortable, greener and cheeper

ContraTakes a few goes to get the hang of it

***** Introduction ***** A year ago I was in the same position as I expect most of you reading this are now. I'd been using the usual tampons and towels period after period like the rest of you. So how did I end up writing about something like the Mooncup? I'd heard a little bit about menstrual...

Having just read a great review about washable sanitary pads, I remembered my experiences with another eco-friendly 'time of the month' aid, the Mooncup. I was happy to see that the other person who has reviewed this product got on very well with it, but I wanted to share my experiences to show...

The Mooncup first came to my attention after I saw a sign promoting it on the back of a toilet door at Glastonbury. Once I returned to civilisation, I searched for 'Mooncup' on google and instantly fell in love with the idea. Safe, clean, easy, environmentally sound - it seemed too good to be...

ContraUncomfortable to wear. Difficult to remove. Messy.

Like many women, I'd heard about the Mooncup and basically turned away squeamishly at the idea of using a menstrual cup - dismissing it as hippy-happy-clappy nonsense! The idea just has never been appealing to me....the idea of blood collecting in a little cup which you then pour away.....ugh...

MoonCup I remember very clearly the first time I got my period. I was 12 and totally unprepared. I'm 32 now, and have spent 22 years dealing with incredibly heavy periods with a combination of tampons and sanitary towels. Leakage has always been a huge problem and until as little while ago, I was...

I've had a Mooncup for four or five years now, and it's the most useful thing I've bought in a long time. Women often get evangelical about menstrual cups, and no wonder. If your first reaction is "yuck!", read on anyway. A menstrual cup is a small, bell-shaped object that is worn inside the...

Contramessy

Anyone male probably wants to look away now, judging by the reactions of every guy I know when the girls get together to talk periods. This is a menstrual cup, which means I'll be going into detail about that horrid, messy and uncomfortable time of the month which we girls must suffer through. If...
