One woman will typically use up to 14, 000 tampons or pads in her lifetime! By replacing these products with a long-lasting, reusable menstrual cup like the Mooncup, you can save yourself so much expense, and protect your planet from so much unnecessary landfill waste.
For best results, make sure you choose your Mooncup in the correct size. Mooncup sizing is based on pelvic floor tone, not menstrual flow. Pelvic floor tone will vary depending on your age and whether you’ve had children.
These is a small but crucial (3mm) size difference between the two sizes.
Size A dimensions: 46mm in diameter, 50mm length
- Recommended for women aged 30 & over
- Recommended for women who have given birth vaginally (regardless of age)
Size B dimensions: 43mm in diameter, 50mm length

- May also be suitable for women over 30 who have had corrective surgery or who regularly practice tone-improving exercises (yoga, pilates etc).
PLEASE NOTE: "At present there is no evidence that the Mooncup causes Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS), however we wish to remain cautious about this serious disease. We have recently researched and reviewed the academic literature available to us surrounding TSS and our conclusion is that any intra-vaginal device including any menstrual cup could in theory increase the risk of TSS in people who are not immune to the TSS bacteria."
You can read more about the Mooncup and TSS on their website FAQ. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact their Advice Service by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
48 out of 49 people would recommend this product10/05/2018, By ElisabethThis is the second Mooncup I have purchased, my first lasted 6 years - it developed some splits by the tiny holes at the top & is still usable but I don't want to take any chances! It is an amazing solution & I have never looked back after switching from tampons. There were stressful moments when I first used it as one has to get the hang of removing it, but the secret is to learn how to grab the base to release the suction instead of relying on the stalk to pull it out. I have very heavy periods and this is the perfect as it holds so much more than a tampon and does not leak easily or at all if flow is light.27/04/2018, By KateI love this product. It takes a bit getting used to, trying out which method of insertion is best, and it takes a few tries/cycles to know how short to cut the stem (depending on your anatomy), but overall I have been super impressed and will never go back to using tampons.18/04/2018, By KatieI’m so glad I bought my Mooncup. I’m so much less worried than when I was using tampons because it’s virtually impossible to leak and I’m confident it will stay in place.
My first few attempts took a while but have patience and stay calm. There are a lot of helpful YouTube videos online.
Once you’ve made the initial investment you really will be saving money and creating less waste. I’m so glad I took the plunge.15/04/2018, By AlexSo great, I would recommend to everyone. I got it years ago (high school days), but only built up the courage a while back to try it. I'm now 25 and feel liberated that I don't have to rush off to the store to get tampons anymore.
First few tries are awkward, but you get the hang of it after a while. Then it's so normal and freeing.
I've never tried a goddess cup. A friend has and it looks a bit thinner and less 'sturdy' than the Mooncup.
I'd recommend this product 100%. If its not working well for you, reread instructions & make sure you seal it properly.27/03/2018, By LynneThis was my first menstrual cup, and I used it for the first time my last cycle. It took me a few tries to really get the hang of it and there's a definite trick to getting it out (turns out that reading the instructions is a good idea). This cup is so much more comfortable and more reliable than a tampon, and it's so great not to have to carry around tampons and keep a whole lot of different sizes on hand. As someone who suffers from fairly heavy periods, this is lifechanging! Plus its way better for the environment :D I won't be going back to tampons and I highly recommend the Mooncup.21/03/2018, By BronwenI read the FTN blog and reviews a few times before deciding to take the plunge and buy a moon cup. I was a bit apprehensive about it at first but after working out I had contributed 26 years worth of tampons (at age 39 now) to the growing landfill of sanitary wear, I was horrified and determined to make a small difference.
My moon cup arrived. I read the pamphlet a few times, boiled my moon cup as stated. Day 1 arrived of my period and I tried it. I struggled. In hindsight it was because my flow was too light, and I had not cut the stem at all so it was pinching as well as I was anxious about it. Day 2 I opted for tampons (feeling very guilty) because it is always my heaviest day and I had to go out. I didn't feel like the stress , I wanted to be home using it for the first time.
Day 3 I tried again. This time I cut the stem right down. I was surprised that I couldn't feel it at all. I did struggle to remove it, but I followed the instructions and slid a finger up the side to release the suction which made it so much easier (the suction can be super strong!)It was a bit messy, but as long as you can wash your hands with soap and water you will be fine! I was surprised that the moon cup wasn't even full each time I emptied it out, rinsed it and reinserted it. Day 3 was my learning day and I wore a panty liner which did have some leakage but not much.
Day 4-7 I got the hang of it and it was plain sailing after that.
I even swam and hiked with it in. I would recommend making sure you have accessibility to water and soap (if not, rather wear another form of sanitary wear until you do) as well as relaxing and not stressing about removing it. It can't get lost inside you and it just need a bit of a push and a wiggle and it slides right out.
lets face it, the string of a tampon can be smelly (urine) and also you worry about it sticking out when you wear a bikini. With a moon cup all that is gone! So wonderful!
I would totally recommend this wonderful product. you will feel so free during your period!08/03/2018, By LilieLove love love my cup!! Took a while to figure it out but once you get it right you will never look back !12/02/2018, By VickyThis product is simply amazing. I wish I had discovered this many years ago. It comes with simple instructions, and there are also loads of informative videos available on YouTube. Every single month, during my period, I would experience discomforts (something similar to the feeling of bladder infection); only now that I have used the Mooncup, have I figured out, this has mostly been due to my tampon use. I did some research and discovered that my not so trusty tampons are laden with harmful chemicals. I am inlove with this product (Mooncup), and will most probably continue to use this, for as long as I have a period. And, this was delivered to my door, in 24 hours!! Now, that is fantastic service. Thank you!04/02/2018, By KylieI am so happy with my change to this menstrual cup! I would have to change tampons every 1.5 - 2 hours for the 1st 2/3 days of my period, which is absolutely horrible because I wouldn’t want to go anywhere or do anything for those 3 days a month Incase I leak through. But with this cup, I can go up to 6-8 hours without even thinking about being on my period!
You really aren’t restricted at all with this cup as you can swim, sleep and exercise with it in and you don’t even feel it.
It is quite different to get used to putting it in and removing it compared to tampons, but it didn’t take me long to get used to it at all. I did find the length a problem with the stick part at the bottom, so it didn’t take long for me to completely remove the whole thing as it wasn’t needed. Just be sure that you don’t need it before you cut it off!
The no waste aspect was actually my main reason for changing and the fact that it holds 3x more than a tampon was my final persuasion pro that I needed to invest. But so far I am so relieved my concerns for the cup are out the window!
03/02/2018, By SuzieIt took me a long time to commit to a menstrual cup because I couldn't decide on a brand. It was ultimately the reviews on the Mooncup that sealed the deal and there is no looking back. Absolutely life-changing with regards to comfort and convenience and much easier to use than I thought it would be.23/12/2017, By JesThis is an incredible improvement from using tampons. I can leave it in the entire day without the stress of leakage, or feeling dried out. I love my Mooncup.22/12/2017, By TammyI am so happy I decided to give this a try. I didn't have much luck with the Goddess Cup unfortunately, and almost gave up hope of a Menstrual Cup working for me.
I found this so easy to use, got the hang of it quite quickly, and haven't had a single leak! It's also so comfortable, I don't even realise it's there
This is definitely worth getting, a great investment to yourself and the environment. Every women should have one18/12/2017, By MVSo easy to use, so comfortable!
It really IS life-changing. No need to worry about leaking, no need to run to bathroom the whole day, reducing the impact on the environment... And bonus I have spent NIL on sanitary products since
Have recommended to my sisters and friends13/12/2017, By BambiQuick delivery, so happy!08/12/2017, By SindisiweThe first cup I tried leaked quite a lot but this one is fantastic! The capacity isn’t huge, so on my heaviest day I sometimes have to empty it quite often. The other day I walked past the sanitary products in the supermarket and felt really happy that I couldn’t remember the last time I’d bought any.24/11/2017, By JaneI have only used applicator tampons, so having to push the mooncup in by hand scared me at first. It took me two tries to get it in, and removing it was a little bit stressful the first time for me. I would recommend practicing putting it in and taking it out before you have your period.
Also wear it for a while before deciding on where (or whether) to cut the stem off. I cut mine shorter than necessary, which makes it a bit trickier to take out.
Overall, great product and very comfortable.15/10/2017, By BexGame changer. I love my mooncup, it makes life easier, greener and healthier. Not nearly as intimidating as I though it would be!15/10/2017, By BexGame changer. I love my mooncup, it makes life easier, greener and healthier. Not nearly as intimidating as I though it would be!15/10/2017, By MarleneSo happy with this product! Took a day to "get to know" the cup, but now I can't ever imagine using anything else for my period ever again. It's healthier for the body, environment and bank balance - so why would you not love it?
Thanks Faithful to Nature!!12/10/2017, By JenEvery women should be using this! Super easy, more comfortable than tampons and I feel good about myself because I'm not only being kind to the environment I'm also being much gentler on my body and my wallet in the long run.06/10/2017, By Tracey JoyThis is the second cup I have tried. This brand is better by far. It is an investment, but absolutely worth it.18/09/2017, By EllaTook a day or so to get used to its application, but once I got that down (or up ;P), I could not believe it took me so long to get my own menstrual cup! The peace of mind alone, not having to worry about leaking, makes it worth it, and the little-no impact on the environment is the cherry on the top!11/09/2017, By JemmaBest thing i could ever have brought. Great for the environment, i really feel a sense of relief at not having to buy pads or tampons every month anymore, i definitely feel like i am helping the environment with this amazing cup! Feels so much more healthier and cleaner than tampons and pads. I just brought my sister one as well! Everyone should have this cup! It does take some getting used to though as you really have to get intimate with yourself, especially when taking the cup out, but it makes your period so much tolerable and i feel like it shortened my period as well, an added bonus.06/09/2017, By JliiThis cut takes some getting used to but is SO worth it and SO much better than any other sanitary products.30/08/2017, By LianneThe first time I used it, it took some getting used to. I realised quickly that the long 'handle' can be cut right down from first use as you don't actually need it. First prize to be used in a toilet with a basin close by, or a bottle of water as second best option. It feels comfortable and no more waste... just love it.24/08/2017, By MExcellent product. Would highly recommend it!21/07/2017, By Bela
What is the capacity of the mooncup?05/07/2017, By CheI am thrilled with this product and the service from Customer Service in the UK. I found it incredibly easy to use and have not had a days issue. That heavy dull ache I usually have every month seems to have disappeared and it is super comfortable at all times. It has been interesting and enlightening to get so up and personal with my period and lady bits! What an amazing product!22/06/2017, By KimWhy, oh why did I not try this years ago? As easy, if not easier than a tampon. And much more comfortable... Comes with loads of info and illustrations on how to use it. Really all simple and so easy... did I say that already? Oh, and I am saving money, and the environment. Make the change, you won't be sorry.09/06/2017, By LisaIf my house burns down, this will be one of the first things I grab! Absolutely life-changing - no more stinky, chemically laced pads or tampons!09/06/2017, By GabyI still wonder why I took so long to buy one of these. I have been hearing about menstrual cups since a few years, but thought it wasn't a product for me, that it was too much of a hassle. Then I read a shocking article on the chemicals that are in tampons and pads and I did the switch. It is the best thing ever. I don't even feel it. It is very easy to insert, and to remove once you are used to it. It has been 4 months since I bought my Mooncup, and I haven't used a tampon nor a pad since. and I love that this alternative is much better for me, much cheaper in the long run, and waste free! I recommend it 100%!17/05/2017, By Emma-LisaBest buy ever11/04/2017, By AndreaThis is a phenomenal game changer, ladies! Period pains are gone, expensive sanitary products - gone. And my favourite perk is that my cycle no longer has any impact on my lifestyle - long hikes, active yoga sessions or hours catching waves - its just not even an issue anymore. And making the change, is one of the most empowering environmental stances you can take to reduce your personal footprint. Do it! Get personal with your body - you will NOT regret it. :) x18/01/2017, By GemmaI must say, I didn think this would work as well as it does. Im so happy I made the decision to invest in this cut- because thats what it is, an investment. Not only is it comfortable and discreet but also easy to insert and clean.
I took a little practice at first with insertion but its so worth it for the hours of protection it provides. I don have to worry about carrying tampons around at work as you can use the loo without having to remove it. I found a little bit of leakage when I played squash but would still recommend this to any sporty person. I love my moon cup.22/11/2016, By DonniqueReally love this product, feel alot more in tune with my body. Easy to use, easy to clean, leaks a little during exercise but no more than conventional sanitary products. Accidentally cut the stem too short so suggest you use it once before cutting the stem.10/10/2016, By JessicaThis is the third menstrual cup brand Im using and I think it might just be the best one so far. I have quite a heavy flow and there haven been any big leaks and I really enjoy how sturdy it feels, unlike MyOwnCup which feels a bit too flexible.16/09/2016, By ShelleyI have wanted to try menstrual cups for ages! And now I am so happy I did. Even though I have a stupidly low lying cervix during my period I Google tons of advice and found a way to make the cup work for me. Mooncup UK were so helpful and even refunded me the price of the cup regardless of the fact that I bought it from FTN. They said it would not work for me and they apologise because their cup is longer than I have space for. But I still made it work! I am blown away by how easy they are to use and how you totally forget about it. I always got irritation down there from pads and tampons eventually give me thrush after I use too many. I barely felt a thing using the menstrual cup! It is a serious learning curve and I am amazed and just how little I knew about my own lady parts!!! But now I can gladly say I know a lot about how things work.
Thanks so much for srocking this amazing brand of cups. I am so happy I tried!!09/06/2016, By BiancaI was very, very skeptical before trying this product. I didn think much of the concept of how they operate. But after use I WILL NEVER TURN BACK!!!! They are so comfortable and you don have to worry about WHO can sense you
e on your mensies. Great for horse riding as well! Made my period a breeze!!! The company is also very helpful in answering all your questions.09/06/2016, By TanyaI bought this product fully expecting it to take me a while to get the hang of it. I have only used it during one cycle now and it was super easy. Worked so well - easy to insert and no accidents. An absolutely life changing product!08/04/2016, By ShayneI tried he other brand first and wish I had bought this one first rather. It is easy to insert, doesn leak (I have heavy flows so thats saying a lot!) very easy to clean, you can even sleep with it in. I much prefer this one to the other and especially love that it last long, I won need to buy tampons again and its easy to clean, and if for some reason can change
ow (like I am asleep) its ok. Another thing I like (quite a quirky like) is that it has a ml measurement on the side so you can now if your flow is too heavy or not. Brilliant product- money well spent on this one!31/01/2016, By NeliaIve tried the Mooncup and the MyOwnCup. After one period I can safely say that I prefer the Mooncup. The leaflet is nice and detailed, giving you the step by step on everything you need to do to ensure that you are comfortable and your Mooncup is clean. The Mooncup is a bit firmer than the MyOwnCup. I never had troubles with getting it to open up or getting it out, thanks to the prominent grip rings on the bottom and the stem of the cup. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who gets periods and currently uses tampons.26/01/2016, By ashleighThis is a great great product. It does take a little practice but its just so much better than the alternatives.24/11/2015, By MeganI used my mooncup for the first time this week and I am converted! Wow, no more waking up in the middle of the night to do a change or running to the ladies on the hour at work. I suffer from a VERY heavy flow and this is without a doubt the answer to my prayers.
If I can give any advice I would say read the instructions carefully and completely relax when inserting and removing. The more you tense up the more difficult it will be.04/11/2015, By KarlaLOVE THIS PRODUCT. Ive had my Mooncup for nearly 10 years now and I cannot recommend it enough. I love knowing that Im not contributing to the toxic waste build up. Its a fabulous thing to be out in nature (for instance when hiking or camping) to know that you don have to carry out a blooded items.26/10/2015, By WendyI was also a little skeptical at first, but after doing enough research I convinced myself to buy one.
It has definitely changed my lifestyle, and for the better. I would recommend it to anyone. Yes it does take a little bit of getting used to, but once you have it figured out, it really makes your monthly cycle so much easier.10/09/2015, By JACKIEI love my MoonCup!!! My sisters each got one and then told me about it. I bought one and a week later I bought 4 more. I gave them to my friends and although they were a bit dubious at first but now say they cannot live without it. I have now bought 11 in total and have yet to meet someone that didnt love theirs, it might seem like an odd gift to give someone but they all really appreciate it once they have tried it!
They might take a try or 2 to get them comfy but once you get the hang of it, it is like it is not even there. Way more hygienic than tampons and pads, it is a once of cost and we get to play our little part in saving the environment.
You cannot go wrong with a Mooncup26/05/2015, By RachaelI have been using a MoonCup for 4 years and I absolutely love it, Ill never go back to tampons or sanitary pads. My friend convinced me to give it a go and since Ive started Ive convinced my sister and my mum to get on too. Admittedly my first period with it wasn fun, it felt uncomfortable and was a bit awkward using a toilet outside my own home. But then I cut the stem off before my next period, and learnt how to properly insert it and it hasn been uncomfortable again - when its in properly you shouldn feel it. And as for using it out and about, as long as you have toilet paper to wipe down your fingers before you leave the cubicle you don have to look like lady macbeth at the sinks! Ive just had a baby and as soon as my periods return Ill be getting the next size up. Ive only ever used the MoonCup, not another brand, and Ill only use the MoonCup in future. It works brilliantly.14/04/2015, By DeidreI bought my menstruation cup, MyOwnCup Sanitary Menstrual Cup, here at Faithful to Nature in December. I was very sceptical but decided to give it a try. The first time I had to use it was very very stressful and I ended up almost tossing it to the bin. But then i googled some Youtube videos and by the next day I was a pro at inserting and other issues with this method. I now wish I had convinced myself sooner in life to try new ways. I cant wait to recommend it to my daughter one day too. Yes its not a product for those who are not willing to get way more intimate with their lady bits. But me personally I think its the greatest product ever. Really wish more females could be introduced to it and most of all that it was more affordable for those who really could be in need of this product.07/04/2015, By SaskiaI have exactly the same product just from a different brand (Diva cup). Its great if you
e out of tampons. Otherwise, I find it difficult to insert, as you have to squeeze it together and if it pops open while you
e inserting, you won get it in far enough. Its ok when walking, but when sitting the little knob that you use to pull on and remove it, it rubs and it feels uncomfortable. Its definitely very unuseful if you
e in a public toilet as you cannot wash it. You have to wash it in a sink, which can be kinda gross. I don find it very hygienic, because its difficult to rinse it under very hot water. Then when putting it back in after washing, its kinda not slippery enough and difficult to insert.
I recommend it if you go on a 5 day hike in the wilderness and have no other options...or if you
e a super conscious nature freak and don want to pollute the world with tampons, but otherwise this is a pretty useless devise.
