HOW TO USE THE MOONCUP
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®.
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.
Fold the Mooncup.
Part the labia and place the cup as low down in the vagina as it will comfortably sit (lower down than a tampon). There must be a gap between the rim of the Mooncup and the cervix.
To remove the Mooncup, 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.
All of our packaging is plastic free and recyclable.
