YOUR MOONCUP MENSTRUAL CUP QUESTIONS
DOES THE MOONCUP HOLD MORE THAN A TAMPON?
The Mooncup collects up to three times more menstrual blood than a regular tampon.
The size A Mooncup can hold 29.3 millilitres, and the size B Mooncup can hold 28.8 millilitres to the rim.
WILL THE MOONCUP WORK
FOR LIGHT OR HEAVY PERIODS?
The Mooncup is great for lighter days: as it’s non-absorbent it won’t cause dryness.
It holds three times the fluid of a tampon, making it great on heavier days, too.
HOW DO I USE MY MOONCUP IN
A PUBLIC TOILET?
First wash your hands. You can then take a small bottle of water into the toilet cubicle with you. Remove the Mooncup, tip the contents into the toilet bowl, rinse with a small amount of water and re-insert.
