Gladrags The Moon Menstrual Cup - Size A -- 1 Cup

Eco-Friendly Tampon Alternative. Safe • Simple • Smart • Period. Easy to Use. Save Money and the Planet! The Moon Cup Menstrual Cup provides you with the same benefits as The Keeper but is made of soft non-latex medical grade silicone. Introduced in 2006 The Moon Cup is innovative economical comfortable and environment friendly. This soft silicon menstrual cup collects the flow rather than absorbing it so the vaginal tissues aren't dried out as they can be with disposable tampons. The Moon Cup holds up to an ounce of fluid and should be emptied several times a day; simply rinse and reinsert. Size A is for after vaginal childbirth.

Better than a Diva Cup!
 July 14, 2014
"I've had a Diva Cup for over five years and decided it was finally time to toss it out and buy new. Since the Moon Cup was $5 cheaper, I decided I'd try it. I was a little surprised - it looks larger in the lip and the tip is longer, but these both turned out to be great features! The seal is more snug on the Moon Cup, so I have much less leakage than I did with my Diva Cup, and also the longer tip makes extraction much easier. All-around, I'm very pleased with my purchase and I will be recommending this one from now on."

Great alternative!

"This definitely has a learning curve but once you insert it right, it is totally worth the investment. I've worn it to the beach on two consecutive days on my period and I could hardly tell I had it on. It is very comfortable and painless. The best part is that there's no chemicals close to my body and nothing to throw away."

Worth the money
 February 5, 2013
"The description of size A does say after "normal" childbirth, but I want to point out that if you've had a c-section you might want to choose size B. Just for clarification:) I have had 3 c-sections and am in my 30s, so while it might be a tad too large, its not very noticable at all. I also ended up trimming away all but a small nub of the "handle" because it was poking me uncomfortably :-P. I had no problems removing/inserting after trimming it.
That being said, this has freed up my wardrobe considerably, only having to wear a liner at night to prevent leaks. I love the idea of not having to buy pads, and keeping waste at a minimum. I love it!

Great!

"I was unsure if I would like this product, but it had great reviews and I love it so far. It took a few tries to figure out the perfect way to use it..but I really like it. I do not find it difficult to place or remove and find that it will save me $ in the long run! Great price for it on vitacost too!"

AWESOME

"This product has made life so much easier. No more worrying about not having supplies and making a mad dash to the store. This product is extremely easy to use once you get past the learning curve. This is nothing like pads or tampons...no messes or smell...no dryness or irritation...no continued cost or landfill waste. I will never go back to pads or tampons again. I would definitely recommend!"

Moon cup, where have you been all my life!
 February 18, 2010
"I absolutely love this product! I hardly know it's there! The best way to rate this product is to tell you what I don't miss. I don't miss packing extra supplies, all the trash, running to the store, leaks, cotton that dries up every bit of moisture you have, pads which make you feel like your sitting in a wet diaper, being self conscious of the odor, and all the evidence you are on your cycle! Follow the directions, and it is so easy to use! Size A is for Women who have have had children, size B is for women who have not. Make sure you get the right size or it might leak."

Nothing better!
 January 9, 2010
"I used this, or the same thing, in the 60's. I used a diaphragm as my cup. Only problem is public restrooms where the sink is outside of the stall.
The BEST part is, your partner doesn't even have to know that you have your period!!!!
WONDERFUL
