 Mooncup Menstrual Cup
  Mooncup - A healthy alternative to tampons The Mooncup is a reusable menstrual cup around two inches long and made from soft silicone rubber. It is worn internally like a tampon but collects menstrual fluid rather than absorbing. Unlike tampons the Mooncup is not a disposable product, so you only need to buy one. The Mooncup will hold 30ml of fluid, which is roughly one third of the average total produced each period. A light seal is formed with your vaginal walls allowing your menstrual fluid to pass into the Mooncup without leakage or odour. You will probably find that you need to empty your Mooncup less frequently than you currently replace towels or tampons.
Recommended price : £ 18.95
Available from : www.bodykind.com and other merchants

Fantastic invention! The average woman disposes of 10,000 sanitary products in her lifetime - which all end up in the sea or landfill. The mooncup is incredibly environmentally friendly in comparison as each lasts on average 10 years and you will only need one! This surprisingly comfortable device rids the need of any sanitary protection and is very easy to use. Designed and tested over many years by women to achieve the best design. Check other website reviews of the mooncup for more happy customers.
 Cleaner than other methods, efficient and reduces cramps

Sadly, I have a mooncup and no longer use it. I want so much to use an alternative to wasteful towels and tampons, so I bought a mooncup and persevered for many months. However, on a practical level I found it unpleasant to use. Not to put too fine a point on it, I didn't like the attempts to locate and extract it, getting messy in the process, whilst in a club or pub where I couldn't go and rinse it in the sink. I found it off putting. It leaked (I have heavy periods) and also found it uncomfortable at times. I feel the need to apologise, because deep down I WANT it to be the perfect solution, but regrettably I do not think it is.
 No waste
 Messy to use
