    I got one the other month, I will admit I'm a little nervous to use it (as daft as that sounds), think it's the size that's a little intimidating. Just waiting for that time of the month to give it a try

    The beauty of the mooncup is that you can try it in and get used to how it feels and how to put it in before your period perfectly safely. I suggest you try it before your period so you feel comfortable with it when the time comes. I always put mine in a couple of days before my period is due. That way I never get leaks.

    I think after two months of constant nightly leaks, I'll have to resort to tampons at night.

    I've just purchased a mooncup. I HATE tampons they are so dry, cause soreness when my periods are unduely extended (probably due to having the implant for contraception but hey ho its better than getting pregnant), I buy soooo many and I always manage to waste some, 'cause you can't 'try again' with the same one if you mess it up and then I run out and I'm like aaaaaahhh!!

    I love the mooncup, took like a minute worth of practice, not had any leaks (can't really understand how it could leak but I do believe the above posts). Doesn't hurt to get it in, easy to check its fitted right, easy to lube up if needs be (with water based lube of course!), and easy to clean

    Love it, recommending all girls try it

    Possibly, perhaps I forgot to check... or maybe those tint holes were blocked and the seal didn't form properly

    I'm thinking of getting one of these, but I've heard some bad horror stories about the things getting trapped up 'there' resulting in a trip to A&E. Does anybody get panics with the mooncup?

    They are almost always exactly that - stories.

    Very, very little can actually get trapped up there, and a mooncup sits MUCH lower than a tampon.

    I've never even heard of these stories with regards to Mooncups. I really don't see how it could get stuck! Stop worrying and buy one

    The worst I've ever had is when my fingernails are short, and it's all slippy, and I have to try a few times to get a hold of it. It's more frustrating than anything else.

    Hooray for yukky details, woo. I always laugh at the idea of people looking up what threads I've posted in, and finding this one. :rolleyes:

    As the others have said, mainly just stories.

    People panic for all sorts of things. I guess if you're a first-time mooncup user, and you don't immediately get a grip on it and get it out, some people might freak out. There's no reason to though. When you freak out, your muscles clench, only making it harder. It's not like the mooncup has anywhere to go. If you start feeling uneasy, just relax, breathe — drink a glass of water if it takes your mind off it — and try again calmly.

    I had some pain taking it out the first few times, until I just "got" the technique.


    Oh, and having read the whole thread, and remembering comments about disapproving mums... I'd never heard of the mooncup until my mum gave me one, saying she'd seen it online and ordered for both of us, thinking I might want one. Been using it for nearly two years now. :adore:

    I would probably freak out if my mum did that (mainly at the fact she'd managed to order something online!) but that is pretty cool

    I bought myself a Mooncup after reading about them in the Uni toilets (interesting I know)
    Then converted my Mum and my Sis.

    You also have to remember that they aren't like tampons, they don't really have a time limit.
    So if you are having problems getting it out, you can relax and take your time sorting it, don't have to go rushing to a doctor in case of TS

    I love my mooncup
