Mooncup Australia? – What is it and where can I buy one?
Mooncup is actually the name of a Uk branded menstrual cup. However, it is also not uncommon to hear people refer to menstrual cups as mooncups. Similar to the way many people refer to paracetamol by the brand name Panadol.
What is a Menstrual Cup?
A menstrual cup (sometimes generically referred to as a mooncup), is a soft reusable cup that is usually made from medical grade silicone. The cup is inserted inside the vagina to collect menstrual fluid during a woman’s period and can be worn for up to 8 hours before needing to be emptied. The use of menstrual cups in Australia is becoming more and more popular as Australian women realise the financial and environmental benefits of these reusable silicone cups.
The Mooncup Brand
As mentioned above, Mooncup is also the brand name of a UK based and well known menstrual cup. The Mooncup brand is essentially the same in design and function as other brands that are currently available in our store, such as Juju cup, Diva cup, Lunette cup, Ruby cup, and Saalt cups (to name a few). The Mooncup menstrual cup is currently not available for retail purchase in Australian stores and does need to be purchased direct through their UK website.
