She was either anatomically deformed or stupid!

It can't go in too far, just put it in as far as is comfortable. If it feels difficult to remove it's because it can form a bit of a vacuum - just give it a gentle squeeze to break let some air in and it will come out without any problem.


i did think it terribly strange tht she "lost" hers inside..i men were can it go ....... :dontknow: :shock:
many thanks for everyones replies though..feel much more brave again now lol xxx

I am so so pleased I bought a moon cup, it has changed periods forever!
I just have one small problem, when I go for a wee, if I am squatting like in a public toilet, I find it really hard to pee, I can't push it out, I just have to sort of let it drain! Sorry to sound gross, it is like the moon cup paralyses some of my muscles, does any one else have this strange experience?

It's only happened to me a couple of times Helen. I thought I needed a wee but nothing came out, then when I took the cup out to empty it, out came the wee as well. :lol: So yes, I have had that, but not usually. Perhaps you just need to adjust the position slightly, or maybe remove it before trying to wee.

Good luck with it witchywoo, I bought one a year or so ago, having found out about it on here, but I just never got on with it. I was always just aware of it being there and it felt like it was going to fall out :shock: .
I always have this bruised sensation down under for the first couple of days of any period which has made inserting anything difficult and uncomfortable.
I use washable pads now instead which I bought from the link below,

so there are always other options if you find it doesn't work out.

Excellent news, I knew you'd like it.

Helen, if you're having trouble in public loos just make sure you have a little bottle of water with you. You can take it out, do what you have to do and give it a quick rinse before re-inserting.

I love my cup =)!

Another tip for public loos without sinks is pee on it! Your own pee is pretty sterile and not at all dangerous to use for cleaning it.

It's not the cleaning I have a problem with!! It's the peeing!! Sounds bizarre I know but I find it really hard to pee whilst squatting with the moon cup in!

I'm trying to convince some of the women at work about trying them but they seam a little squeamish plus because I'm male they think I don't understand about periods or methods of relieving PMS. All the women I know who have one swear by them & have so far not met anyone who has not found them infinitely better than the alternative

Yes, I understand that - hence my suggestion to remove it! But do you really want to use it without at least a rinse? Maybe I didn't make my point clear. :(

Sometimes I have problems peeing with it in as well!
My bladder is notorious for being quite over active (hey, I'm an Aquarian, I AM the water bearer!) so if I've been for a wee 20 mins beforehand, I know my cup won't need emptying - and then I sit on the loo, feel like I'm having a wee, but nothing comes out - then take the cup out & niagra falls follows!

I think that sometimes, the cuff of the cup must just sit pressing on the bladder pipe in the wrong place every now & again?

As for public loos - I just give mine a quick wipe with a tissue & make sure it gets a good rinse at the next available convenient time.

But I'm still really glad I have one!!

Hello! :wave:

I've been considering purchasing a Mooncup for a few years now, but have reservations as I have Endometriosis. Does anyone know if this can cause any problems?

Also, I sometimes get the weird problems with weeing when I'm wearing a tampon. As soon as I remove it, I'm able to go again. Very odd...

I have endo too, not got a mooncup yet (pregnant at the mo) the only issue I can think of is if you have pain on intercourse, but if you can wear a tampon I doubt you'll have a problem with a mooncup. And as Keaniebean suggested if you do have problems you could switch to reusable pads (you can even make your own if you can sew!)
