can someone tell me what the difference is?
ive eventually decided to buy one (i keep putting it off and dont know why.. so want one for when my pads are all gone..) but i dont know what the difference is apart from the price...

im putting this on both green and alternitive parenting as it covers both :lol:

LOL Looks like I'm the only one so far.

I've never heard of the femmecup but I've used a mooncup for over 5 years now and would never go back to disposable menstrual protection. Not only is it a far more environmentally friendly form of protection (a sanitary towel/tampon takes as long as a disposable nappy to biodegrade) it's also saved me a small fortune over the years because I have very heavy periods and used to use a 40 pack of super plus tampons as well as 3 or 4 packs of pads each month. Now I just use my mooncup and a few cloth pads as back up.

thanks :)
ive been going to buy one since i found them when pregnant but i keep putting buying it off, and i dont know why, so ive decided to buy one so its here when the pads run out (only 1 pack left) so idea is to try it out on next period and use the pads for back up untill im used to it...

went to order one yesterday and i seen the femmecup and ive read some good reviews as well, so thought id get some info...
think its a mooncup im going for :)

Just read this and think I'm going to go for a Mooncup too. I keep meaning to get one, but I just keep forgetting to order it. The AF comes along and it reminds`me!! :lol:

I'm definitely going to get one though. I think I remember seeing that if you bought it from Mooncup direct on their website, they gave you 3 months to try it and would give your money back if you didn't get on with it. Seems like a good idea. Can't remember where that was though. :roll: If I find it, I'll post the link.

I can't find the 3 month guarantee bit on the website any more.
They seem to be out of stock anyway!!!
Plenty of other places do them though.
