The individual product descriptions are as follows: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. The Mooncup contains no bleaches, deodorisers or absorbency gels. It does not interfere with your healthy vaginal environment, nor has it been associated with toxic shock syndrome. The smooth surface of the Mooncup allows the mucus membranes of your vaginal wall to continue their essential cleansing and protective functions. The Mooncup does not absorb your body's natural defence mechanisms and will not deposit fibres in your vaginal wall. For your safety the Mooncup is made from a special medical grade non-allergic silicone. Silicone is derived from silica which is one of the most abundant minerals on earth.It will not cause irritation and is suitable for women with sensitive skin, thrush, eczema or allergy. The Mooncup can be cleaned in the same way as baby equipment: with sterilising fluid, or by boiling for five minutes in an open pan of water. Unlike pads and tampons the Mooncup menstrual cup is reusable, eliminating the need to carry bulky spares. With proper care your Mooncup will last for several years. The Mooncup is available in two sizes. This Mooncup is Size A You may choose to have Size B. If you wish to do so please state this in the comments box on checkout. Size A measures 46mm in diameter and 50mm in length. Size B measures 43 mm in diameter and 50mm in length. Both sizes have a pull stem 21mm long, which you can trim to the length that is right for you. Size A is recommended for women who have given birth vaginally or who have had a caesarean section and are aged 30 or above. Size B is recommended for women who have not given birth or who have had a caesarean section and are aged below 30. Please ensure that you select the correct size. For hygiene reasons we cannot exchange Mooncups once they have been dispatched. : Wee Notion Teen/Cup pads are a new design suitable for menstrual cup wearers or for teens/petite women. They have narrower wings at the sides than the traditional Fairy Hammock so they may be a better fit on underwear that looks like shorts. Topped with a stunning minkee or cottton fabric, there is one absorbent layer of bamboo terry which goes across the whole pad. The backing of the pad is waterproof PUL with a polycotton finish to the outside which has a quality feel and gives a better grip on underwear. These pads are flexible in width as they have 4 poppers on them enabling you to choose the width that suits you best. The length of these pads is 8 inches (20cm) and the width goes from 3 inches (7.5cm) on the outside poppers to 2.5 inches (6cm) on the inner poppers. On the smallest setting a 2 inch (5cm) width is available although this is not recommended as it may cause bunching in your underwear.
