RELATED FAQ

Q: How long can I wear a tampon?

A: When using tampons, it's important to choose the lowest absorbency necessary for your menstrual flow. And because the amount of flow varies from day to day, it's likely that you will need to use different absorbencies on different days of your period. Selecting the right absorbency comes with experience, but as a guide, if a tampon absorbs as much as it can and has to be changed before 4 hours, then you may want to try a higher absorbency. On the other hand, if you remove a tampon and after 4-8 hours white fiber is still showing, you should choose a lower absorbency.

Great Product

I'm a 24 year veteran of the good ole period, and as long as you know how to use tampons, everything should be fine. Over the years, between cardboard applicators, no applicators, I am so happy they have come out with new plastic applicators with a grip on them. I have tried several through samplers from other companies, or just buying them to try them out, and these have been the best I've used. Easy to insert, don't even notice I'm using them, easy to take out. I hate using pads, and with others tampons sometimes I had to use panty liners just incase they leak, but even if I forget about these for a few hours after I should have taken them out, they still hold strong. All sizes. Love them. I love the plastic applicator, just wish they were flushable. That was the only good thing about the cardboard applicator or no applicator ones. To the other two who gave a bad review, if your a first time user, it may just be that you're not use to them or you're not putting them in right. It took me a couple years, off and on, of trying to finally figure them out. Don't give up like I did. You'll get it figured out. To the other one, if they're pinching, which I assume you mean where the plunger stop going any further, try opening wider. I've never been pinched, and have never had a problem with them being uncomfortable.

Excellent for light flows

These tampons are great if your flow doesn't really require a regular tampon. The plastic applicator is super easy to use as well. I just wish more stores would stock them!

Great for Beginners

I've had my period for 12 years now and have used nothing but pads. I have tried using tampons about 3 time within those years and never figured out how to use them. Last month i was determined to learn and tried again. I decided to use these because of the small applicator, and let me say FINALLY!! Amazing product. Its so slim and didn't have a problem using them. I'm a lot heavier to be using the lites which meant that I had to change them a few a times a day. But for those who want to learn to use tampons for the first time, I definitely recommend these.

Amazing!

This tampon was my first official tampon (the first box that my mom knows about) and it was much easier to use than the Tampax Pearl Plastic Lites Tampons. I couldn't feel it at all and it lasted for quite a while! Very pleased! Good job, Tampax!
