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.

Sometimes the originals are better!

I use the original Tampax cardbord applicator tampons. I have found, for me, they work better than any other tampon I have tried, including the Tampax Pearls. I like the Pearls but I have leakage issues when I used them and I never have that problem with the Tampax Flushable Cardboard tampons. Keep up the good work Tampax!

Great

Unlike others that have reviewed this product, I love it! I'm only 18 so haven't been using Tampax for years and years, just started actually and it's 100% better than any other brand I've tried. Sure, there's a little leakage if I leave it in too long and my flow is heavy- but that's my fault.I have no problems with the skirt either.I just wear a liner or light pad with the tampon for extra protection anyways- always have even with other brands.

In Reference to Slender reg

So you have this great product and after 30 years you suddenly decide to remove it? What are you thinking?You are increasing your plastic applicators when your whole brand was based on a biodegradable product. Now when more and more studies show us the harmfulness of plastic and its toxicness of how it breakdowns in the environment. The increased levels of long term pollution - you change.You disappoint me and I am leaning towards buying the kotex sleek ultra as at least then I can get a good comfort level. But I abhor plastic so not a great solution.I also noticed recently I am unable to buy lites with cardboard applicator, unless I want to buy a mixed box, again i am saddened that you are forcing me to stop buying from you.

Love Cardboard. Miss Lites!

Please bring back the Lites with the cardboard applicator. Regular and Slender are great, but some days the lites are all I need.

Light Cardboard Tampax

Why were the Tampax cardboard light tampons discontinued?!? They were the best tampon for every reason. They are the most comfortable to wear. They never slid out like the pearl do. The cardboard is biodegradable and is a renewable resource. They are much less expensive than the pearls. They even came in a package of only lights. Oh, it was a sad day when I could no longer find them, even online.
