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.

AAAAAA-mazing!

These were the tampons that I got started on and I love that the cardboard tampon has evolved so much in the almost 8 years since I started my period. I love the fact that it has the new grips and that the applicator and wrapper are flush-able (convenient when you are over at a guy's house and you don't want to leave any "evidence" behind.) Would definitely recommend a hundred times over to a friend - especially one that is conscience of how much waste they are saving with the biodegradable applicator! :)

Best Applicator

I really have only ever purchased tampons with cardboard applicators or no applicators at all. I was intimidated buy the open ended tip on these applicators at first, but now I realize they are so much better. No scraping from thin cardboard edges when I insert this one, and the cardboard tube is super sturdy with a comfortable gloss finish. Where this tampon applicator really shines is the anti-slip grip. Super comfortable to hold and I don't have a problem with it getting slippery like I do with other cardboard applicators. The design and sturdiness of the applicator prevents the tubes from coming apart, a problem I have with almost all other cardboard applicators. The only downside is I really only like using the lites. The tampon is tiny, the applicator is brilliant and slim. I've never ever used a super tampon before in my life so this multipax is a bust. I would stop buying my regular organic cotton tampons with cardboard applicators if I could buy the lite tampons separately. The tampon itself could use improvements but it is comfortable so I don't have many complaints about it. I would use a less than ideal tampon just to use the incredible applicator, and I know that sounds weird, because applicators are not entirely necessary, but they are certainly useful when conditions are not all that sanitary, like public bathrooms. These tampons are just so easy to use it is almost joyous.

It's all I buy

It's a great product and I don't purchase any other kind. It provides a lot of protection and is just as comfortable and unnoticeable as the other "fancier" brands and styles (like the all-plastic kinds).

Tampax is my first choice in tampons.

Tampax is my first choice in tampons. I prefer the cardboard applicator because it is biodegradable, comfortable and easy to use. I have been using Tampax for 30 years, I like and trust this product.

Harder to find

I having been using the tampax cardboard since I was 12 and started my period. I have noticed in the last year that it is getting harder to find the slender and lites. These are all that I use but had to try the plastic version when I went to target because they were taken out of their set. I hope that you are not planning to take these out of your line. I do not like the plastic at all becasue not only the lack of comfort but the thought of plastic just irritates me. I live in a farming community and now have to drive 50 miles to get these since Safeway and Shopko have taken them out of their sets also. I am hoping that Walmart does not follow suit. I do not use any other sizes so the multi pack is a waste of my money. I was quite irratated and concerned when I found on the outside of my last box to try the plastic. Please do not discontinue making these or make them so hard to find.
