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.

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.

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.

Comfortable and Flushable!

It's getting harder and harder to find cardboard applicators... everyone seems to be going to plastic. What a waste. It's bad for the environment and doesn't add any additional comfort as far as I've noticed. I've tried most brands, but keep coming back to this one because it's great, it's environmentally friendlier, and it's flushable! Bonus. I just wish they made it in some of the fun colors plastic gets.

Can't find Lites

Tampax Regular are fine but I need the Lite some days and I can't find them anymore. The cardboard are much more comfortable than the plastic Pearl. Please bring back the slender regular or lite - please!

Former Loyal Customer

I have been usingTampax cardboard applicator for 20 years. Suddenly I cannot find them on store shelves and Costco stopped carrying them. I can't stand throwing away that many plastic applicators and loved the biodegradable quality of the cardboard. I'm no longer using your product and will instead stock up on the generic cardboard applicator tampons, CVS and Walgreens make comparable brands.
