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!

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.

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.

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! :)
