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.

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.

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!

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.

The Best Nothing comes close

I have used the cardboard Tampax tampons for years now. I have always had very heavy periods and feel secure in knowing that with this brand in the super keep me well protected. I have tried other brands claiming to be super protection and they do not do the job, not even close or as comfortable as Tampax.

Where are the slender regulars and lites cardboards???

Dear Tampax,For 36 years I have used your cardboard tampons - Slender Regular and then Lites. Now you've not only turned them into non-flushable plastic to fill up the trash bins of the world, but have taken away the Slenders and make the Lites available in a small quantity along with the bigger tampons. I don't want all the big ones in order to get the little ones!!! I've always had a lighter flow and don't appreciate you pulling my tampons almost entirely off the market because you think they needed to be "prettier" or more glamorous in recent years. There was nothing wrong with the fit then and there's nothing wrong with it now. I've tried the Pearls and the wrapping comes off as soon as I touch it and I want to be able to flush it instead of adding it to the plastic paradise floating out in the sea because you think it feels "silkier". It's a tampon, not a thong. The plastic feels cheap and the travels are a waste of time. They don't pull out correctly. Don't fix what's not broken, and please bring back what we liked in the first place. My official review on the Regulars is: they are perfect if you need regular size. They are too big for me!

Best Combo Pack!

Please continue to make these cardboard tampons, both as a multipack and individually. I love having the different absorbancy options in one box. However, I see you discontinued the Lites in their own box. Please bring them back! There are lots of environmentally conscious ladies who continue to use and love your cardboard applicators. No plastic for me!
