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.

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!

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.

Have You Discontinued Cardboard Lites/Slender?

I have relied on Tampax for over 20 years but I am concerned that I can no longer find cardboard Lites or Slender Regular. I agree with the dozens of other reviews I've seen that it is disgusting to fill landfills with plastic tampon applicators. I will switch to other brands before I will switch to plastic. Please don't disappoint so many loyal customers.

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.

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.

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!
