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.

LOVE

okay so the biodegradable cardboard tampons are amazing! the plastic ones tend to slip out of me and i can never get a tampon in correctly. but with these cardboard ones I can get them in with no problem AND I don't have to worry about anybody seeing the applicators in the garbage and knowing I have my period.... even though i do get cranky and it is quite obvious..... but still they don't need to see that stuff

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!

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.

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.
