Figuring out what kind of menstrual device to use while on your period can be confusing

and overwhelming.

So we’re here to help you learn about one of these - tampons!

Tampons are small cylindrical products made out of materials like cotton or rayon and

are inserted inside the vagina to absorb menstrual bleeding.

Once you figure out how to use them, they are extremely comfortable but unfortunately

are not always 100% leak proof.

They come in many forms and materials as well such as with plastic or cardboard applicators

that make it easier to insert or without any applicator.

You can also buy them in different absorbency levels from light, to regular to super and

can also be made of organic, chemical free materials.

No matter the type - they all come with a string at one end for easy removal.

There is no minimum age for using a tampon, but if you’re a beginner it might be easiest

to start with using one with an applicator.

It’s also important to remember that using a more absorbent version does not guarantee

a leak free experience and in rare situations can lead to toxic shock syndrome.

The best thing you can do is use the lowest absorbency first and then change it based

on your experience.

The most important thing for first time users is to relax, its normal to be nervous, and

don’t be afraid to ask a friend, sister, mom or doctor for guidance as well!

It’s a good idea to try it out on a moderate to heavy day as inserting it into a dry space
