Hey beautiful ladies,
I am back with another post on Everything you need to know series. This time it is about the Tampon facts as promised in my last post.
Tampons are great. I personally find it super comfortable and fuss free and would never like to switch back to pads. I would highly recommend it if you haven’t tried it yet. I am sure you must have found myth-busting post on tampons helpful and informative.
So here are some facts about Tampons you need to know before you start using them.
1. Types of tampons
There are two basic types: one that comes with an applicator and one that comes without. Initially, you could use the applicator tampons and gradually move on to non-applicator ones when you’re used to it. If you are not sure about how to use it you must read the instruction pamphlet and i am sure you will find it helpful or you can only refer to some videos which clearly shows you all the steps.
2. Tampons are available in India.
Tampons are available at any chemist outlets and can be ordered online as well. Mostly O.b pro comfort is available and it is super comfortable and are priced for 195 inr for 20 tampons
3.Different sizes of Tampons.
Tampons come in flow types—heavy, medium, and light. You can choose which one suits you best and which one suits what part of your period.
4. You can sleep with a tampon on.
I have been loving it ever since i started using them because there is absolutely no reason you should worry about sleeping with a tampon on. In fact, tampons can prevent staining on your clothes and bed sheet far more efficiently than a pad.
5. It can prevent staining.
When worn properly and changed in time), tampons can be a blessing, especially, if you’re doing anything that demands a lot of movement. It prevents staining and you don’t need to face any awkward and embarrassing moments. Most sportswomen prefer tampons over any other menstrual hygiene product. Now you know the reason :p
6. You can swim wearing tampons.
You cant use Sanitary napkins while swimming but with a tampon, you can. Wearing a tampon can be a blessing for a regular swimmer, or someone who’s making a trip to the beach. Water also relaxes your system and helps reduce cramps and muscle spasms. A tampon can be your faithful friend to keep you stress free, while getting rid of the already mind-numbing pain.
7. Tampons cannot fall out.
Tampons can’t just ‘slip out’ of your vagina because of your cervix, its not a never ending tunnel!. When you want to remove it, all you need to do is relax your muscles and tug at the string and pull out the tampon the way you inserted it. You might feel a little weird at first but it will be okay after you get a hang on it.
8. Must change your Tampon within 4 hours.
Wearing a tampon for more than 24 hours could possibly increase your risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS)—a very rare, yet life threatening infection. So, to be on the safer side, make sure you don’t wear your tampon beyond 8 hours. Ideally, on a heavy flow day, change your tampon every 3-4 hours.
