Before you start, wash your hands

1. First, relax and find a comfortable position - either sitting on the toilet with knees apart, or standing with one foot on the toilet seat. Unwrap the tampon. Look at the applicator. Notice that the tip is rounded and the strings are attached. The middle of the applicator has a ridged fingergrip; hold it between your thumb and finger. If any flaw is noted do not use. While holding fingergrip, gently pull on strings to make sure they are firmly attached.


2. Next, place the rounded tip into your vagina. Aim the tampon toward your lower back rather than straight up, and gently slide the tampon applicator into your body. Your finger and thumb will keep the tampon from going in too far


3. Then, gently push the small tube of the applicator into the larger tube, which is already inside your body. Now remove the applicator.


4. The soft tampon will remain inside your body and it will slightly expand to absorb the menstrual fluid. Strings connected to the tampon will hang outside of your body. The tampon should feel comfortable; in fact, you probably won’t be able to feel it at all.


5. After 4-8 hours, you’ll want to change the tampon. To remove it, sit on the toilet and pull gently on the strings until the tampon slides out of your body. Always remove the last tampon at the end of your period and never use tampons between periods.
Pads
Pads are worn outside your body. Pads have an adhesive strip that sticks to the inside of your underwear. They also come in a variety of sizes and absorbencies – from regular – overnight use. You should change pads every few hours for proper hygiene and odor control.
Tampons

Tampons are worn internally. Lots of women like using tampons because they don’t show – even under fitted clothes. Plus, they allows you to be active and do any activity that you want even when you have your period!


Using tampons may seem a little awkward at first, but after a few tries, you’ll get the hang of it. When the tampons is inserted already, you shouldn’t feel a thing. With a little practice, you will find tampons are easy to use and comfortable to wear.


Playtex Product, Inc. makes various tampons to suit all your need and we also offer slender applicator. When you get first period, you should plan to use regular Absorbency Tampons. Always use the lowest absobency you need in order to control your period. You change your tampon every 4-8 hours, perhaps more if your flow is heavier. Playtex also makes tampons that comes in higher absorbensies.


What is Toxic Shock Syndrome or TSS?


Toxic Shock Syndrome is very rare but potential fatal disease that associated with tampon use.


WARNING SIGNS OF TSS ARE, FOR EXAMPLE, SUDDEN FEVER (USUALLY 102° F OR MORE), VOMITING, DIARRHEA, FAINTING OR NEAR FAINTING WHEN STANDING UP, DIZZINESS, OR A RASH THAT LOOKS LIKE A SUNBURN.


THESE SIGNS OR OTHER SIGNS OF TSS APPEAR, YOU SHOULD REMOVE THE TAMPON AT ONCE, DISCONTINUE USE, AND SEE YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY.


IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT TSS: There is risk of TSS to all women using tampons during their menstrual period. TSS is a rare but serious disease that may cause death. There are scientific studies that have concluded that tampons contribute to the cause of TSS.

The reported risks are higher to women under 30 years of age and teenage girls. The incidence of TSS is estimated to be between 1 and 17 cases of TSS per 100,000 menstruating women and girls per year.


REDUCING YOUR RISK OF TSS:You can reduce the risk of developing TSS during your period by alternating tampons with feminine pads.
You can avoid any possible risk of getting tampon-associated TSS by not using tampons.

There are scientific studies which have concluded that higher absorbency tampons increase the risk of TSS. You should select the minimum absorbency needed to control your flow to reduce the risk of developing TSS.

Tampons are available in a range of absorbencies: Regular Absorbency (6-9 grams), Super Absorbency (9-12 grams) and Super Plus Absorbency (12-15 grams). Each absorbency range represents the grams of fluid that can be absorbed by all manufacturers' tampons based on a standardized laboratory test. Use this information to compare the absorbency of these tampons to other brands.

If you have had warning signs of TSS in the past, you should check with your doctor before using tampons again.


Consult your doctor if you have any questions about tampon use and TSS.


It’s time to debunk those strange menstruation myths! Whatever stories you’ve heard about tampons, we are here to tell you they are simply not true! Read on to clear your mind.

Q: Can a tampon be pushed too far inside my body?
A: No, The opening at the end of the vagina, the cervix, is too small to allow a tampon to pass through. It just can't happen.

Q: Can a tampon "float away" inside my body?
A: No. In addition to the cervix being too small, the walls of the vagina hold the tampon in place. The tampon will stay put until you take it out.

Q: The first time I tried using a tampon, it was totally uncomfortable. And when I tried taking it out it hurt. Am I someone who can't use tampons?
A: Definitely not. Sometimes tampons are inserted incorrectly (usually they're not in far enough) and they feel weird. The fact that it hurt when you pulled it out is because tampons are designed to expand in your body. When you pull out a dry tampon that's only been in your vagina a short time, it can be uncomfortable. Next time, give the tampon a chance to absorb some of your menstrual flow. That way it won't be dry and won't drag along your delicate vaginal lining.

Q: I read on the Internet that there are all kinds of toxic chemicals in tampons. Is that true?
A: We all know how easy it is for the wrong information to get passed on the Internet. However, there are government organizations like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that have strict requirements for the production of tampons to make sure they are free from any harmful materials.
