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.


Q: How does Tampax help stop leaks?

A:Tampax Cardboard Tampons are designed to expand widthwise to fit your individual form and have a LeakGuard skirt to help stop leaks before they happen.


Q: If I like Tampax, what other products would be right for me?

A:For the ultimate in comfortable, dependable protection during your period, next time try Tampax Pearl, Tampax Pocket Pearl, and Tampax Pearl Active tampons.

Light Cardboard Tampax

Why were the Tampax cardboard light tampons discontinued?!? They were the best tampon for every reason. They are the most comfortable to wear. They never slid out like the pearl do. The cardboard is biodegradable and is a renewable resource. They are much less expensive than the pearls. They even came in a package of only lights. Oh, it was a sad day when I could no longer find them, even online.

bring back the slender regular card board

I have used slender regular card board Tampax tampons for 30 years with no complaints. I do not want plastic applicators filling up my trash can! Please continue making the card board applicator slender regular.

You messed up P&G

The 5 star rating only applies to the product we used to be able to get. So P&G was sucked in to the goofy brilliiant and flashy boxes. Disappointing! It would have been fine to change the box but you should have left what was inside alone. Go back to the original cardboard lites. I can't find them anywhere! I tried the Pearls and they are awful. I am forced to seek a new brand since the cardboard regular and lites have disappeared.

As Comfortable as the Pearl

A lot of people think that tampons with a cardboard applicator aren't as comfortable or easy to use as the plastic applicators, but this its not true! And the cardboard applicators are much better for the environment too.

great

Just works. no scent. I love that there are no plastic pinches in the applicator and it is cardboard which is awesome. I find plastic applicators end up sliding around in my fingers and are too small, and then I touch my bits, gross.
