HOW TO USE A TAMPON
Wash your hands and get into a relaxed position (e.g. sitting on the toilet with your knees spread wide or standing with one leg raised)
Remove the outer wrapping of your tampon and hold the tampon with the string end facing away from your body
While aiming the tampon at a 45-degree angle towards the base of your spine, slowly insert the tampon into your vagina. Push inside the vaginal canal until it feels comfortable and secure
After 4-6 hours, pull gently on the tampon string until it comes out with clean hands
HOW TO REMOVE TAMPON
You should change your tampon regularly and not leave it in for more than 8 hours. We recommend changing every 4-6 hours.
If you start to feel your tampon, this is a sign it's time to change it.
First, wash your hands.
Firmly tug the string and pull the tampon
If this feels uncomfortable and dry, it might mean you are using a tampon with an absorbency that is too high for you. Try switching to a lower absorbency.
Throw your tampon away (not down the toilet!)
Wash your hands.
Immediately stop using tampons and reach out to your healthcare provider if you experience an allergic reaction, discomfort, pain, or unusual discharge when wearing a tampon.
Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is a rare illness and is caused by a toxic substance that is produced by certain kinds of bacteria. To reduce your risk of TSS, always wash your hands before and after use, use the lowest absorbency tampon necessary, wear a tampon for no more than 8 hours, and use tampons only when you have your period.
Symptoms of TSS may include: Sudden fever , Vomiting, Diarrhea, Fainting, Dizziness and rash that resembles a sunburn. If you experience any of these symptoms during your period or soon after your period, stop using tampons and immediately seek medical attention.
