Applicator Tampons: What's The Easiest?

Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I was reading how you put in a tampon, and it said you needed to twist the cardboard. Does that hurt? Is it easier to use a cardboard or plastic applicator?

Dear Barb,

Twisting the cardboard does not hurt. Tampax Flushable Cardboard tampons, which have smooth cardboard applicators are biodegradable and flushable and are as easy to insert as plastic applicator tampons. Tampons should only be inserted when you have your period, which makes them easier to insert because of the lubrication from your menstrual flow. Check this [link to OBJ003] out for the insertion details.

 

It can take some practice to learn to insert a tampon easily, as any new learning experience requires. It is a good idea to wait to use tampons until you have a regular period and understand your flow.

 

If you want to try a plastic tampon, check out Tampax Pearl tampons. Some girls think inserting a plastic applicator is easy and comfortable.

 

Good Luck.

I prefer plastic, but my mom hardly ever buys plastic so I do use cardboard. They are not as easy to insert, but if my dad is around then I use cardboard so I can just flush the wrapper AND applicator down the toilet.

I prefer plastic applicators, cardboard ones scare me, especially putting in to apply the tampon. Advice to new tampon users: I just got my first tampon in yesterday, and the Tampax Pearl Compak tampons are the ones to use, their very small, and easy to store and hand off to your friends.
