Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I heard that it's bad to use scented tampons. Is this true???

Dear Kara,

Although there's much less menstrual odor when you use a tampon, there are women who prefer a scented tampon. The tampon collects the menstrual fluid in the vagina, and it is not exposed to air; therefore, little or no odor results. But, it is really a matter of personal choice.

 

Good luck,

Your BeingGirl Experts

@girlychick tampons don't cause infection unless they are in for more than 8 hours. Although scented tampons can cause irritation. I haven't started my period yet but I'm pretty sure I will soon. I think that I am only going to use pads. Maybe I'll use tampons when needed.

When your in sports or dance like me its more comfortable in my opinion to wear tampons because they are more loose feeling. I think you can start wearing tampons at any times because I started wearing them on my first period:).

I have heard that a unscented tampon is best.

I've had my period for 9 years, and have been using tampons for 2 and half years. I've accidentally picked up scented tampons multiple times, then picked up them intentionally several times after that. I seem to alternate between unscented and scented depending how I feel that day. I've never experienced any kind of infection or any problems with scented tampons, just a pleasant scent when I take a new tampon out of the box :)
