BeingGirl Points - Major Bragging Rights
Back to My Period Questions
Dear BeingGirl Experts,
I have a question. My sister uses Tampax tampons which have a cardboard applicator. I use the ones with the plastic smooth-tipped applicator. The ones I use are shorter and hers are longer. I think her regular is more absorbent than my regular. I am debating which to use. I like my applicator better because it's more comfortable, but I like the fact that hers holds more. Can you help?
Tampon absorbency is regulated by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). Every regular absorbency tampon regardless of the brand will hold the same amount of menstrual fluid, even if there are slight differences in the physical size or design of the tampon.
