Hi BeingGirl Experts,
I just got this e-mail from a friend of mine who says that using Tampax Pearl tampons can cause yeast infections. Is this real, or is it a hoax????
Dear Pearl Girl,
We just heard about this e-mail. It alleges that fibers left in the vagina from Tampax Pearl cause yeast infections and other problems. THIS IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE! Tampax Pearl is made out of the same fibers (materials) that have been used safely by millions of Tampax users for over 25 years, and tampons DON'T cause yeast infections.
We want you to know that the safety of the girls and women who use our products is very important to us, and we're especially concerned when rumors circulate that may cause fear and confusion.
Thanks for checking with us first before you circulated this e-mail.
