1. With clean hands, unwrap a
new Tampax Pearl Lite. The outer tube is the part that goes into you,
and the thinner tube is the part that pushes the tampon in. The string hangs out.
2.Get comfy. Lots
of girls like to stand up with their knees bent. Some girls sit on the toilet. This
is all about YOU – so do whatever feels best.
3. Now it's time to try!
Hold the applicator lightly on the Anti-Slip GripTM area– where
the outer tube and inner tube meet. Gently push the outer tube into the opening
of your vagina, aiming it towards your lower back, until your fingers touch your
body. Now push the inner tube into the outer tube (this pushes the tampon into your
vagina). Pull out the applicator, and presto! You're done!
To remove a tampon, relax your muscles. Slowly and gently pull the removal string
(don't worry, it's securely sewn throughout the tampon). If the tampon's hard to
pull out, it probably hasn't absorbed enough fluid yet. Always use a tampon with
the lowest absorbency for your flow.
Don't worry if the whole thing takes a few tries to get right – that's totally
When a tampon's in correctly, you shouldn't even be able to feel it. And you won't
have to miss out on anything this summer, even when you've got your Monthly Gift!
