Tampon FAQs

How do I remove a tampon

Removing tampons is easy. Just pull the string at the same angle in which you inserted the tampon. If you ever lose the string, it’s not the end of the world. Get into a squatting position and gently remove the tampon with your fingers.

Can I insert a tampon too far

There’s no chance of that. The cervix (the opening to your uterus) is too small for a tampon to fit through so there’s no need to stress.

How often should I change my tampon

Once menstrual fluid comes in contact with air, it can start to smell a bit icky– definitely not something you want! To make sure you stay fresh, it’s best to change your tampon roughly every four hours. You might need to change more often if you have a heavy flow, and never leave your tampon in for more than eight hours.

How do I know when its time to change my tampon

A light tug on the cord will let you know if it’s time to change.
If there is a lot of resistance, you can leave the tampon in for a bit longer. If you’re finding it difficult to remove the tampon after four to five hours, it may be a sign that you should be using a tampon with a lower absorbency. For example, if you’re using a regular tampon, try a mini.

Can I leave the tampon in overnight

Tampons should never be left in for more than eight hours – an overnight pad is recommended while you get your beauty sleep. U by Kotex® Flexinights Overnight Ultrathins pads will provide you with the comfort and protection you need to get through the night.

Can I go swimming and play sport while I have my period

For sure! In fact, the more active you are, the less likely you are to get cramps. You’ll need to use a tampon if you want to go swimming. It’s best to insert a fresh tampon just before you go swimming and then change it once you’re out of the water.

How do I dispose of a used tampon

You should never flush tampons down the toilet as they may block the plumbing system. Your school and public toilets provide special sanitary bins, so wrap your used tampon in some toilet paper, and place it in the bin provided. If you can’t find one of these special bins (you probably won’t have one at home), don’t fret, just wrap the tampon in toilet paper (or put it in a bag) and then pop it in the bin.
