Come on, hand in hand, teach you how to use tampons.

If two girls are walking side by side, one of them suddenly slows down and walks behind the other. There is no doubt that 300% of her is helping the girl in front to see if her aunt has leaked out! Therefore, this time Ji Ge introduced to her sisters a [sharp weapon] to liberate women-tampons.

I don’t want to leak after the side leak anymore!

One of Ji Ge’s good sisters recently started using tampons. She said this:

In the past, when I used menstruation towel, I left traces of my struggle with menstruation on chairs, sofas, beds… Now I use tampons, So easy! Mom no longer has to worry about my side leakage, back leakage and all kinds of leakage!

It is said that most girls who have experienced tampons feel that it is really easier to use them than ever before.

What do tampons look like?

There are two basic types of tampons:

Finger-in type: There is only a layer of plastic paper packaging outside the tampon. After unpacking, you need to directly poke the tampon [in] with your fingers. The friction is large, the difficulty coefficient is high, and the use experience is poor. Advantages? Probably environmental protection… … …

Catheter type: The outside of the tampon is packed with plastic tubules, and the friction is relatively small when pushed in, which is more suitable for beginners.

Like menstruation towels, tampons have different sizes and absorption specifications. They also need to be replaced in time. You can’t forget if you can’t insert them!

Preparation before use

(1) Choose the right sliver

If it is the first time to use it, it is recommended to try it on the days when menstruation has a large quantity, and choose a thinner tampon with a smaller suction, so that it is easier to put it in.

② Wash hands

Wash and dry your hands before use.

③ Check the sliver

Pull the rope at the end of the tampon to ensure it is stable and will not be torn off.

④ Choose a good posture

You can squat, sit, stand, lift one leg on the toilet… In short, choose a safe posture to spread your legs apart to ensure that you will not fall down.

Teach you to use tampons hand in hand.

What Jige wants to introduce here is the use method of catheter tampon. The principle of finger-in tampon is similar, but it is slightly troublesome.

① Pull out the sliver

Hold the upper end of the inner catheter (thin tube) and pull it out in the direction of the arrow. After hearing the [click] sound, stop pulling it out.

② Inserting the catheter

Hold the handle of the outer catheter (thick tube), aim at the vaginal opening, relax, and slowly push the thick tube into the vagina in a direction of about 45 degrees until the thumb touches the vaginal opening and stops.

(3) Put in the cotton sliver

Slowly push the inner catheter inward with your index finger until it overlaps with the outer catheter to ensure that the thread on the tampon is always outside.

④ Take out the catheter

Take out the inner and outer catheters together and be careful to avoid pulling the cotton thread.

How do I know if the tampons are ready?

If the tampon is placed in the right position, there will be no foreign body feeling. If there is feeling, it may be that the position is too shallow or the angle is wrong.

The tampon should be placed in the middle of the vagina, close to the cervix. Visually speaking, if it is a finger-in tampon, it is probably necessary to put the finger into the depth of the two knuckles of the vagina before it can be placed in the correct position.

It is normal to fail for the first time. You can take it out directly and try a new one.

Yes, yes, I know tampons are more expensive, but please don’t take out the used tampons repeatedly, put them in, take them out, put them in…

Tampons should be replaced in time.

It is better to change tampons every 4 ~ 6 hours, not more than 8 hours at most.

If the tampon is left in the body for too long, there is a risk of causing [toxic shock syndrome (TSS)].

TSS is not caused by tampons themselves, but there is a problem with the way they are used.

If the cotton sliver has too strong absorption and is kept in the body for too long, the vaginal environment will become dry and fragile. If Staphylococcus aureus takes the opportunity to enter the blood circulation system at this time, it may threaten life.

Er, are you scared? In fact, it is not bad. The probability of TSS during menstruation is very low. In the United States, the probability is 1.41/100,000 people/year, and the risk is higher for young girls aged 13-24 [1].

In a word, I would like to remind all girls that they must change tampons in time, especially not to sleep in. They should change tampons every 8 hours at most.


Q: Can virgins use tampons?


The hymen is an elastic membranous tissue, and the tampon can completely pass through the hole in its middle. However, about 2% of women’s hymen have very small holes and are not suitable for tampon use.

If there is really a psychological barrier, Ji Ge will not force Amway.

Q: Can’t you pee with tampons?

The girl who asked this question is really cute. The tampon is put into the vagina and is not a hole in the urethra, which will not affect urination.

Q: Do you need to change tampons when you go to the toilet?

In theory, it is not necessary to change the tampon every time you urinate, but if it is large, it is recommended to change it. Intestinal activity may cause the tampon to shift and make people uncomfortable. If the cotton thread is dirty, it is also unhygienic.

For the sister who has not used tampons, it is hard to avoid some hesitation in her heart, so if you have any questions, you can also directly ask Ji Ge in the comment area.
