Tampons are female hygiene products that absorb menstrual flow. They are cylindrical in shape and are made of cotton, rayon, or a combination of the two. Tampons are considered medical devices that are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. Different designs are ideal for different kinds of menstrual flows and are available in various absorbencies, such as light, regular, and super. Organic tampons contain pesticide-free cotton that contains no chemical dyes and fragrances, while regular non-organic types contain cotton and chlorine-bleached synthetic rayon, scents, and dyes. Browse through Staples health supplies section for varieties of personal and long-term care products.

Tampon special features 
Tampons have a string attached to the cotton core. This string pulls it out after the recommended hours of use. Different units have different leak-prevention features. Some have backup protection referred to as a leak guard to prevent leakage. In contrast, others have a core and channel potential leaks back into the core, giving the user eight hours free of worry.  

Tampons have a smooth removal layer that allows easy removal and an anti-slip grip on some tampons without strings, to ensure they fit comfortably without slipping away. Others have form-fitting features that ensure the tampon expands gently into individual shapes of the users, giving maximum comfort. Others expand radially to ensure maximum absorption and have a smooth, rounded tip for easy insertion. Some tampons are easy to dispose of as the user can flush them if the particular brand recommends it.

For traveling users, tampons travel packs are ideal as they offer a gap-free fit made from fiber that ensures maximum absorption.

Types of tampon applicators
Applicators are materials used to insert a tampon. The two types available are cardboard and plastic applicators, both of which have similar shapes. The plastic applicators allow smooth entry and are a good fit for first-timers and continued users. Cardboard applicators are eco-friendly and cheaper to purchase as compared to the plastic applicators. Flushable cardboard applicators are also available.

Are tampons or pads more convenient?
Different users have varying preferences guided mostly by their lifestyles. Tampons allow women to take part in their favorite activities, including swimming, without worrying about leakage. Some women prefer pads and find them convenient and more comfortable. If worn right, tampons can be very comfortable. 

Does inserting a tampon hurt?
No. Inserting a tampon is usually not painful if done correctly. It's advisable to see a physician if you experience any discomfort, pain, or unusual discharge. If the painful symptoms persist, it is advisable to take a break from using tampons. In case of an allergic reaction, quit using immediately, and seek medical attention.

How regularly should you change your tampons?
Change tampons every 4 to 8 hours, depending on the intensity of menstrual flow. At night, they can be inserted right before bedtime and changed immediately after waking up in the morning. While tampons are very safe for use, wearing one for longer than eight hours can cause infections.
