Do you struggle with rashes and itching while you’re on your period? It’s time to switch to tampons! Do you face major FOMO when you can’t go swimming during that time of the month? Switch to tampons! Do you have to deal with leakage because your sanitary pad doesn’t stay in place? Like I said, switch to tampons! Well, tampons are the answer to all your period discomfort. But if you still are unsure, we’re here for you. Here are five benefits that will convince you to give tampons a try:
What Are Tampons?
You might have already heard about this very popular period product. But for the unversed, a tampon is a cylindrical menstrual product made with absorbent material. Unlike sanitary pads, tampons are worn internally. They are inserted into the vagina to absorb your period blood and expand as they soak up your menstrual fluids.
What Are The Benefits Of Using A Tampon?
Given the taboo around menstruation and the toxic obsession with a woman’s virginity, tampons are often highly misunderstood. But here’s the deal, they don’t “devirginise” you. Logically speaking, one can only “lose their virginity” after having sexual intercourse. All tampons really do is—provide much-needed comfort during your periods. Here are five benefits of using tampons:
They Keep Your Intimate Area Happy
Constant contact between your damp sanitary pads and sensitive genital skin can lead to itching, irritation, and rashes. However, tampons keep these problems at bay as they’re worn internally. The result? A fresh and clean intimate area even while you’re riding the messy red wave.
Tampons Give You Freedom
Going swimming or living your best life at a beach vacay–even while you’re on your period–is a distant dream for sanitary pad users. That’s because the pads aren’t exactly bikini-friendly. They would be visible even if you opt for a modest swimsuit. More importantly, it’s unhygienic to swim with a pad on as they tend to swell up in the water and spread germs. Tampons, on the other hand, are discreet and won’t be visible even if you opt for a thong. Plus, you can actually enjoy a carefree swim without the fear of leakages or germ transfer while wearing a tampon.
They Keep Leakages At Bay
When it comes to preventing leakages, sanitary pads can get displaced easily during a rigorous movement or within a few hours as the glue wears off. Enter tampons: your vaginal muscles help tampons to stay intact and act as an absorbent plug that keeps the blood from leaking. In fact, you can wear them for three-four hours even if you’re into sports or an athletic activity and you won’t have to worry about blood stains.
They’re Easy To Use
You might feel like inserting a tampon is a daunting task. But trust us, it’s super-easy. All you’ve got to do is—sit with your legs wide open, open the folds of vaginal skin using the tip of the tampon and slide it in gently. Take a little walk test to see if all’s well. A couple of trials and you’ll get there fosho and once you do, you will never look back, we promise.
They Have A No-Wear Feel
Since pads are always in close contact with your genital skin, you’d always feel like you’re wearing something. The sensation gets even worse as the pads soak up more blood and become heavier and damp. However, once you wear a tampon, you won’t even feel like you’re wearing anything at all. So give tampons a go and forget all about your period-discomfort miseries.
