RELATED FAQ

- Q: How long can I wear a tampon?

- A: When using tampons, it's important to choose the lowest absorbency necessary for your menstrual flow. And because the amount of flow varies from day to day, it's likely that you will need to use different absorbencies on different days of your period. Selecting the right absorbency comes with experience, but as a guide, if a tampon absorbs as much as it can and has to be changed before 4 hours, then you may want to try a higher absorbency. On the other hand, if you remove a tampon and after 4-8 hours white fiber is still showing, you should choose a lower absorbency.

The applicator doesn't work

Absolutely pointless applicator! Doesn't work! Made a real mess of a simple task. Will not be buying this again.

Bad design

Great idea but waste of money. Over half were faulty in all three packs that I purchased. Really disappointed in tampax, used them for years but will be searching for an alternative.

No, I do not recommend this product.

I cannot stand these tampons.

These are the most uncomfortable tampons I've ever used. The applicators also do not work as effectively as the regular (non compak) ones. I've been through multiple tampons before even successfully placing one. Absolutely hate it when this is my only option in the shop.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Very disappointing product

Worst I've ever used. Wasted 4 trying to actually get one placed properly. Uncomfortable and extremely fiddly to use. Will be going back to the usual Compak ones I use. Hated these, a waste of money. Actually relieved to learn I'm not the only one with this opinion!

No, I do not recommend this product.

Tampon applicator

Numerous attempts to successfully insert tampon with the applicator. Not the most hygienic for this reason.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Good only when it chose to work

Loved them until over half of them broke when applying. The whole idea of being able to pull the plastic out is pointless when it doesn't even work properly.

No, I do not recommend this product.
