The truth is, we are on our periods for one-seventh of our active lives — that's at least five full years if we add it all up! Whether you spend those days trickling, gushing or staining, it makes sense that there are occasions when tampons are just right. For those of you who are hesitant to incorporate tampons as an alternative in your monthly routine, here are a dozen reasons why you should reconsider!
When its the right absorbency and properly inserted, you hardly know you are wearing a tampon. What's better than forgetting you have your period altogether? (But don't forget to change the tampon every 4-8 hours!)
Because they stay inside the body, tampons are less likely to cause an odour. Odour occurs when blood has the opportunity to hit the air.
They cannot be seen through tight clothing, like this season's jeans or any season's leggings.
You can swim and run and participate in other sports comfortably while wearing tampons, completely hiding the fact that you've got your period.
With a tampon, there’s no uncomfortable irritation or rubbing between your legs.
It fits so easily in your pencil case!
Some cardboard tampon applicators are flushable and biodegradable.
You can simply wrap and throw all tampons away.
Tampons can be carried around in the tiniest pocket or handbag.
The fact that tampons are so small makes them a cinch to pack. Take a week's worth wherever you go!
Because there are so many size and absorbency options (and multipacks that let you buy several of each size!), it’s pretty easy to get exactly the absorbency you need on different days of you cycle.
The summer, short shorts, white trousers, the beach ... 'nuff said.
Did we forget any reasons why tampons are amazing?
