  • Unfortunately, for me they have always been painful to insert as they are so dry and simply absorb all moisture from my vaginal wall as I am trying to do it which makes it an ordeal trying to get the thing in
  • I have also noticed the same phenomenon happens with Lil-Lets as can happen with the Tampax tampons, where it can leak although much of the tampon has not absorbed any blood at all, but this happens less often with a Lil-Let tampon

      Apparently, you can now buy Lil-Lets Tampons with an applicator but here I am reviewing the non-applicator tampons that have been around for years. Lil-Lets are short, very compacted tampons with grooves down the side which supposedly make them easier to insert. Unfortunately, for me they have always been painful to insert as they are so dry and simply absorb all moisture from my vaginal wall as I am trying to do it which makes it an ordeal trying to get the thing in. I tried to use Lil-Lets when I first started my period but I simply could not use them and reverted to the Tampax applicator tampons soon after

      and have used Tampax ever since for the most part. The key difference with Lil-Lets tampons is that they expand widthways which is supposed to make you less prone to leaking and I can remember the old advert where they would drop a Lil-Let into a tube of water and you could see how they would expand to form a plug, whereas the tampon in the other glass tube would be shown to be not such a secure, protective plug which would not touch all sides of your vaginal wall.

      These tampons come individually wrapped and kept hygienic in clear cellophane with a little tab so you can open them easily. If you ...


      • can actually insert them OK they are as adequate when it comes to the absorbency factor as a Tampax tampon is, but I do not think there is any particular advantage to the widthways expansion of it even though you would imagine there would be. Because they are difficult to insert, I have found that it has leaked because I have inserted it incorrectly and it is sitting at an angle and somehow the blood has leaked out. I have also noticed the same phenomenon happens with Lil-Lets as can happen with the Tampax tampons, where it can leak although much of the tampon has not absorbed any blood at all, but
        this happens less often with a Lil-Let tampon. You can even buy them in a Super Plus Extra absorbency which I have tried and it is very good at coping with the heavy flow at the start of my period, although with all tampons, when I have a heavy flow I used a sanitary towel as well.

        These non-applicator tampons are obviously better for the environment than other types, and the absorption of these is fairly adequate, although unfortunately for me, I find these too uncomfortable to buy unless there is very little choice in the shop. But I have enough trouble during the time of my period to be messing about with these I am afraid.
