  • Tampax are not leak proof at all and I have on occasion noticed that even a Super absorbency tampon designed for heavy flow will leak because the blood flow miraculously manages to seep through the tampon without being hindered along the way and will leak
  • But I have noticed this flaw in all tampons apart from the Pearl ones as I say
  • This is why I prefer the plastic applicators of the Compak version or the Pearl, although the cardboard ones are of course more environmentally friendly
  • I think strictly speaking, it is better to wrap these up and put them in the bin as the men who clean the drains do not like tampons apparently
  • These are a good basic brand of sanitary protection but technology has moved on and I would recommend that unless the environmental aspect is most important to you, you should try some of the newer advances in tampons from the Tampax brand

      I am reviewing the basic Tampax tampons with the cardboard applicator. These come in a range of absorbencies to suit the different flows throughout your period – the Lites, Regular, Super, Super Plus and you can also buy a very handy Tampax Multi Pack with a number of each of the absorbencies, which is great to cater for the different stages of your period. I started using this basic brand of applicator tampon back when I first started my period as I simply could not

      insert a tampon easily without an applicator and Tampax is the most trusted brand.

      The only tampons I have ever found with great absorbency and less tendency to leak than these ones are the Tampax Pearl which I use more often than any other variety of tampon. Tampax are not leak proof at all and I have on occasion noticed that even a Super absorbency tampon designed for heavy flow will leak because the blood flow miraculously manages to seep through the tampon without being hindered along the way and will leak. On these occasions I can remove the tampon to see that the majority of it is bone dry and there is just this streak of blood going all the way down to the leak. But I have noticed this flaw in all tampons apart from the Pearl ones as I say. The cardboard applicator is smooth and glossy which makes it usually easy to insert, unless I have crushed it in my bag and it has become bent or ...

      it has got damp and gone a bit soft. This is why I prefer the plastic applicators of the Compak version or the Pearl, although the cardboard ones are of course more environmentally friendly. The wrappers are paper as well and I would usually flush both the wrapper and the tampon down the lavatory in my own house, although if I am at work I never risk that and I will put it in the sanitary bin instead lest I embarrass myself by blocking the
      loo. I have never blocked the loo doing this in my own home though I have to say. I think strictly speaking, it is better to wrap these up and put them in the bin as the men who clean the drains do not like tampons apparently.

      These are a good basic brand of sanitary protection but technology has moved on and I would recommend that unless the environmental aspect is most important to you, you should try some of the newer advances in tampons from the Tampax brand.
