There are many misunderstandings and misconceptions surrounding the usage of tampons. So why shouldn’t we clear some of them for you?

How many times have you wanted to try a tampon during your periods but the many things that you might have heard or read on the internet have made you stop short? We understand the hesitation as there are many myths that surround the usage of tampons. Tampons, like sanitary napkins happen to be some of the best sanitary products that help you brilliantly during your periods. So to ensure you have a safe and comfortable period, we would like to clear some of these misunderstandings and misconceptions for you.

Myth 1: Inserting a tampon hurts

Fact: Inserting a tampon should not hurt. There are many types of tampons available in the market of different tampon brands. The ones with the applicator happen to be the most comfortable and easy to insert without any problems. The only time that one can feel a little uncomfortable when inserting or removing a tampon is when the vagina is dry on low flow days.

When you are on your periods, your vagina is naturally lubricated and this helps the tampon insertion much easier and effortless.

Myth 2: You can feel the tampon inside you

Fact:  If a tampon has been inserted correctly, then you should not feel the tampon inside you at all. A tampon essentially, when inserted correctly and far enough, will sit in the upper portion of the vagina, which is far from the opening, and this is why one cannot feel the tampon inside.

Myth 3: Tampon might fall out

Fact: A tampon cannot fall out if it has been inserted in the right fashion. As mentioned above, when the tampon sits in the upper portion of the vagina, your vagina naturally holds the tampon in place ensuring that it does not fall out. It will also not fall out if you are running around or doing something active. The only chance of it falling out is when you have to put in a little too much effort in pooping. Because of this effort, the tampon might come out. In such a case, simply insert a new one.

Myth 4: Tampon might get lost inside

Fact: Tampons do not get lost inside. First you have a string that helps you pull the tampon out with ease. If you are still having issues removing the tampon then the best thing to do is to pretend that you are pooping and to push in a similar fashion. This will help push down the tampon easily.

Myth 5: One can lose their virginity when they use a tampon

Fact: The basic definition of virginity is essentially more cultural and tied to societal definitions than medical or scientific explanations. Another concept that explains virginity is the “breaking” of the hymen via vaginal sex. However, the hymen can also be broken or diminished gradually even through rigorous physical activities.

These are some of the myths that have been spread about tampons quite often and we are glad that we have been able to clear some of them up for you. When you plan to purchase sanitary pads online, have a look on the tampons price also and then decide which one to purchase.
