Directions for Use Enclosed: Tampons come in standardized industry-wide absorbencies. Use the chart for comparing absorbencies of all industry products. The risk of toxic shock syndrome (TSS) increases with higher absorbency. In order to reduce your risk of TSS, you should use the lowest absorbency that meets your needs. Use for 8 hours maximum. Ranges Absorbency in Grams: 6 and under; Absorbency: Light absorbency; Ranges Absorbency in Grams: 6 to 9; Absorbency: Regular absorbency; Ranges Absorbency in Grams: 9 to 12; Absorbency: Super absorbency; Ranges Absorbency in Grams: 12 to 15; Absorbency: Super Plus absorbency; Ranges Absorbency in Grams: 15 to 18; Absorbency: Ultra absorbency. Do not flush. Use for 8 hours maximum. How to Use: It's much easier to insert a tampon when you're relaxed. If you're unsure about what to do, refer to the instructions below. You got this. A tampon is actually made up of two parts - the tampon itself that you insert into your body, and the plastic applicator you use to insert it. 1. Wash your hands and then unwrap the tampon. The slim applicator tip should be rounded and the strings should hand out the bottom of the applicator. If you notice any flaws or deformities, do not use the tampon. 2. Place the rounded tip of the applicator at the vaginal opening. Insert the applicator: hold the bottom of the larger tube applicator using your thumb and middle finger. 3. Now, using your index finger gently slide the smaller inner tube all the way into the large outer tube and into your vagina until your fingers touch your body. 4. Gently pull out the applicator and throw it in the trash. Do not flush the plastic applicator. The tampon should now be comfortably inside you in its precise place with the string outside your body. When the tampon is correctly placed, you should not feel anything. If you feel uncomfortable, it is likely that you have not inserted the tampon sufficiently deep enough. If so, you should remove the tampon and insert a new one. When should I change the tampon? You should change your tampon 3-6 times a day, or every 4-8 hours. Tampons can be left overnight for up to 8 hours. You should never leave a tampon in for more than eight hours at a time. Removing of your tampon should be easy. Slowly and gently pull on the withdrawal string to remove it from your body. If the tampon is dry or difficult to remove, relax and do not pull on the string. Try removal again in 1 hour. The absorbency may be too high, or the tampon has not absorbed enough liquid. Always make sure that you have removed the last tampon before inserting another. Do not use tampons between periods or for non-menstrual discharge. Be sure to remove the last tampon you use at the end of your period. Disposal of tampon Wrap used tampon securely and dispose of it in a trash bin. Do not flush the wrapper. Do not flush the applicator down the toilet for any reason under any circumstances. Do not flush. What's in L. Tampon? L. Tampons are made with 100% organic cotton and wrapped in a plastic applicator. L. Tampons do not contain rayon, chlorine bleaching, fragrances, or dyes. For every L. product purchased, one is made accessible to another person. Which absorbency should I use? Every period is a little different; some are really light, while others are heavy. Our tampons are available in five styles: Light: less than 6 grams, for days with lighter flow. Regular: between 6-9 grams, for days with medium flow. Super: between 9-12 grams, for days with medium to heavy flow. Super Plus: between 12-15 grams, for days with heavy flow. Ultra: between 15-18 grams, for days with very heavy flow. Always use the lowest absorbency needed to suit that day's flow. Why? To lower your risk of developing Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). What is TSS? Toxic Shock Syndrome is a rare but serious and potentially fatal illness that can occur in women, men and children. It is caused by toxins produced by a type of bacteria called Staphylococcus aureus that is commonly found on the skin and inside the nose and vagina. The risk of contracting TSS is highest among teenagers and women under the age of 30. The FDA estimates that the incidence of TSS is 1 to 17 per 100,000 menstruating women and girls per year. You can reduce your risk of getting TSS by using tampons with the lowest absorbency necessary to cover your needs and by changing your tampon regularly, in addition to alternating using tampons and pads during your period. Although it is infrequent, it is important to know the symptoms in order to identify the illness if necessary. Early diagnosis and treatment are necessary. Symptoms can appear suddenly during or just after menstruation and closely resemble those of the flu. The following symptoms can indicate a possible TSS infection: -Sudden high fever: (>102 degrees F or 39 degrees C) and chills. -Fainting, dizziness, weakness. -Headache, muscle aches, sore throat. -Sunburn-like rash. If you have one or more of these symptoms, you should remove your tampon immediately and contact your local doctor for immediate treatment. Tell your doctor that you have been using tampons and think that you may have TSS. If you have experienced TSS warning signs in the past consult your physician before using tampons. If you have any questions about TSS or tampon use, consult your physician.
