When choosing your tampon, be sure to choose the lowest possible absorbency that meets your period needs. Tampons should be changed every 4 to 6 hours. At the end of this time frame, your tampon should be full, but not leaking. If you find that your tampon is overflowing at the 3 hour mark, you should try one with a higher absorbency. If your tampon is coming out dry after 6 hours, try one with a lower absorbency.
There is alot of controversy about the safety of tampons and their possible connection to women’s health conditions such as endometriosis and toxic shock syndrome (TSS). Women who enjoy the convenience of tampons but who are concerned about possible health risk often prefer the comfort of organic tampons, like the ones we create at Grace & Green, which are free from fragrances, pesticides, chemicals and bleach.
