Preparation Instructions

HOW DO I INSERT AN APPLICATOR TAMPON? Always wash your hands thoroughly before inserting a tampon. After you have removed the tampon from the wrapper, pull the inner tube out until it comes to a stop at the bottom of the outer tube. Use your thumb and middle finger to hold the applicator on the grooved rings. Make sure the removal cord is hanging down from the inner tube. Gently tug the cord once to ensure that it is securely attached. Place the tip of the applicator into your vaginal opening and gently push the applicator into the vagina. Keep hold of the applicator using your thumb and middle finger and with your index finger gently push the smaller tube all the way into the bigger tube. Once the rings of both tubes come close to one another, the tampon has been inserted. Gently remove the applicator . If you have followed these instructions correctly one tube should now be inside the other. Once the tampon has been inserted, the removal cord should be protruding from the vaginal opening. When you're finished, wash your hands. WHEN TO CHANGE THE TAMPON By lightly tugging on the removal cord you will be able to tell if it is time to change the tampon. If the tampon does not move, it is not saturated and there is no need to change. Though your needs will depend on your individual flow, you should change your tampon 3-6 times a day. You should never leave a tampon in for more than 8 hours. We recommend that on each day of your period you use the lowest absorbency tampon needed to suit that day's flow. REMOVING THE TAMPON Relax and gently pull the removal cord so that the tampon slides out. It is easiest to remove a tampon when it is fully saturated. If you have problems removing the tampon, it could be because the tampon is not yet fully saturated. If for some reason you cannot find the removal cord, it can usually be reached from a squatting position using your fingers. Remember to remove the current tampon before inserting another and always remember to remove the last tampon at the end of your period. DISPOSAL OF THE TAMPON Wrap up the used tampon securely and dispose of it in a trash bin. We recommend you use an alternative means of disposal other than the sewage system.

Safety Warning
IMPORTANT HEALTH INFORMATION Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) is a rare but very serious (possibly fatal) illness that can occur in men, women and children. It is caused by toxin (a kind of biological poison) that is produced by a type of bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus) that is frequently present in humans. The reported risk is higher in women under 30 years of age and teenage girls. The indication of TSS is estimated to be between 1 and 17 cases of TSS per 100,000 menstruating women and girls per year. TSS can occur without tampons but has been connected with the use of tampons . TSS can be fatal and must therefore be recognized and treated early. The symptoms of TSS can appear suddenly during or just after menstruation and they closely resemble the flu. The symptoms below will not all necessarily occur at the same time: sudden high fever (usually 102°F or more) and vomiting, diarrhea, fainting or near fainting when standing up, dizziness, rash that looks like sunburn. Other signs include aching of muscles and joints, redness of the eyes, sore throat, weakness. If these symptoms appear you must: 1) Remove your tampon at once, discontinue use; 2) Seek medical attention immediately; 3) Tell your doctor that you are menstruating and that you have been informed about TSS. TSS can recur both with and without the use of tampons. If you have suffered from TSS, or are concerned about TSS, please consult your doctor before resuming tampon use. The risk of getting TSS can also be reduced by alternating tampon use with sanitary napkin use during menstrual periods.
