Meet your handy lil' step-by-step guide on how to insert and remove your tampon.
Are organic cotton tampons better for you? Can you still get TSS if you use organic cotton tampons? We answer your FAQs and de-bunk some common misconceptions.
From how to insert, to how to remove, to knowing when to remove - here are your most FAQ's on tampons, answered!
Period blood flows in various different shades - here's what they mean...
Gently open your labia using the index and middle finger of one hand and using the other, insert the tip of the tampon into your vagina, angled towards your tailbone. Insert it the tampon approximately the length of your index finger and leave the string hanging outside the entrance for easy removal.
Every pack of Moxie tampons comes complete with a set of instructions (with diagrams), but if you want to suss these out before you buy, check out our 'how-to insert a tampon' guide.
Yes, you sure can! Those with a uterus have three holes: the urethra (where you pee from, at the top just under the clitoris), the vagina - where you period from - and the anus, where you poop from. You may just want to tuck the string out of the way before-hand so you don't get wee on it (though it's no big deal if you do).
Whilst there are no proven health 'benefits' to using organic tampons, organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides and chemical fertilisers, so there's no chance of those ending up in your body through organic tampon usage. Some people also have skin sensitivities to synthetic fibres and so organic cotton might be a good option for them.
All tampons, regardless of what they're made from, carry the same risks associated with Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). Be sure to always follow the instructions for us to help reduce your risk.
If you're new to tampons, we suggest trying the smallest size first as they may be easier to insert. Then as you get to understand your flow and feel more confident with tampon usage, you can switch to using a larger size or higher absorbency (though only ever use the lowest absorbency possible for your flow).
Tampon use in general really comes down to whether you feel comfortable inserting something into your vagina or not - your body, period, your choice!
