How To Use Organic Tampons

To experience the best results of an organic tampon, you should also have a fair
understanding of what an “organic” tampon is, and how to use it safely. An
organic tampon is one that uses pure cotton in the processing. An organic tampon
has to have been grown under a set of stringent guidelines that deem it organic
cotton, and therefore suitable for the processing of organic tampons. To begin
with, the cotton needs to be grown from seeds that are not genetically modified
(GMO). Genetically modified are seeds that are engineered in a laboratory to
speed up and increase the productivity of cotton. The plantation also needs to be
grown without the use of pesticides and free from whitening agents such as
chlorine. So when choosing organic tampons for yourself, you need to ensure the
label states that it is indeed an organic product.

Step one would be to cleanse hands and stay lax; this is not rocket science, so
don’t tense your muscles down there. On examination, you will notice that the
tampon comes with a plastic applicator, which helps to insert the tampon
correctly. The tampon applicator is a tapered, barrel-like structure with a plunger
on the other end. The tapered end is the part which is placed at the vagina while
two fingers hold the other end of the barrel, which is slightly roughened to allow a
better grip and the thumb rests on the plunger. Once inserted at a forty-five-
degree angle, gently press the barrel upward up till the fingers touch the vagina
exterior, now press the plunger fully into the barrel to release the tampon. That
being done, withdraw the applicator while the tampon is left in position high up in
the vagina, with just the string hanging out of the vagina. The applicator, as
mentioned, is a plastic body used only for the insertion process and now needs to
be disposed of appropriately, not flushed. Now for the removal at changing time,
get in the same position as at the time of insertion and relax the vaginal muscles
and then gently tug on the string, the whole tampon comes out and needs to be
wrapped in tissue and put in the bin, not flushed.

Some other pointers might be to double-check with the healthcare provider, the
kind of menstrual management product they recommend for one’s specific needs and situation. In any case, whether the organic tampon is the recommendation of
the healthcare professional or personal preference, things to keep in mind and do
a practice of are; one, use a tampon only during the menstrual cycle, not at other
times. Change tampons every four to eight hours, depending on the quantum of
flow experienced. Use the appropriate absorbency tampon, implying if one can go
eight hours without the need for a change, then most definitely a lower
absorbency tampon is required. That is something that you will discover for
yourselves.
