Organic Tampons A General Overview

In the management of menstrual bleeding, no matter which product is purchased
from the corner medical store or supermarket, it comes with a bunch of additives
to make it more appealing to the senses. These are, of course, harmful additives
that are also used to make the tampon or pad more absorbent. Regulated by the
food and drug administration (FDA), tampons are categorized as “class II medical
devices,” which equates it to products such as contact lenses and condoms. Now
there are a few considerations in the use of these tampons, not to mention
personal preferences.

For the environmentally conscious, the typical menstrual bleeding management
product takes five hundred to eight hundred years to disintegrate and blend into
the earth. While the organic products take around six months to diffuse on the
planet, the cotton used in the processing of an organic tampon has to have been
grown under a set of 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 organisms (GMO). Grown
without the use of pesticides and free from whitening agents such as chlorine.

Now for the management of menstrual bleeding, personal preferences, and the
health of the vagina, through the menstrual years, what matters most is the
personal comfort level, choice of activities undertaken, and perfect health in the
use of the product you choose. However, with the use of organic tampons, here
are some of the reported benefits; you have the freedom to indulge in just about
any activity you choose, including swimming. Probably the only activity that
requires caution while a tampon is inserted is sexual intercourse. If sexual
intercourse does happen inadvertently, while a tampon is inserted, the tampon
gets shoved high up into the vaginal canal and pushes against the cervix and
uterus; this can be a very uncomfortable feeling. Not that it is irretrievable or lost
inside the system, but just that the discomfort is not something anyone wants to
go through.

Further, it does not affect the passage of urine. The tampon goes a little higher
than the opening of the tip of the urethra (the exit point of urine) and is not a
blockage or hindrance, and no tampons don’t need a change on every visit to the
loo to pee. Using a tampon as opposed to a pad, one can rest assured of no
leakage and absolutely no visibility through attire, no matter what one wears. And
finally, an organic tampon does not get lost or forgotten in the anatomy after
insertion. It has a string with which it can be retrieved and disposed of
appropriately.

So, organic tampons are the way to go. They are just as hygienic if not more so
than ordinary pads; they give one the confidence to indulge in just about any
activity that comes to mind, gives one the courage to carry oneself, without a
doubt of a pads visibility or a stain on attire.
