A tampon is a little plug that is made of cotton that goes inside your vagina during your period to absorb blood. Tampons come in two variants: Tampons with applicators and Tampons without applicators.
1) Relax. It’s is going to be a little daunting if it’s your first time. But trust us, it gets easier with each application.
2) Hygiene is key. You don’t want unwashed hands touching your privates. That can lead to nasty infections. So, start with cleaning your hands.
3) Get in a comfortable position. Now, depending on what tampon you have, use either your finger or the applicator to insert the tampon in your vagina.
4) Removing a tampon. Every tampon comes with a string attached, which is used to pull it out when you’re done with it. It is recommended to switch it every 4-8 hours.
5) Discarding the tampon. Once you’re done using the tampon, wrap it in a piece of toilet paper and chuck it in your dustbin. Never flush it.
