Can I Wear a Tampon on a Light Flow?
The simple answer to this question is yes. Tampons with lower absorbency do not need to be changed with much frequency. This is because they can be harder to remove due to less lubrication. Keep in mind that what is important to remember is to use the right size during your period. There are different sizes for different flows. Currently, there are 5 sizes offered and during light flow, a light size or junior tampon should be used.
How Long do Light Tampons Last?
Tampons typically last 4-6 hours. It will depend on the flow of your period, as you want to make sure you do not have any accidental leakage. Also, it is important to not leave tampons in too long because this can cause infections. It can also lead to toxic shock syndrome (TSS). There are about 1 in 100,000 cases of women that are affected by TSS.
Can You Use Tampons With A Light Flow?
Yes, you can use tampons for light-flow days. It's important that you always use the smallest absorbency size possible during your menstrual flow. If you find that your light tampon feels too dry, you may not require the use of a tampon at all and you might be more comfortable switching to a pad or a liner.
It's recommended that you change your tampon between 4 and 8 hours. Never exceed 8 hours of use with a tampon. Never flush your tampon, applicator, or packaging. Place your used tampon, applicator, and packaging in a trash receptacle.
