Using the wrong tampon absorbency

It is important to pay attention to tampon absorbency and use the correct one for each day of your flow. The Better Health Channel reports that using a high absorbency tampon when it is not needed increases the chances of toxic shock syndrome. It can also just be very painful to remove, because when there isn’t much blood in there, the tampon sticks to your vaginal walls and can cause tiny tears when removed. All in all, tampons are the least friendly feminine hygiene product to your vagina. Why not try the menstrual cup instead? It’s better for the environment and your body.
