Keeping this in consideration, what does the blue line on a tampon mean?
Tampons designed to provide the last line of defence. "Each tampon has a blue safety zone at the base made of special Ultrasorb material that quickly draws in potential leaks and locks them away," says Li-Anne Hide, brand manager for Kotex.
Likewise, how do u wrap a tampon? The most responsible and respectful way to dispose of a tampon is to wrap it or place it in something and throw it in the garbage. For discretion, you can wrap the tampon in toilet paper or a facial tissue and then toss. You can also buy small bags made for wrapping tampons or pads in before disposal.
Consequently, what's the difference between regular and super tampons?
Regular tampons hold between 6 and 9 grams of menstrual blood, super tampons hold between 9 and 12, super-plus hold between 12 to 15, and ultra hold 15 to 18 grams (approximately twice the amount of regular tampons). It's also worth noting that while Toxic Shock Syndrome is rare, it can be life-threatening.
How do you know what size tampon to use?
To choose the right tampon size for you, start with a regular absorbency tampon, which is the smallest common absorbency level. If your tampon is still dry after 4 to 6 hours, you're using the right absorbency level. If you have to change more frequently, pick a higher absorbency level, such as super or super plus.
