Tampons (maybe tmi)

I recently got a coupon for a free box of playtex tampons, so I decided to buy them. I can get them in with no problem but when I try to take them out it is like they are getting stuck. They come out but i have to pull really hard on the strings. Is there an easier way to get them out?

  • they are probably too high of an absorbency for you

  • May mean that those aren't the style for you. I personally don't like Playtex or O.B. tampons and only use Tampax because they work best for and with me.

  • The same thing happens to me, just figure out when you can change them when they're not so full, or go for a smaller tampon.
    It still happens to me, but I just use pads now, and tampons when I think it's going to be more comfortable like going to the store, or somewhere and I change when I get home.

  • I agree with the first post,if I put the wrong size in I have a hard time getting it out.
