Where are my female readers, get in here. Let’s talk about tampons.
I remember when I used to say I’m not a fan of of tampons. In fact, I was among the anti-tampon squad but curiosity wouldn’t let me be great. In addition, going commando on most days made me realize I’d appreciate tampon more.
The first time I tried using it, I could not sleep. I felt like I had blocked my breathing system. It was as if someone had decided to pull out all my intestines in one night.
Creepy, yeah? Very!
And did I remove it? No. I am just too stubborn even for my own good!?♀️ I just wanted to know what it feels like. In the morning, I realize I did not insert it properly, so I tried again…hahahaha, fancy you thinking I would give up. No I don’t. Besides, the joy of sleeping naked is next to none.
I have worn pads for the longest part of my years, so I guess it’s easy for me to weigh the pros of using a tampon.
Very small minute something yet very effective. It can easily fit into any size of bag or purse without being detected. You’d only think I’m holding a stick sweet or not even holding anything at all. This however doesn’t mean I’m ashamed of my periods.
2. No Wet Sensation
When I was using pads, I most time get nudged to switch when I start feeling that wet sensation and it can really be so annoying especially when I’m in a public event. But with a tampon, I easily feel the need to change without unnecessarily dripping wet or concerned about menstrual blood sitting in my underwear for too long.
3. Freedom of Movement.
This reminds me of those younger days when I try to save my pocket money and go for these cheaper pads. I always feel like I’m wearing a diaper! Even from my movement you can tell that I’m wearing a bullet proof in between my legs. Yeah it’s that bad. But with tampon, you won’t even feel like you are on your period. Life remain the same and even more better.
4. Swimming in Your Tampons
Where are my pool lovers! Tampons afford you the freedom to take a dive into the pool even when you are on your period because it is worn inside the body unlike pads that are worn outside the body. You do not even want to take such chances and embarrass your generation… that’s a joke.
5. Heavy Flow
Tampons helps hold in a good quantity of blood and it’s so easy to discard and insert another. Well, Always Pad has improved a great deal but I’m still not sure how it can hold such amount of blood without getting the user all stained hence tampons it is for me.
Whether pads or tampons, both have its advantages and disadvantages. But for the purpose of this post, I have decided to form a holy alliance with The Almighty Tampon. Maybe I would form a bond with pads in future posts ?
So what do you think darlings, pad or tampons? What’s your biggest fear of using tampons? Do you think pads should stay winning and tampons should be discouraged? Share your thoughts…
P.S: Using a Tampon will not disvirgin you! There are already holes in the hymen of teen girls to let menstrual blood flow through them; a tampon’s insertion won’t clear the whole thing away like a cobweb.
