      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      More humid areas cause greater difficulty with low cost tampons

      I have been using tampons for nearly 28 years, and have almost always bought the lower price brand. I have lived in areas of low and high himidity. I found that in the areas of higher himidity there is a greater degree of difficulty in insertion. The tampons swell ( due to the moisture in the air) inside the applicator and cause the tampon to be flared at the tipand very hard to get it started out of the applicator. This may cause consumers to buy another, higher priced brand, or one with a plastic applicator. In areas of lower himidity, there is less or no problem with the applicator

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I first started using these tampons on my last period. Yes I know that I should not brag about the fact that I have periods. But hey 50% of the population have to go through it personally, and the other 50 % suffer at second hand either by PMT of by having to run around with the hot water bottles and pills to calm the squeezing uterus. Horrible to think about but we have to put up with this 12 times a year from the ages of about 12 to about 50. So that 38 years times by 12 equals 456. That is 456 periods in your lifetime. Therefore, you need to make sure that you something that is comfy and keeps you well protected at a good price. As Tampax are good but they cost the earth. In addition, all it is something akin to a nappy. You will use it once and then throw it in the bin. Well as I was sloping down the razor and feminine Hygiene alise of my local Asda. I had a quick look at the tampons, as I knew that I was running low. In addition, I looked their own products as they pay the VAT for you. Yes get that. It is something that we need every month and it is classed as a luxury. So we pay 17.5% vat on it. What a nice government. If we had a women at the helm, it would never happen. Wrong we did have a female head of the country and nothing happened. Will have to see what happens. We only hold 50% of the vote. If men had periods, we all know that sanitary protection would be on the NHS. Back to the story. I spied the femtex. They where £1.77 for a pack of 32 + 8 free =40. Therefore, I would be getting 40 little white mice for £1.77. That is cheaper then Asda own brand, which are 32 for about £1.89. It works out before the 8 free are 5.5 pence each. In addition, as a woman you have to use at least 3 a day. I never wear tampons at night any due to Toxic Shock Syndrome. I know that it is ok if you put one just you go to bed and then take it out as soon as get up in the morning. I have left one in for more than 8 hours.
        In addition, I panicked. I had put one in the night before to go out on my pushbike. As my flow was steady, I thought that I would get better protection. I then went out on my bike. Came back and had a shower. Forgot I had put one in, then did not realise until I tried to put another one in the next morning that I had left one in. I had such a panic attack. I had always thought that women who forgot they had one in where stupid. Moreover, I am far from stupid. However, I now know that there is no way that you can put two in. Then I know that it is bargain. Well let?s get back to the product. Well they come in a range of absorbencies Regular, super and Super Plus. It does give you the range of absorbencies in grams. However, I assume that is the grams of rayon and cotton that is in the tampon. Oh yes they even give you the ingredients which is rayon and cotton. According the packet it also had fibre lock which in other means that fibres don?t shed. Oh yes didn?t you know. That all tampons shed rayon and cotton inside of you. Not sure of what damage that will do to you. But it I personally don?t mind a little bit of shedding if it means that I can have the comfort of wearing a tampon. In addition, the cord is sewn all the way through. So that the cord will not break. Which means that you don?t have to try and get it out with your fingers? If that does not work then you will have to go to hospital to have it removed. A friends mother had to do this as the cord broke. Put me off a little bit. The other great think that these tampons is them have a posi-lock punch (traded marked) it is a little dimple that goes through each tube. As these are applicator tampons they have, two tubes one inside the other. Well this posi-lock punch seems to stop one tube falling out. I don?t know about any one else. But I have been in a toilet with the only tampon left on my person and the lower tube has fallen out on to the floor. Moreover,
        there was no way that I am going to use it after that. The regular tampons are wrapped in white packet with yellow writing on it. The writing is tampon and posi-lock punch on it. Ease of use 10/10 Femtex is a trademark of First Quality Hygienic inc. They are based in America. However, they do have an address and telephone number for the UK so that you can contact them in the case of a query. I would say that I have not had any problems with them. I know that I have only used them for a couple of days. But value for money they are great. I am not sure if they are available in all supermarkets, as I don?t tend to look. But well worth a try.
