How To Use Tampons

Lots of girls feel more comfortable using pads while they get used to having their period, but there are no rules. You can start using tampons straight away if you feel like it. Try using Mini tampons to begin with. When you feel more confident, there are different absorbencies you can try according to how heavy your flow is. Here’s a little run down to give you an idea of which Kotex® tampons are available in the Kotex® range:

Mini tampons for when you have a light flow or in the first or last days of your period
Regular tampons for medium flow
Super tampons when your flow is heavy, particularly in the middle of your period
You can also just check out the back of any Kotex® Tampons pack to work out which absorbency is best for you.


All Kotex® Tampons have a twist open wrapper, plus we have made sure you always stay perfectly styled – there is a mix of funky colours in each box with super stylish packaging to bring a little sparkle to your day.
