How to make a tampon for treatment


This method of treatment is applied not only at the beginning of the disease, but also in advanced forms. The use of gynecological tampons promotes rapid recovery after an operation has been performed on the internal genitals.

Do not confuse the gynecological swab with the usual hygienic, which many women use during menstruation. You can not take a hygiene product and soak it with a medicinal composition, because its purpose is to absorb menstrual flow.

Most often this treatment is used in such diseases of the reproductive system in women:

  • thrush,
  • fibroids, fibroids,
  • cervical erosion,
  • endometriosis,
  • inflammation of the appendages,
  • polyps.

Even with high efficiency of treatment, you should not do it yourself. The thing is that the reaction of each organism to one or another drug or folk remedy with which a tampon is saturated can be unpredictable. Therefore, you can begin treatment only after consultation with your doctor.

What kind of view is possible?

A medical tampon can be cylindrical (similar to hygienic) or round. The medicine is in the middle.

It is very important that the size and shape are chosen correctly. The drug should be easy to enter the vagina, not to create discomfort for the woman, being inside. And after use it is easy to be taken out.

What is it made of? How to store?

How to make such a treatment? Depending on which medication will be used at the base, the form is selected. If the medicine needs to be placed in the middle, it is more convenient to choose the shape of a ball, which is made of cotton and wrapped in a sterile bandage or gauze. If it is soaked with medicine, the shape can be both round and cylindrical.

It is very important that the tampon, made independently at home, is sterile, because it will be inserted into the vagina. For its manufacture use only new and sterile materials: cotton, bandage, gauze. Scissors to be used in the process, you need to wipe with alcohol or sterilize. All manipulations are done exclusively with sterile gloves.

It should also be noted that cotton wool will expand when moisture gets on it. Therefore, it must be tightly tied with thread.

After inserting the tampon into the vagina, its tips must remain outside in order to be able to reach it.

Keep made tampons need in a new package of polyethylene, getting one at a time as needed. You can make them for a few days or for the entire course of treatment. To use, strictly following recommendations of the doctor.

Making a tampon cylindrical shape

It does not take a lot of time and effort to make a remedy on your own. There are no difficulties. In appearance, a medical tampon is similar to the one used by women during their periods.

  1. From a piece of cotton to form a cylinder, similar in shape to the store swab.
  2. Wrap over thread.
  3. Formed cotton cylinder wrap with gauze or bandage, tie the ends at the base. Process drug and can be inserted into the vagina. A woman will not feel any discomfort if entered correctly. After use, carefully remove from the vagina by the tips.

Making a tampon with your own hands

Self-production of personal care products at home should be based on sterility. Contact with the mucous membrane of pathogenic microorganisms and other harmful bacteria is unacceptable. Before the manufacture of the subject of hygiene it is necessary to conduct a number of additional preparatory activities:

  1. Wash hands with soap and water, preferably several times.
  2. Wear sterile medical gloves.
  3. Process tools (scissors) with alcohol or another antiseptic.
  4. The working surface, on which all the items needed to make a tampon are located, should be thoroughly washed and wiped dry. Worktop antiseptic.

After the sterility is provided, it is necessary to proceed with the manufacture. A step-by-step guide to learn how to make a tampon from a bandage:

  • Check whether all components are in close proximity to the workplace.
  • Wrap the bandage and cotton wool gently open. It is recommended to take sterile materials.
  • Roll a small piece of cotton wool into a tight ball. In order for it not to break up, the ball can be wrapped with a thread dipped in alcohol.
  • Stretch the bandage, visually measure out 20 cm and cut.
  • Do strip the bandage sticking stitching threads.
  • Tape folded in two layers.
  • Place a cotton ball on the center of the strip.
  • Connect the edges of the tape so that the cotton is inside the bandage.
  • Tie edges with sterilized thread, leaving a long tip. This allows you to easily remove the tampon from the vagina.

The ball must be extremely dense. Otherwise, there may be problems with the introduction of the tampon.

The use of homemade tampons

In addition to using self-made hygienic tampons during menstruation, tampons can be used for various diseases of the reproductive system. Pharmaceuticals are not suitable for medical therapy. The main function of these tampons is to absorb a large amount of liquid. The subject of hygiene greatly swells, so their impregnation with the medicinal composition becomes impossible.

Self-made vaginal cylinder allows you to ensure the penetration of any dosage form on the mucous membrane. When the tampon is soaked with the medication, the necessary drug enters the vagina, a few seconds after the cylinder is injected.

Similar means apply at the following diseases:

  • Inflammation of the appendages (adnexitis).
  • Inflammation of the uterine cervix (cervicitis).
  • Inflammation of the vaginal mucosa (colpitis).
  • Inflammation or damage to circulatory tissue (parametritis).
  • Thrush (vaginal candidiasis).

Homemade tampons can be used for infertility and erosion. It is important to use a gynecologist before using a self-made cylinder.

What is needed to make a tampon?

Before making a self-made vaginal cylinder, you must check that all necessary items are in your home medicine chest. Due to the fact that the tools are often used in gynecology, women with diseases of the reproductive system should always have the following materials on hand:

Making hygiene products from gauze or bandage does not take much time. It is important to remember that the structure of the vaginal cylinder must be sufficiently dense.

What a tampon should look like

A homemade cotton and bandage tampon can be round, square or cylindrical. It is necessary to make an anatomically convenient tampon that will not cause discomfort.

Oval or rounded tampons look like a small ball with a diameter of several centimeters. A lump of cotton should be dense, gauze or bandage is best folded in several layers. The tampon has a small "tail", which is not recommended to be cut off. If the item is inserted shallowly, it can be pulled out by pulling the edges of the bandage.

A square or rectangular swab is made entirely from a bandage. A strip 50–60 cm long must be folded in several layers. This forms a rectangle, which is additionally wrapped in pre-sterilized threads. The girth of a piece of cheesecloth is criss-cross. It is necessary to leave a long section of the thread, with the help of which the object is removed outside of the vagina.

A cylindrical tampon should be made of cotton wool. Connect several dense balls of cotton with each other with a needle and thread. The resulting compressed material fix thread. To do this, it is enough to tie a knot under the last lump of cotton. Thread under the root can not be cut, the tip should remain. Cotton balls wrap folded in 2–3 layers of a bandage, the edges can be sewn or simply tied with threads.

How to make on the basis of drugs?

Additional components with which the vaginal cylinders are soaked should be prescribed by a doctor depending on the intensity of the course of the disease. This may be a solution or other medical forms. Often a tampon is soaked with sea buckthorn or other oil or the juice of medicinal plants.

Reproductive system diseases and treatment of tampons:

  • Adnexitis. Garlic is considered a popular remedy for this disease. In no case should the cylinder soaked in concentrated garlic juice be placed in the vagina. This will cause severe burns of the mucous membranes. For impregnation, it is enough to mix 3 drops of garlic juice with 25 ml of boiled warm water.
  • Cervicitis. Gynecologists advise to wrap in the swab agave pulp or moisten the cylinder in the juice obtained from aloe. This plant has pronounced anti-inflammatory properties and reduces pain and accelerates recovery.
  • Colpit In order to remove irritation from the mucous membrane of the vagina, a hygienic agent must be moistened in sea buckthorn oil. The cylinder must be pressed, it must be wet. Sea buckthorn oil has a calming and antimicrobial effect.
  • Parametritis. For the treatment of this disease it is necessary to make a mixture of honey and beeswax. Propolis must be melted on a steam bath, mixed with honey and heated for 5 minutes. Both components must be taken in equal shares. This tool will allow you to stop the reproduction of bacteria and speed up recovery.
  • Thrush. In this disease onion helps impregnation. The principle of action is the same as that of garlic - the drug has a strong antimicrobial effect on pathogenic fungi. Onions, as well as garlic, can not be used in its pure form. Onion (1/3 part) wipe on a fine grater. Scald the puree with boiling water and squeeze lightly. The cooled mass is evenly distributed over the vaginal cylinder and inserted into the vagina.

In addition to the means of alternative medicine, homemade tampons can be combined with pharmaceutical preparations. Medicines often have a paste-like form, creams and ointments are used. The use of powdered means is permissible, but due to poor permeability, they are rarely used. For therapeutic purposes, the following drugs are applied to cotton-gauze cylinders:

  • Levomekol.
  • Liniment Vishnevsky.
  • Mumie.
  • Pimafucin


The use of gynecological tampons, made by hand, should be carried out with the permission of the attending physician. The most common contraindications include:

  • Anatomical features of the structure. This pathology is rare and can only be identified by a specialist.
  • Age restrictions. The use of homemade personal care products is not recommended during adolescence, especially if the patient does not live sexually.
  • Pregnancy and postpartum period. During pregnancy, the use of tampons is allowed for health reasons. In the first weeks after birth, until the menstrual cycle is restored, cotton-gauze cylinders cannot be inserted into the vagina.

In addition, regular use may cause dry mucous membranes. Experts recommend taking breaks between periods of treatment in order to give the body time to rest and recover.

Opinion gynecologists

The use of medicinal tampons has several advantages and disadvantages. Gynecologists warn of the possible harm of vaginal cylinders. Hygiene items should be inserted into the vagina no more than once a day, mostly before bedtime. At this time, the body activates protective processes. It speeds up the healing process.

The course of treatment should not exceed 10 days. If necessary, the treatment period can be extended with the permission of a specialist. It is best to take breaks in the 5-7 days between courses. Alternative medicine, especially honey, can cause an allergic reaction. Gynecologists recommend before the treatment to do an allergy test.

All materials used in the manufacture of self-made vaginal cotton-gauze balls and cylinders must be only sterile. If there is no miramistin or other antiseptic in the first-aid kit, disinfection of instruments and work surfaces can be carried out using alcoholic infusions.

Personal hygiene products impregnated with a special compound are not considered to be an independent drug. Hygiene products work most effectively as part of complex therapy, together with medicines that are active in diseases of the reproductive system.

Why the remedies for critical days are not suitable for gynecological treatment

It should be understood that the usual hygienic means that women use to protect during menstruation, is a deliberately different task. They are designed to absorb abundant blood discharge, while during the period of therapy requires the maximum impact of the drug drug.

It is difficult to impregnate an agent manufactured industrially with the active substance, especially with a viscous consistency medicine. And if this can be done, problems with the procedure of inserting the device into the vagina are not excluded (the vaginal cylinder may increase in size, as in the photo, even before the procedure begins).

Another argument against industrial tampons is the possibility of a feeling of dryness in the vagina due to the high absorbent properties of the compressed material.

With which diseases can homemade tampons come in handy

Most often, homemade products are used in the treatment of the following gynecological diseases:

  • adnexitis (inflammation of the appendages),
  • cervicitis (inflammation of the cervix),
  • colpitis (lesions of the vaginal mucosa),
  • parametritis (infectious-inflammatory damage to the tissue around the uterus),
  • candidiasis ("thrush").

Materials for production

Before you do your own swab for treatment in gynecology, you should make sure that the house has everything you need:

  • sterile gauze or bandage
  • sterile medical gloves
  • needle and thread,
  • scissors,
  • cotton wool.

All tools used must be decontaminated beforehand with an alcohol solution or by boiling. The thread used will also be treated properly with an antiseptic.

Cotton-gauze swab

Consider the instructions with a photo: how to make a medical tampon with a bandage and cotton.

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly, but rather use medical gloves.
  2. Separate a strip about 20 cm long from the bandage.
  3. Roll a cotton ball, the diameter of which is 2-3 cm.
  4. Roll the resulting ribbon in half and place a cotton ball between the formed layers of matter.
  5. With a thread treated with alcohol, tie the gauze directly under the cotton ball.
  6. Apply a medicine to the cotton ball and insert it inside the vagina.

If everything is done correctly, then as a result the head of the tampon should turn out to be rather dense, otherwise problems with the introduction of the product may arise.

Bandage (gauze)

Let's talk about how to make a tampon with your own hands from gauze or bandage.

  1. Conduct preparatory hygiene procedures.
  2. Cut a tape from the bandage equal to a length of 40-50 cm. Do the same with gauze, focusing on a width of about 10 cm.
  3. Roll the resulting strip along, carefully tucking the edges inward. This will avoid the occurrence of inflammation through the fault of the threads remaining in the vagina.
  4. Roll gauze into a tight cylinder to make something resembling an industrial tampon. The result can be seen in the picture.
  5. Saturate the gauze cylinder with the medicinal composition and proceed according to the instructions of the gynecologist.

Material and tools for manufacturing

As a rule, such tampons are used in gynecology. They are introduced into the vagina, so at the time of manufacture must comply with the rules of sterility. Otherwise, the ingestion of additional bacteria will only aggravate the patient's condition. Moreover, the vaginal mucosa is very sensitive and through it opens the way to the internal genitals of a woman.

In addition to the basic materials from which the tampon will be made, it is necessary to prepare and additional accessories:

  1. Pharmacy gloves, sterile. When purchasing them at a pharmacy, ask for those that are used for gynecological examination.
  2. Scissors.
  3. Strong thread.
  4. Antiseptic fluid. Most often it is alcohol, but you can use another habitual means for you.

Wash your hands thoroughly with soap before starting work. Do not make several tampons at once, they do not need to be prepared for future use, otherwise they will not be sterile any more.

General instruction

The sequence of work is approximately as follows:

  1. Initially wash your hands well with soap.
  2. Wipe the scissors with a disinfectant solution.
  3. Take a sterile bandage and cut a strip measuring 15-20 cm.
  4. After that, tear off the required amount of cotton and roll it into a ball, the diameter of which is 2-3 cm.
  5. The bandage is folded into 2 parts, a cotton ball is placed between them.
  6. Концы бинта свяжите.
  7. Если вы применяете нить, то предварительно ее смочите в спирте и перевяжите бинт под ватным шариком.
  8. The drug must be impregnated with a tampon (all medicines should be prescribed by a doctor). After that, insert it into the vagina so that the tip of the bandage hangs down.
  9. If you use a tampon to treat a wound, then dip the ball in an antiseptic and lightly moisten the wound.

The ball of cotton should not be large, as it will be difficult to place in the vagina. And in too small a tampon the right amount of medication will not fit.

How to make a tampon of bandage or gauze?

Start of work is carried out according to the standard scheme: hand washing, if you do not use gloves, then also hand disinfection, treatment with an alcohol solution of tools.

If you are preparing a tampon with a bandage or gauze for a short period of use, then you do not have to use an exhaust thread. Cut a bandage 40-50 cm long. Roll it up so that the threads remain in the inside. This is done for safety reasons, so that no foreign objects are left in the vagina after the tampon is pulled out. If you use cheesecloth, everything is done in the same sequence.

The tampon is lubricated or moistened with the drug and inserted into the vagina. To make it easier to enter, use a regular pen, but pre-treat it with a disinfectant.

When can I use homemade tampons?

Homemade tampons are sometimes used during the delivery of urine for analysis, in the event that other hygienic devices were not at hand. This is necessary so that extra components do not get into the urine.

But mostly such homemade tampons have a different purpose:

  1. Treatment of such illnesses as cervicitis, colpitis, parametritis, adnexitis. It uses a special therapeutic mud, which is impregnated with a cotton ball, not a bandage. Under the influence of heating, the dirt begins to have a therapeutic effect, improving the blood supply to the organ and expanding the vessels.
  2. In order to combat inflammation or to recover in the postoperative period. Most often for these purposes aloe juice, propolis and other medicinal products, both popular and pharmaceutical, are used.
  3. In order to restore a healthy vaginal microflora. When thrush set of tampons with soda. For this, soda is taken in proportion 1 tsp. 1 cup of warm boiled water.

How to make a tampon from a bandage: a means of hygiene and treatment

In some gynecological diseases, sometimes there is a need to carry out local treatment. For this purpose, it is recommended to use special tampons.

The cost of finished products is high, so not every woman can afford to buy them in the necessary quantity for the course of therapy. You can make them from improvised tools, which will always be found in each first-aid kit.

For the manufacture of this option, you must prepare a strip of bandage length of 15-25 cm and make a cotton ball with a diameter of not more than three centimeters.

If the size of the cotton ball will be larger, the swab made to be inserted into the vagina will be much more difficult.

The resulting cotton ball should be tightly bound to exhaust thread and resemble the bag externally. Thanks to the filament, it is easy enough to remove it even if it stood inside throughout the whole night.

  2. Before inserting the tampon inward, it is necessary to wipe the external genitalia well, and then insert the moistened tampon.

It is permissible to keep the agent inside for up to 5 minutes and no more; this is due to the fact that soda is a rather aggressive agent, with prolonged contact with the vaginal mucosa able to cause its dryness and only aggravate the situation.

Carry out so therapy of cervicitis and colpitis, as well as parametritis. At the same time use a special type of dirt. It is applied not on the tampon itself, but on the cotton ball, which is wrapped with a sterile bandage on top. The therapeutic effect is achieved under the influence of body temperature. The main goal is to expand the blood vessels and improve blood circulation.

  1. From the bandage cut off a small strip, the length of which should not exceed 15-20 cm.
  2. Then they take cotton wool rolled into a ball, which is placed between the layers of a double-folded bandage.
  3. The ends of the gauze are joined together by holding together with a disinfected thread. The tip of the thread is left in order to be able to easily remove the tampon.
  4. Before direct use, the tampon is moistened with a medicinal product, which was prescribed by a gynecologist.

Depending on the disease, its nature, various types of tampons are used in gynecology for treatment.

  1. Mud tampons are used in gynecology for the treatment of chronic diseases, which may include: parametritis, adnexitis, cervicitis, coleitis. As you know, dirt simultaneously has a thermal and chemical effect on the body. To make such a tampon, apply therapeutic mud, which is impregnated with a cotton ball, located inside the self-made tampon. Dirt contributes to the expansion of blood vessels, which increases blood flow to the organ, thus improving the trophism of tissues, which leads to their rapid recovery.

How to make a gynecological swab from the bandage and cotton

Gynecological therapy in the vast majority of cases is based on an integrated approach. A key factor in the success of local treatment of women's diseases is to ensure quality access of existing components to the epicenter of the problem.

Another argument against industrial tampons is the possibility of a feeling of dryness in the vagina due to the high absorbent properties of the compressed material.

The product using the finished tampon instead of the frame

Some women complain that it is inconvenient for them to inject a homemade vaginal cylinder or a ball of cotton wool and a bandage. There may be several reasons for this:

  • insufficiently dense rolling of a cotton ball,
  • poor fixation of a cotton ball with a thread, due to which the head of the resulting product holds the shape poorly, and this prevents comfortable penetration inside the body,
  • excessive volume of homemade gauze cylinder.

What to do if the introduction of self-made means causes inconvenience? Life hacking will help to get out of the situation. To use it you will need ready hygienic tampons, which are sold in any pharmacy.

The main condition is that each product has an individual packaging (an example is the production of Obi or Kotex trademarks).

The action algorithm is as follows (see photo):

  1. Do not remove the protective mica! Simply rub the surface of the product with alcohol to destroy the bacteria.
  2. Cut a strip of about 20-25 cm from the bandage. If necessary, you can make a two-layer construction (absorption capacity will be higher).
  3. Bend the resulting strip in half and wrap the purchased product with it. Try to wrap the side sections of the bandage inside.
  4. Using a strong thread, fix the resulting structure and proceed to the treatment prescribed by the doctor.

Getting on the mucous membrane, a solution of honey very quickly heals ulcers, eliminates inflammation, fights viruses and fungi.

Soak tampons immediately before the procedure. Keep these drugs can not. In diluted form, honey quickly loses its unique properties.

The duration of the course of therapy and the recipes of the medical composition based on honey depend on the disease.

  • For endometriosis, it is recommended to introduce gauze balls moistened with a warm solution of water with honey (one to one). The swab is left overnight. In the morning, it is removed and make douching decoction of medicinal plants (celandine, calendula, chamomile). Honey normalizes metabolism in the uterus, does not allow the growth of pathological cells in the ovaries and fallopian tubes.
  • To combat candida, it is especially important that gauze swabs are sterile. The mucous membrane of the genital organs before the procedure must be cleaned from the secretions characteristic of this infection by furacilin or other antiseptics. The swab is moistened with a solution of water and honey (as with endometriosis) and left overnight. Patients noted a decrease in itching, swelling, restoration of microflora in the vagina after a course of treatment.
  • Tampons with honey for conception help women if the causes of infertility are not clear. Recipe: wrap one teaspoon of liquid honey into a piece of sterile gauze or bandage, leaving long ends to be removed. The first time to enter at 4 o'clock (if there is no burning sensation, in the future, leave for 8-10 hours).

Honey treatment helps relieve general inflammation, normalize the menstrual cycle and has a positive effect on the ovaries. The course lasts about 2 weeks and is interrupted for the period of ovulation.

  • For colpitis or vulvitis, swabs with honey and aloe are recommended, the recipe is as follows:
    • large leaves of adult plants (older than 3 years) are taken, washed with water and placed in a refrigerator (temperature 15-17 degrees) for 5-10 days,
    • leaves kept in the cold are cut, squeezed out of them juice,
    • juice and honey are mixed in a ratio of 1: 1 (the composition can be stored in the refrigerator for about a week),
    • tampons moistened with a mixture of honey with aloe, injected overnight.
    • The course is held for 10 days without breaks and passes.
  • From cervical erosion and cystitis, traditional medicine offers the following original recipes:
    • Tampons with onions and honey. Small onion cut in half, poured in the middle a little honey, baked in the oven. When the onion is baked with honey, it cools, it is wrapped in a sterile bandage or gauze and injected into the vagina overnight. Onion tampons are useful in the rehabilitation after surgery on the internal organs of the pelvis in women.
    • Garlic tampons or candles. Peel the head of garlic, squeeze the juice out of it, which is diluted 1:10 with boiled water. Using this compound, do douching every evening, and every other day, put a tampon soaked in garlic water into the vagina (day - 10 days). In addition, garlic in gynecology successfully treats candidiasis, cystitis and other fungal, bacterial and viral infections.
    • Candles with aloe. It is in the form of a suppository that the agar juice most effectively gets into the uterus. Make candles by mixing fresh juice from the leaves of the plant with melted glycerin or cocoa butter (1: 1). When the mass has cooled, balls or capsules are formed from it, and wrapped in parchment, they are frozen. Apply suppositories with aloe in gynecology in common for such drugs scheme.
    • Douching with soda during erosion. Gynecologists advise to do it before each introduction of a tampon with medical impregnation (any). A weak alkaline solution cleanses and disinfects the mucous membrane.
    • Chamomile douching for cervical erosion. This procedure is advisable to do after removing the tampon. Chamomile decoction has a softening effect on internal tissues and boosts immunity.
    • Candles, ointments, spirit tinctures of propolis. This unique natural substance contains tree gum, essential oils and wax mixed with tannins and plant pollen. Propolis in gynecology (as well as honey) fights against inflammation, restores the microflora, has an analgesic effect. There is information about the suspension of the growth of cancerous tumors under the action of propolis.

The use of tampons for the successful treatment of cervical erosion, fibroids, infertility, and obstruction of the fallopian tubes is useful to combine with intramuscular injections of vitamin and immunity-enhancing drugs. The most common in gynecology are aloe injections.

It is not recommended to put tampons with honey and other substances during pregnancy, as well as during lactation.

Independent production of tampons

Since there is a jar of honey in any home, it will be easier to use home-made tampons. Their production will require a little patience and a dressing: a gauze napkin, turunda (spiral) or a cotton ball. The tampon for insertion into the vagina must be sterile.

Therefore, only special cotton wool and gauze are taken for work, scissors are thoroughly washed with laundry soap, boiled and rubbed with alcohol. Before you make a tampon, you can wear surgical gloves on your hands.

Ready tampons for treatment are stored in a clean container (it is convenient to take a glass jar and calcine it in the oven or microwave).

The procedure is as follows:

  • to separate the required amount of cotton from the package, twist a spiral out of it that resembles a turund for cleaning the ears,
  • form a cotton ball or oblong torpedo,
  • tie a long thread (it will also need to be sterilized or moistened with alcohol),
  • wrap a torpedo (or a ball) with a gauze rectangle,
  • the ends of the tissue are cut, then they are tied (a tampon is removed for these tails).

To get a comfortable tampon for insertion into the vagina with your own hands, it is very important to choose the right amount of filling. Vata is a material that, when absorbed by a liquid, increases dramatically in volume. It should not be too much. Otherwise there will be discomfort after insertion into the vagina. But small cotton balls work poorly. They can slip out ahead of time.

You can make a very simple tampon with a bandage. Sterile strip with a length of 20 cm roll into a tight cylinder and secure with a thread on top.

Diseases of the female reproductive organs are unpredictable. Their treatment requires careful adherence to the doctor’s prescriptions. The use of tampons with aloe and honey did not harm the health of any patient (except in cases of allergy to bee products).

Often, gynecologists themselves recommend such means of "traditional medicine." According to many women, the combination of honey therapy with the main medical course of treatment speeds up the healing process, relieves swelling, reduces itching and burning.

How to use tampons for women and girls

Hygienic tampons for more than a dozen years successfully compete with sanitary pads. And it is not surprising, because tampons have one bright advantage - their invisibility. Using hygienic tampons during menstruation, you can wear tight-fitting clothing of any color.

You can not hesitate to flaunt on the beach in a bikini and even swim. But tampons have their drawbacks - this is that their irregular changes can lead to an infectious process, as well as some difficulties with the introduction that many women experience.

In this article we will look at the main issues that concern how to use tampons.

How to insert a tampon

To begin with, changing a tampon, if possible, is needed only in a clean place and with clean hands. Therefore, a public toilet is unlikely to be the best choice.
We think about where to insert a tampon is not necessary, but how to do it correctly? First of all, you need to wash your hands with soap or, as a last resort, carefully wipe them with a damp cloth.

Next, open the package and get a tampon. In what position to insert a tampon - not fundamentally, do as you like. For easier insertion, try to completely relax, with your fingers slightly spreading the small labia slightly. Then at what depth to insert a tampon - only you decide. The main thing that you were comfortable.

With the correct introduction of a tampon into the vagina is absolutely not felt.

But not everyone is so easy to use this hygiene product. Some women wonder why it is painful to insert a tampon and how to avoid this pain. First, the reason may be gynecological in nature.

If, for example, a woman has pelvic organ prolapse, vaginal wall prolapse, then any manipulation of the vagina will be painful: sexual intercourse, tampon use, and gynecological examinations. Secondly, the problem may lie in the fear that binds a woman.

Due to spasm of the intimate muscles, the introduction of a tampon can be problematic. In such cases, it is possible and necessary to use a small amount of a water-based lubricant, or a special medical gel, which is prescribed for vaginal dryness - metrogyl gel, for example.

It does not cause allergic reactions. It is enough to lightly lubricate their labia before introducing the tampon.

Can tampons be used by girls

Yes, virgin tampons can be used, but not all. The hymen has a small opening through which vaginal discharge and menstrual blood flow. In addition, the hymen is quite stretchable. And if you use the tampon carefully, it will not break.

The main thing is to buy only hygienic tampons marked “mini”. Yes, they will require more frequent changes, but virgins use them much more comfortable. Secondly, the tampon must be with the applicator, for which you subsequently pull it out. Do not worry, modern tampons have very strong applicators that do not tear.

If after the introduction of the tampon pain appeared - most likely, it is not deeply injected. Girls need to use tampons, following the same rules that are written for adult women.

If the tampon is stuck

For many girls and women, this causes a real panic. Unfortunately, not everyone is familiar with their own anatomy. Many believe that the object inserted into the vagina can easily get into the uterus from there, or even further into the fallopian tubes.

This is not true. The uterus is separated from the vagina by her cervix, which is in the closed state outside the labor. Yes, during menstruation and in women who have given birth, it can be ajar a few millimeters. But this is clearly not enough for a tampon.

What to do if a tampon is stuck? Try to pull it out! Spread your legs slightly, put one foot on the dais and pull the applicator.

If the tampon does not have an applicator, then with one's fingers with one hand, spread the labia lips apart, and with the other hand try to reach the tampon. You can slightly tighter. Difficulties should not arise.

In extreme cases, without hesitation you can always contact a gynecologist. But just do not allow the tampon to be in the vagina for more than a few hours!

How to make a tampon from a bandage with your own hands

Sometimes there are situations when neither sanitary pads nor a tampon is at hand. What can replace them? In this case, the tampon can be made from an inexpensive sterile bandage. Moreover, depending on the physiological parameters, not one product can be obtained from a single bandage, but immediately 6. So, we solve the problem by manufacturing. Instructions from the photo.

We cut a 7 meter long bandage (gauze can be) for 5-6 parts in length. For the test, cut one bandage and try to use the tampons that are obtained. On the second bandage can adjust the length of the segments and end products.

Stage 2 Fold the lengths of the bandage, first in length, and in the final stage in width. To remember the order of addition, do not finish the job. Place the blanks somewhere or place them closer for ease of use.

Step 3: Roll up one of the blanks and try to use it.

By virtue of physiology, every woman will have enough or not enough of a single bandage, but compared to the cost of ready-made tampons, this waste is more than justified. Especially when the tampon is needed in the singular, and not for use during menstruation, but for collecting urine for analysis, for example, when it is very important that vaginal discharge does not get into the container.

Homemade hygienic cotton wool and gauze tampons can also be used for medicinal purposes, if soaked with a medicine. About how to use tampons in such cases, you need to learn from the gynecologist.

After birth, hemorrhoids worsened. Nodes did not fall out, but there is still bleeding. The doctor said that there is inflammation in the rectum, therefore, in order to get rid of it faster, he began treatment of hemorrhoids with tampons. I used linseed oil and regular hygienic tampons.

I just soaked the tampons with oil and put it at bedtime for several days. Then it became much better, itching, burning and discomfort inside. After reducing the inflammation, the treatment process went faster. After about three weeks, all symptoms disappeared completely.
