Today, every modern woman during the menstruation uses hygienic tampons. Some of the fair sex use them daily, and some - in extreme cases, as they consider this device harmful to health. Therefore, it is important to know how to properly use tampons, without harm to women's health.

When did tampons appear?

In modern interpretation, a gynecological swab is an artificially created cylindrical object made of absorbent material. Its functional purpose is to hold the menstrual blood directly into the vagina.

For the first time, mentions of the use of hygienic tampons by women during menstruation appeared in the distant past. Scientists have proven that the 15th century BC. residents of Rome used self-formed rollers of absorbent flax fiber with a rope. In Babylon, tampons were made from papyrus or cane, and in Japan - from the finest rice paper.

Tampons, in the form of modern feminine hygiene products appeared in the 30s of the 20th century. The famous American surgeon Earl Haas created and patented his invention called "Tamrah". Such tampons had, in addition to a moisture-absorbing cylinder, two tube applicators, facilitating their easy introduction into the body.

Later, Gertrude Tendrich patents were purchased on this trademark. She first organized the production and sale of this product. In addition, Tendrich, with the help of nurses, conducted educational lectures and advertising campaigns about the benefits and advantages of their products.

In the early 40s of the 20th century, the German gynecologist Judit Esser-Mittagom developed tampons without an applicator. Having studied the thoroughly female anatomy, they created universal forms of tampons suitable for any organism. In the 70s, the company is about. was sold to johnson & johnson.

In the modern market tampons are provided by many trademarks. The most popular women are o.b, Tampax, Kotex, Ola, Libresse.

Is there any harm from tampons

During the entire existence of such feminine hygiene products, many fears have arisen about their harmful effects on the body. Despite the fact that most of them are refuted myths, a certain harm from their use still exists.

If dioxin is the main raw material, then the probability of developing oncological pathologies affecting the organs of the urogenital system increases significantly. It is also possible the appearance of endometriosis in the uterine cavity and the deterioration of the reproduction of the female body.

Despite the fact that viscose is a natural material, the use of tampons based on it causes similar harm to the body, as well as products made of dioxin. This is due to the fact that after they are removed from the vagina, tampon fibers impregnated with dioxin remain on its walls.

The use of hygienic cotton products is also harmful. This is explained by the presence in their composition of GMOs resistant to antibiotics. On the one hand, there is nothing terrible about this, but the presence of drug resistance in the body neutralizes the effectiveness of antibiotic therapy in the body.

Doctors have proven the minimal likelihood of developing toxic shock syndrome only when tampons are used improperly. Especially increases the risk in the presence of inflammatory processes in the organs of the genitourinary system.

It is worth noting that hygienic tampons have a number of contraindications to their use. Accordingly, the neglect of them can cause significant harm to the health of the female body.

It is also important to timely replace tampons and not exceed the permissible time of their use. Prolonged location of the product in the vagina contributes to the development of dryness in it.

Systematic gynecological examinations and the selection of tampons with a profiling doctor minimize, and in some cases eliminate their negative effects on the body.

The presence of products of class Mini (Lites) makes it possible to use tampons during adolescence without harm to health. This is very important for the preservation of the hymen.

It is also worth noting that in addition to hygienic tampons there are other types of products, the use of which has a positive effect on the woman's body. Among them it is worth highlighting:

  • Therapeutic. These are special pharmacological or home-made products, which include medicinal substances or herbal medicines. Also very popular with women are tampons that serve as a protective barrier when visiting spa complexes and a swimming pool.

Do not forget that for certain days of the menstrual cycle, women should use tampons with a different measure of absorption. If the box shows four or five drops, then such means are used in the first days of menstruation, when the discharge is most intense. Three drops on the package indicate that tampons will be acceptable in the middle days of the cycle, with a little discharge. But only two drops indicate that these items of hygiene fit with a little bleeding in recent days. Any girl and woman, whose everything is normal with the menstrual cycle, knows which period the menstruation takes place more abundantly, in which less, and she can already choose a certain set of hygiene products from tampons with varying degrees of absorption.

Over time, if you constantly use tampons, you can adapt as much as possible to their use.

One of the main advantages and advantages is that during critical days, there is no contact of the released blood with air, this is prevented by a tampon. That is why there is no smell of discharge.

How to use tampons, and whether all

Before a woman decides to use tampons, it is necessary to become more familiar with what they are. This can help the instruction, which can always be found in the package, where there is a detailed description of the use and use of this product. Given that tampons are practical and easy to use, there is a certain number of recommendations and requirements for their proper use. In the first place - is the maintenance of cleanliness and hygiene during the hygienic procedure. They are advised to use in the first days of menstruation, alternate from funds from less absorbed to more absorbed. It is necessary to change this subject of hygiene as needed, to prevent leakages, otherwise there is a risk of the development of pathogenic bacteria in the vagina.

For all its practicality and convenience, there are cases where women can not use these tools. This is especially true for those women who are prone to inflammatory diseases of the genital organs. If different vaginal ointments and suppositories are prescribed for the treatment of the woman, tampons due to the fact that they are good at absorbing the liquid will absorb all the medicines in themselves, while the whole point of treatment will be lost. If a lady has a tendency to allergic reactions, you will need to give up tampons that have different odors, aromas and can be dangerous to health. Do not recommend also using tampons virgins, due to the fact that the virgin membrane has a certain structure, enter this product may be impossible. If, after repeated applications, the woman feels discomfort in the vagina, dryness, this type of hygiene should be abandoned in order to avoid the appearance of wounds.

Is there any harm to health from tampons

With all its positive qualities, convenience, proven and harm to tampons. These women's funds in the composition have certain harmful chemicals and components that in one way or another can affect the health of girls and women.

Dioxin. Women's cotton tampons in their appearance are very white due to the content of such an element as dioxin. This component is used in the bleaching process, and it is considered that it is negligible for hygiene products and does not cause health concerns. However, this material is very carcinogenic, and this can cause various toxic reactions when ingested by women. First of all, it can affect the immune and reproductive systems. In medical practice, it is believed that the long-term presence of this substance in the female body, which is present in the composition of the swab, can lead to the development of such diseases as endometriosis. And with a large accumulation of it in the tissues of the body, it can also pose a direct threat to health.

Viscose. This element is made from wood and perfectly absorbs blood. In the production of viscose, there is a risk that a large amount of harmful chemical elements may get into the fabric from which this hygienic product will be made later. Since viscose is considered to be a sufficiently strong absorbent, after a woman gets a tampon, viscose fibers will still remain inside, which will allow dioxin to have a negative effect in the female body.

Cotton tampons are also unsafe. The benefit of them is also not proven, it is believed that genetically modified cotton is used for their manufacture. And he has a certain resistance to many antibiotics, which complicates and complicates the treatment of certain diseases of the genital organs. Also, after the removal of this product of hygiene from the body, there is a risk that fibers may remain in the vagina, which in the future may be the reason that women will have various wounds and ulcers in the vagina.

Today, a large number of girls and women use these tools, and therefore to decide whether it is harmful to use tampons should be strictly individual, only after consulting a specialist.

Toxic shock syndrome and how to avoid it

No matter how much you talk about the convenience, versatility, practicality of these hygiene products, the issue of tampons, pros and cons is still open. The main disadvantage of this product is considered to be the development of such a disease as toxic shock syndrome. This ailment was talked about back in the eighties of the last century, and tampons directly served as its cause. The product itself is not harmful and does not contain danger in the form of harmful bacteria, but it directly contributes to their very rapid reproduction in the female body.

The result of all this can be a shock from the use of tampons. This is especially susceptible to women who have various inflammatory diseases. This syndrome may occur due to the development of bacteria such as pyogenic streptococcus, Staphylococcus aureus in the body. Even healthy females in the body have a small amount of these bacteria and microorganisms, but under certain conditions in patients, they multiply quite intensively.

The first signs that the toxins that produce these bacteria are in the blood may be certain ailments. This may include dizziness, a significant increase in body temperature, vomiting, convulsions. If a woman feels such ailments in the period of menstruation with the use of hygienic tampons, you should immediately remove this tool and consult a doctor. In some special cases, you should immediately call an ambulance.

A woman is filled to the required volume of lost blood, and in the future they can prescribe the necessary antibiotic to cure those infections that can cause toxic shock. Such troubles can be avoided if tampons are used only on the recommendation of a physician, after examining the body for infections, fungi, following basic hygiene rules, changing products in time, preventing leakage.

Recommendations for women and girls

Every girl and woman should think thoroughly - whether to use tampons, whether they will benefit. These funds are considered convenient, practical, with them you can swim, play sports, wear tight clothes, go on long trips. But, unfortunately, there is a negative side, which proves that this product can be harmful. With long-term use of the tampon, vaginal discharge in women is delayed by several hours, and in the presence of pathogenic bacteria can adversely affect the health of women.

I have been using tampons for over 35 years (brought from Europe, when in Russia it wasn’t). I have no listed problems. Gaskets do not recognize

I also do not use gaskets because it does not like this swamp between my legs) And with tampons you forget that you have a cd. Always dry and clean

2, +1000, only tampons. Any thinnest and breathable pads still give you the feeling of a “diaper” - nooo, this is not for me. I think that if it is normal to use tampons, everything will be ok, but if there is only one tampon for the whole day, there is nothing that you can catch.

2, +1000, only tampons. Any thinnest and breathable pads still give you the feeling of a “diaper” - nooo, this is not for me. считаю что если тампонами нормально пользоваться то все будет ок, ну а если на весь день один тампон - там чего только не "подхватишь".

Тампоны, как и прокладки, надо менять каждые три-четыре часа. Тогда никаких проблем не будет. На ночь лучше прокладкой пользоваться, т.к. спим мы больше 4 часов.

when I had fibroids, the gynecologist said to use only pads. but whether tampons could lead to the appearance of fibroids - it seems to me, no. with the use of tampons, you just need to be very careful, be sure to change in time, otherwise all this ***** inside begins to produce bacteria, and this is certainly not useful. By the opinion of the gynecologist by the way I trust 100%, it is very cool.

I agree with tampons convenient and comfortable. only heard that they interfere with the outflow of blood and lead to its delay

for me, if I use tampons, it seems less abundant, but maybe it seems.

The well-known fact that it is necessary to alternate between the tampon and the gasket. because not only clean blood is released, but also pieces of the endometrium

Well, first, tampons need to be checked for microorganisms. Yes Yes. This is done in special laboratories. The same with gaskets. They have components that lead to gardellosis.

Gardnerella is caused only by gardnerella, and if there are none, then there is no place to take it from. But tampons, like pads and daily, provoke the development of various vaginosis, since we all have our own flora in the vagina and is not always correct. And it is better, of course, that the man was clean and did not carry anything.

In addition, the water should be clean, comfortable temperature.

Do not use tampons with heavy bleeding. Caution should be applied to girls who have a menstrual cycle only getting better. Although some doctors recommend using this hygiene product even if you have a hymen.

Negative points of use

Opinion experts about the use of tampons are divided. Women also apply to these hygiene products with care. Despite the assertion that using them is absolutely safe.

A big rush arose several years ago in the United States, when women began to die of toxic shock syndrome. Tied it with a 10-year period of the use of new hygiene products. Officially, the version was not confirmed, but not refuted.

But after that, the producers changed the composition of the intimate means somewhat.

As it became known, a golden bacterium that is constantly in the body - on the skin, nasal mucosa, mouth, throat causes toxic shock. But its number increases under certain conditions.

Incorrect use of tampons creates such conditions. The growth of bacteria is rapid, causes strong toxicosis throughout the body. In case of untimely assistance, a woman may die.

Therefore, some doctors emphasize that it is possible to keep the drug inside for no more than 2 hours, use gaskets at night, and it is better for girls to do without these hygiene products. For the rest, the decision for every woman.

Is it possible to pool with a tampon?

  • Tampons, in principle, are very often used by athletes during training and performances in the water. However, gynecologists warn that it is desirable to swim not earlier than the third day of menstruation and in waters with clear water.
  • This is, firstly, due to the fact that in the first couple of days of menstruation the discharge is more intense and it is difficult for tampons soaked in water to cope with so much liquid.
  • Secondly, the tampon protects the blood from escaping, but it does not give any guarantee regarding the penetration of the infection inside. The fact is that during critical days, the uterus seems to open up a little and any bacterium can easily penetrate its cavity. This can cause a lot of diseases. The tampon does not filter dirty water, and therefore the risk of infection in such a state of women is very high
  • Swimming pools often use a variety of filters and water purifiers. However, such chemistry is not only not able to guarantee one hundred percent cleanliness around the clock, but it itself can cause irreparable harm to the female body.

Swimming in the pool with a tampon

  • Swims in freshwaters also do not bode well. This is especially true of stagnant water. Bacteria in it feel like a fish in water
  • There is one more question: “Is it possible to swim with a tampon in the sea?”. Salty sea water is considered safer, since its composition is detrimental for most types of infections. Therefore, in the sea you can swim with a tampon, but not for long. Anyway, swimming in any water with a swab should last no more than twenty minutes
  • Before you go into the water, you must enter a new tampon. After the specified period, it must be removed and put a new one. Per day to take water treatments during the month with a tampon preferably no more than twice
  • It is strictly forbidden to swim on critical days without a tampon! It's like going for a bear with your bare hands.
  • Summing up, we can say that tampons are a rather convenient thing, but they should be used correctly and only in exceptional cases. Dangers for the hymen they do not represent

All about tampons and how to use them

Previously, the so-called “critical days” gave women a lot of inconvenience. But later thanks to the invention of gaskets and tampons, they have become more comfortable. The use of gaskets practically does not cause complaints and questions, but opinions about tampons are different. Until now, there are ongoing discussions and debates among gynecologists on this topic.

The history of tampons

The tampons called Tampax (from the English. Tampon & pack - tampon and packaging) that appeared in the 30s of the last century were an invention of the American doctor Earl Haas. In the 1980s, having taken on a modern look, they caused a scandal caused by the death from toxic shock of several women who used synthetic fiber tampons.

As a result of research, it turned out that the use of tampons creates conditions for enhanced reproduction of bacteria and excretion of toxins. Rehabilitation occurred only when cotton and viscose were used to make them; now the probability of a toxic shock has been reduced.

Modern tampons have the appearance of small dense and oblong cylinders, pressed from the softest absorbent material - specially processed and bleached natural cotton and viscose fibers, which are inserted into the vagina to absorb menstrual flow. The industry produces tampons with and without an applicator.

For women with minor secretions, Lites tampons are available, with moderate - Regular, with moderate and abundant - Super and with very abundant - Super plus.
