Tampons are great for the days you wish to stay physically active while on your period. That is why millions of women rely on them every month. However, many do feel somewhat concerned about inserting so many tampons into their bodies month after month. That is because conventional tampons have chemicals that might cause harm to women after prolonged usage.
Fear of exposure to hazardous chemicals has caused many to go back to using maxi pads. Unfortunately, it can be really hard to go back to uncomfortable sanitary pads after enjoying the convenience of tampons for so long. Luckily, it is possible to enjoy all of the advantages that come with using a tampon without becoming exposed to the toxic chemicals. Natural tampons made of sponge can allow women to enjoy the best of both worlds.
Sponge tampons work in very much the same way as conventional tampons—except they do not come with a string or an applicator. So it can take some time for you to get used to the insertion and removal process. To aid the insertion process, you can invest in an applicator that is reusable. Then to make the removal process easier, you can sew or tie a string of clean dental floss to the sponge.
Lots of women have had no problems with using the sponge tampons. However, for some it is just plain uncomfortable to try to get the sponge tampon in and out of the body. To find out whether or not you can tolerate a sponge tampon, you would have to just pop one in and see for yourself.
