O.B. Tampon Normal Instructions
Step 1: Open the tampon
- Please, wash your hands.
- Then take a look at your tampon. Is it totally sealed? Good. (If not, don’t use it. Get another one.)
- Unwrap the tampon. Once you’ve done that, remove both ends of the wrapper.
- Next you’re going to find the string on one end of the tampon. Grab the string and pull it from left to right and top to bottom.
Step 2: Prepare the tampon
- Now, please place your index finger on the bottom of the tampon. It will help keep your finger clean and protected as you insert the tampon.
- Now with your thumb and middle finger get a firm hold on the tampon.
- Find a comfortable position that lets you relax and still reach your vagina.
- Next stand sit on the toilet or stand while slightly squatting to insert a tampon or stand with one leg up (rest your foot on the toilet or bathtub).
Step 3: Insert the tampon
- Take a deep breath to relax.
- With your free hand, gently hold open the skin around the vaginal opening.
- Now take the tampon, and with the full length of your index finger, ease it into your vagina, aiming toward your lower back.
- When the tampon is in the right place, you won’t feel it. If you do, push it a little further in.
- Leave the string hanging outside of your body.
- Wash your hands, and you’re done! It’s that simple.
❣️ Remember to change your tampon every 2-4 hours❣️
When it’s time to remove your tampon, here are a few more pointers.
- First wash your hands.
- Then take a deep breath to relax
- Gently but firmly tug at the string, and voilà! It’s out.
- We know it’s tempting, but please do not flush your tampon. Properly dispose of your tampon in the trash.
- Remember to wash your hands, and give yourself a high five.

Can I get TSS from using a tampon or a pad?
Tampons are associated with Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS), but can happen while using pads as well.
Toxic shock syndrome is a rare, life-threatening complication of certain types of bacterial infections. Often toxic shock syndrome results from toxins produced by Staphylococcus aureus (staph) bacteria, but the condition may also be caused by toxins produced by group A streptococcus (strep) bacteria.
Toxic shock syndrome can affect anyone, including men, children and postmenopausal women.
There is risk of TSS to all women using tampons during their menstrual period. There are scientific studies that recognize an association between TSS and tampon use, but the exact connection remains unclear.
The reported risks are higher to women under 30 years of age and teenage girls. The incidence of TSS is estimated to be between 1 and 17 cases of TSS per 100,000 menstruating women and girls per year.
WARNING SIGNS OF TSS ARE, FOR EXAMPLE, SUDDEN FEVER (USUALLY 102° F/38.8 C OR MORE), VOMITING, DIARRHEA, FAINTING OR NEAR FAINTING WHEN STANDING UP, DIZZINESS, OR A RASH THAT LOOKS LIKE A SUNBURN.
IF THESE SIGNS OR OTHER SIGNS OF TSS APPEAR, YOU SHOULD REMOVE THE TAMPON AT ONCE, DISCONTINUE USE, AND SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY.
