What are the different tampon sizes available?

Tampon sizes typically range from light to regular, super, and super plus, with each size offering different levels of absorbency.

How do I choose the right tampon size for my flow?

To select the right tampon size, consider the amount of menstrual flow you typically have. Lighter flow may require a smaller size, while heavier flow may need a larger size with higher absorbency.

Can I use a larger tampon size even if I have a lighter flow?

It is generally recommended to use the smallest tampon size that can effectively manage your flow. Using a larger size when unnecessary may lead to discomfort or difficulty in insertion/removal.

What if I'm unsure about the appropriate tampon size for me?

If you're uncertain about the tampon size, it is often helpful to start with a smaller size and gradually move up if needed, tailoring it to your specific flow patterns and personal comfort.

Are tampon sizes universal across different brands?

Tampon sizes may vary slightly between brands in terms of dimensions and absorbency. It is essential to read the instructions and guidelines provided by the specific tampon brand to understand their size recommendations accurately.
