Tampons, Menstruation

Definition : Tampons designed to be worn by women during their menstrual periods by being inserted into the vagina to absorb menstrual fluids. Menstruation tampons are made of absorbent material (typically cotton, rayon, or a mixture of the two) pressed together to form a cylinder-like shape, usually between 1.5 to 3 inches in length (38 mm to 76 mm). Some tampons come with aids to facilitate insertion; these aids are typically made of plastic or cardboard and are either tubes surrounding the tampon, or guide sticks. Tampons usually have cotton strings attached to the bottom to help with withdrawal of the tampon after use. They are intended to be used once and disposed after use. They are made with different absorbancies to accommodate light, moderate, or heavy menstrual flow.
