Why it is important to choose the right tampon absorbency?
In order to reduce the risks of menstrual toxic shock syndrome (mTSS) use tampons with the lowest absorbency necessary to meet your needs and change your tampon regularly every 3-6 hours. You can also alternate between Gentle Day® highly absorbent sanitary pads and tampons at least once a day. mTSS can arise when we leave a tampon in for too long. The symptoms that indicate a possible mTSS infection include: sudden, high fever (39ºC/102ºF or higher), dizziness, vomiting, fainting, muscle aches and skin irritations similar to sunburn. Not all symptoms may necessarily be present. It can advance rapidly from flu-like symptoms to a serious illness with fatal consequences. If you have one or more of these symptoms, remove the tampon immediately and see your doctor.
What are the absorption capacities?
Tampon absorbency is noted on the packages by the number of drops. There are 3 levels of absorbency: 2 drops (absorbs 6-9 g) Regular: for days with moderate flow (yellow on the packaging) 3 drops (absorbs 9-12 g) Super: for days with heavy flow (green on the packaging) 4 drops (absorbs 12-15 g) Super Plus: for days with extremely heavy flow (blue on the packaging).
