Like most women, I too was always skeptical about using tampons. My biggest fear being, are they really safe? And how will they react with my body? I came to know about tampons by watching the tampon talkies video by Floh. I instantly thought of giving it a try. Before inserting it I obviously read the manual thoroughly and it was super easy to insert. I got it right in one shot. Initially, I felt a little different but as the days of my periods progressed, I completely forgot about it. Being a yoga instructor, performing yoga on my periods have always been dreadful as there is a constant fear of staining but with tampons, I could perform any asana I wished to. Aaand that’s the best part about using tampons for me!
I bought my first tampon when I was around 17. I wanted to go for a pool party but I was on my period. Was slightly hesitant because I’d never worn one before, and the whole process sounded quite uncomfortable. But I know how to wear it now, and once you insert it properly, you don’t even notice it. It’s almost as good as not being on your period. There’s no weird uncomfortable feeling that comes with putting on a pad. It increased my mobility because I could go swimming, and work out without being in discomfort.
I am utterly moved by how FLOH is starting a conversation about tampons in India as a healthy alternative to sanitary pads. I used to get constant rashes from using pads which compelled me to try organic and expensive ones but they were extremely uncomfortable to use. I tried to switch to tampons an year ago but the lack of variety in India resulted in me trying to hoard tampons for longer periods or order them from outside the country which would turn out to be quite expensive. In this regard, the subscription plans for FLOH tampons are amazing and affordable. The product is of great quality and stupendously easy to use. I love everything about it. Thank you so much.
