    Warnings

    Tampons are associated with Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS).  TSS is a rare but serious disease that may cause death.  Read and save the leaflet inside the package.  Use for 8 hours maximum.  The risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) increases with higher absorbency.  In order to reduce your risk of TSS, you should use the lowest absorbency that meets your needs.

    Convenient.

    The smaller size is convenient for a purse or pocket, but the packaging per item is rather noisy, killing the discreet aspect.

    the original lite was pretty good (the one in the cardboard). I thought the pearl would be better. WRONG! Don't be trick to think this lite must be very comfortable. It is very painful when wearing and removal. Don't tell me I didn't use it right cuz i've been using tampons for years. DON'T recommend this...I'm going back to use Playtex Sport

      Comments about Tampax Compak Tampons Plastic Applicator, Unscented, Lite, 20 ea, 1 pack:

      I don't understand the "difficult to use" comments. it's a tampon, not an electrical device! Also disagree with it being uncomfortable; not so in my opinion. I like the compact Pearls because they take up less storage space and the lites are, of course, for lite days.

      Makes me glad that I am almost to the end of needing this product. How can the company go from a completely recyclable product to plastic waste? What I am supposed to do with that when camping? Save them in a bag and carry them around with me the whole trip? YUK!
      Cardboard goes in the latrine and stays there.

          I prefer to use the cardboard applicator lites, but they are impossible to find. I substituted with these and were horrified to find they are nearly twice the length of the regular lites. The additional length makes them uncomfortable!

                I don't know why people are saying they are uncomfortable, besides the fact that everybody is shaped differently. I consider myself to have a generally light overall period. I've never had a child pass through and I'd consider it pretty small down there. I've also had problems in the past trying to get tampons in. I really like the lite pearl compax. At least try them because, like I said, everyone is different.

                I found this to be a great product for my teen girls who have had their period for about a year. They want to be able to go swimming and this made it able for them to do so, discreetly.
