RELATED FAQ

Q: How long can I wear a tampon?

A: When using tampons, it's important to choose the lowest absorbency necessary for your menstrual flow. And because the amount of flow varies from day to day, it's likely that you will need to use different absorbencies on different days of your period. Selecting the right absorbency comes with experience, but as a guide, if a tampon absorbs as much as it can and has to be changed before 4 hours, then you may want to try a higher absorbency. On the other hand, if you remove a tampon and after 4-8 hours white fiber is still showing, you should choose a lower absorbency.

Worst redesign ever!

I've been using Tampax Compak for years, but this new Tampax Pocket Pearl applicator is the absolute worst. It just doesn't stay "clicked" and the tampon is never inserted properly. As long as the applicator is the same, I will no longer be buying your product; I will be shopping for another pocket brand with an effective and sensible applicator. I never thought that I would ever write a review on a tampon, but here we are.

No, I do not recommend this product.

This product is not good.

Tampax pearl compak regular was the best tampons and the only ones I have used. Now since they are no longer made and replaced by this other product, I wil have to look at another brand of tampons. Tampax is not good like it was. I don't understand why they changed it. I do not give it any stars.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Horrible redesign

What were you thinking Tampax? This redesign is horrible - the applicator is poorly redesigned, using more plastic than the previous version. The tampon itself doesn't stay in place and leaks [never had that problem before with the original Tampax Compak, or any of the other versions], and the woven string just adds to the leaking. I was a faithful customer before this redesign, now i'll be looking for something else. Change back to the original design it seems everyone liked and maybe you'll get your customers back.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Worst product ever.

I have no clue why they changed the design on the pearl compact. I would give it no stars. This one doesn't work at all. It breaks, it hurts, it slips, it does anything except what it's supposed to. We have had feminine products since the beginning of time- how is it possible a company has found a way to make them significantly worse instead of better?? Dissappointed I wasted my money on this garbage product.

No, I do not recommend this product.

These tampons are a nightmare. Zero Stars.

This product is TERRIBLE. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. The applicators don't effectively click into place, so you'll waste a good 5 minutes and multiple tampons trying to just get a tampon changed. Once they're in they are painful and they leak. At one point, I got so tired of manually pushing the tampons in (definitely not cool) that I gave up and resorted to the makeshift folded up toilet paper maxi pad method even though I still had tampons in my purse. These are terrible. For a tampon company, this is embarrassment. I'm terrified that no testing or quality control seems to have been conducted. With the use of one of these tampons, any rational minded woman with a vagina knows that these are no good. Stay away.

No, I do not recommend this product.

I will not buy tampax until they bring back the old ones! These things are a waste of money! I have always bought tampax and have never had issues with the old compacks. Loved them no leaking and comfortable and used with no issues. I had to use the "new and improved" ones today and I'm not happy AT ALL! I will be looking at other brands tomorrow!

No, I do not recommend this product.
