How to Use: 1. Wash your hands first. Take off the tampon's plastic wrap and throw it away, but don't flush it! 2. Check the applicator to make sure the string is firmly attached by giving it a little tug. Push gently on the plunger and make sure the tampon is positioned snugly against applicator petals. 3. To put in the tampon, find a comfortable position either sitting (with your knees apart) or standing with one foot elevated. 4. Put the applicator tip into the opening of yourvagina and gently glide it toward your lower back. 5. Keep easing the applicator in until you've inserted as Far as the ring of the outer insertion tube. Continue holding the applicator, and then push the inner tube into the outer tube. 6. When the rings of the applicator are together, the tampon is in correctly. Gently remove both tubes, making sure the string is outside of your body. Dispose in a trash receptacle. Do not flush tampon, applicator, or wrapper. 7. To remove the tampon, relax and pull on the string at the same angle as the tampon was inserted. Change your tampon every 4 to 8 hours, including overnight. Remove each tampon before putting in a new one. Remember to remove the last tampon at the end of your period. 8. IF you have trouble getting the tampon out, see your doctor or clinic for help. Important: Dispose in a trash receptacle. Do not flush tampon, applicator, or wrapper.
