When Is The Right Time To Use A Tampon?

When your first period arrives you'll most likely want to use pads. Then, as you get older your thoughts may turn to tampons; especially in the summer months when your more active, in the pool or want to wear the latest Summer fashions. We know that some girls are quite happy to use tampons for their very first period and never feel the need to use a pad. But for most, the perfect time to switch to tampons is when you are more familiar with your monthly cycle and period flow.


  • They're perfect if you love being active and going swimming.
  • They’re so small you can hold one in your hand or put it in your pocket when you need to visit the loo.
  • Because tampons are worn inside your body you are less likely to experience odour.
  • No matter how heavy your period flow is, there’s a tampon that'll be right for you.


Tampons are made from a cotton like material that is compressed into a small cylinder shape that is worn inside your vagina to absorb menstrual fluid. There are two different types of tampon, known as applicator and non-applicator types. This gives you a choice about how you insert them.

We're all different and that's true about your period too, and if you feel ready to move on from the our teens pad range, you may find our core range of tampons are a good choice.

Lil-lets tampons come in six absorbencies to suit even the heaviest of flows and we even have a reusable applicator if you prefer this format.
