looking for on
Tampon packs carry lots of useful info on them.
In fact there are four different ways to identify the right ones for you.
Absorbency – the amount of fluid a tampon can hold.
Droplet – is an image of a drop to signify how absorbent a tampon is; one droplet representing the smallest amount and six droplets in a row for the most absorbent.
Tampon size – is the name used to describe the different sizes available, for instance the smallest tampons are sometimes called Light ones or Lites, then we have Regular, Super, Super Plus, Super Plus Extra and then the largest absorbency size is called Ultra.
Menstrual Flow - describes the amount of blood loss you notice on any one day.
You'll also find tampon boxes are colour coded for quick reference, such as yellow for regular.
