No string that rubs – and Soft-Tampons can be easily inserted and removed. Soft-Tampons make "uncomfortable days" as comfortable as possible! The wonderfully soft monthly hygiene that you won't notice at all.
What are Soft-Tampons? In principle, they are a small pink menstrual sponges made of ultra-soft foam, usually shaped like a heart. The organic shape fits gently into the sensitive female anatomy and makes the Soft-Tampon application comfortable and intuitive.The indicated heart shape slims the period sponge at the tip for easy insertion. The two wings pulled down form a trough on the underside. There you put your finger on when you push the tampon to its place.
Removing tampons without a string is also very easy:There is an integrated grip tab, which you can grip with just one finger, in order to remove the Soft-Tampon. If you prefer, you can also pull out the menstrual sponge with your index finger and thumb by pulling down one of the two wings.
The Original JOYDIVISION Soft-Tampons are – as their name suggests – wonderfully soft and, on top of that, especially kind to the skin. Dermatological studies prove the excellent tolerability. The foam tampons are made of environmentally friendly material that deliberately avoids chemical additives that do not belong in intimate hygiene. Internal irritations are practically non-existent with Soft-Tampons. That is also confirmed by the Oeko-Tex standard, which they have. Your health will be more than happy!
Advantages that also impress the users themselves. This was the result of a clinical study by Dermatest GmbH, which interviewed the test persons about the product. Already after the first application of Soft-Tampons, 75 percent of the women were convinced by the menstrual articles. 85 percent of the users rated the quality of the Soft-Tampons as good to very good.
Their application is as soft as the tampons themselves. Here we have put together a Soft- Tampons guide for you.
Instructions: Inserting the Soft-Tampons
- Wash your hands.
- Remove product from packaging.
- Moisten: If you moisten the tampon with a small amount of lubricant or clean water, it will be even easier to insert. However, before inserting the tampon, squeeze out the water to maintain its absorbency.
- Take the optimum position for insertion: for example, sitting in a squatting position or on the toilet.
- Grab the side of the tampon with two fingers and press it together.
- Place your fingers in the trough on the underside and insert it like a conventional tampon. The menstrual sponge sits perfectly when it clings to the cervix.
Instructions: Removing the Soft Tampons
- Wash your hands.
- Take optimal position for removal: preferably squat with broad legs.
- Press a little so that the tampon is pressed out. This works best when it is full.
- Grasp the grip tab with one finger and pull out the tampon.
Sometimes it's like curse: The Soft-Tampon simply won't come out because it's tilted or slipped up during sex. But don't panic. In this case, relaxation is the best way to get the soft piece out again. We have two tips for you in this case:
- Squat down and push hard, just like when you're defecating! This should allow the sponge in the vagina to gradually slide down so that you can grab it again with your fingers and pull it out.
- Just leave the tampon a little longer in the vagina so that it can really soak up. After all, the easiest way to remove the tampon is to let it soak up all over. A relaxing bath also can work miracles and usually leads to the expected success.
No, no more or less than when using a conventional tampon, if you wash your hands before and after. In contrast to conventional tampons, soft tampons are even hygienically packaged.
Consult your gynaecologist before use if you are using a spiral with a slightly protruding return cord for contraception. As a rule, there is no risk of the spiral being accidentally pulled out with the tampon. However, experience has shown that minimal bleeding (commonly known as spotting) can cause the end of the thread to stick to the top of the tampon. Then the spiral can be accidentally pulled out when changing the tampon.
We also offer the soft tampons in the "Mini" version. However, the material of the tampons is so variable that it always adapts to the female body shape. Conventional cotton tampons swell up and soft tampons already have their final size. The foam of the soft tampons can be easily compressed during insertion.
As with other hygiene articles for the period, the tampons should simply be disposed of with the household waste. Please put the outer packaging into the yellow sack and into the waste paper.
Please use each tampon only once, as this will no longer guarantee hygienic safety and high absorbency and can lead to infections. We therefore strongly advise against washing out the soft tampon and wearing it again.
No, Soft-Tampons are by no means a contraceptive as they do not kill sperm! After removal, the sperm can still migrate towards the uterus.
The tampon can be easily removed by pulling it out with your index finger or middle finger by the integrated grip straps. If it is still difficult to remove the vagina, we recommend that you squat down or sit on the toilet with your legs spread, as this will reduce the depth of the vagina from 9 to 10 cm to about 4 to 5 cm.
It is generally recommended to use the soft tampons on days with heavy bleeding, as a full tampon will then become very soft and can be easily pulled out. If the grip tab is not felt, simply form the index and middle fingers into "tweezers".
Midwives recommend its use even during pregnancy, as the soft tampon can prevent the penetration of bacteria.
Discoloration of the foam may occur before the shelf life has expired, but is completely harmless. The tampons can still be used. If the soft tampons have been exposed to UV radiation in the form of daylight or artificial light and atmospheric oxygen, under unfavourable circumstances the dye may degrade and discolour. This is a normal process and does not affect the properties or purity of the foam. Soft tampons are manufactured and packaged under hygienic conditions. The material meets the strict criteria of the Ökotex standard and is very kind to the skin (Study Dermatest GmbH 2012). Due to the sensitive area of application, we deliberately do not use colour-stabilizing additives.
It is important that the tampon is inserted deep enough - directly in front of the cervix. In addition, women who tend to lack lubrication may have a very dry vaginal entrance immediately after inserting the tampon, in which case a lubricant should also be used.
The wearing period must be adapted to the strength of the period. On stronger days a change after 3 to 5 hours is recommended, on weaker days the Soft-Tampon can be worn for approx. 5 to 8 hours. After sexual intercourse without a condom, the tampon should be replaced immediately.
The packaging consists of cardboard, plastic and aluminium foil, which are 100% recyclable. The soft tampon consists of a special environmentally friendly foam which is completely thermally recyclable. Therefore, there is absolutely nothing against soft tampons from an environmental point of view.
In opposition to conventional tampons the soft version doesn't swell up. For this reason, swimming with Soft-Tampons is no problem at all. Thanks to the stringless freedom nobody notices that you are wearing a monthly hygiene. The perfect tampons for swimming!
