Tampons: Tampons may be very acceptable socially and the adverts seem to portray a variety of benefits. They are potentially very dangerous instruments/devices. They collect blood and debris and "bugs/germs" love this and given that the tampon is kept in for some time it would not surprise me if you have vaginal irritation or vaginitis. Tampons are probably not for you.
