Worth The Hassle: 5 Reasons To Consider Changing Your Tampon

No one ever wants to put in a new tampon, but sometimes it can actually be worth the inconvenience. Here are five reasons to consider changing your tampon.

1. It’s fun to use every tampon in the box

There’s a reason tampons are sold in packs of eight or more—you’re supposed to give each one a shot! While it’s true that the easiest course of action is to just put one tampon in and forget about it for the week, doing so means that you miss out on trying a bunch of really cool new tampons. Don’t let the fear of changing your tampon keep you from having fun. Treat yo-self!

2. You can put the old one in a time capsule

At the moment, a used tampon doesn’t mean a whole lot to you. But 30 years from now, it’ll be a completely different story. So if you’ve got an old tampon inside you, consider taking it out and burying it in a time capsule. When sweet memories of soaked tampons come rushing back to you as you dig it up several decades from now after you’ve gone through menopause, you’ll be glad you did. It’ll remind you of the happy days before your body betrayed you.

3. It’s an easy way to cut weight before a wrestling weigh-in

There’s no quicker way to drop a couple last-minute pounds than to swap out a full tampon with a fresh one!

4. It’s a good way to pass some time if you’re bored at church

Church can be extremely boring, and if you’re looking to kill a little time during a long sermon, why not change your tampon? Not only will it keep you entertained for a couple of minutes, but it’ll also give you a nice little break from learning about God, who isn’t even real.

5. You may need to give birth

You can’t deliver a baby with a tampon blocking things up, so if you’re pregnant and you get the sense you’re about to give birth, it’s a good idea to take out your tampon, give birth to your baby, and then put in a new tampon. That way, the baby doesn’t get stuck coming out, and your tampon doesn’t get any gross baby goo on it.
