There are many products out there to choose from and some will be better suited to you than others. Sanitary Owl offers a choice of the most popular products available and these are shown below.
The original commercial tampon. This has a biodegradable cardboard applicator.
Comes in a much smaller package than the typical applicator tampon. To use the applicator, you must extend the smaller tube by pulling it out.
Has a plastic applicator which some find can slide more easily into the vagina and therefore more comfortable to insert.
Has the same smooth plastic insertion as the Pearl, but with the benefits of the compact Compak applicator.
Comes in a much smaller package than the typical applicator tampon. To use the applicator, you must extend the smaller tube by pulling it out. The tampon expands widthways which some find has a better fit.
Doesn’t have an applicator and therefore is inserted into your vagina using your finger. These tampons are very small to carry around with you and there is less waste to dispose of.
These are 100% organic cotton tampons. They are plastic-free, chlorine-free and no rayon.
These are thin yet absorbent sanitary pads. The day pads (Normal and Long) allow you the option of having wings (called “Plus”). Wings are tabs that wrap around the sides of the your underwear to add additional leak protection and help secure the pad in place.
These are ultra thin pantyliners

Remember: You should use the smallest absorbency tampon appropriate for your period, and only use tampons when you are menstruating. For more information about the risks of using tampons see here.
