How to Use O.B. Tampons

Save

O.B. tampons offer women an unobtrusive feminine hygiene product with their unique design, requiring no applicator. A female gynecologist came up with the simple design during the 1940s, which featured nothing more than a cotton-blend tampon and a string. Using an O.B. tampon safely and effectively doesn't require very much as they are designed to be inserted easily with just a finger.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water.

  • Remove the plastic wrapper from the O.B. tampon.

  • Pull the string from the tampon slightly so that the bottom of the tampon flares out a bit.

  • Press your index finger into the opening at the base of the tampon.

  • Sit with your legs apart, or stand with one leg up on the toilet or the edge of the tub.

  • Aim your finger, in the base of the tampon, at a slight angle towards your lower back.

  • Insert the tapered end of the O.B. tampon into the opening of your vagina. Slide it in about 2 inches until it can't be pushed in any further. Make sure the string is dangling outside of your vagina.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water.
