Our capsule tampon works similarly to other compact tampons you may have used in the past, and offers the same protection as a full size tampon. The difference is that it's small enough to fit in your hand or pocket, because the tampon is placed in a smaller, extendable applicator.
To use, pull on the plastic applicator stem to snap it into place. The rounded tip should be toward you and the string should hang down. Holding the applicator with your thumb and middle finger, put the tip of the applicator into the vaginal opening and gently push it into your vagina. While holding the applicator, push the smaller tube all the way into the larger tube. This will release the tampon. Once you gently remove the applicator, the tampon should be comfortably inside you, with the string hanging outside of your body.
Now, you can place the applicator back into the wrapper and dispose of it in the waste bin. Never flush the applicator or the tampon.
