One pushes the plug while making slide the tubes, which decreases the risks of infection by avoiding any contact between the fingers and the vulva.
- Without applicator . The plug, wrapped in a plastic film, is intended to be thorough with the fingers, which requires to be washed the hands before and to remake it afterwards. They take less place and are slightly less less expensive.

The tampon represents an interesting alternative to the sanitary towel, although he enjoys sometimes a bad reputation near the all young girls. Thus, a certain number of legends surround this object.
- the virgin young girls can carry tampons.
- the plugs are not toxic . This belief is due to the fact that on the notes of use systematically sold with the plugs, a warning on the risks of the “syndrome of the toxic shock is presented” (SCT).
