Summary

This cycle I gave the DAME reusable tampon applicator a review. Trying this product meant breaking my 5+ year streak of not using any tampons. The DAME reusable tampon applicator is exactly what it sounds like – a device to insert tampons that can be washed and reused. Many period-havers need to use an applicator tampon because it’s easier for them to insert with their disability, their size, or other reasons.

Introduction

The concept is pretty simple. The DAME has three total pieces. A cover, the open cylinder where the tampon is inserted, and the “plunger” that will push the tampon through the opening just like a disposable plastic tampon applicator. This product is not a “no-waste” product. Each DAME tampon is wrapped in clear plastic and the tampon itself will be thrown away after use (tampons are not flushable and do not magically dissolve in water.)

Első benyomásom a termékről.

My first view of the dame tampon applicator when it launched a few years ago was from the POV of a cup user with no mobility or access issues – I didn’t understand why this product needed to exist. I am not afraid to touch my own body and blood, I use a cup, but that wasn’t always the case. When I switched to a cup it was an adjustment as a lifelong applicator tampon user. In the US virtually all of the tampons sold come with a cardboard or plastic applicator. I’d wager if you’re an American you may just be learning that most countries around the world don’t use an applicator to insert their tampons; they insert with a finger. Many users require an applicator and can’t use a menstrual cup or disc. An applicator can provide reach and access plus it is usable with one hand.

Hogy hozd ki belőle a legtöbbet?

The DAME reusable tampon applicator and similar designs aren’t designed for me, but that doesn’t mean I can’t see their value and place in the world. I am always learning and working on my outlook. The eco-friendly lens often forgets that many products we see as “wasteful” are vital for those with disabilities. A reusable alternative makes sense, more so than simply insisting people go without!
