The tampon is a type of feminine hygiene product used during the menstruation period by women to absorb the menstrual flow that occurs. These products, unlike sanitary pads, are structurally different and are inserted into the vaginal opening and expand on absorbing the discharged blood. The common choice of material for the manufacturing of these products are rayon and may sometimes have a blend of cotton. Though small in size, these are capable of absorbing a large quantity of fluid for the purpose it is used in.
