Tips and Tricks

Thanks for being a DAME Changer and giving D a go. It means the world to us.

Using D for the first few times requires a bit more care than a disposable applicator, it's not single use, so a few more things have to be considered. Like all new things, it might take a few goes to find what works for you.  

Here are some pointers to help make being a period pioneer that much easier - but please do get in touch if you'd to chat more about using your D.


Tampon string

Some knots on tampon strings can be a little loose causing it to snag when you withdraw your D. If this happens, no worries, it will free itself when pulled gently. 

Tip: You can always pull the knot tight, just to be sure.


Applicator petals


Our bodies are all different. If your tampon is not fully releasing, keep your D inside you, and try gently removing at different angles until it does.  Clenching your pelvic floor while removing the applicator can help too. 
Tip: Push the plunger all the way in so it clicks with the applicator. After a few goes, you'll soon find it easy.
Organic cotton tampons have no plastic sheath or synthetics, just cotton. Pull out your tampon slowly and gently. 
Tip: Always use the lowest possible absorbency for your flow on that day.
