My First Tampon Story:
One of the Peebuddy’s customer shares her experience on how she substituted sanitary pads with the Peebuddy’s Applicator tampons. She hated using pads as it felt like using adult diapers and was too messy because of the menstrual fluids especially during the heavy flow days. She had troubles with the frequent washroom visits and the restrictions which she had to face due to the fear of a possible leakage. Once she learnt about Peebuddy’s range of women hygiene products from one of her friends and she was recommended to use Applicator tampons. The first ever experience of an Applicator Tampon was simply awesome…. She loved the product….Tampons provided her the much needed flexibility, she didn’t have to experience the fear of leakage and could confidently carry on with the strenuous activities like swimming, rock climbing, etc during those special days even.
