Insertion of tampons during periods; Before you get all defensive about how comfortable tampons can be compared to pads and other period sanitary measures, remember you are reading this facts because after treating a yeast infection, in less than six months you are treating another one. The application of tampons desire a sterile condition, your hands must be washed clean, finger nails clean and the tampons itself must not be contaminated, sealed and so on. If your vagina is sensitive to tampons then ruling tampons out wouldn't kill you for a 3-7days period a month.
