A: Each tampon manufacturer should include a warning about TSS on the package leaflet of the product. By correct use, and abiding usage rules, TSS risk will be minnimized. The Beppy tampon does NOT contain dioxin nor rayon and therefor the risk is considerably reduced.
A: The Beppy tampon is produced in-house under supervision in the Netherlands. The manufacturer is ISO certified, which means that the product and the protocols meet the international standard. A quality product made in the Netherlands.
No, it is not possible. Beppy will stay in your body. The only opening in your cervix is too small for any tampon to pass through. It may happen that the tampon moves a little further than necessary, for example if you accidentally inserted a second tampon or had sex. Even then, you get the tampon out again.
A: There are several tampons, some are equipped with an applicator, others consist of spherical cotton. The Beppy is a special soft sponge. Fold the tampon between your index finger and thumb, so you can easily insert the tampon. Always read the manual.
A: Oh yes, the tampon fits easily. Once you’ve inserted it, it takes on the shape of your body, that’s why the tampon is so comfortable that you don’t feel it.
A: Just as with an ordinary tampon, in principle, the Beppy is well-positioned if you don’t feel it. It should be placed well into your body, but even if the tampon is slightly lower, the Beppy tampon still works fine.
A: It depends on what you are planning to do that day. If you are going swimming or having sex, then it's better to place the tampon deep. When you're having sex this will automatically happen. For "normal" use of the tampon just place right after the pelvic floor muscle.
A: How long you can wear a tampon depends on the strength of your menstrual flow. During the first, heavier days of your period, you will probably need to change the Beppy tampon after 2 to 6 hours. During the lighter days, the tampon can be used for approximately 6 to 8 hours. Always remember to remove the last tampon at the end of your period. After a while you will begin to get a feel for how often you need to remove the tampon.
A: Using the Beppy tampon is rather like using contact lenses, you need a little practice to get the hang of it. The Beppy tampon can be most easily removed when you are relaxed; especially on the first few occasions you need to take your time with it. The Beppy tampon can be easily removed, because the tampon has a handy loop that you can stick your finger through and pul.
A: After making love the tampon will be somewhat deeper than when you wear the tampon without having made love. Right after intercourse, your vagina is still maximally stretched, so wait a bit before removing the tampon. It is easiest to remove it whilst taking a shower or having a bath, then you are nicely relaxed and your vagina is ready for removing tampon.
A: Wrap the Beppy tampon in a piece of toilet paper and throw it in the waste disposal. In many public toilets you will find specially placed sanitary bins for this purpose. Never throw the tampon in the toilet. That could cause blockage of the toilet.
A: The tampon can never get lost inside you, because it can’t go anywhere. The passage between your vagina and your cervix is far too small to allow a tampon through. The tampon catches the menstrual fluid optimally if the tampon is placed past the pelvic floor muscles and against the cervix. If the tampon is placed behind the cervix, the tampon does not work. If it locates too deep behind the cervix and you can not remove yourslef do no wait longer than 8 hours consult with your health professional or help of your partner.
A: Sometimes it can happen that Beppy is so deeply inserted that Beppy is leaking. Beppy is then behind the cervix. The menstrual fluid flows from the cervix. Beppy optimally absorbs the menstrual fluid, when Beppy sits on the pelvic floor muscles and against the cervix. Like any tampon, Beppy can leak on the heavier days after 2-4 hours. Then it's time to remove Beppy and bring in a new one.
A: Above all, stay calm. The more you relax, the more easily you get the tampon out. Pull the tampon out with your fingers. Search for the loop and use that to pull it out. If this does not work, try to perform a vaginal douche in order to make the tampon heavier. In case that also does not work and you can't easily find the loop, you can crouch and use 2 fingers (tweezers grip) to pull out the tampon. You may use some light pressure.
A: Normally yes. The first few times may be a little harder. The first time you use the tampon, we advise that you not put it in very deep, so you can practice to insert and remove the tampon. After using it more times and you have more experience you can insert it deeper. After sex you should wait about 20 minutes until the vagina is less stretched. You can crouch and push slightly so that the tampon comes down. It may happen that the tampon moves next to the cervix. In this case it is more complicated to take the tampon out. You can never leave the tampon in for longer than 8 hours. If it is impossible to get the tampon out you must go to the doctor or gynecologist within 24 hours. If you have a tilted uterus, it may be more difficult to remove the tampon. Check with your doctor or gynecologist.

A: With Beppy tampons, you can do anything you like doing during your period. They offer you the opportunity to play sports, go swimming and even make love as normal during your period if you want to, since the Beppy tampon absorbs the menstrual blood inside your body.
A: Yes, insert the tampon before you go scuba diving and make sure it's inserted deep enough. You can easily scuba dive 2-3 hours with the Beppy tampon.
A: When you’re excited, your vagina is more stretchable than in a non-excited state. If the tampon is at body temperature, it is soft and flexible like the wall of the vagina. For a man, it may feel like coming up against the cervix (this is something a man often feels). If you are making love with your regular partner, he may well feel a difference (because he knows you so well physically).
A: If you use Beppy, your vagina will simply be moistened naturally, this happens at the beginning of the vagina. Beppy is deeper. Of course you can use extra lubricant without problems.
A: Yes that is possible. The chances of leaking are only bigger. Make sure you change your tampon regularly

A: Yes, this is even very comfortable. You can move as often as you want in your sleep, Beppy remains safe in place - unlike a sanitary napkin. Although your Beppy may carry a little longer at night, blood loss is usually lighter if you lie down. However, you always have to go right before bedtime and bring a new tampon immediately after you get up and follow maximum use duration instructions.
