How to make a tampon at home


Gynecological therapy in the vast majority of cases is based on an integrated approach. A key factor in the success of local treatment of women's diseases is to ensure quality access of existing components to the epicenter of the problem. Irrigation, baths, douching sometimes do not fulfill this condition, therefore it is most rational to use personal tools for this purpose. How to make a tampon for gynecology independently, this article will tell.

Why the remedies for critical days are not suitable for gynecological treatment

It should be understood that the usual hygienic means that women use to protect during menstruation, is a deliberately different task. They are designed to absorb abundant blood discharge, while during the period of therapy requires the maximum impact of the drug drug.

It is difficult to impregnate an agent manufactured industrially with the active substance, especially with a viscous consistency medicine. And if this can be done, problems with the procedure of inserting the device into the vagina are not excluded (the vaginal cylinder may increase in size, as in the photo, even before the procedure begins).

Another argument against industrial tampons is the possibility of a feeling of dryness in the vagina due to the high absorbent properties of the compressed material.

With which diseases can homemade tampons come in handy

Most often, homemade products are used in the treatment of the following gynecological diseases:

  • adnexitis (inflammation of the appendages),
  • cervicitis (inflammation of the cervix),
  • colpitis (lesions of the vaginal mucosa),
  • parametritis (infectious-inflammatory damage to the tissue around the uterus),
  • candidiasis ("thrush").

Materials for production

Before you do your own swab for treatment in gynecology, you should make sure that the house has everything you need:

  • sterile gauze or bandage
  • sterile medical gloves
  • needle and thread,
  • scissors,
  • cotton wool.

All tools used must be decontaminated beforehand with an alcohol solution or by boiling. The thread used will also be treated properly with an antiseptic.

Cotton-gauze swab

Consider the instructions with a photo: how to make a medical tampon with a bandage and cotton.

  1. Wash your hands thoroughly, but rather use medical gloves.
  2. Separate a strip about 20 cm long from the bandage.
  3. Roll a cotton ball, the diameter of which is 2-3 cm.
  4. Roll the resulting ribbon in half and place a cotton ball between the formed layers of matter.
  5. With a thread treated with alcohol, tie the gauze directly under the cotton ball.
  6. Apply a medicine to the cotton ball and insert it inside the vagina.

If everything is done correctly, then as a result the head of the tampon should turn out to be rather dense, otherwise problems with the introduction of the product may arise.

Bandage (gauze)

Let's talk about how to make a tampon with your own hands from gauze or bandage.

  1. Conduct preparatory hygiene procedures.
  2. Cut a tape from the bandage equal to a length of 40-50 cm. Do the same with gauze, focusing on a width of about 10 cm.
  3. Roll the resulting strip along, carefully tucking the edges inward. This will avoid the occurrence of inflammation through the fault of the threads remaining in the vagina.
  4. Roll gauze into a tight cylinder to make something resembling an industrial tampon. The result can be seen in the picture.
  5. Saturate the gauze cylinder with the medicinal composition and proceed according to the instructions of the gynecologist.

The product using the finished tampon instead of the frame

Some women complain that it is inconvenient for them to inject a homemade vaginal cylinder or a ball of cotton wool and a bandage. There may be several reasons for this:

  • insufficiently dense rolling of a cotton ball,
  • poor fixation of a cotton ball with a thread, due to which the head of the resulting product holds the shape poorly, and this prevents comfortable penetration inside the body,
  • excessive volume of homemade gauze cylinder.

What to do if the introduction of self-made means causes inconvenience? Life hacking will help to get out of the situation. To use it you will need ready hygienic tampons, which are sold in any pharmacy.

The main condition is that each product has an individual packaging (an example is the production of Obi or Kotex trademarks).

The action algorithm is as follows (see photo):

  1. Do not remove the protective mica! Simply rub the surface of the product with alcohol to destroy the bacteria.
  2. Cut a strip of about 20-25 cm from the bandage. If necessary, you can make a two-layer construction (absorption capacity will be higher).
  3. Bend the resulting strip in half and wrap the purchased product with it. Try to wrap the side sections of the bandage inside.
  4. Using a strong thread, fix the resulting structure and proceed to the treatment prescribed by the doctor.

The purchased hygienic product will play the role of a framework, due to which the introduction procedure will become much more comfortable.

As you can see, making your own cotton-gauze products for the local treatment of women's ailments is not difficult. However, if you still have some questions and doubts, the video will help resolve them: how to make a gynecological tampon at home.

Treatment effectiveness

Treatment by this method should be prescribed by doctors depending on the disease. Most often, hygiene products may be needed to treat the following diseases:

  • thrush,

  • cervical erosion,
  • polyps
  • recovery postoperative period,
  • myoma,
  • adnexitis,
  • colpit,
  • to restore normal vaginal microflora,
  • endometritis.

An integrated approach to any treatment involves the conduct of general and local therapy to achieve a quick and effective result. Getting to the inflamed area is not always possible with the help of baths, irrigation and douching. Gynecological pharmacy tools that are used by women for protection during critical days have a slightly different task - maximum absorption of bleeding.

In the treatment of female diseases the main purpose of the tampon - impregnation and release of drug content. It is quite problematic and inconvenient to saturate it with an active substance, as a rule, a viscous consistency. It is for these purposes that it is recommended to use personally prepared means.

Necessary materials

The procedure for the manufacture of a tampon should take place in the most sterile conditions and from pure materials, as it will be introduced into the vagina. Materials and tools that will be needed:

  1. Vata.
  2. Bandage.
  3. Gauze.
  4. Scissors.
  5. Needle and thread.
  6. Sterile gloves.

Disinfect instruments can be alcohol solution or by boiling, the thread can be treated with antiseptic.

Manufacturing procedure

Depending on which treatment was prescribed by the doctor, the shape of the finished product will be determined - round or cylindrical. If the medicine is recommended to be placed inside the vagina and to prevent its leakage, then more convenient to choose the shape of the ball. For impregnation with medicine it will be more convenient to use a cylindrical form.

In appearance, a cylindrical tampon is similar to a regular pharmacy. You can make a cotton gynecological swab in the following way:

  1. A cylinder is formed from a piece of cotton wool and wrapped with a thread to maintain shape.
  2. Formed wool is wrapped in a bandage or gauze, the ends are cut into 2 pieces and tied at the base.

Cotton wool will keep its shape well and will not crumble, and the rope part will be outside for easy removal.

You can make a tampon of round bandage and cotton wool in the following way:

  1. A ball with a diameter of about 3 cm rolls out of cotton wool.
  2. A strip of sterile bandage length of 20 cm folded in half.
  3. A cotton ball is placed between the layers of the bandage, tightened and tied with a thread.

For some treatments, the drug should be placed directly inside the tampon. In this case, the ball must first be processed and then wrapped with gauze or a bandage.

It is not difficult to make a treatment agent, but in case of a poor roll of the ball or its large diameter, it will be rather inconvenient to introduce an intimate hygiene product into the vagina.

Before the procedure, the tampon is moistened in the drug and gently inserted into the vagina. The introduction of homemade hygiene products is not always convenient, therefore, as a basis, you can use a pharmacy hygiene product in individual packaging. You can make a gauze pad on the finished frame in the following way:

  1. Process the protective film of the purchased product with an alcohol solution.
  2. A strip 15–20 cm long is cut from the bandage and folded in half.
  3. Purchased at the pharmacy product wrapped in a sterile bandage and fixed with a strong thread. Be sure to leave small ends that will be necessary to remove funds back.

If homemade hygiene products are not felt when moving and do not cause discomfort, they are done correctly. You can make several tampons by yourself, depending on the duration of the prescribed treatment, and store them in a clean package.

Types of tampons

In gynecological practice, depending on the nature of the disease, various types of tampons can be prescribed. They differ in the composition of impregnation and have different directions of action:

  • Therapeutic mud - improves blood circulation and dilates blood vessels. The ball is impregnated with mud composition, after which it turns into gauze or bandage.

  • Inflammatory processes of the reproductive system are treated with the help of aloe juice, propolis and other pharmaceutical preparations.
  • To eliminate unpleasant sensations when thrush apply soda tampons. The solution is prepared as follows: in 1 glass of warm water dissolve 1 tsp. soda The swab moistened in this composition is injected for 5 minutes, as long-term exposure to the soda solution can cause the vaginal mucosa to dry out. Conducting such procedures 2 times a day, you can get rid of thrush without the use of medicines.

Make a gynecological swab at home can be quickly and easily, and the effectiveness of treatment in this way has long been proven. Do not forget that self-treatment of female gynecological diseases is undesirable.

The body's response to the use of a self-selected agent can be unpredictable and aggravate the situation.

What a tampon should look like

Surely everyone knows what a hygienic tampon looks like, that it should be used during critical days. The tool has an oblong cylindrical shape with a pointed end on the one hand, a rope on the other. Medical tampons are slightly different in appearance, the material used is the same. The tool looks like a small ball with a tail. There may be medicine inside it. Material for manufacturing - pressed cotton wool, or a similar synthetic substitute. The size and shape of the funds are selected according to the anatomy of the vagina. The tampon should easily get inside, be in the vagina for some time, without causing discomfort. It can also be easily removed after use. Starting to make a tampon with your own hands, you need to focus on the parameters of the finished similar tools. All that is necessary for the manufacture of tampons:

The form is selected on the basis of the medicinal product, which must be used. If it is placed inside a tampon, it is better to make a cotton ball and wrap it with gauze. If it is envisaged to soak homemade tampons in the medicine - it is suitable, both oblong and round.

What is needed for the manufacture of tampons

A tampon is a hygienic that fits inside the vagina. It must be sterile. Material: cotton wool, bandage, gauze are used only new. Scissors and other equipment that is necessary for the manufacture of tampons, sterilized in boiled water or wiped with alcohol. Wash your hands or wear sterile gloves. In such conditions, make a tampon for the treatment of gynecological diseases. Ready-made homemade tampons are placed in a new plastic bag. You can apply as needed. Do it for a few days or for the entire course of treatment. Use no more than 10 hours. Apply as directed by a physician.

In the manufacture it is necessary to take into account that wool has the ability to expand when moisture enters the vagina. To prevent this, it is tightly wrapped, tied with a thread. The tip of homemade tampons should extend beyond the vagina. If it is not, get the tool will be problematic.

Homemade cylindrical tampons

Production of the tool will take no more than 10 minutes. The next will be done in 5 minutes. Materials: scissors, thread, cotton wool, gauze. The tampon is obtained like a hygienic thing that should be used during menstruation.

  1. It is necessary to tear off a piece of cotton of such a size so that when it is tightly folded, a cylinder will look like a regular tampon from a store.
  2. Twist the cotton and wrap over the thread. You can use the usual thread.
  3. That cotton wool did not get out, did not stick out in different directions. Cotton swab wrapped with gauze. You can use a bandage instead. The ends must be cut into 2 pieces. Tie at the base. This part of the tampon will be outside.

Treat with medication, enter into the vagina. If homemade tampons do not cause discomfort, are not felt when moving - everything is done correctly. After use, it is removed at the ends of the bandage that are outside.

This is all the material that is needed for the manufacture of tampons. Fold the bandage in half. Place a cotton ball between the layers. Well pull off the bandage at the base. Tie thread. Form a round swab for treatment.

At first glance, nothing complicated. But the Internet is full of information when women complain that they can not put a finished tampon in the vagina. In this case, you should pay attention to such moments. There are three reasons for this: either the tool turned out too bulky, or the ball of cotton was weak, or the tampon was poorly formed when it was fixed with a thread. If the treatment involves the introduction of the drug inside the tampon, cotton wool is treated with the drug, then wrapped with a bandage.

There is another option for fast quality manufacturing. The pencil is wrapped with a strip of bandage, the tip is left. Put on him the drug. In this case, insert a tampon into the vagina along with a pencil. Then it must be carefully removed. The tampon of the bandage remains inside. Instead of a pencil, you can use the applicator from purchased hygiene products. Put in the vagina will be easier.

Result from use

Tampons are preparations made on the basis of bandage (gauze) and cotton wool and are often used in medical practice, especially in gynecology. Familiar hygienic tampons, which are sold in the retail network, have slightly different qualities and can only be used to absorb menstrual fluids.

Various medicines are applied to home-made products in the form of solutions, ointments, gels - depending on the clinical situation. The treatment regimen is established by the doctor.

And here more about tampons for girls.

Why are pharmaceutical hygiene products not suitable for treatment?

The pharmacy sells ordinary tampons that can only be used for hygienic purposes. Their main task is to absorb liquid. If used for treatment, the effect may be as follows:

  • after placing it in the solution, it can absorb a large amount of fluid and increase in size so that it will be difficult to insert into the vagina,
  • after applying a gel or ointment to the remedy, it can absorb everything into itself, and a minimal amount of medical substance will fall on the vaginal mucosa,
  • the tool will lead to excessive drying of the mucous, as they have a high absorption.

Materials needed for manufacturing

In order to make such products yourself, you will need the following tools:

  • Vata. In some cases, you can do without it. It is better to use sterile, and not just medical. Ordinary cotton pads should not be used, since their pressed surfaces do not have the necessary qualities.
  • Gauze or bandage. It is also better to use sterile materials purchased in a pharmacy. Bandage is better to take a wider.
  • Scissors. Pre-blade must be treated with alcohol or at least hot water.
  • Gloves - for greater sterility it is better to make tampons in them, if there is no such possibility, then you should wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
  • Needle and thread - you can without them, just have to properly tie the ends of gauze or bandage.

Cotton and gauze (bandage)

It is necessary to take a piece of cotton and form a ball out of it. It should be dense enough so that later there will be no difficulties with its introduction. Then from a gauze or bandage cut a rectangular area so that you can put a cotton ball inside, and collect material from above.

After that, stitch the top with threads (you can not do it), and then simply tie up with a long and thin piece of gauze or bandage. It should be borne in mind that the bands of gauze / bandage should protrude from the entrance to the vagina so that for them you can then remove the tampon.

If there is no cotton wool, you can “fill” the tampon with a few small pieces of gauze or a bandage instead.

Option of bandage (gauze)

It is necessary to take a section of the material with a minimum width of 10 cm and a length of 40-50 cm. Carefully, with the outer ends inward so that the threads then do not remain in the vagina, roll the gauze or bandage in the form of an ordinary hygienic tampon. Wrap the threads on top so that it does not lose its shape, but to release several ends (or one) for later extraction. To do this, you should use not ordinary sewing threads, but more durable ones, so that they will not break off.

Modification of a conventional tampon

For this, a hygienic tampon is used as a frame - you cannot remove the protective top from it. For disinfection, the protective film should be treated with some kind of antiseptic - Chlorhexidine, Septomirin or others. Then wrap a hygienic from all sides with gauze (wrap like candy, only a few times) or with a bandage, fix the construction with threads on top. The free end of the tampon is used for extraction.

For ease of extraction, you can tie a swab in the center, after it is already wrapped, a piece of gauze or a bandage with long ends.

How to use

  • wash your hands and hygiene genitals,
  • take a comfortable position - squatting, slightly bent or lying in bed on the back,
  • thumb and middle finger to hold the tampon, and his index to enter.

After this, it is necessary to take into account that when the solution is soaked with a solution, it may leak from the vagina a little. To prevent laundry damage, it is best to take extra protection.

If it is difficult to insert, the tampon may be too soft. In this case, it is better to use a version with a frame made from a conventional hygienic tampon or to make the base more dense.

Typically, tampons are laid once or twice a day. Duration from a week and more. If the woman is in a gynecological hospital, tampons are laid in the treatment room on the gynecological chair by a nurse.
