What you need to make a tampon do it yourself
Considering that they are intended for insertion into the vagina, in the manufacture of such an agent, complete sterility must be ensured. Otherwise, it is impossible to exclude the ingestion of foreign microorganisms, which will aggravate the disease. Vaginal mucosa is very susceptible to bacteria. It is also important that this is the way to the female internal organs.
In addition to the necessary materials from which the tampon is supposed to be made, you need to prepare:
- Sterile gloves. They are bought at the pharmacy, and those that are usually used by gynecologists to inspect patients should ask the pharmacist.
- Strong thread
- Disinfectant solution. This may be a medical alcohol or one of the many tools that are used to wipe the skin before injection.
Before opening the packaging with gloves, raw materials, it is necessary to thoroughly wash with soap and water. And do not do some homemade tampons at once. For each use, a freshly prepared hygienic product is necessary, otherwise it will not be possible to observe sterility.
What are hand-made tampons?
For therapeutic tampons use soft materials that can hold the medicine on the surface of the funds. It is also necessary that it can be inserted into the vagina without experiencing significant discomfort. Distinction of material divides such funds into:
- Gauze or bandage,
Gauze tampons or bandage
Before you start making a tampon, you must sanitize the scissors and the thread that will become an exhaust for him with clean hands. If you use the tool is assumed for a short time, you can do without it. Then the gauze pad should be made long enough so that after use it can be easily removed by pulling the tip.
For one agent, 70 cm of bandage is sufficient. It is folded so that the cut edges are inside. This is necessary for the sake of security, otherwise individual threads may remain in the vagina. The tampon should be in the form of a long, dense enough tube. First, the gauze is folded in several layers in length, then in width. Immediately after twisting, the tampon is soaked with medicine and inserted into the vagina.
To facilitate this process, you can wrap a ballpoint pen in the middle. Previously, it must be disinfected and enclosed so that it can be easily removed immediately after the introduction of funds.

It folds as tightly, the thread is securely fixed at the end of the tube. The medicine swab is inserted so that it stays outside.
A strip of gauze is needed for such a tool with a length of 15-20 cm. After it is cut off, it is necessary to take a cotton ball with a diameter of 2-3 cm. Dimensions are important, because too large a tampon cannot be led, and a small one is not enough to dose the medicine.
The bandage is folded in half, a cotton ball is inserted inside. The cut edges of the material should only be at the tip of the tool. A tampon made of cotton and bandage has the appearance of a small bag, firmly tied with an exhaust thread.
When tampons are used to treat
Sometimes these tools are used to pass urine for research, if there was no hygienic tampon at hand. This is necessary so that vaginal secretions do not get into the material. But more often homemade products are needed for therapeutic purposes:
- Therapy of adnexitis, cervicitis, colpitis, parametritis. In such a case, special mud is often used, which does not soak the whole tampon, but a cotton ball. It begins to work under the influence of heat, expanding blood vessels and increasing the blood supply to tissues,
- Disposal of inflammatory diseases, as well as postoperative recovery. It uses aloe, propolis, other medical and folk remedies,
- Restore normal vaginal microflora. To do this, use tampons with soda from thrush. For the impregnation of the necessary composition of 1 teaspoon and a glass of cooled boiled water.

If it is inserted into the vagina, then no longer than 5 minutes. Soda is a fairly aggressive environment, which, if used improperly, can cause dryness of the mucous membrane and increase the symptoms of thrush. This way you can be treated 2 times a day during the week. Soda solution, used vaginally with a tampon, actively fights the fungus. It will help to cope with the most unpleasant symptoms of the disease.
