Sea Sponge Tampons Reuse - For Your Reproductive Health, 2 pks, (Jade & Pearl)

Free Gift For Order Over $50. Check out our gift selection.

Sea Pearls are completely natural sea sponge tampons containing no Dioxin or synthetic fibers. Sustainably harvested and reusable for six months or more, Sea Pearls are economical, easy to use, and earth friendly.

SUGGESTED USAGE

Insertion: First wash your hands thoroughly before, as well as after inserting your sponge. Wet your sponge with lukewarm water then thoroughly squeeze out any excess water. Twist up your sponge into the shape of a tampon then standing with one leg up or sitting on the toilet, with your free hand gently hold open the skin surrounding the vaginal opening. With your other hand place the tip of the twisted sponge at the opening of your vagina using your thumb and index finger or thumb and middle finger to push the sponge inside your body aiming upwards and back. The resistance you may feel when you try this is the normal pressure of your pelvic muscles which will help hold the sponge in place. 
 
Removal: We recommend changing your sponge every 4-6 hours. You should not leave your sponge in for any longer than 8 hours. When a sponge is ready to be changed it will begin to work its way to the vaginal opening as it is saturated. Simply feel for the perimeter of your sponge with your fingers, grasp it, and pushing with your pelvic muscles, pull out gently. 
 
Rinsing and Storage: Do not use harsh synthetic soaps on your sponge. You may however use a mild natural soap to wash your sponge with such as Dr. Bronnerís. Just add a few drops to your sponge when washing between removal times. If you do not have a disinfectant with you or access when out in public then wash your hands thoroughly and rinse your sponge out with water before reinserting.

FAQ

I have been using my sponge for about 3 days, and am noticing that it is slightly discolored. Is this normal? 
Sea Pearls are naturally bleached with hydrogen peroxide during the cleaning process. They may revert to their original, darker color after several uses. This is normal, but if it bothers you, they may be re-bleached in a solution of 1/2 hydrogen peroxide and 1/2 water. This will also discourage any bacterial growth and unpleasant odors. 
 
How do I remove the sponge? It sounds like a great idea, but I want to make sure it goes in and out easily. Have there been any issues with this in the past? 
Sponges are very easy to remove. Simply feel for the perimeter of the sponge, grasp it and pull gently. You may sew a piece of cotton string or dental floss to the sponge if you wish , but it is not necessary. Your sponge will not get lost! Some women have reported that removing the sponge is easiest when sitting on the john because you are very relaxed. We have never experienced any problems with this, and we have been using and selling sponges since 1974. 
 
If I cannot fit the sponge in comfortably, can I trim it to a smaller size? 
You may certainly trim your sponge to a smaller size. However, do not cut the sponge in half, as Sea Pearls are in a specific shape. Rather, hold the sponge, and trim around the perimeter until you reach the desired size. You should not feel any pressure if your sponge is the proper fit. 
 
Should I sterilize my sponge after my flow has stopped? Should I boil it? How should I store it until my next cycle? 
There are several ways to disinfect Sea Pearls. You may soak them in any one of these mixtures below for up to 30 minutes or more:  
 
1. A solution of 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide and 1/4 cup of water. This will also re-bleach the sponge if it becomes discolored from use. 
 
2. A solution of a few drops of Tea Tree Oil in a cup of warm water. Tea Tree oil is a very effective germicide and has been proven to inhibit up to 60 strains of bacteria, including S.Aureus. This will also eliminate any odor on your sponge. 
 
3. A solution of 1Tbsp. apple cider vinegar in 1 cup of warm water. 
 
4. A solution of 1 Tbsp. baking soda in one cup of warm water. 
 
5. A solution of 1 Tsp. Colloidal Silver to 1 cup of warm water. There is no pathogenic organism known that is not killed by Colloidal Silver in 6 minutes or less. Its use is also of benefit to women who suffer from recurrent candida (yeast) infections. 
 
*Soaking a sponge in the Tea Tree mixture we mention above then inserting it into the vagina is a great way to get rid of an active yeast infection. For some women it can be irritating so use discretion. 
 
You may boil your sponge for 2 minutes if you wish, however, we do not recommend it because it shrinks and toughens the sponge, and also shortens its useful lifetime.  
 
After your cycle is done and you have washed your sponge out thoroughly, air dry it (preferably in natural sunlight) and then store your sponges in their muslin bag or what ever carrier you have and store in a cool dry place. 
 
I was wondering if I can go swimming while using Sea Pearls tampons? What about menstrual blood in the lake? 
You may definitely use your sponge while swimming. The sponge will prevent any bacteria in the water from entering your vagina. We don't see any problem with your menstrual blood in the lake when you consider the millions of other organisms already in there. However, we would suggest that you use one of our disinfecting methods for your sponge after swimming in a lake or river. Have fun! 
 
What can I do if I am using a public restroom and don't feel comfortable rinsing out my sponge tampon? 
We suggest that you purchase 2 packs of Sea Pearls, so you will have 3 extra sponges as a backup. Simply drop your used sponge into a Ziploc (we sell a special cotton mini sponge tote bag for this purpose), and rinse them when you return home. 
 
How often do I need to replace Sea Pearls sponge tampons? 
Every woman is unique, emotionally, and physically, so sponges will deteriorate at different rates. Your sponges may last up to a year or more depending on how you handle, clean, and care for them. Having an extra set of sponges for back up is a good way to keep from being caught on your cycle without in case something unforeseeable happens. Some women have a set at home, in the car, and at work. When traveling out of the house it is a useful to have a zip lock bag or our sponge tote with a zip lock for when you use a public restroom or if you canít rinse at work. That way you can store the un-rinsed sponge safely until you can clean it later in the comfort of your home. Many women put their used ones into their compost heaps or otherwise returning them to the earth. You can also boil your old sponges and use them for cosmetic or artistic purposes. 
 
How long can I keep my sponge in? How will I know when it is full? Can I sleep with it in overnight? How much does it hold? 
Sponges are soft and textured like your vaginal wall and very east to remove. You will become more familiar with your menstrual flow and learn how frequently you need to rinse your sponge with each cycle. Sponges have an absorbency of 6-9 grams of fluid. Much like a regular tampon. We recommend changing your sponge every 4-6 hours. You can also sleep with your sponges in overnight but you should not leave your sponge in for any longer than 8 hours. They may leak when full, (as tampons do), so you may want to use them in combination with a thin panty liner or Lunapanties on your heaviest day. When a sponge is ready to be changed it will begin to work its way to the vaginal opening as it is saturated. Simply feel for the perimeter of your sponge with your fingers, grasp it, and pushing with your pelvic muscles, pull out gently. 
 
Is it okay to use 2 Sea Pearls tampons at once for heavy menses? 
It is perfectly alright to use 2 Sea Pearls at once as long as you are comfortable and remember to pull them both out to clean. 
 
Can it really be true that North American women throw away over 12 billion pads and 7 billion tampons every year? 
Sad to say, these staggering figures are conservative, based on a woman using 5-6 tampons a day, for 5 days a month, for 38 menstruating years. I personally have used sponges for 27 years. My 4 daughters have used them also, as have many of my friends. Just in our little circle that makes quite a dent, wouldn't you say? 
 
What causes Toxic Shock Syndrome? What is its relationship to tampon usage? 
The direct cause of TSS is the presence of the bacterium s. aureus in the bloodstream. Research has concluded that s. aureus enters the blood through wounds in the vagina known as cervical erosion. Research done on ordinary tampon usage reveals that tampons dry out the vaginal mucosa, especially toward the end of your period, creating tiny invisible wounds that may lead to vaginal and cervical ulcers. This may explain the close connection between TSS and tampons. Sea Pearls sponge tampons do not have the same drying effects as ordinary tampons.
