OK so this is a part of life so I apologize to anyone who reads this and is embarrassed.

I am wondering if anyone has seen tampons in India that have applicator. I have found the OB tampons in many places but I have tried many times and cannot seem to get them to sit nicely. Is this the only brand that exists in India?

Gummibear55,

Not sure but have you tried Le Marche which is a department type store in Basant Lok Market (Vasant Vihar) in New Delhi.

Not sure about what they exactly stock but they do stock many different western brands.

The OB tampons are available in two sizes 'Normal and Super'. Hope you have checked both the sizes. If not try the other one also, that may sit properly.

Now that I'm thinking about it, I once saw tampons with applicator (you mean like tampax, right?), at the dollar shop. Apart from that, only the OB. So you're probably not going to find it, unless by accident, when some shop temporarily stocks them.

it's a little off topic but i just remembered how weird it was to shop for pads in big bazaar, i was just looking, thinking which to choose cause they were mostly brands i didnt know & immediately they sent me one of the assistants with a catalogue where you can see the actual pads... it is practical but at the same time weird cause it's still a personal thing to buy & you don't want a whole discussion about it with someone you don't know

and once i tried to check some lipsticks & two assistants practically jumped me to put them on my lips, at home we usually test them on the hand without any assistants... i was totally freaked out & ran away

I figured out a solution. I had a few tampax left over. The super size applicator works with the regular size OB so I a just rinsing the applicator after I use it and re-using it with the OB. Seems to work for now.

I found tampons with applicators in Bangalore. They are available at Health and Glow on MG road in Bangalore. The brand is Helen something. Haven't used them yet. Only bought 3 boxes (95inr) at least I know they exist in India

I've found them at ordinary street-stall type chemists, I think it's just a matter of hunting them down.

Thank God, we men do not have to worry about such things

This is probably the first thread that I beat Nick in posting a comment - I really do not know why I opened the thread !!!!

I guess I was curious - after I got married in Hyderabad many moons ago, I remember visiting a Chemist store with her and she wanted to buy pads. I told the sales girl "Have any OB?". You should have seen the look on the sales girls's face not to mention my wife's face. I paid for it before my wife could blink and the rest I shall leave to your imagination.

Cheers

Best bought online

Such things are best bought online!! The shop people look at you weird otherwise...

If you need online stores, check out Healthkart or Cilory.. Maybe you will find some on Indiatimes/ rediff as well, but i would suggest you keep away from them...

And anyway, no idea about applicator or not - just know my wife orders OB
